I had never read it as a child so I figured I would go ahead. The whole time I was reading this book I was able to visualize Disney's "Alice in Wonderland". The movie followed the book to a T and I had forgotten how crazy,silly totally confusing this story is but it was so much fun to read.

I understand that the Alice books have a huge following, but I will not be joining that group. Literary nonsense is not for me. I love the Jabberwocky poem, but it was meant to be brief and interesting for that moment. Trying to draw it out into a plotless smorgasbord of gibberish was where I felt this went wrong. Perhaps if I'd been younger I would more enjoy ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND, but as an adult, it's just not for me. It seems that the only thing interesting about Wonderland would be the visuals and the imagery that its built on does not lend itself well to a non-visual medium, such as this book. I know it's short, I know it's meant for the kids, but I just thought it was a waste of time with no meaning and, for me, if I can't reflect upon it afterwards and feel I've taken something away from it, I simply don't care. I wouldn't recommend ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND.

My favourite part was when Alice went to the white rabbits house to get gloves and drinks a potion and grows HUGE. My favourite character was Alice. In the book, Alice kept changing sizes.

Excellent book. You think of it as a "children's" book, but it's an enjoyable read for people of all ages.
Alice's imagination and naivety make for a fun read!

my favorite children's book of all times!
