Alice in Wonderland Collection – All Four Books: Alice in Wonderland, Alice Through the Looking Glass, Hunting of the Snark and Alice Underground (Illustrated) Kindle Edition
― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland.
Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland books have delighted readers across the globe for over a hundred years. Alice in Wonderland Collection – All Four Books presents the two most famous Alice books – Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass – as well as the Alice-related fantasy verse The Hunting of the Snark and, for Alice aficionados, a digitized copy of Alice’s Adventures Underground, the shorter, original Alice in Wonderland manuscript which Carroll wrote for his friends and family before they encouraged him to expand the book and send it to a publisher.
Also included in this collection - two image galleries showcasing vintage Alice illustrations, first edition covers and author portraits; links to free audio recordings of Alice in Wonderland; and Alice at the Movies, a look at the numerous movie versions over the years.
“Begin at the beginning," the King said, very gravely, "and go on till you come to the end: then stop.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland.

"And what is the use of a book," thought Alice, "without pictures or conversations?"
Such wording as "all 4 books" and the misleading, digital copy of the cover they used to portray the product, the cover photo is of 4 books from an actual collection, which is again, the 4 books i expected to receive. Instead you will receive a childish blue-teal colored book, with no illustrations, and 4 badly condensed copies of the books you hoped for.
I decided a while back that I should read more of the classics—kid’s or otherwise. I’ve always heard that "Alice in Wonderland" is a strange book; that the author was high on drugs when he wrote it. Once I started reading it, I agreed that it is rather weird—in a whimsical sort of way. I don’t think the author was high, I think he was just imaginative. I liken reading "Alice in Wonderland” akin to listening to someone tell about the dream they had last night. Some of it is hysterically funny, and other parts are just plain weird. Overall though, I found the book quite delightful.
That being said, this particular edition is actually four books in one: Alice in Wonderland, Alice Through the Looking Glass, Hunting of the Snark, and Alice Underground.
Alice Through the Looking Glass was much like Alice in Wonderland although Alice falls through the looking glass in her family room to get to the other side where everything is opposite. It still reads like a dream.
Hunting the Snark is a poem and I can’t even really tell you what it was about. Basically, just a bunch of nonsense – at least to me.
Alice Underground was just a shorter version of Alice in Wonderland. So, if you want to get an idea of what Alice in Wonderland is like, just read the first two books in this set of four. I probably would have given this book four stars had I stopped after the second book.
This was an E book purchase, and one of the best I have made. I was pleasantly surprised with how well this was formatted. I am a huge fan of the Alice in Wonderland collection, and this set is complete with all four books. I was thrilled that Alice Underground (the original manuscript) was included. The classic illustrations only add more charm to what has been an endearing classic for years. I would absolutely love to have this set in hardback.

Tirando estes detalhes, a estória já é bastante conhecida. Lewis Carroll é um autor de uma imaginação incomparável. Ainda acho estranho uma estória como essa ser voltada para crianças. É tudo tão maluco e complexo, mas ao mesmo tempo extremamente divertido e perspicaz.
Foi a primeira vez que pude ler o original em inglês, e gostei muito. É um livro fantástico, para se ler e reler várias vezes e viajar junto com o autor e a pequena Alice.
Leitura mais que recomendada. Só não dei 5 estrelas pelos 2 últimos "livros" não adicionarem nada a estória de Alice.
