    • Curiouser and curiouser edition This is the annotated edition, collecting both novels in the Alice book series Alice s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass and What Alice found There.WE RE ALL MAD HEREBegin at the beginning This was technically a re reading since I ve already read both novels previously, the key difference here was that this is an annotated edition, which includes a comprehensive section, at the end of each chapter, with tons of notes revealing behind the scene [...]

    • This edition has an interesting and informative introduction in which Martin Gardner refers to the Bible and all other great works of fantasy, which amused me The annotations to the text are often quite interesting if somewhat intrusive I found it best to read all of them for a chapter before beginning to read the chapter itself, having them then in my knowledge base without having to be interrupted from the flow of the story I enjoying all the punning I had not realized that the songs were all [...]

    • This is the very copy I read many times Wish I still had it to share with my kids Got it remaindered in some bookstore Annotated by Math and science writer Martin Gardner I was not interested in math, but he helped explain the math and logic references I had read it before getting this copy, but this helped to see it deeply, of course.


    • For the Celebrity Death Match vs The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo I mean, wot the fuck is it wiv this Salander bitch Alice scowls I m telling you, I m sick of it Bugger the Annotated Alice , we re putting out the Unexpurgated Alice right now They need to be told that I did all that stuff bigger and better than she did AND I had to give mate s rates to fucking Charles Dickens Geez Give me a break What NOW asks Humpty nervously glancing at the wall next to them She ignores him Like we didn t have d [...]


    • Written for the Celebrity Death Match Review TournamentThe Annotated Alice versus 1984Alice looked around at the gray drab buildings I must have wandered off the path This is nothing like anything I ve ever seen before in Wonderland The city was devoid of people Occasionally a siren would blare but there were no human and animal sounds A poster of a intimidating man with the words BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU was on practically every wall Interesting said Alice, It looks a little like my Uncle Os [...]


    • I recently saw a review where someone had read Alice s Adventures in Wonderland, felt completely confused, and was basically told by all commenters that Carroll was on Opium, as an explanation for the weirdness of the writing I suggest that original poster, instead, pick up a copy of The Annotated Alice Both Alice s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass were essentially written for one person, Alice Liddell Most of the references in the books that are completely odd are in jokes [...]


    • REVIEW FOR CELEBRITY DEATH MATCH ONLYAlice, who doesn t want to get her petticoats dirty, is idly chewing on a magic mushroom and looks quite tall for her tender years she is waiting patiently for her opponent in direct contrast to a white rabbit who is chagrined at the wasting time A screech of tires announces Pippi Lisbeth arrival on a Harley sweet she bends down to fill her hands with mud and proceeds to smear it over her barely clad tattooed form.L you can call me Wasp because I am going to [...]


    • I was genuinely delighted to reacquaint myself with a much loved book from childhood I greatly enjoyed re reading Alice s adventures, particularly from the perspective I have now, as an adult The level of inventiveness demonstrated by Lewis Carroll impressed me in a way I would not have considered at age 8.I was less impressed with the exceedingly long footnotes which paralleled the original text While I appreciated the level of scholarship which surrounds Lewis Carroll s work, I found many of t [...]


    • This is the copy of the classic tales that I grew up with The annotated version confused me some when I was young, but I ve always loved the illustrations I remember my Dad reading some of this to me so many years ago I didn t remember the whole story, but I know he s always loved the poetry especially Jabberwocky We listened to Michael York narrate Alice s Adventures in Wonderland on audio CD while we followed along with the book Then, we listened to Donada Peters narrate the second half of the [...]


    • Everyone should spend a couple of frabjous days every 30 years or so with Alice Even better to bring Martin Gardner along for his enlightening bits like chortle being a word coined by Lewis Carroll who knew


    • All in the golden afternoonFull leisurely we glide For both our oars, with little skill,By little arms are plied,While little hands make vain pretenceOur wanders to guide.Ah, cruel Three In such an hour,Beneath such dreamy weather,To beg a tale of breath too weakTo stir the tiniest feather Yet what can one poor voice availAgainst three tongues together Imperious Prima flashes forthHer edict to begin it In gentler tones Secunda hopes There will be nonsense in it While Tertia interrupts the taleNo [...]


    • I don t think I would have half the appreciation I now do for Lewis Carroll if it weren t for the annotations accompanying this edition of the text Besides the grunt work of explaining Victorian terms and concepts now outdated look up bathing machines for the example I found most strange , the annotations shed on light on the emotional dimension to the books, which seems like an absurd idea at first glance given that they re nonsense tales But Lewis Carroll adored Alice Liddell innocently or not [...]


