    1. This volume will stay with me for my entire life. It was the first "grown-up" book I ever received -- as a gift from a stranger whose name escapes me. Whoever it was, they changed my life. Stepping into Carroll's world opened my mind to the possibilities of the human imagination, the concept of math as art, and interested me in the man behind the genius.

    2. This has turned into one of my, "at home" books; I dare you to take it into public. It's like bound spontaneous laughter."Well, now that we have seen each other," said the Unicorn, "if you'll believe in me, I'll believe in you. Is that a bargain?"

    3. What is the use of a book without pictures or conversations? I agree--especially conversations. And the conversations in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass are some of the most famously fabulous confabulations. (Don't mind me, I just like how that word sounds). These pictures, by illustrator John Tenniel, were very important to Lewis Carroll and his story.It's been many years since I've read these stories, and I am surprised to find them both profound and hilarious. ( [...]

    4. I have very mixed reviews of this one book. Complete collections of Lewis Carroll, and I now understand why Alice in Wonderland, followed by Through the Looking Glass, are his best known works. I suppose I shouldn't say I "completed" this book, because after Sylvie and Bruno I just couldn't take it. Baby talk. I cannot STAND baby talk in real life, and reading it (even coming from a small child), is more than I can take. For example, here's the sort of excerpt that makes me fly on in an angry ra [...]

    5. 1) Alice's Adventures in Wonderland2) Through the Looking Glass3) Sylvie and Bruno4) Sylvie and Bruno Concluded5) A Tangled Tale6) The Hunting of the Snark7) Phantasmagoria and Other Poems8) Three Sunsets and Other Poems

    6. I consider the "Alice" books and Carroll's nonsense poems some of the greatest works in the English language. Viewing the full scope of his work in this hefty tome, it's difficult to say everything else reaches the same level, which is why I dock a star. The "Sylvie & Bruno" novels are interesting, more adult versions of his surreal fantasy with overt nods to fairy lore, but they oddly suffer from moralism and sentimentality. His early poetry is strikingly very Victorian and not always bad, [...]

    7. For me, who hasn't read these stories all the way through, I find my imagination stimulated with each short sitting.

    8. I bought this book just for Alice in Wonderland. It's a must read, and Alice is the backbone of so many songs and other stories.The lines are hilariousLewis Carroll is a genious.

    9. Buku ini adalah karya Lewis Carrell yang berjudul Alice Through The Looking Glass. buku ini adalah lanjutan dari Alice In Wonderland. Buku ini berisi tentang petualangan Alice yang berada di Negeri Ajaib.Melanjutkan petualangannya di negeri ajaib, Alice masuk ke dunia di balik cermin. Hingga ia terjebak di suatu ruangan yang memiliki cermin besar dan terdapat kupu-kupu biru yang bisa menembus cermin itu. Lalu Alice pun menembus cermin tersebut dan dia kembali ke wonderlandSesampai dia di wonderl [...]

    10. I'm sorry I just don't get it! None of it makes any sense! I can only relate it to those absolutely horrible dreams you get when you cant wake yourself up, not a pleasant feeling! I didn't understand the Disney animation, live action or the book. I don't get the hype and I don't think it deserves it.

    11. For all my love of the Alice duology I simply do not get on well with much of the rest of Carroll's writing. The Hunting of the Snark was good, but most of his poetry and other stories were just so dragging I couldn't stay focused at all. Alas, it seems Alice's Adventures really are my favorite of his.

    12. His poetry is much stronger than his trippy narratives, but stylistically there isn't much difference. Jabberwocky is an incredible poem and is a masterpiece in itself.

    13. This beautiful leather bound, gilded edition contains both of Alice's adventures.I read this when preparing to go study abroad with my most beloved English tutor.This will always mean the world to me. RIP Lawrence.

    14. ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLANDI read some of the background and history to this book before reading. This was good as it answered some of the questions I would have had. I also read some of the reviews here on after reading the book. It could be that some people miss out on the whole idea of the story. It was a tale told to a few girls while out in a boat trip sailing up a river told by Lewis Carroll to keep them amused. Lewis Carroll used characters they knew in the story such as the White R [...]

    15. This review will be sort of split up by section, since there's a wide variety of material in this book.The book starts out with Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Of course, this story is simply delightful. I'd read it before, and it's what made me figure I'd enjoy Carroll's complete works. It has just the right amount of nonsense, and the characters are simply delightful. And this is one of those books that was adapted to film so well that having seen the movie actually increases my enjoyment of [...]

    16. There's probably a reason you're not really familiar with the other works of Lewis Carroll beyond Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. Certainly those two were the easiest reads in this book. My biggest problem with the two of them, is that Alice is a truly obnoxious child. Her actions and reactions to her adventures vary between totally bland to utterly rude. This was my first time reading the Alice stories, and I did enjoy finding the little bits I know from movies and plays, and [...]

