    " Either i didnt understand the book or this is not my genre!(more of a dan brown person)... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew Scott | 2/15/2014

    " A wonderfully bizarre continuation of Alice's adventures (although it is not a follow up and no mention is given of her Wonderland journey throughout the book). Reminds us of what it is to imagine the world through childs eyes once more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gwynne | 2/6/2014

    " Reading the Complete Lewis Carroll right now, and was surprised to discover that this sequel is by far the superior of the Alice books. It's clever and odd and disturbing, and made me giggle on the subway. I only wish I had a better understanding of the game of chess, since the entire book is structured around a metaphysical chess game. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn | 2/3/2014

    " Quite an interesting book... Very lovable, but quite queer and confusing at times. I had a hard time understanding it as a child, and even now it's questionable. A good book though! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Estrella | 2/2/2014

    " i dont know if i like it or not "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 2/1/2014

    " I didn't expect much of this book, since I hated the Disney movie (way too much happens in a very short time). I wanted to read it anyway, just because it's one of the most famous children's classics. I was pleasantly surprised. It's a very well-written story, very British, and it's easy to immerse yourself in the wonderland Alice finds herself in. I especially loved the little comments Alice keeps making in her head - very funny! I am now going to continue with 'Through the Looking Glass'. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna Thomas | 1/31/2014

    " For some reason Alice just annoyed me throughout the whole book :( "

    " "Alice in Wonderland," by Lewis Carroll, is a story told that will let children feeling happy and adventurous. The story begins with Alice sitting by her cat, Dinah, and insisting that one day she would in fact run away to a far away place. With Carroll's poetic, yet strange word choice, his flowing sentences, and his creation of this mysterious land, a child cannot put the book down in fear of missing out on the next big event. The book is a very fast read, and several illustrations are sketched in black and white to guide the child in making a mental image. The characters are all very silly and quirky, such as the March Hare and the Mock Turtle, and Alice just cannot put them in line. Throughout the story she becomes very frustrated with the behavior of these awful creatures, and frequently reminds them to use their manners. An evil which even captures the poor girl, and puts her on trial in front of an entire courthouse of "people." In the midst of a commotion in the courthouse, Alice wakes up right back where she started; in her grassy bed outside of her nicely decorated Victorian house. I would not recommend this book to read to class just because of the fact that it doesn't really have a great plot setting. The story is great within itself, but it would be a little bit confusing to teach "beginning, middle, and end" with this type of book, and I feel that there are better choices to use for elementary language arts or english lessons. If wanting to use, I would use it with 4h or 5th grade students "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiffany | 1/26/2014

    " The edition I read was actually an online version with the same illustrations and everything. It is a rather fun book, and is certainly far deeper than the "children's book" that it is depicted to be on its surface. I wouldn't say I loved it, but it was certainly worth finally reading the book behind a story I have heard so much about. The language twists alone made it well worth it, as there is definitely a lot of creativity there. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Akumatakeshi | 1/24/2014

    " Another amazing story from Lewis Carroll. This is a sequel to Alice in Wonderland. But the story is completely different yet as good as it's predecessor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 GraceN | 1/19/2014

    " I enjoyed Through The Looking-Glass way more. The book is very wacky and hilarious and had many hidden true meanings which I enjoyed. Very random setiments, but worth reading. I also loved the poems in the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucas Oliveira | 1/19/2014

    " According to the Oxford dictionary, the definition of fantasy is the product of imagining the impossible or improbable things.The two books involving Alice, and the fantasy is clearly used because Alice creates a fantasy in your dreams. During the stories you can see the relationship between fantasy and the real world in the characters as examples the Queen of Hearts in the real world would be a boring teacher or a annoying boss, the rabbit would be an adult who only thinks about the job and the Cheshire cat would be a child for his smile and can do whatever he wants. We can see that the book mentions the growth, as Alice is a girl who is growing up, the fantasy world shows how people behave in each age, as the child would be the cat, the rabbit would be the adult and mock turtle would be a old man but alice behaves like an adult when she becomes tall after eating a piece of mushroom, a scene which represents this is when she puts her authority against the Queen of Hearts in the judgment.But has two remarkable characters who indicate that Alice is already the time to grow up, the first is the rabbit who acts with responsibly and the second is the caterpillar that some day will turn a butterfly.We notice that the work of Lewis Carrol in real world has had some influence in the book as mathematician and poet because he put several poems in the books. In conclusion this book is for all ages but the mature person will understand the mysteries that the book hides because when a child reads this book they will not pay attention to details that are difficult to be perceived then in need an attentive reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 SJ | 1/18/2014

    " As with the first book, I can just not bring myself to be excited about it. Not my cup of tea at all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emma | 1/17/2014

    " A rare case in which the sequel is even better than the original, in Through the Looking-Glass we learn about life being a vast game of chess, what bread-and-butterflies eat, and what an un-birthday is. Sadly, the book leads us to the realization that it's never jam today, but, having learned how to deal with royalty, we also learn how to be royalty. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mr. Weston | 1/17/2014

    " Alice's adventures are a testament to a child's imagination. Carroll's stories are cute and enjoyable, but further analysis is possible re: motifs of dreams vs. reality, rabbits, fish, and the importance of other animals and their journeys throughout the two stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Morgan | 1/12/2014

    " Pretty much all I have to say is: Wow. That was another humorous, yet thought provoking, crazy wild ride through Lewis Carroll's mind. Awesome book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Samuel | 1/7/2014

    " This book is one of the best classics I have ever read. One thing I wonder is: why right like you are crazy? What's the point in this book? Who did he write it for? Anyone have any answers? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lucy Mclaughlin | 1/4/2014