    • What I love about the Alice stories, is that I could read it multiple times with a new experience each time There are so many puns, death jokes, and word plays that I did not understand the first time that I read it I would highly recommend reading an annotated version such as this one, because about 75% of the books is pop culture reference from Victorian England, inside jokes, and logic and mathematics allusions I also like how purely childish these stories are They don t need to have a moral [...]


    • The ultimate Alice Brimming with fascinating side notes that help explicate some of the murkier jokes and shine a blazing spotlight on Carroll s full cleverness and wit Adorned with beautiful reproductions of the classic Tenniel drawings Heaven.What an original Lewis Carroll was There s no one like him his voice is unmistakable The wit, the cleverness, the intellect and the sheer playfulness of the writing guarantees a good time is had by adults as well as children.One thing that is completely a [...]


    • El absurdo no es para mi Se me ha hecho largo a pesar de lo corto que es, y me temo que muchas de las anotaciones no solo no aclaran sino que a aden confusi n frustraci n Si fuera un libro contempor neo le daria una sola estrella por ese final facil n.



    • Alice was amongst the first tales I read, and even from the start I ve had a complicated relationship with it At first, it was too weird to me, everyone was so crazy and spoke so inintelligibly, and I couldn t for the little life of me understand what the accursed point of this bizarre book was supposed to be Thankfully, I was young enough to consider myself satisfied with the pretty and colourful illustrations and call it a good read.I reread it years later, and it was still weird as ever Altho [...]


    • This beautiful hardbound edition of both Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass is made heavenly by the inclusion of luxurious annotations, original illustrations by John Tenniel, and a long lost chapter Editor Gardner reprints acres of trivia provided by scholars and fans in the annotations, which range from definitions or contextual clues to like suggested answers to the famous riddle Why is a raven like a writing desk At times, the annotations seem a little indulgent there are many [...]


    • Really wonderful Illumines many Victorian commonplaces that aren t so commonplace today, and provides source material for Carroll s allusions I felt as though I was taking a class with dozens of Carroll scholars whose opinions, insights, and guesses the editor, Martin Gardner, uses as annotations when original source material does not exist and even when it does The result is a feast of information and insightful literary criticism for the diehard Alice fan and a great reference for anyone who f [...]


    • Worth finding for the introduction alone.And the original illustrations They are rather important.However, this book is probably most useful for the purpose of discrediting the many absurd theories surrounding the Alice novels.If anything, I would say that the books are reader s books It may be that Wonder Land was not written for the general reader really none of us are Alice Liddel but the academically minded reader will find much to enjoy in The Annotated Alice.


    • I really enjoyed this edition, a book I still own But, unlike most people, I ve never been a huge Alice in Wonderland fan I read this book in elementary school and I liked it Had reasons to read other editions of the Alice in Wonderland part of this book for a college English class, and was simply not wowed.


    • My favorite book of all time This annotated version only made me love it Now I want the newest version of this book, in hardcover When s Christmas



    • I fairly enjoyed reading the both Alice books in this annotated edition At first I was a little disappointed because the actual reading experience doesn t meet the mythic expectations I had, being brought up in a world where Alice is a Goddess of Western culture But after a while I was able to connect with the story and style and The notes of Martin Gardner are a great addition to deciphering riddles and poems, word puns, logical structures and Victorian culture references.Overall I think I li [...]


    • I find Alice s adventures to be terribly boring and sleep inducing The contextual notes added another dimension to the text and were slightly interesting, but not enough to redeem the two texts overall The nonsense wasn t funny, charming, or engaging I thought the characters were annoying, frustrating, and that everything was pointless in the end, especially since I didn t enjoy the journey.I was supposed to read this for my Brit Lit class back in my college days and never finished it in fact, [...]


    • Even an Alice aficionado like me can t appreciate the depth and breadth and minutiae of the annotations Love the variety of illustration styles tho with several different artists interpretations of each classic scene.


    • Read Harder Task Children s Lit before 1980 I found it so interesting to learn the history behind the Alice stories Now I want to read a biography of Lewis Carroll.


    • I ve read Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass at least a dozen times, and noticed something new and intriguing each time, which is why it earns 5 stars The annotations in this edition add even Fantastic wordplay, satirical takes on then famous poems, and illustrations that do double and triple duty add layers to a kid sized story of adventure.I love how the sentences challenge our assumptions of how language works, what metaphor, grammar, and style can do Alice s reactions to the [...]
