Editorial Reviews

Review

“Only Lewis Carroll has shown us the world upside down as a child sees it, and has made us laugh as children laugh.” —Virginia Woolf

From the Publisher

In 1862 Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, a shy Oxford mathematician with a stammer, created a story about a little girl tumbling down a rabbit hole. Thus began the immortal adventures of Alice, perhaps the most popular heroine in English literature. Countless scholars have tried to define the charm of the Alice books--with those wonderfully eccentric characters the Queen of Hearts, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Cheshire Cat, Mock Turtle, the Mad Hatter et al.--by proclaiming that they really comprise a satire on language, a political allegory, a parody of Victorian children's literature, even a reflection of contemporary ecclesiastical history. Perhaps, as Dodgson might have said, Alice is no more than a dream, a fairy tale about a trials and tribulations of growing up--or down, or all turned round--as seen through the expert eyes of a child.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Magnificent Alice
By Sandy Shaller on November 9, 2020
I started my love affair with Alice and Lewis Carroll's brilliant use of language when I was seven years old and my dad gave me my first copy of the books (I still have that copy, dad.). Through the years, I've aquired many different editions of Alice even copies illustrated by wonderful artists other than the great Tenniel. This particular edition of ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND & THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS is a feast for the eyes as well as the mind and heart. In a beautiful slip-cover with happy Mad Tea Party art decorating it, and with the sumptuous large edition with many color illustrations (the best I've seen and I have at least 4 copies that have colorized Tenniel) the stories feel brand new. I started reading immediately and it took me back to that very first time I discovered my way into Carroll's masterpiece. This is a boon to anyone who loves Alice or collects fine books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book
By PCas on July 6, 2019
I love the color and the cover material. It’s not a hard cover but it’s also not paper, more like a smooth plastic (hard to describe). The detail on the outside is nice and I love the attached gold bookmark. All of the print in mine is fine and not smudged.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Incredible!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 21, 2018
As a child, I would often fall asleep listening to various adaptations of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. I came to love the story and its characters, but have never, since entering adulthood, considered this book from a literary perspective. Perhaps, in my mind, it will always be a children’s book; after all, its protagonist is a child, and it considers such imaginative creatures and scenarios that it would seem out of place alongside the Victorian realism of its time. I was therefore surprised when I noticed this book, along with Carroll’s Through the Looking-Glass, on my reading list for this university term, but having now appreciated Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland as an adult, I realise my mistake: whilst it was once written for children, it has long since been considered an adult read, dealing with issues and themes that are considered in many other Victorian novels, such as Brontë’s Villette, and Dickens’ Great Expectations.

I’m going to be honest: I read this book in a day, and look forward to getting stuck into Through the Looking-Glass as soon as I can, because, when it really comes down to it, Lewis Carroll knows how to tell a good story. There’s nothing quite like these books when it comes to imagination, not even Terry Pratchett’s or J. R. R. Tolkien’s works. They’re fantastical, unbelievable, and somehow mesmerising, if only because they are just so different to what we are used to reading. So, whether you’re already familiar with Alice’s adventures or not, I thoroughly recommend you give this book a read, and see whether you think it is only meant for children. It’s very short, and each chapter is only a couple of pages long, which makes it easily accessible and a good read for when you only have a few short breaks in a day. Read it to analyse it, or read it for the sake of a good story; either way, read it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely prints, just a few faulty pages
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on March 9, 2021
I havent read the book yet, but I'll comment and say the print is perfect, there are lovely illustrations (not so many but still some), but i did get a faulty few pages where it may not have been trimmed properly. I dont mind too much as the rest of the book is just fine, so I'll trim the 2 pages myself. Im excited to give the book a read, but when it comes to Alice In Wonderland, a review can be very opinionated so if you do buy the book i hope you love it! :)
