When Through the Looking Glass was published in 1871, audiences were as delighted with the book as they were with Lewis Carroll’s first masterpiece, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alice, now slightly older, walks through a mirror into the Looking-Glass House and immediately becomes involved in a strange game of chess. Soon, she is exploring the rest of the house, meeting a sequence of characters now familiar to most: Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Red Queen, Humpty Dumpty, and the Walrus, just to name a few. The popular and linguistically playful poem “Jabberwocky” is also featured in Through the Looking Glass.

    " Liked it better than Wonderland though. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Hillary | 2/12/2014

    " I just can't get into these books! I read the words, and re-read them and nothing makes sense. Perhaps I'll try again sometime, but not any time soon "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cat15 | 1/31/2014

    " It it strange but a really good book to read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanne Nock | 1/31/2014

    " Actually preferred this to "Alice in Wonderland", but maybe I'd just acclimatised by this point ! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 1/30/2014

    " This book isn't very descriptive and the words not amazing but the ideas and plot in this book is revolutionary. I really enjoyed it though it is clear it is a child's book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kirakori | 1/24/2014

    " Not my type of book. "

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

    " I much preferred Carroll's 'Alice in Wonderland' to this story. This seemed to be trying too hard to be funny. I did like the word play, but it was similar in style to 'Alice in Wonderland' and just seemed like a younger sibling that was trying too hard. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karl | 1/16/2014

    " So spun it made my head. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew Scott | 1/12/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandon Baggett | 1/7/2014

    " I really enjoyed all of the poems that were offered here. It is definitely a great work on the play of words. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alida | 12/31/2013

    " I had never read this book. High time I did. I laughed out loud at times. Lewis Carrol would have been fun to know. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben | 12/28/2013

    " An excellent, surreal children's story with memorable characters. Favorite line: "Nurse! Do let's pretend that I'm a hungry hyaena and you're a bone." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeremy Begley | 12/12/2013

    " "The question," said Humpty Dumpty, "Is who is to be master, and that is all." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacey | 12/12/2013

    " This was okay. I think his books are more enjoyable with the visuals you get in movie format. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 12/11/2013

    " The first book I read on my kindle! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sensorium Epica | 10/3/2013

    " One of the best books ever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 9/15/2013

    " As good as a childhood story can get, it is simple and confusing at the same time, loved it, highly recommend it to those who want to reminiscence on old tales. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Whitney | 4/5/2013

    " I don't know if it's just because I'm more familiar with Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but this seemed much more dream-like...in the way that kids want to tell you every detail of their dreams in the morning...a boring way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda Coppedge | 3/25/2013

    " Superior to the first book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 D | 2/19/2013

    " Noted as early inspiration for Kasparov. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 6/30/2012

    " Even zanier than Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Honestly, a little disturbing. That trial just goes on and on and on.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 4/23/2012

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebeca Sewing de paula | 3/16/2012

    " A bit boring, but I liked it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 9/16/2011

    " I love this book! Even more so than Alice in Wonderland, the characters just jump from the prose in such a way that I'm hard pressed to put it down every time I read it; be it the 1st or 5th time! (And I'm sure many more to come) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary-Beth | 9/1/2011

    " I love this book, but then I have a strange addiction to nonsense, rhyming and repetition. I don't understand enough of chess to comprehend the moves worked out through the book, but I do enjoy the strange adventures Alice partakes in. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Claudia Harrington | 7/22/2011

    " I like farytales but for some reason I found this book to tidius. I couldn't finish it "

  • 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yixin | 3/25/2011

    " We read this book on the class. "
