    Through the Looking Glass []  2020-1-19 22:44

    Alice returns to yet another madcapped adventure. As Alice plays around with her kittens, Snowdrop and Kitty, she unwittingly steps through the mirror into another globe reminiscent of Wonderland. Along with Alice, we meet the marvelous characters of the Red Queen, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the White Queen, Humpty Dumpty, a lion, a unicorn and the White Knight. Through the Looking Glass is interspersed with oddly amusing poems like the Jabberwocky, The Walrus and the Carpenter, The White Knight’s Song and Hush-a-by lady. But the grandest of all has to be Lewis Caroll’s final poem…“A boat, beneath a sunny sky…”In a Wonderland they lie,Dreaming as the days go by,Dreaming as the summers die:Ever drifting down the stream --Lingering in the golden gleam --Life what is it but a dream?

    Through the Looking Glass []  2020-1-19 22:44

    This Kindle edition is an EXCELLENT choice - 5 stars. 5 stars is also for the original book. I sampled a lot of Alice in Wonderland and all the Through the Looking Glass books I could search available (at Amazon and Gutenberg org - though today I explore some I missed). I believe I found that the best available editions, if you wish both, are:The BLTC at 1.79 Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (BLTC Press Edition) - this edition is very well formatted with all the Tenniel illustrations that I recall and is the one I purchased e Bompacrazy at .99 Alice in Wonderland (Illustrated) or Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (Illustrated) (these two appear to be exactly the same from the samples as both have the 'blotted out' picture of the Drink Me tag): this is almost as amazing a choice, though not quite as well formatted. The sample has a Rackham illustration (and there may be more) as well as the a lot of Tenniel, though, which is a I discovered the Master Edition The Complete Alice in Wonderland (Kindle Master Editions) which I missed before (likely because I was concentrating on Through the Looking Glass, which has far fewer editions, and then pursuing the 'matching' Alice in Wonderlands). Today the is .89 and I am going to it. It is at least as well formatted as the BLTC (based on the sample) and has even more Alice writings (beyond Wonderland and Looking Glass) as well as essays and historical information and other 'add-ons'. He has all the illustrations from Tenniel and extra ones from Holliday and Carroll (I think he should add Rackham's, too).The Gutenberg org versions - lacked the improved linking and formatting, but there are different illustrated editions; may be worth it to you if .99 is too much or you are looking for something other than Tenniel.I did see a kindle ver of an 'Original First Edition' Alice which appears to be illustrated by Arthur Rackham - in case you are looking for that one instead of the better known John Tenniel version. Alice In Wonderland - Original First Edition Ver Published For Kindle - Lewis Carroll That edition has no Tenniel illustrations in the sample; also the text seems to be abridged (or just maybe an earlier version?) and the formatting is poor. Note that the picture of Alice looking at the Cheshire Cat in a tree that appears on this linked product page is not the cover that appears on the downloaded sample; the cover that does appear is of Alice walking with the Duchess and looks like this kindle book: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass - now for more typical Amazon mis-linked craziness, this latter edition has Tenniel illustrations, but beware that they are very little thumbnails and enlarge to very not good quality. I do not recommend either of these editions. The Rackham is available at Gutenberg for a lot of others have said, the primary Kindle edition is a very not good choice, and most others also lack the illustrations. Thank goodness for Through the Looking Glass, it was the chess board appearing in the BLTC sample (and not in the BompaCrazy sample) that finalized my choice in their favor (before finding the Master). Here are the BLTC and BompaCrazy links:Through the Looking Glass - BLTCThrough the Looking Glass (Illustrated) - BompaCrazyI hope this review helps you search your best choice far more quickly than I did.

