Reviews of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865)

Review by StefanY (2007-08-24)

The joy of this book definitely holds through for me as an adult. I reread this with some trepidation as I remembered reading and enjoying it several times as a child, but was pleasantly surprised to find it just as magical as I did then.

I won't bore anyone with the details of the story as I'm sure that most who are reading this review are familiar with it. Suffice it to say that Alice's journey into Wonderland is still rather wonderful.

Alice still comes off as a bratty know-it-all, but I thought that when I was younger, so it did not change my feelings towards the book. The humor is well thought out, reading through it as an adult, I caught many more of the clever puns than I did before, so that made for some refreshing new discoveries.

I would reccommend this book to anyone who hasn't read it or at least hasn't read it since their childhood. It is a quick, enjoyable read that takes ones mind into a magical land of wonder.

This is the best introductory book on <i>any</i> subject.

The book is charming, often clever, but not as funny as it should be. Non-children will be very bored in places, and children will not want to read for long stints at a time. Nonetheless, there's a reason it's a classic.
