Overview

Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1871) is a work of children's literature by Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson), generally categorized as literary nonsense. It is the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865). Although it makes no reference to the events in the earlier book, 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, on Alice's birthday (May 4), 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, on November 4 (the day before Guy Fawkes Night), 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.

Meet the Author

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (January 27, 1832 – January 14, 1898),
better known by the pen name Lewis Carroll, was an English author,
mathematician, logician, Anglican clergyman, and photographer. His
most famous writings are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its
sequel Through the Looking-Glass as well as the poems "The Hunting
of the Snark" and "Jabberwocky", all considered to be within the
genre of literary nonsense. His facility at word play, logic, and
fantasy has delighted audiences ranging from children to the
literary elite. But beyond this, his work has become embedded
deeply in modern culture. He has directly influenced many artists.
There are societies dedicated to the enjoyment and promotion of his
works and the investigation of his life in many parts of the world
including North America, Japan, the United Kingdom, and New
Zealand. His biography has recently come under much question as a
result of what some call the "Carroll Myth."

Why purchase this book for a couple of dollars when there is a free version? It is exactly the same.

Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll is the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Carroll does not fail in this absurd romp through Looking-Glass Land. The story is full of the Topsy-turvey dialog that made Wonderland a classic. A fun read!

I loved this book because it isn't really suposed to make a lot of sense. This is a good choice for you if you like amazing creatures and nonsensical poetry. Overall I think this book is beautifly written, well illustrated, and a classic!

It seems a little piontless to even try reading. It's just a run-on from the original, which still wasn't very good.