    Through the Looking Glass []  2020-1-19 22:44

    This review is exclusively for the $1.99 Kindle ver of Lewis Carroll's "Through the Looking Glass".Unlike some of the other reviewers, I did not more than one Kindle version, as I had the benefit of their reviews. But I have to agree with them that for 2 bucks, you cannot go wrong by getting this edition. It is excellent for reading, and it contains all the original Sir John Tenniel illustrations, unspoiled by colorization. Not one word in the poetry flies out of put when columns or fonts are changed. It is quite a amazing ver for reading under a tree by a stream on a warm summer's day (Oops! Wrong story).Since that is the use to which 95% on you will place this edition, I give it five stars. But, for my unique uses, which is quoting Carroll in comments on the Bible, and Graduate School papers, this edition has one flaw. Regardless of how a lot of tricks you try, you cannot explore how this text is mapped to a particular paper copy text, which has page numbers. Scholarly citation rules have not cought up with the electronic book reader is is a very nicely converted book.

    While "Looking Glass" has been available to readers for a lot of years, this edition has the distinct advantage of superb and colourful illustrations. These picture-izations of things taking put in the story add immensely to the joy and fun of the whole work of fantasy/satire. I was delighted to get a copy! It's just the sort of book to share with a young reader, or to read aloud while showing the illustrations. The artist has done a true work of comic and active art with skill and genius, to accompany Lewis Carroll's awesome tale of Alice and her Looking Glass world.

    I saw from reviews that the other "Through the Looking Glass" kindle ver was incomplete. It didn't contain poems or drawings. Well I don't know why anyone would obtain that ver instead of this one. This ver is and it is complete with all poems and pictures. It is all in English, even though part of the title is in French. I really enjoyed the story. I read Alice's Adventures in Wonderland before reading this. The kindle ver I read of that book did not contain the pictures, so it was really nice to see all of the original drawings in Through the Looking Glass.I liked both books, but this one was more fun - I enjoyed following along with the Chess Android game that is played throughout the whole book.

    Through the Looking-Glass - Hardback. The book is totally charming in a lot of ways and I'd totally recommend it. Sadly the delivery was not charming, as the book was left loose and unprotected in a box to rattle around, leaving it slightly battered and used looking. Books should be treated with respect.(it also took 3-4 times to obtain this review past the censors)

    Through the Looking Glass []  2020-1-19 22:44

    The famous cartoon that amalgamates Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass" is a disservice for the books' abilities to stand as two independent stories. I read both of them to my kids at bedtime recently and I enjoyed the disassembled stories much more than the cartoon. As with most books adapted to film, there is so much depth that is lost in the adaptation.I have to be honest, though, that reading this book challenged my oral reading abilities. Its one thing to read a text such as this to yourself, it is another matter entirely to have to vocalize some of the nonsensical verbiage to others. My suggestion to others would be, if opportunity exists, read it to yourself before you read it to someone else. A lot of of the words in the text do not flow naturally off the tongue (or at least not mine).

    Through the Looking Glass []  2020-1-19 22:44

    One of the first books I bought on Kindle was the ver of Alice in Wonderland, which has no Alice herself says, 'what is the use of a book without pictures or conversations?Without the pictures it is simply not the same reading cently, I borrowed the Annotated Alice from the library and read both Alice books that way, with the full text of both books, the Tenniel pictures, and annotations, including the origins of different nursery rhymes, and explaining different references. Although you could read Alice without this, all this does considerably enhance the reading experience.I also own a ver of Aiw by Sterling Classics, which has outstanding color illustration by Robert Ingpen, with art on every page turn which would be a talking point on any bookshelf, and one you would love to present off to visitors. I originally bought this as a gift, but I am very reluctant to part with , in searching around for an illustrated ver you can read on Kindle, I don't think it's possible to do better than the BLTC ver of ATTLG, which this is. It has all the Tenniel pictures. In fact the grayscale on the Kindle gives them an additional dimension in shading, that I did not see on the paperback ver which was very black and white in look. I consider this my best Kindle in terms of quality and useability and pictures on Amazon so far.With Alice, with the dozens of monsters some unfamiliar and hence difficult to imagine, a picture does paint a thousand words. What does a jabberwocky or a gryphon look like?Unfortunately, as all reviews of every ver are lumped into each review, it makes it very difficult to assess the merits of a particular edition. Amazon needs to separate these out to support the are the links:Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (BLTC Press Edition) Original story, complete with attractive tenniel grayscale pictures, for $1.99The Annotated Alice: The Definitive Edition Both stories complete, with Tenniel picures, and ice's Adventures in Wonderland (Sterling Illustrated Classics) Original story plus oustanding illustrations by Robert ice's Adventures in Wonderland The Kindle ver with no pictures.If you wish the complete collection of Lewis Carroll, I recommend the Complete Works of Lewis Carroll (Illustrated)which has both Alice Books with pictures.If you wish to read illustrated books on Kindle I highly recommend this publisher. Just place BLTC Press in Amazon find bar, to find out their other titles a lot of are well known titles, judging from other well formatted, and some of which are illustrated.I hope you found this helpful, and I think you will love it.

