Overview

“Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There” is a work of literature by Lewis Carroll. It is the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The themes and settings of Through the Looking-Glass make it a kind of mirror image of Wonderland: the first book begins outdoors, in the warm month of May, uses frequent changes in size as a plot device, and draws on the imagery of playing cards; the second opens indoors on a snowy, wintry night exactly six months later, in November, uses frequent changes in time and spatial directions as a plot device, and draws on the imagery of chess. In it, there are many mirror themes, including opposites, time running backwards, and so on. This novel provides superior entertainment for the whole family. The book includes 12 chapters filled with fantasy and magic. We find Carroll's inquisitive heroine in a fantastic land where everything is reversed. Alice encounters talking flowers, madcap kings and queens, and becomes a pawn in a bizarre chess game involving Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, and other amusing nursery-rhyme characters. This timeless novel has been published several times before and it is a pleasure to publish this new, high quality, and affordable edition. This edition includes about 50 illustrations.

the major problems with this nook book are as follows... 1. most words are spelled wrong 2. there are random numbers and words in the middle of lines that don't belong there 3. there are so many of these mistakes it's almost impossible to read.

I loce this book, but this copy of it is barely enjoyable because of the botched formatting. You may try it, but I don't recommend it.

Not the worst I've seen here, as pages are somewhat readable, but it's definitely striving to be among the others in the bottom of the trash heap.

The text has apparently not been proofread or edited at all after scanning. It is full of scanning errors including misspelled words, unrelated symbols, extraneous spaces and empty lines, and blocks of text which are out of order.

Poor quality at times. Recommended only for those tolerant souls. Otherwise, an excellent story.

The story is wonderfull as you probably know. This version has illistrations. On the other hand, it is a rather poor OCR capture of a New York public library book. Sections are jibberish characters. Page brakes are not well controlled, with page headers interspersed in the text.
