Overview

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It tells of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar creatures. The tale has given the story lasting popularity with adults as well as with children.

Although the book's original manuscript no longer exists, this version is probably very close to the original. It has 42 illustrations by John Tenniel, five of which are full-color.

* This e-book is a true representation, from a high-definition scan of a pre-1923 print version of the book. Unlike other e-copies of the book, it was not produced by using Optical Character Recognizion (OCR). OCR-scanning old books is seldom, if ever, error-free. This often results in an e-book with many **, ^^, >> and typographic errors when OCR can't read the word or punctuation correctly.

* "True representation" means that if there are typographic, spelling, or grammatical errors that the editor judges to have minimal impact on the book's comprehension, they have been preserved; otherwise, they were corrected.

* In other words, no changes or as few as possible have been made to either illustrations or text in order to bring you an e-book that is as close to the original as possible.

    The most wonderful children's story of all time.

    Words can hardly describe how I feel about this book. It transports you to another time and place... one is able to suspend all disbelief and experience Wonderland as Alice experiences it- without any doubt or confusion. Alice in Wonderland is magical, charming, and inspiring for children and adults alike.

    Literally Unreadable

    All you can see is the occasional drawings throughout. The rest is basically wingdings.

    wonderful and brilliant all at the same time

    One of the most wonderful books about nothing i have ever read. the story seems just down right crazy but thats what keeps you into the book. fiddling around with the characters and trying to fully understand them, and also trying to find the hidden jokes through out the story is just amazing. I remember telling my friends that they should also read it. they stated that it was a children's book and i told them that through out the book there is adult humor and satire that only adults would find and understand. with that said i would like everyone to read this book. I don't care if you are not a adult or if you think that you are to old for this book cause I can tell you that you will love this book and you will fully understand the whole aspect... But i must worn you that if you read this book and see that in the Disney movie, not the new movie(though if you want to know, the movie is also good and i believe you will like it more if you read this book.) but the original Disney classic, that there are parts missing from the movie. do not be scared. there is another book and sometimes you can get them together, called through the looking glass. this is also good but i do like the first book the adventures in wonderland. but both will make your life feel more fulfilled. but believe me when i say that this book is a must read. it will make your imagination come to life and allow you to see things in a brighter light than normal. well i hope you read this book in the long run after reading my long but wonderful review. i hope you have a great day.

    Alice in Wonderland

    This book is hard to understand at first and yes you might have to read some things over, but once you get use to it this book is wonderful. It's pure nonsense and I loved every minute of it. I'm fourteen and I understand Lewis Caroll perfectly, even read Through The Looking Class. This book is splendid and one of my favorites. WAY better than Twilight.

    I really love this book. I try to read it every year. Whimsical

    I really love this book. I try to read it every year. Whimsical and entertaining. By the way, the one star reviews are obviously for another version of this book, as this version is great. I think B&N puts all the reviews for every version of the book under the same book, for some reason. This version is clean and nice.
