    It's hard to chose a rating when you read a collection of stories in one book. 5 Stars for Alice in Wonderland. 3 Stars Through the Looking Glass: the chapters seemed so disjointed and unrelated. Definitely not as interesting as Alice in Wonderland, either. I think I only really enjoyed the chapter with the Queens. 2 Stars Alice's Adventures Underground: it's not really a story, more like an outline for Alice in a Wonderland. 2 Stars Hunting of the Snark. 3 Stars for the average.

I have perversely decided on no spoilers in this review, despite that almost everybody has seen a movie version of these books! The plots are a little dull to describe for adults anyway except for those of us who immediately become prostrate with nostalgia. I think from the point of view of children, though, the novels are fantastically fun and seemingly lacking in anything moral to learn. Indeed, the author makes a point to prove education is nonsensical several times! Quite a relief, I think, for today's highly helicoptered and hoovered kids. I thought this Kindle ebook a terrific edition as many of the original drawings - both by the legendary John Tenniel, Henry Holiday and also those by Lewis Carroll himself (real name Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) have been wonderfully reproduced. It also includes a chapter, 'The Wasp in a Wig', which has been cut from the regularly published books. 'The Nursery "Alice" is a regurgitated version of 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' written by Carroll for toddlers, and in my opinion, it totally sucks. The gorgeous and hilarious poem about a Snark hunt is a delight! I had no idea for most of my life Great Literature college students and adults with Ph.D.'s were and are busy trying to read between the lines for 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland', seeing adult literary jokes, political agendas and insults against real-life people hidden in the text. There have been hundreds of books written analyzing Carroll's novels and life. My generation (baby boomers) re-interpreted the novel 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' in drug metaphors as young adults, even though all it is actually is an entertaining fantasy written first in 1862 for the entertainment of children. Many movies have been made of it although most do not exactly follow the plot of the book. I remember seeing a black and white 1933 movie version of 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' starring Charlotte Henry ( http://www.tcm.com/mediaroom/video/62... ) on Saturday TV which I absolutely adored. In my memory, this particular movie follows the books almost exactly. 'Alice's Adventures Under Ground' is the first version written privately for Alice alone to see when she was seven years old, illustrated by Lewis Carroll himself. Later, an edited and more professionally illustrated version was published, 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland', which is the one I first read myself as a pubescent teen (I saw the 1933 movie first on TV when I was in elementary school before reading the book). Below is a link to a baby boomer favorite, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers video song about Alice. https://youtu.be/h0JvF9vpqx8 This link is to the supposedly first ever Alice movie: https://youtu.be/zeIXfdogJbA Here is a link to a completed list of every 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' movie ever made. https://www.pastemagazine.com/article...

    I thought that I wouldn't like this book for the same reason I didn't really like Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland movie - it tried to make up for actual humour with plain weirdness. However, I really enjoyed the original Alice books, because of the layered conversations Alice has with the creatures, and all the wordplay that goes on within these conversations. If there's one thing I didn't like, it was how anticlimactic the endings were.

    Complete Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, Leah Moore, John Reppion, & Erica Awano 2.5 stars I do enjoy the tale of Alice in Wonderland. The Disney movie was one of my favorite growing up. It was so fantastic and far out there with all the talk of unbirthdays, singing flowers, oyster eating, and maniacal laughter. I've always been heavily influenced by the tale.

I've always been heavily influenced by the tale. I have only read Alice in Wonderland so Through the Looking Glass is a new tale for me, one I think that I'd prefer to have read physically without illustrations. I liked the adaptation and the ideas behind a good bit of art work, but I also didn't like the art work or the coloring. It looked faded out and none if it was really captivating. I didn't find that this graphic novel was a completely astonishing adaptation. The story of Alice is so whimsical and the artwork in this edition felt washed out and unimaginative in comparison. Art Scale: 2 I do like both Alice stories and it was really interesting reading Through the Looking Glass for the first time. I'm just not in love with the stories. I think they are fun and cute, but they aren't stories that I find particularly lasting. To be honest, if it wasn't for the Disney films nothing about Alice would be ingrained in my mind except the beginning with the rabbit and falling down a hole. Plotastic Scale: 3 Cover Thoughts: It's a cute cover, but again nothing impressionable about the art. Thank you, Netgalley and Dynamite Entertainment for providing me with a copy of this graphic novel in exchange for an honest review.

    That was one of the strangest books I have ever read! Ratings: Alice In Wonderland - 3.5/5, Decided to listen to this one on audio as I thought it would make more sense as I was struggling to follow the story properly when reading. I was still a bit confused though, but it was still enjoyable reading the original story. Through The Looking Glass - 4/5, I seemed to be able to follow this one a lot easier so just read this instead of listening to the audio.

    To be fair, I'm pretty much always reading this book. I have a slight Lewis Carroll obsession. I actually tracked down his original Alice drawings the other day, pretty awesome! Still love the Tenniel drawings though. I will read bits of this book when I'm stressed or sad, or trying to remember a quote. Other parts I've memorized and torture my students with at random. This book always has something new for me. For as long as I live, Wonderland will always be my favorite playground. To be fair, I'm pretty much always reading this book.

    By giving it 2 stars for "it was ok", I'm not saying that this book was bad or anything, I'm just saying that as an individual I did not enjoy reading any of the stories. Yes, when you read all the articles written on this book (these stories) you'll see how wonderful and beyond imagination it was (or still is). But as a story? Not so much. I was actually bored all through the book. Alice wasn't a likable character, and her adventures were more annoying. That's just me though.

