In the most renowned novel by English author Lewis Carroll, restless young Alice literally stumbles into adventure when she follows the hurried, time-obsessed White Rabbit down a hole and into a fantastical realm where animals are quite verbose, logic is in short supply, and royalty tends to be exceedingly unpleasant. Each playfully engaging chapter presents absurd scenarios involving an unforgettable cast of characters, including the grinning Cheshire Cat and the short-tempered Queen of Hearts, and every stop on Alice's peculiar journey is marked by sharp social satire and wondrously witty wordplay.
Love the dang book Awesome book! I read the book in an hour...wow that book is deep! It kinda gets confusing but then again I am only 12... I still really enjoyed the book! Alice in Wonderland was my favorite childhood story when I was younger, THB!!!
Excellent parable of humans. Clearly Alice represents children, who are innocent by nature. In Wonderland, she encounters a myriad of characters, animals - representing the socially least important-, and a court made of cards, all alive with their personalities that irritated Alice. They irritated her because of what they represent: the adults of society, who are contradictory, whimsical, and authoritarian. Only the Mock-turtle and the Gryphon were creatures that could relate to Alice, since they valued art and stories and education.