    " As a child I was fascinated with Alice In Wonderland and I still am. I loved this book, such a clever play on words. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dorer002 | 12/29/2013

    " Man, I felt like I was high reading this book. Everything is such a flowing, strange story. I know I read this as a child, but didn't remember all the details, and I think I definitely understood more fo the puns and wordplay as an adult. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krista | 12/26/2013

    " Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite books. It makes me laugh out loud so much that I read it almost every year. I love rediscovering the intricacies of language, and it reminds me not to take myself too seriously. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea Wall | 12/25/2013

    " Awesome of course. I love Alice and Wonderland and through the looking glass. I read them when I was 15, and I remember not understanding it at all as a kid. :D Now I love it though. Funny, witty strange and totally great and super fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Evan Hammerman | 12/21/2013

    " I read this back in the first Nixon administration. I will have to read it again to really talk about it. But this book is one of the classics everyone should have read at some point. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Koby | 12/2/2013

    " It's good not as good as the first. "

    " Not what I was expecting for some reason. Found it annoying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ian Rhines | 11/14/2013

    " I read this book in school. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nomad nimrod | 11/12/2013

    " cant see, why so many people like this one "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caroll | 10/19/2013

    " One of my favorite classics! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patrick | 9/7/2013

    " Good, but not as good as Alice in Wonderland. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cathy | 7/29/2013

    " Crazy, wonderful and great for getting kids hooked on reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abrett | 7/13/2013

    " I was good but not great. I loved the images and all of the randomness! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jairin | 5/16/2013

    " This was also a very confusing book and full of symbolism. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl | 4/18/2013

    " If I were a more discerning reader, I would love to try to figure out what the imagery and language mean. As it was, I imagined it to be an LSD dream. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Patrick John | 4/13/2013

    " Lewis Carroll must have been having a drug trip with a typewriter when he wrote this. Not enjoyable to read. No discernable plot. Colorful, but not very rich characters. Classic because it's old. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christa | 1/21/2013

    " One of the best fantasy adventures ever. Great book. Loved it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paula | 1/20/2013

    " I've started adding some of the classics into my reading. I have never actually read this story until now, but I love it. What imagination Mr. Carroll had. What a fabulous and quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nayantara | 1/19/2013

    " Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass will always have a special place in my heart. They are wonderful books! Lewis Carroll was a genius! It's absolutely bizarre. But that's the point, you need to embrace the bizarre-ness! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 12/1/2012

    " I did not expect it to be so juvinille. I liked it though! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Julia Hayes | 10/6/2012

    " I personally did not like this. It was too weird for me and did not seem to make sense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 8/26/2012

    " Like Alice in Wonderland, this book is essentially required reading, for the many allusions you'll find to it elsewhere. The story was a bit more interesting and enjoyable than Alice, and a fast read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bea Bolinger | 7/1/2012

    " So I can say I read this book now that I've finished writing a stage verison of Through the Looking Glass, even though I kinda read the book backwards (the White Queen would be very pleased indeed). Liked it okay. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aroura | 3/4/2012

    " it was a fun book to read! let your inner child out to play once in a while "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 2/14/2012

    " Not near as good as the first. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcus | 9/30/2011

    " I'm not quite sure that "got it". I probably shouldn't undergo pyschoanalysis anytime soon though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Scott Hayden | 6/22/2011

    " Like Wizard of Oz books, too random to hold my interest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 NuHunni | 6/10/2011

    " I didn't love it, but didn't hate it either!! It was a fun read and all I can say is what a craaazzyyy world Alice fell into! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mary | 6/2/2011

    " so i read this and Alice in Wonderland in preparation for Alice in Zombie-land (i think its called. I wanted some frame of reference when reading that one...these two were really weird, and irritating. They were what they set out to be though, two books about little girls dreams, very nonsensical. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gina | 5/17/2011

    " This story has no plot, and no structure. It seems almost like random thoughts going through the author's head in no organized manner. The only reason I kept reading was because it was crazy to watch Carrol's ideas unfold. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sherry | 5/2/2011

    " Lewis Carroll is just sooooooooo imaginative! I love the whole book; it definitely is a classic. There's so many creative poems in them, and the whole plot sucks the reader into the story. I really wish that Alice's adventures would never end! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jed | 4/18/2011

    " Not as good as Alice in Wonderland, but still delightful. The poetry in "Looking Glass" is better though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Casey | 4/8/2011

    " This book wasn't as strange as the first, but it also felt slower, to me. Not that this book was awful. I loved the poetry in it, and it seems that there is more direction in this story.

    Probably not a book I'll ever read again, but one worth reading at least once. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cory | 4/7/2011

    " Much better than Alice in Wonderland, which I liked, too. I had forgotten that I read large portions of this in my Logic class in college. Very fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthia | 4/4/2011

    " Wonderfully illustrated and full of awesome colour! I loved th old style even though at times I didn't understand the book at all. I sure that the written version would add to my interest. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mary | 4/4/2011

    " This book is just marginally better than Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. I'm just not taken with Carroll's style. He had a good imagination too bad he was such a bad writer. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sean | 4/2/2011

    " Hated it. Got about a third of the way through it and bailed. "

About the Author
Author Lewis Carroll

Lewis Carroll was the pen name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832–1898), English author, mathematician, and photographer. One of eleven children of a scholarly country parson, he studied mathematics at Oxford, obtained a university post, and then was ordained as a deacon but found true success with his masterpiece, Alice’s Adventures Under Ground, now known as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, which originated as a story told to a young friend, Alice Liddell, during a boating trip on the Thames. Among his other works are Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, The Hunting of the Snark, and Jabberwocky.
