    One thought on “Alice in Wonderland”

    1. I think that the failure not only of Children's Literature as a whole, but of our very concept of children and the child's mind is that we think it a crime to challenge and confront that mind. Children are first protected from their culture--kept remote and safe--and then they are thrust incongruously into a world that they have been told is unsafe and unsavory; and we expected them not to blanch.It has been my policy that the best literature for children is not a trifling thing, not a simplific [...]

    2. To purge myself from the impact of a controversial book that I read recently - All the Ugly and Wonderful Things - I tried to go back in time and read something for fun. I'm glad to say the experiment was successful as the reading experience was stellar to a T. In fact something happened that didn't happen ever before.What happened was that I enjoyed this book's poetry for once. It was a nonsensical poem but very funny.Alice folded her hands, and began:—“You are old, Father William,” the y [...]

    3. Well, if you really love this book, please do not read on! I really did not enjoy the book, and I'm a little surprised that it's considered a classic. The one thing I did enjoy was that there were many imaginative scenes - all of the different places that she went, like the tea party, the garden, etc. But, the characters were drawn very poorly - they were simply drawn, and most were just annoying (even Alice!). Most of the characters in the great "wonderland" were either cruel, mean or contrary [...]

    4. This book makes perfect sense if you had a misspent youth and went in for psychedelic substances. Just as Lewis Carroll undoubtedly did. Well he certainly liked opium.If you ever tripped out getting bigger and smaller, things that half disappear in the air and inanimate objects suddenly coming to life were part of the fun of the trip. Lewis Carroll wrote Alice as a children's fantasy, but I believe he and his friends must have had a quiet smile at no one guessing the source of his inspiration. O [...]

    5. I can't believe I haven't picked up this book until now. I watched the animated film a million times as a kid, and I've seen the Tim Burton movie, but reading the original story was such a delightful experience! WHIMSY TO THE MAX. I know it's supposed to be basically a nonsensical story (and opium-fueled apparently) but I think there's actually a lot of wisdom to be taken from it. People take life too seriously sometimes. A little nonsense now and then does the body good (where have I heard that [...]

    6. People knocking on the door of their seventh decade don't typically get their first of these things at this point in their lives. But then the Cubs had never won the World Series any other year of my life. I got caught up in the moment. And as is often the case, supply created its own demand. When a smiling Kris Bryant threw the runner out at first to complete the impossible dream, we high-tailed it to Wrigleyville to join the celebration. An enterprising artist took advantage of the mood -- del [...]

    7. "Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."First of all, this was my 200th read book this year, so YAY for me!Second of all, even though I've watched countless adaptations of Alice, it was completely new experience to read this book (well, listen actually). If you haven't already read this book, I suggest listening to Storynory's audiobook. The narrator did an amazing job, and she really brought all those characters to life.

    8. 3.5/5I really enjoyed the beginning of the novel, but soon this whimsicality just grew too much for me. I didn't really understand what was happening at the trial and pretty much gave up trying to understand. Honestly, I think this is one of those rare instances where the movie is better than the book! This is a short book, though, so if you have a few hours to spare and want to read a classic, I'd recommend!

    9. Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland is one we are all familiar with at some point in our lives. Many of us have read an abridged version, heard the basics of the tale from friends or family, or even watched cartoon versions. And when Johnny Depp's version was filmed, everyone flocked to re-read the book. I actually read the story when I was about 13 or 14, as I had gotten a set of various classics for my Confirmation from a close family member.Alice is a remarkable character. She can be a comple [...]

    10. Whenever I have something to write for university, for personal entertainment or as a review I always start at a basic idea. A single question or thought that I can grow my writing from organically. Sometimes it could be a question such as 'what if Mondays became Tuesdays?' My answer, we'd want Tuesdays to become Wednesdays and so on until we had nothing left but Sundays. In this case as I come back and write this review of a book read years ago my question is: Is Alice in Wonderland really a ch [...]

    11. For the Celebrity Death Match Review Tournament, The Annotated Alice (6) versus The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (27) "Let us hear the evidence!" said the King. The White Rabbit opened the letter and began reading aloud:The Knave of Hearts, he killed some tartsAnd kept them in his cellar"Stuff and nonsense!" interrupted Alice loudly. "That's not how it goes at all!""Silence in court!" said the King. "And you, young lady, will go and sleep with Mikael Blomkvist right now!""I shan't!" said Alice st [...]

    12. Alright, I'm back.Isn't it funny to revisit those childhood stories, the ones about magical worlds that made the universe feel so big, only to now see as an adult how much smaller it all is? I mean for such a small tale it's really left a major mark on all pop culture.Anyway, as usual it was the dialogue that stuck with me; it's the same thing that has stuck with me since the first time I read this book because nothing about it is standard. The characters are in a constant game of one-ups man sh [...]

    13. بخشی از شعر "بابا ویلیام" که خودم به شعر ترجمه کردم. (:جَوونه گفت: "بابا ویلیام تو پیریموهات سفیده، میکنی هِنّ و هِنولی بازم روی سرت راه میریدرسته این کار آخه توی این سن؟"بابا ویلیام گفتش که: "بچگی هاماین کار ضرر میزد به مغز سرمولی الآن که مغز نمونده برامچه عیب داره روی سرم راه برم [...]

