Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is the Classic nonsense tale of an English girl falling down a rabbit hole, there to encounter the strange world of absurdly anthropomorphized animals and playing cards, enigmatic messages and, well, sizing issues :-D

A Classic is usually a novel that has become so ingrained in the collective memory or culture, that one might not be sure whether one has read it or not. The reputation of the book itself precedes the actual experience of reading it and the characters are often the prototypes of later iterations and any number of adaptations. If you've never experienced Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, or read it once before, or even if you've read it multiple times, it bears (another) reading. As familiar as many are with the tale, to actually read or hear the original, un-Disneyfied tale is a pleasure as the nuances of the language surface and fade in ephemeral logic and gently wry humor. The subtlety, whimsy and detail of Wonderland, its inhabitants and their language lends itself to repeated discoveries.

Michael York as the narrator of this audiobook edition brings a nice range of character voices to the story, never sounded absurd himself as he renders the tale of Alice with obvious affection and a master storyteller's grace. His smooth, somewhat effete British voice evokes the romance of an afternoon spent on the Thames and brings the curiouser and curiouser world of Carroll's creation to life.

Who knew this children's classic was so horrible?? Not as bad as Looking Glass, probably because of having seen the movie I was a little desenstized to the complete and utter nonsense of it all.read more

I loved this book. I did read Project Gutenberg EText no. 11—however, they've updated it since then, apparently, as I read it long before the date mentioned of its publication.

This is not as good as I expected. Lots of folks said it's really great... but I'm finding it rushed, and not compelling...

Pages: 192Reading Level: 5.9One of the first children's books, this is a fascinating tale of a young girl who finds herself in a strange land surrounded by peculiar creates and things. However I had difficulty understanding and following along withe the book, so I imagine that students might as well. It would be best to read this at an older age or as a literature focus unit where it can be thoroughly read and comprehended.

My cosmic bible - One of the greatest children's stories ever written . As Alice says "What is the use of a book without pictures or conversations?" Pure literary magic.
