Product description

Amazon Review

Source of legend and lyric, reference and conjecture, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is, for most children, pure pleasure in prose. While adults try to decipher Lewis Carroll's putative use of complex mathematical codes in the text, or debate his alleged use of opium, young readers simply dive with Alice through the rabbit hole, pursuing "The dream-child moving through a land / Of wonders wild and new". There they encounter the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts, the Mock Turtle and the Mad Hatter, together with a multitude of other characters--extinct, fantastical and commonplace creatures. Alice journeys through this Wonderland, trying to fathom the meaning of her strange experiences. But they turn out to be "curiouser and curiouser", seemingly without moral or sense.

For more than 130 years, children have revelled in the delightfully non-moralistic, non-educational virtues of this classic. In fact, at every turn Alice's new companions scoff at her traditional education. The Mock Turtle, for example, remarks that he took the "regular course" in school: Reeling, Writhing and branches of Arithmetic--Ambition, Distraction, Uglification and Derision. Carroll believed John Tenniel's illustrations were as important as his text. Naturally, Carroll's instincts were good; the masterful drawings, reproduced here, are inextricably tied to the well-loved story. (All ages)

Review

"Alice's Adventures in Wonderland appeals to all new generations, and Richard Kelly's edition is a fresh and fitting jamboree for our time. For the first time, it gives us in a single book both Lewis Carroll's early version of Alice Under Ground and the full version of the story. It encapsulates the major theories of what the book means, and it provides photographs that Carroll took and excerpts from his diaries and letters; it also offers examples of early reviews, imitations, parodies, and recollections of the author. Altogether it is a splendid cornucopia that is bound to become the ultimate Alice for us and for generations to come." - Morton N. Cohen, Professor Emeritus, City University of New York, author of Lewis Carroll: A Biography, and editor of The Selected Letters of Lewis Carroll

I have tried so many things to reduce my accent, but I am not good singing or memorising lyrics, I am terrible imitating accents, I feel embarrassed if I try to mimic the way and style of the person speaking to me, and obviously, no one wants to hear me whispering what the person on the tv just said... so, I am trying a new approach, read aloud the book.

IPA will be very difficult for those that never needed it as part of a learning foreign language. However, if you know a bit the alphabet, I think you will be able to get used to it slowly. The beginning is tough; be ready to read at 5 a year-old speed, trying several times the same word and wondering what you really read, but after a while you get speedier and you can recognise words automatically. I am still in chapter two but I found that by repeating correctly over and over again the same words, they have become easier to say and people ask me fewer times to repeat what I said. Sometimes, I see their phonetic writing when I am speaking...Of course, this positive impression could also be just psychological, i.e. me believing I am (finally!) improving but, even in this case, it has increased my self-esteem and it has helped me to speak more confidently.

About the book: The foreword is written in English and IPA, so it can be used as a guidance. The illustrations are really beautiful. They are by John Tenniel from 1865 (see pic).

Disappointing to discover that The Hunting of the Snark not only lacked its illustrations (which add considerably to the poem) but was incomplete, lacking the two final 'fits' - absolutely crucial!

Delighted to purchase this. This is the first time I have seen all four areas of LC in one book. "Alice's Adventures Underground" and "Wonderland are very similar. but I did enjoy reading "The Hunting of the Snark" and "Through the Looking Glass". It helps a lot when reading the Looking Glass if one understands the rules of Chess, and also plays the game, both of which I do! If one doesn't understand chess at all, some of the literature in "The Looking Glass" is likely to be confusing. I would strongly recommend studying the rules of Chess before reading.

That aside, it is a classic piece of literature. I have heard it said that "Wonderland" is one of LC's visions when he had a Grand Mal (apparently he was epileptic) but having got this condition myself (extremely well-controlled I might add). I am not sure if this is true. Nevertheless, this is a welcome addition to my ever growing collection! Well worth reading!

This review is for the Millenium Publications edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, which is a shameless rip-off. It doesn't have the illustrations and it bears an uncanny resemblance to the free version of the text that anyone can download from the Gutenberg Project. The only difference is that if I had downloaded it and printed it out myself I wouldn't have done such a shoddy job of it.

This is a terrible way to treat a classic.

The reviews of this I read seem to refer to another edition completely. Perhaps the kindle version. Do not buy this as in the printed form at least it is really not a proper book and 100% disappointing. Thin and flimsy, it has no illustrations and the tile of the book is even mis-spelled on the cover - "Alice adventures" instead of Alice's Adventures. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is actually a great book, just don't buy this edition of it.

I read this because i didn't as a child and friends often talk about it with great admiration saying it's not just a book for children but also for adults. I love art parties, surrealism and weird quirky stuff so I thought I would most certainly appreciate Alice, but i just found it kind of fun but not exactly amazing. Like, it basically just exploits a binary trope of small/large, known/unknown for comic effect and that's it.
I remembered that my parents did try to read it to me as a child but that I wouldn't let them get through the story, I found it so boring I left the room every time they read it to me and they soon gave up. People don't change, I guess. But I'm definitely not any more drawn to any mad hatter parties than i was before...

This is a very strange edition which is illustrated with pictures that would seem to be more appropriate to Robinson Crusoe. Has someone at the publishers (Amazon) slipped up?

This is a very disappointing experience as I have received a book that is completely different from what I bought and what was on the picture. As you can see from my photo, this book only contains Through the Looking Glass, while I was expecting to get a book that also contains Alice in Wonderland. I am not going to spend more of my precious time for the hassle of returning it, so will have to get another book now.
