    " I liked the first Alice book better, but I really liked the weirdness (or as Alice would say "Very Curious") and poetry in this book. "

    " Adeventures in Wonderland kept me in stitches. Very much the vein of Amelia Bedelia, the residents of wonderland take most things Alice says quite literally, making for many hilarious comments and mutterings under breaths. I would have rated this at five stars, and I quite certainly think that AAW is worthy of it, but Through the Looking-Glass is much more dry, with the wonderful exceptions of Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, however, if you're looking to compare against the Disney movie, it is quite important to press onward and read TLG. "

    " after watching tim burton's amalgamation of through the looking glass & alice in wonderland, i decided it would be worth the while to read this novel (especially since i remembered enjoying alice in wonderland as a child). i realized i'm not a huge fan of abstraction without direct (or implied) purpose. i'm sure that in a closer analysis, there is much to be seen & understood in the book in terms of symbolism, interpretations, etc. and yet, i found myself skimming through nonsensical poems and characters - eager to get to the end of the novel. eh, i do believe there is brilliance there, i just could not see it. "

    " I like this one better that Alice In Wonderland because the story is more appaling to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meredith | 1/17/2014

    " I didn't like this as well as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, although it does contain some of the more famous (and awesome) poems that Carroll wrote, like The Jabberwocky and that one about the Walrus. It was just as weird as book 1, but not as funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shooting | 1/11/2014

    " I read this with my 4 year old daughter. She liked it. Parts of it were fun, and other parts were a bit monotonous to me. I'm looking forward to reading Alice In Wonderland, and comparing it to this, as I've never read the first one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna (Jaevenstar) | 11/13/2013

    " This was even more confusing than Alice in Wonderland? What was Lewis Carroll on??!! Maybe it would have made more sense if I understood chess at all? I doubt it though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess Baker | 10/31/2013

    " COnfusing parts, but cleverly constructed and just like you are dreaming. I suppose that is how it is meant to be. It is however more confusing than the first one: Alice in Wonderland. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shahrun | 10/14/2013

    " Another completely random adventure with Alice through a very different Wonderland. Plenty of wacky characters willing to quote poetry and a clever chess themed plot. I think it doesn't quite have the magic of the first one though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rrain | 10/6/2013

    " Along with Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, I reread this one nearly ever year. I enjoy it a lot, but it will never be quite as beloved as Alice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gertrude | 9/27/2013

    " Ok...I still preferred Alice in Wonderland. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tricia Perdigon | 9/11/2013

    " i still prefer the idealistic view of Alice in the first one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael X | 9/7/2013

    " A whirlwind of strange and entertaining tableaus, this book holds its own against Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, with its own memorable characters and situations. A must read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthia | 5/21/2013

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa (scarlet21) | 2/7/2013

    " A joy for adults and children or adults who haven't quite grown up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darryl | 1/27/2013

    " This book was okay. You can definitely tell Mr. Carroll was a mathematician by the semantical arguments. But other than that, it was sort of boring and sort of random/psychadelic in a not-really-awesome way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chrisanne | 1/13/2013

    " I like this one better than "Wonderland." "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gina Benalcazar | 12/3/2012

    " 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 Jackie | 12/3/2012

    " Alice in Wonderland is a trip in dreamland and a land of ambiguity. I recommend it as a frequent must read to children as they grow up and learn more levels of understanding language and humor. Lovely book I certainly read way too late in life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 8/2/2012

    " Not as good as Wonderland. So whose dream was it? "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Meetasha Rathi | 2/15/2012

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patty | 1/6/2012

    " My favorite book. Everything is so perfect and it really swept me away into Alice's world. I loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosie S. | 12/6/2011

    " This book, believe it or not, is even MORE nosensical than the first one! It is so weird and random, that sometimes I had to re-read the sentence to make sure I had read it all! I do like this book, though the first one is better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karl | 9/2/2011

    " So spun it made my head. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 April | 5/20/2011

    " This book is some crazy stuff. I'll take a movie version over the book any day. "

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

    " This is one of my all-time favorite books. It is creative, adventurous and oh-so magical. As a child I wished I could be Alice, going off and getting myself in all sorts of trouble. "

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

    " Still my very favorite book of all time! The only book I still read several times a year. Thank you Mr. Carroll! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 5/19/2011

    " This book is full of weird and nonesense poems. The book isn't all trippy and mushroomy as what I expected maybe because I had big expectations from it. After all, it is a children's book. "

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

    " I really enjoyed it but I had to focus on every word because sometimes it made no sense. It was great to finally read the book after having seen the Disney adaptation when I was younger. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 5/18/2011

    " Like so many things, the book "

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

    " This is my favorite book of all time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mariapia | 5/16/2011

    " ..solo alla ingenua lettura di un fanciullo potrebbe apparire un'allegra fiaba per bambini..
    Labirintico, contorto, romanzo psicologico. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 5/11/2011

    " I really enjoyed reading these books, and seeing where the movies came from originally. I would recommend this to anyone really, especially if you like the movies or classic books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 5/11/2011

    " This is more than a wonderful, heartfelt childhood story. Lewis Carroll is an expert on the strange and misfit, a master of literary pun. Meant for both younger audiences and adults. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leela | 5/10/2011

    " I loved these books when I was a kid. I should read them again; there is muchness in those imaginings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 5/10/2011

    " Another one that I hadn't read since I was a child. I was inspired to re-read it by what Joyce Carol Oates wrote about it in "Roughn Country". A surprisingly adult book--funny, frightening and often profound. Very glad to have rediscovered it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pete | 5/7/2011

    " A whole lot of crack was smoked for this one. "
