Overview

Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1871) is a work of literature by Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson). It is the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865). 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 (4 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, on 4 November (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.

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!

I never get tired of the nonsensical characters and language. I love the language and the world. Fun and whimsical.

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