Opinion

From Library Staff

If you are familiar with the Disney film version, you might be in for a treat when you see how different the original book actually is. Much of the classic wackiness and all the zany characters are here--the Cheshire Cat, the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts--but there are fun po... Read More »

A classic tale of childhood wonder, 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' is a wonderful story about a young girl's perspective of life and logic. Leaving much to the imagination, yet provoking just as much thought, this story shows that children grow up in their own ways. Alice comes out of her 'dream' with the wish that things were normal again, while at the beginning she wanted things to be different. I believe that this is a point that all must grow up, but it also proves that things move along in their own way.

You can definitely tell that this was written in a different era, and children, and some adults, might have trouble with the wording of the sentences and some of the more obscure ones that have fallen out of use, but if you can get past that, it's a charming book that will spark the imagination of any who read it. I would suggest that any who love a good adventure and those who want to recapture their childhood wonder should read this work.

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 it's 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.

There are so many things that one notices, or would notice, at different stages in life. The characters of Alice in Wonderland are all so uniquely their own, I wonder how Lewis Caroll got the idea? Could it be possible that he had a dream? As most know, this childhood story is quite the entertaining one, with frequent bumps and turns throughout, and lacking in no concepts. There are a few things that may overlap in the movie, or aren't there in general but I do think the movie was great too. I personally think that this book can be read to anyone of any age, as long as they have the patience to listen. 4/5 stars

Reading "Alice in Wonderland" as an adult is quite a different experience from reading it as a child. Each in their own way delights. As a child I saw the wonder in it and now I saw the cleverness. Some of the statements which may have seemed like nonsense were actually great examples of logic. For example, when the March Hare asks Alice to "take some more tea," she is offended. "I've had nothing yet, so I can't take more." to this the Hatter retorts, "You mean you can't take LESS.; It's very easy to take more than nothing." The book is full of such statements which make for excellent reading.

I'd never read this before so it was nice to do that. I've read books based off this one that I absolutely loved so it was too bad I didn't like this one more.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll was originally published in 1865. I remember when I was watching the movie, (which I never do until I have read the book) and I really enjoyed it. There were a few differences from the movie but while reading the book, I realized that it was sort of dark to be considered a children’s book with many mentionings of being beheaded by the red queen. However this book is pretty suitable for both kids and adults because adults can think back on this classic and this is something that can entertain the kids. This book is less than a hundred pages so if you have an hour or two, depending on how fast you read, this is the perfect book to read. - @ShayReads of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

The pictures are amazing, and the story is pretty good. You get to meet many different types of creatures. It is not a bad book.

A fun read to the kids but some of the words and concepts were a little big for my 4 and 5 year olds.

One hot summer's day, Alice tumbles down a rabbit hole and straight into Wonderland. Things turn "curiouser and curiouser" as she meets the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts, the Mock Turtle, and the Mad Hatter.
