Alice's adventures in Wonderland and Through the looking-glass: in one volume

'Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop.'. So many readers were to take the advice of the King of Hearts that by the end of the nineteenth century the double Alice (1865 and 1872) had acquired a pre-eminent and unassailable position in children's literature. Lewis Carroll's use of logic, by which the ordinary is translated into the extraordinary in an entirely plausible way, is delightfully combined with an exceptional knowledge and understanding of the mind of the child. Satire, allusion, and symbolism weave deeper and mysterious meanings, lending a measure of immortality to Carroll's remarkable fantasy.

Review: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass (Alice)

User Review  - Sarah - Goodreads

Complete nonsense. Reading this today, I was unable to pick up on the political satire it was meant for and therefore I did not enjoy the numerous creations of Lewis Carroll's imagination. I did not enjoy his writing style, or the numerous characters that kept jumbling together in my head. Read full review
