Overview

First published in 1865, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland began as a story told to Alice Liddell and her two sisters on a boating trip in July 1862. The novel follows Alice down a rabbit-hole and into a world of strange and wonderful characters who constantly turn everything upside down with their mind-boggling logic, word play, and fantastic parodies.

Like the first, this second edition includes Carroll’s earlier story Alice’s Adventures Under Ground, which allows readers to trace the revisions and to compare Carroll’s own illustrations in the original with the famous John Tenniel illustrations for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. This edition also includes new appendix material: George MacDonald writing on the fantastic, the eighteenth-century children’s story Goody Two-Shoes, a section on film and television adaptations of Alice, and new illustrations.

The misspelled words in this version can be distracting. Also, the line breaks are awkward. Some sentences stop halfway across the page and begin again two lines down. (distracting isn't it?)It takes a lot away from an otherwise great book. Ex: Pm instead of I'm Ahce instead of Alice

Very interesting book but all the typos make it very hard to read. Takes a lot of personal creativity to work around.

I know it's a free book, and that is probably why the format is so horrible. But after 2 or 3 chapters, the screen only showed sporadic words about the screen and you couldn't read it.

This book is great. It is a classic! It somehow just draws you into the story. There is a few spelling mistakes but it is such a great book it makes up for that. It is one of or possibly my favorite book. It is also such a steal for inly one dollar. Great book overall.

If you have seen the Alice in Wonderland movie, starring Jonny Depp as the Mad Hatter, circa 2010, do not expect this book to be anything like the movie. Yes, there are some similarities, but the movie is actually a blend of the 1st & 2nd Alice books- this one, and the second novel, which is called Through the Looking Glass. However, even though this novel was not what i was expecting after watchimg the movie, I still enjoyed it anf highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good classic novel to read. <3 the_book_worm