    17. I grew up watching Disney's animated "Alice in Wonderland." I have always loved it but never read the books it was taken from. So I decided it was about time. I was actually a little disappointed. The first book "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" started out quite boring with very little in-depth description. The fantasy was there but it was not really built up. About half-way through it started to get a little better. The second book, "Through the Looking-Glass," was much better than the first, [...]

    18. Lewis Carol is a significant figure in literature, and, given the suggestion to read through all the works of a writer, I decided to read through to his completed works. I enjoyed the first two of his famed and notable stories. Alice in Wonderland is phenomenal and many of his words are famous in the psychological literature as well. The Queen and her impeccable powers of foresight are worth mentioning. “It's a poor sort of memory that only works backwards,” the Queen remarked.“What sort o [...]

    19. Reading "Alice in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking-Glass" is better than any movie interpretation I have ever seen to date. American McGee's "Alice" video-game comes close, but that has a different take on the whole thing of course.However entertaining the "Alice" books were, it was the "Sylvie & Bruno" stories that stole my heart. Those were written for both children as well as adults, and it shows - they capture the touching profundity that every other conversation with a child seems t [...]

    20. The Compete Lewis Carroll is one of a very short list of books I've begun and couldn't get myself to finish. I derived no enjoyment from the book at a certain point and that is where I stopped (Sylvie and Bruno chapter 7). I realized for the last few chapters I had been wondering to myself "how much longer until this is book is done?!". When reading feels like an obligation and chore the book will always be shelved.The Alice stories weren't terrible and themselves would have likely received a 2 [...]

    21. While not the "complete Complete," this edition is still pretty awesome if you're a fan of Carroll's writings. It includes the major lesser-known works: Sylvie and Bruno, Sylvie and Bruno Concluded, A Tangled Tale, Phantasmagoria, and The Hunting of the Snark. It also has a lot of his poetry and other small publications, fiction and non-fiction. Of the short fiction, I was particularly glad to see "Wilhelm von Schmitz" and "A Photographer's Day Out," which are hard to find. So far, the only lack [...]

    22. I bought this book solely for Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass and stopped reading after Through the Looking Glass although I may pick it up later on.Reading this book makes me wonder how it would be interpreted by someone reading it 100 years ago and if it would have been as strange then as it is today. Carroll is a very imaginative writer and has so many characters that come from all over it really is fun to read is stories. Reading Carroll’s writing made me think a little o [...]

    23. Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) is famed for his magical stories, Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, here illustrated throughout the inner pages by Sir John Tenniel's much loved drawings. However, inspired by the insatiable Victorian appetite for party games, tricks and conundrums, this eccentric and polymathical Englishman also wrote many other works of a humorous, witty, whimsical and nonsensical nature such as the mock-heroic nonsense verse The Hunting of the Snark, a [...]

    24. Capisco che per tollerare tutto questo nonsense bisogni essere abbastanza "slegati", come in effetti mi sento io. Ma, anche in relativamente poche pagine, Carrol riesce a mettere un'intera esplosione di fuochi d'artificio verbali che, ogni volta che lo si apre, si scopre qualche nuova frase o spunto che ti era sfuggito magari solo un mese prima. Cosa mi ha colpito di più? Adesso, l'irriverenza contro il potere, il far vedere quanto siano piccole le prepotenze di chi ci sta teoricamente sopra e [...]

    25. This book was really good. It was good to read the actual Alice books. I liked Through the Looking Glass better because of it's chess theme. I was familiar with The Hunting of the Snark (through the musical) so that was an interesting read as well. Then came some logic and mathematical puzzles most of which I didn't work out, but were still kind of fun. The book also contained some blah blah blah boring poems.My favorite part of the book was reading Sylvie and Bruno, a fabulous tale of fairies a [...]

    26. Meh. Lewis Carroll has never really been my idea of a good time, and I wondered if reading the complete works would change my mind. It hasn't. I can acknowledge the quality of his prose, the cleverness of some of his verse, but on the whole the subject matter treated and the way in which it is treated don't interest me much. Incidentally, lest I be thought a slave to fashion, I would like to point out that when I undertook to read the complete works of Lewis Carroll I was unaware of the big-budg [...]

    27. (at page 114)- Alice's Adventures in WonderlandI've just finished reading "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" which is the book being discussed at The Richmond Bookclub this month (April 2010). All I knew of this story was the Disney movie version and was excited to read the original tale. There's no doubt that Lewis Carroll is a writer of wit and imagination--and I respect Alice's place within the realm of "The Classics"--but I found myself at times weary of its absurd and repetitive nature. And [...]

    28. I have to admit that I only read Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass -- I tried to read the rest but sadly they didn't hold my interest as much as the two I picked the book up for in the first place. I wanted to reread them for purposes involving work, so I was reading them with a particular slant and an eye towards mentions of fragrances, but I kept getting sidetracked with the logic puzzles and the fun poetry and the general amazing imagery that grabbed me as a child and has neve [...]
