Alice's adventures in wonderland is very good book. I really love it because this book is a fantasy story that is never outdated. this book also gives us many life lessons. this book is great for reading children. later, when I have children, I will read it to my child before they go to bed. Alice in Wonderland has also been adapted to become a big screen movie. great for family. This adventure story is also interesting to read because its main readers, children, share similar traits with Alice. Alice is portrayed as a child with enormous curiosity but still has the innocence of thinking. This is clearly seen in the part where Alice tried to drink a concoction which she herself did not know had any impact on her, then she shrank and enlarged repeatedly because of it. The innocence of thinking in the style of a child is also shown by Alice when she tells the story of her pet cat, Dinah, to a group of animals she meets. He also told innocently Dinah's skills in capturing mice or lizards, making the herd of animals in an uproar and struggling to escape. Funny thing is, Alice herself was surprised by this. The innocence and simplicity of thinking is always shown by Alice throughout her adventures so that childhood readers have an imagination about the figure of Alice who is not much different from themselves.
Carroll's book is episodic and reveals more in the situations that it contrives than in any serious attempt at plot or character analysis. Like a series of nonsense poems or stories created more for their puzzling nature or illogical delightfulness, the events of Alice's adventure are her encounters with incredible but immensely likable characters. Carroll was a master of toying with the eccentricities of language. One feels that Carroll is never more at home than when he is playing, punning, or otherwise messing around with the English tongue. Although the book has been interpreted in numerous ways, from an allegory of semiotics theory to a drug-fueled hallucination, perhaps it is this playfulness that has ensured its success over the last century. The book is brilliant for children, but with enough hilarity and joy for life in it to please adults too, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is a lovely book with which to take a brief respite from our overly rational and sometimes dreary world.
This is a very nice book and one should definitely read it. Obviously, can't tell you the whole story here but its worth reading this book. MUST READ!
It is classic children's book that is also popular with adults. Personally,I found the book strange and uninteresting. However if I was 8-14 I would have loved the fantastic fantasy world Carroll creates. I never expected the events that happened because they were bizarre and unpredictable. I loved the Cheshire cat's wit and intelligence. I also love the hatter because his eccentric personality reminded me of the eccentric people I know. My favorite part was when Alice met the caterpillar, this was because of his ambiguous conversation with Alice. However, I thought the events were sometimes random and didn't always connect. I also disliked the number of characters, this is because sometimes I found it uninteresting and sometimes it meant that I didn't have the development of scenes I wanted. I believe that it is a clever book that I world have preferred when I was younger because now I have a different taste in books. Carroll has depicted a unique world that I hadn't seen before. This why I believe it is a book that I would recommend.
A perfect book to unlock the world of fantasy and pixie dust. A must read for budding readers.