    2016 Reading Challenge: #1 A book at least 100 years older than you. This was a beautiful edition but sorry, I just don't get the idea of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, maybe I'm stupid or I don't know, but I don't like this silly stories. I'm sure Lewis Carroll fell in love with a kid (pedophilia). Sorry bad joke, but really guys think about it. 2016 Reading Challenge: #1 A book at least 100 years older than you.

It would be presumptuous of me to critique the stories themselves, so instead I'll center on the presentation of this Kindle edition. In a word: Complete. Not only does the collection contain "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Though the Looking-Glass...," but it also contains: a deleted chapter; the original text of the story written for the real Alice, before it was revised for publication; Carroll's "Nursery Alice," which he revised for much younger children; and "The Hunting of the Snark," a long poem with some relationship to the Wonderland universe. There's also a glossary of terms, a bibliography of reference material, and the editor's own reflections on each of the edition's offerings and how they relate to Carroll's life and times. So, yes, this is as complete as you can get without getting all scholarly and stuffy. The editor (or compiler?) Mr. Kelly does a great job of translating as much as possible into the Kindle format, including original black and white artwork from the books. While the kindle edition can't support the color pictures from the Nursary version, Mr. Kelly provides links to find these. There are a couple of places where the original presentation cannot be duplicated--such as the circling text of the dormouse's tail--while the ommission of the format is apologetically noted, it would have been nice to get a scan of the original book page as an addition to the text. Other than that, it's a great compilation, including Mr. Kelly's incites into each chapter to give the strange stories some context. It's clear this was a labor of love. Five Stars is based on the format, and an understanding of its limitations. The only thing better would be to have a physical copy of this (complete with missing color illustrations and special text formatting).

    Now I get media references, woo! I loved the story. It was quirky and there was a lot of word play. I wonder if Douglass Adams got his inspiration from Alice? I understand now that the Queen of Hearts is different from the Red Queen, which I was lead to believe that they were the same queen. Alice is a curious little girl (Not a young adult or teenager as sometimes portrayed in media) that easily gets frustrated. This is because many she meets berate and scold her for what she says or thinks. In Now I get media references, woo! I loved the story. It was quirky and there was a lot of word play.

I liked the illustrations and after the book there was some nice audio addition surprises that were included! (I will be very much so listening to them on long car rides, which insists that the ride itself is long, not the car.) I think I am clever, but not as clever as Carroll himself. If you would like to remember what your childlike imagination once was, love the idea of Wonderland, and/or want to get social references, read this book. This was a great edition, the only note I would like to point out is that Alice's Adventures Under Ground in not a separate story, it is Alice's Adventures in Wonderland without the pictures, and the chapters are combined. A great collection.

What I didn’t think of while reading it is that “For Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, there is no direction to the story and one could almost place the chapters in any sequence and the story would still make sense” in contrast to through the looking glass where it’s written with the specific direction for Alice to become the queen. I couldn’t quite follow the story with the shark, and the final book (Alice underground) is what would later be published as Alice in Wonderland. Definitely recommended for some imagination boost :)

    Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is one of my all time favorite books! I hate to say Through the Looking Glass just isn't a favorite of mine and that is why I had to take one star away. Alice's Adventures Underground seems to be just a shortened version of the first book so I am glad he chose to add more! The Hunting of the Snark was actually pretty entertaining after I read it a few times and kinda understood what was going on! Love the world of Wonderland!

    I know a lot of people just love Alice in Wonderland and I'm certain I'm going to stand out as the oddball as far as that goes but I have to say that I just couldn't finish it. There is no existing sense of a plot at all. Just random and nonsensical dream after dream. I'll give it two stars just for the sake of creative imagination though.

    I had read all 4 many hears ago, but I decided that they might read differently in old age. They do. But they are still wonderful in the way they had made me full of wonder way back when. If you never read the books but saw movies, you should give them a try. I would start with Wonderland and Looking Glass.

    Well, the story is very unconventional.. reader shall release all his imagination.. sometimes, after i read a book, i also watch a movie.. this time i did it the other way around, and I’m happy for it.. it would be hard to follow the plot otherwise.. its full of nonsense meaningless discussions and ridiculousness, but miraculously that’s what makes the book so famous.. what i didn’t like was the 3rd book of poems and the 4th book that more or less repeated the first book

    I think it suited the movie really well. I loved the tidbits and direct way with words. It was fantastical and wonderful. I liked the second book better than the first though personally and her time at the tea party is my favorite. I think it was a good read nonetheless. But if you do not want to read the book, the movie, obviously is a very close representation of the 1st book.

    I never read Alice in Wonderland as a child and that's probably for the best as, at the very least, I would have been confused but, more likely, traumatized. I know that over the years there have been many interpretations and theories about this story but, holy hell, this just comes off as one giant LSD trip by the author.

    A short version of the lewis Carroll story. A freebie from ghostwriter. I do prefer the original , but this is suitable for children. It keeps all the important characters and events while eliminating ideas that sidetrack.

    Alice in Wonderland in all its glory and complete nonsense. Faithful to the original work this volume is a really enjoyable read. Illustrated with a wonderful art it's also filled with works of poetry featured in the written only version. Recommendable. Alice in Wonderland in all its glory and complete nonsense.
