First published in 1865, The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland was an immediate success. Carroll's sense of the absurd and his amazing gift for games of logic and language have made the Alice books popular with both adults and children, and they have remained some of the best-known children's books written in English. Commuters Library recaptures the magic in this superb unabridged reading. Follow Alice down the rabbit hole; go with her to meet the Caterpillar, the Mad-Hatter, the Mock Turtle, and the Queen of Hearts. The journey is as strange and wonderful as it has always been.

Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There stands alone as a great work of fantasy. Written six years after The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland, it is in many ways a more complex and far-ranging story. In the backward land of the looking glass, hear the story of the Jabberwocky and be the guest of Tweedledum and Tweedledee and confront Humpty Dumpty who scornfully states, When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean: neither more nor less.

    " Not the most memorable book, just one of those that one should read in order to expand the imagination. Interesting writing style. Not much to be said about it really. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 5/21/2011

    " Very good for a kids book, but now that I am rereading it as an older person, I find that it has no significant plot structure. Still, it was a great book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sadie | 5/20/2011

    " It was fascinating. The adventure, the poems, and the made-up words! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Virginia | 5/19/2011

    " I've read "Alice" five or six times. It is my favorite book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 5/18/2011

    " First in a long line of classics I should have read ages ago!

    Delightful and witty, this was far more enjoyable than I expected. The puns were fantastic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yorky | 5/17/2011

    " Loved this book soooo much - its so random!! My only regret is reading it on my iphone and therefore not getting illustrations I would say if you are going to read this make sure there are pictures go along with!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Claire | 5/16/2011

    " It takes some perseverance to get through this, and really I checked out after the mock turtle. I don't really understand this book, the ending was abrupt and I'm just glad for disney's version. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 5/16/2011

    " I enjoyed this book quite a bit. I would think twice about reading it with or to smaller children due to the queen's actions and comments. I could see how that would scare little ones. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie | 5/15/2011

    " Reading this on my Kindle - love Lewis Carroll's way with words - unfortuneately, missing the illustrations!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 George | 5/14/2011

    " My only gripe was the way the book was written, but that's a given considering the time it was first conceived.

    A wonderful tale nonetheless (or series of tales, for that matter). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gina | 5/13/2011

    " More than the actual plot of the story, I enjoyed watching the though process of the author unravel into such odd charters and scenarios. The dialogue was very entertaining, it made you think about the words in a different way as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy | 5/10/2011

    " What a curious little book. "
