Meet the Author

Lewis Carroll
Lewis Carroll
It's possible that if Lewis Carroll had never met Alice Liddell, he might have enjoyed a more peaceful lifetime and an obscure legacy. But his whimsical inventiveness touched everything he did, and a story he made up one afternoon for a little girl became one of literature's great classics, Alice in Wonderland.

Biography

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, known by his pen name, Lewis Carroll, was a man of diverse interests -- in mathematics, logic, photgraphy, art, theater, religion, medicine, and science. He was happiest in the company of children for whom he created puzzles, clever games, and charming letters.

As all Carroll admirers know, his book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865), became an immediate success and has since been translated into more than eighty languages. The equally popular sequel Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, was published in 1872.

The Alice books are but one example of his wide ranging authorship. The Hunting of the Snark, a classic nonsense epic (1876) and Euclid and His Modern Rivals, a rare example of humorous work concerning mathematics, still entice and intrigue today's students. Sylvie and Bruno, published toward the end of his life contains startling ideas including an 1889 description of weightlessness.

The humor, sparkling wit and genius of this Victorian Englishman have lasted for more than a century. His books are among the most quoted works in the English language, and his influence (with that of his illustrator, Sir John Tenniel) can be seen everywhere, from the world of advertising to that of atomic physics.

    DON'T USE THIS VERSION! spelling and formating errors

    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

    I Also Recommend:

    Classic story ruined by lousy art

    I'll never understand why anyone would want to re-illustrate a book whose illustrations are as iconic as the book itself. John Tenneil's work on the original books needs no replacing and certainly not with the mess I'm confronted with here. Camille Rose Garcia may have a place in the world of art. I'm sure there are those who like this sort of thing and I can see where something could be made of such a style. What *cannot* be made from it is a decent representation of Alice and the denizens of Wonderland. By making *everything* crazy and over-the-top, Garcia destroys the dichotomy of the story of normal Alice amongst the strageness of Wonderland.

    Take my advice. Avoid this edition and stick to those that use the original Tenniel illustrations.

    Bad format - don't download

    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.

    Good book... for the price

    Good book. Classic read. A few spelling mistakes but not as bad as the other free Alice in wonderland nook books. Formatting is much better compared to other free copies of the book. But still has a few formatting errors. The book itself is a wonderful story as long as you are not some uptight grammar buff who cannot stand minor grammatical errors.

    Alice in Wonderland . . .

    I've got absolutely no idea why, but suddenly I have been completely drawn to and facinated with this book. It's totally amazing and full of fantasy and humor! There is definately nothing like it. Lewis Carrol, you are a genius!
    Xoxo to all,
