Deskripsi

ALICE was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, and where is the use of a book, thought Alice, without pictures or conversations? So she was considering in her own mind, (as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid,) whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain was worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when a white rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.


THERE was nothing very remarkable in that, nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to hear the rabbit say to itself "dear, dear! I shall be too late!" (when she thought it over afterwards, it occurred to her that she ought to have wondered at this, but at the time it all seemed quite natural); but when the rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat-pocket, looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket or a watch to take out of it, and, full of curiosity, she hurried across the field after it, and was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge. In a moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again.


The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way, and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly, that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself, before she found herself falling down what seemed a deep well. Either the well was very deep, or she fell very slowly, for she had plenty of time as she went down to look about her, and to wonder what would happen next. First, she tried to look down and make out what she was coming to, but it was too dark to see anything: then, she looked at the sides of the well, and noticed that they were filled with cupboards and book-shelves: here and there were maps and pictures hung on pegs. She took a jar down off one of the shelves as she passed: it was labelled "Orange Marmalade," but to her great disappointment it was empty: she did not like to drop the jar, for fear of killing somebody underneath, so managed to put it into one of the cupboards as she fell past it.


"Well!" thought Alice to herself, "after such a fall as this, I shall think nothing of tumbling down stairs! How brave they'll all think me at home! Why, I wouldn't say anything about it, even if I fell off the top of the house!" (which was most likely true.)

Chapter I

Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, and where is the use of a book, thought Alice, without pictures or conversations? So she was considering in her own mind, (as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid,) whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain was worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when a white rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.

There was nothing very remarkable in that, nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to hear the rabbit say to itself dear, dear! I shall be too late! (when she thought it over afterwards, it occurred to her that she ought to have wondered at this, but at the time it all seemed quite natural); but when the rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat-pocket, looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket or a watch to take out of it, and, full of curiosity, she hurried across the field after it, and was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge. In a moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again.

The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way, and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly, that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself, before she found herself falling down what seemed a deep well. Either the well was very deep, or she fell very slowly, for she had plenty of time as she went down to look about her, and to wonder what would happen next. First, she tried to look down and make out what she was coming to, but it was too dark to see anything: then, she looked at the sides of the well, and noticed that they were filled with cupboards and book-shelves: here and there were maps and pictures hung on pegs.

Well! thought Alice to herself, after such a fall as this, I shall think nothing of tumbling down stairs! How brave they'll all think me at home! Why, I wouldn't say anything about it, even if I fell off the top of the house! (which was most likely true.)

Down, down, down. Would the fall never come to an end? I wonder how many miles I've fallen by this time? she said aloud, I must be getting somewhere near the centre of the earth. Let me see: that would be four thousand miles down, I think— (for you see Alice had learnt several things of this sort in her lessons in the schoolroom, and though this was not a very good opportunity of showing off her knowledge, as there was no one to hear her, still it was good practice to say it over,) yes that's the right distance, but then what Longitude or Latitude-line shall I be in? (Alice had no idea what Longitude was, or Latitude either, but she thought they were nice grand words to say.)

Presently she began again: "I wonder if I

  • (2/5)
    The problem is this particular edition (Bookbyte digital), which is not complete, and does not include the introductory poems.
  • (3/5)
    A good way to introduce a child to the idea that words and sentences can have multiple meaning depending upon the context. A sort of point-of-view pontification.
  • (5/5)
    Great Illustration
  • (4/5)
    I don't feel like the modern illustration fits with the classic work for some reason. Otherwise the images are beautifully done.
  • (2/5)
    Ugh, I hate nonsense books. I get that this is for kids and the whole premise is fun nonsense. When Alice falls asleep she goes down into a rabbit hole and enters Wonderland, a place where everything is fun and nonsense. There is no point to anything and everyone is weird and can you tell how much I dislike this book. There is no plot, just a dumb kid named Alice, wandering around Wonderland talking to animals and packs of cards, playing croquet with flamingos and the like. Totally bonkers.
  • (3/5)
    There really is a lot of nonsense in this.
  • (4/5)
    It's hard to review 2 books at once. I loved the first book. But I was not impressed with the second. Like many, I've been spoiled by movies so I was very disappointed to find out the Jabberwocky was just a poem. I was also surprised at how young Alice truly is in the books. All-in-all was an interesting read.

    Alice in Wonderland vertelt het verhaal van de kleine Alice die in slaap sukkelt bij een uitstapje en in haar droom een wit konijn achterna rent door een pijp. Ze komt in een volledig andere wereld terecht en wordt geconfronteerd met de meest vreemde schepsels: eigenaardige dieren en levende kaarten, enzovoort. Allemaal zijn ze druk met zichzelf bezig en niet echt er op uit Alice beter te leren kennen. Die vraagt zichzelf trouwens geregeld af wie ze eigenlijk is. De gekste gebeurtenissen doen zich voor en de gekste teksten worden de lezer voorgeschoteld, tot Alice uiteindelijk weer ontwaakt.Achter de spiegel borduurt voort op dat thema, zelfs in een nog hogere versnelling. Alice geraakt in een spiegel en komt buiten het zichtsveld weer in een vreemde wereld terecht. Vooral de schaakfiguren beheersen hier de zaak. Er zijn andermaal tal van zonderlinge figuren. De dialogen hebben nog meer dubbele bodems dan tevoren. Maar het geheel geeft een zo mogelijk nog verwarder en daardoor ondoorgrondelijker indruk dan het vorige verhaal. Op de duur wordt het - zeker bij een lectuur voor kinderen - gewoon ontoegankelijk. Het einde is vrij abrupt.

