Overview

Through The Looking Glass and What Alice Found There by Lewis Carroll


"She generally gave herself very good advice, (though she very seldom followed it)."

A sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the book tells of Alice's experiences when she climbs through a mirror to discover a bizarre fantasy world on the other side of the glass.

In looking-glass land everything is reversed, just as reflections are reversed in a mirror. Brooks and hedges divide the land into a checker-board, and Alice finds herself a white pawn in the whimsical and fantastic game of chess that constitutes the bulk of the story. On her trip to the eighth square, where she at last becomes a queen, Alice meets talking flowers, looking-glass insects , a man in a white paper suit, such nursery rhyme characters as Humpty Dumpty and the Lion and the Unicorn, and many others, including Tweedledum and Tweededee and the White Knight.

Lewis Carroll's much-analyzed poem Jabberwocky makes its first appearance in Through The Looking Glass.

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.