    14. So that was interesting.At 35, I'm probably a bit of a latecomer to Alice's strange little world. I have never seen the movie or read the book before. But retellings of classic stories like this one have become a thing, and I'd like to have some understanding of the original before I jump into the modern YA dystopian version(s).This story is like a pierced egg yoke; it runs all over the place with no rhyme, reason, or direction. And yet for some reason I found myself completely enthralled. It wa [...]

    15. This book is not for me(=_=)I read this book almost an year ago. I still remember how I felt while reading. Writing style was great. But the PLOT!! That's the whole deal. Alice was excellently written but I couldn't connect with her. I didn't care much about her. I didn't care whether she would get out of Wonderland or not. I don't know why I couldn't connect with any of the elements in this although everything was great.My problems were: The whole plot runs in Alice's dream. The whole Wonderlan [...]

    16. (Alice Lidell)An artist-illustrator, a games-trickster, a mathematician, a logic-scholar, Lewis Carroll (aka Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, a reverend) was once solicited by the Dean’s daughter to tell her a story, while on board the boat on that hot summer day of 1862; up the river Thames. In fact, they were 3 girls. They had a picnic by the river bank. The soliciting girl was named Alice Lidell. And so the story came out of his lips: a girl called Alice, bored, being with her sister by the river [...]

    17. I'm probably the world's biggest Alice fan. I collect anything and everything Alice whether it's classic style or Disney, doesn't matter. I even named my first child Alice. I have read Wonderland and Looking Glass several times throughout my life and I enjoy them every time. I've read them to my kids too and they like them as well. It's just fun and nonsense. There's no need to deeply analyze the greater meaning deep within the story or to try to figure out the author's motives or anything. It's [...]

    18. The Good:It’s very imaginative, and obviously an essential part of modern Western infant culture. The bizarre cast of characters are vividly portrayed, the villain is both funny and horrible, and the heroine is excellent. This book also investigates a few very big concepts (identity, change, authority, etc) in a way that is relatable to little kids.The Bad:It’s childish and ridiculous beyond belief – probably suitable qualities for a children’s book, but frustrating for jaded grownups li [...]

    19. درسته، این کتاب برای بچه ها نوشته شده، احتمالا چون ذهن بچه ها مثل آدم بزرگ ها تو جعبه های احمقانه ای محدود نشده و به راحتی با اینکه آلیس اینقدر کوچیک شه که تو دریاچه ای که از اشک هاش ایجاد شده شنا کنه کنار میاد و تو واندرلند آلیس باهاش همراه میشه برای من اما آزاد کردن ذهنم در دنی [...]

    20. "It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then." ♥I adore this book. its a classic. its a legend.

    21. I never imagined in my dreams to find this book in my college library!But I did! :D :D I checked its publication year. 1997. The pages were yellow and they smelt like chocolate. I looked up once as I was reading it, to see what's going on in my surroundings and it was completely changed. Phew I was already feeling like all these characters are going to come out from it and greet me a Hi.What was I to say? The ending where her elder sister's view is mentioned was what I loved most, although throu [...]

    22. تحذير بسيط : هذه المراجعة ستكون طويلة للغاية. فإن لم يكن لديك وقت فلا تهتم بها.ثلاث مرات و لم أفقد استمتاعي للحظة واحدة!إنها ما يطلق عليه "نشوة عقلية خالصة"! كل جملة في الكتاب لها هدف كل تعبير خلفه العديد من الأفكارعندما أقرأ كتابا من 60 صفحة بالإنجليزية و ضعفها تقريبا tفي نسخته ا [...]

    23. Buddy Read 28/Feb/2015 in the Emma's Tea Party with: Betza, Majo, Lizet, Vicky, Shii & Jessica :D3.5 A masterpiece or a bunch of nonsense? Who cares! So many great lessons this book has. Who cares! And we are all mad, anyway ;)"we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad." Un libro gracioso, muy imaginativo. Pero algo de locura de vez en cuando no afecta a nadie. Dejar volar la imaginación de vez en cuando le hace bien a la gente, así que gente, NO LA CONTENGAN!

    24. I couldn't say how many versions of this I've read or seen since I was a child, but it still delights me as an adult. I had to re-read it for an online science-fiction/fantasy course, and it still makes me laugh. All the puzzling over creatures and crazy dialogue just doesn't get old. Or maybe it is because we are all mad here.

    25. To read this gem as an adult is truly a special treat. It only gets stronger the older you read it. It is one of my favourite stories I've ever read. Revisiting this has been more than enjoyable.

    26. After reading Christina Henry's extremely dark reinterpretation of this childhood classic, I felt I needed to visit it once again, if only to keep my childhood from dying inside me.If you don't know the story, then maybe you are not living on this planet! Alice follows a white rabbit and falls down a rabbit hole and has all sorts of weird adventures and meets all sorts of weird people. Ultimately, it's all revealed as a dream (of course!).These are some of the interesting people Alice meets:The [...]

    27. Long before I saw any movies based on it, this book just creeped me out. I know there are people who passionately love the Alice books. Not me, I'm afraid. When I read them as a kid, I got a pervasive sense of 'something is very wrong and dark in this story.' It has never left me.

    28. What is down the rabbit hole?The book tells the story of a young girl named Alice, out in a hot summer day. Alice is bored, that until a white talking rabbit dashes past her hurriedly checking a pocket watch. Flaming with curiosity, Alice follows the rabbit and tumbles down the rabbit hole, and that’s when all the fun begins. And so, Alice begins exploring through the marvelous world of wonderland, having her own adventures.Here’s the thing though, things in wonderland are very absurd and un [...]