    Very nicely read. Enjoyable audiobook.
  • (4/5)
    This edition contains both "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland" and "Through The Looking-glass" As with the general understanding of the two stories is mainly presented to today's culture through the Disney's animated classic, most people know of both these stories. Upon reading them both, I noticed the elements that were used from each of them. A majority of it was obviously from "Alice's Adventures" with only some pieces from "Looking-glass" added.
    In my opinion "Alice's Adventures" was much more enjoyable when I read it. I enjoyed the poetic elements in "Looking-glass" but for overall likability, I side with "Alice's Adventures"

    hard to believe i've never read this but wonderful story
  • (5/5)
    I once read Alice in Wonderland when I was younger and I thought it was okay. Not amazing, but okay. I reread it now a few years later in this edition and I think it was the illustrations that did it for me. I really enjoyed the story. The pictures brought so much to the story. I would recommend this edition. 5 out of 5 stars.

    An Exercise in Insanity

    This book was insane. The adventures she had and the creatures she met...It all sounded like what a bad acid trip would be like.

    I'm honestly not sure I enjoyed it. This may require a re-read in the future.

    It was okayy..

    Fantastic book! Wonderfully illustrated!
  • (5/5)
    I won't even try to write a review. Just to say not sure why I haven't read this for at least fifteen years.
  • (4/5)
    Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is not one of my favorite books. But this edition has really marvelous graphics that improve upon the story. If you like this book, this edition would certainly be worth adding to your collection as it is beautiful.
  • (4/5)
    Okay, so we all know this story, most of us know it very well. It's an absurd children's book, and as I listened, I kept thinking about how much my preschool aged granddaughters would love the overall silliness of this classic.

    I listened to the new Audible production performed by Scarlett Johannson. I was very impressed with her ability to change voices, which was so extreme, I wondered how much of it was done in post-production. If it is all her, with no electronic modification, I'm very impressed. Movie directors should be able to utilize her voice skills for so many characters.

    At any rate, the rating is primarily from the performance. Surprisingly, I am not a fan of the story at all (I'm not a fan of absurdist literature - it's like bizarro books today: completely senseless). Oh well, to each his own.

    I'd recommend this for people who enjoy classic children's literature and for those who enjoy hearing a book skillfully read.

    Addressing strange and difficult issues as time, size and perspective, transformation and introducing the game theory almost a hundred years before it was presented as a mathematical idea in the conventional way, amongst other philosophically difficult ideas - and then engage children successfully, is a great achievement - leaving the readers of all ages curious about the nature of our existence - as compared to other living matter - as well as the nature of our observation of ourselves and everything outside ourselves. Carroll made a sensible, highly readable, enjoyable story out of (what for most people) is nonsense, no less.Wonderful reading.
  • (3/5)
    It was fun and bizarre and I'm happy I read it.
  • (5/5)
    Its been many years since I last read this and it was better than I remember it being and more nonsensical. I think my memory of the book had been warped by the movies (just a bit crap especially the most recent Johnny Depp one!).
  • (3/5)
    While the story is creative, it is also a lot of nonsense. Albeit is supposed to be a dream, it is rather bizarre. I find it odd that the story has such renown. I mildly recommend this book mainly for the value of being familiar with the story because it is so well known.
  • (5/5)
    In my opinion this is a good picture book. The illustrations really enhance the story and make the reader believe they are in the story.The illustrations really fit the storyline and are filled with great detail! The front cover is a perfect example. On the cover is Alice, the rabbit, mad hater, the cheshire cat, the liquid that makes Alice get big and small, and the caterpillar! Before even reading this story, the reader is curious to see what is going to happen in the story that bring about all these add creatures. Another aspect of the book that i really enjoyed was the language. Throughout this piece of literature, descriptive language is used to help make the reader feel as if they are actually in the story. ""Oh, my ears and whiskers! The Queen will be angry," it said, and hurried off. Alice wanted to see what would happen to it: so she ran and ran, ti; she found herself tumbling down through a rabbit hole after it." When reading this I picture the rabbit with a worried expression on his face and Alice chasing after him. I also see Alice tripping on a tree root and falling into a rabbits hole. Along with the detailed illustrations, this passage makes the reader feel as if they are there watching. The big idea of this story is that dreaming is an amazing and wonderful thing where your imagination can run free.

    Listened to this on CD. Alice's adventures after she falls down a rabbit hole chasing the white rabbit. She runs into several other characters, the cheshire cat, the queen of hearts, the tortise, and has quite an imaginative adventure in wonderland.
  • (5/5)
    Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland is a classic that everyone should read. His play with words, his insane universe with amazing characters, and his symbolism make this a work that can be read over and over. Each time I read it I discover new things, and look at it in a different way. Truly an amazing work by an amazing man.
  • (4/5)
    Silly but interesting.
  • (5/5)
    This is a wonderful retelling of Alice's Adventure in Wonderland. This book includes wonderful illustration, flip-up and pop-outs throughout the story. It combines Graphic art styles with traditional fairytale illustration.
  • (4/5)
    A must for the cultural literacy, but so often mimiced that Alice itself reads as an imitation. The puns are better read in print than listened to. Disney has the Adventures down. The lesser Looking Glass is a bit forced as a sequel.
  • (4/5)
    "Will you, won't you, will you, won't you, will you join the dance?"Through the Looking Glass is much better, but you'd have to be an unfeeling clod to not like Alice in Wonderland. Or perhaps have had unfeeling clods for parents who didn't introduce you to Alice before you were old enough to think the puns were a little overboard.