    A young girl, named Alice, falls asleep and dreams of exploring the alternate globe inside the mirror (or on the other side of the looking-glass). This is largely a continuation of the fantastical sorts of adventures she had in the first volume (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland), though this time a lot of things are reversed (or in mirror image) and her adventures are constructed within the framework of a life-sized chess board. Most of the poetry I had remembered from my childhood in connection with Alice was in this volume, and I was surprised to find, upon rereading, the harsh and sometimes sinister connotations they relayed that I had not grasped when I was younger and/or perhaps had only heard out of context previously. Interesting read with attractive flowing prose and verse. This Puffin Classics edition included illustrations by John Tenniel. I loved the illustrations!

    Through the Looking Glass []  2020-1-19 22:44

    I really like the Alice books and I'm always on the lookout for an unusual edition. This one is so pretty. Every page has a Tenniel border around it. Some borders have the oysters, Carpenter, Walrus, assorted shells and seaweed. Others contain Tweedledum, Tweedledee, umbrellas, the rattle, vorpal sword and the Jabberwocky. It is an unabridged version. The hardcover ver is glossy, and the picture on front is really from Alice In Wonderland (Alice's with the King & Queen of Hearts) and not Through the Looking Glass. It is published by DSI (Digital Scanning, Inc). On the page adjacent to the cover page, it says that "DSI is committed to bringing a lot of traditional and small known books back to life, retaining the look and feel of the original work". So perhaps someone who published this book long ago created the incorrect choice for the cover. Besides that one little flaw, it is a lovely edition.

    I saw the Dale Chihuly installation at the Dallas Arboretum and it changed my life. Always a lover of glass and color, to see his nature-inspired works was fun and moving. I immediately came home and ordered 2 of his books from Amazon. This one is beautifully done, perfect quality photos, and background on the artist. Buy this if you love art, color, glass and inspiration.

    I bought this book for a family member for Christmas. It was a amazing and was in absolutely excellent condition. I was worried because of a review I had read that a book fell apart at the spine that someone else had ordered, but I had no such issue at all. I will definitely from this seller again. I received the book very quickly and it was packaged very well so it wouldn't obtain damaged in the mail.

    I enjoyed this fast read, and would recommend it to any girl or woman that has ever struggled with not feeling amazing enough or beautiful enough being themselves. The story, illustrations, and book concept work well together to convey a notice a lot of women don't accept about themselves.

    Murder Through the Looking-Glass: Supernatural Beyond Time Romantic Mystery []  2020-2-12 19:0

    To much description of literally EVERYTHING. This book had potential. BUT, the endless droning on about every single thing was to much. I couldn’t wait to be finished with this book. Probably a amazing third of the book was about the actual story. The rest was describing every small thing in endless detail. And this book is ALL about men. And of course the main hero is horny for them all. A couple of lines about one female mate is it. Apparently that’s the only female in this woman’s life. Over all boring.

    UPDATE - I ultimately ended up returning this as I had purchased it as a bonus and the book is advertised as having incredible, original artwork. You would need a microscope to view the little illustrations. I was extremely disappointed though I doI blame myself; I guess I was not paying attention to size. Just note that this edition is barely bigger than my hand. This is more or less a pocket sized volume. The illustrations are REALLY little as is the book itself. I had ordered for a Christmas bonus for someone else and was really shocked and disappointed to see it was not a regular sized book. The reviews were all so high and no one mentioned or complained about the book being so tiny.

    A lot of the other reviewers gave it negative stars for the size of the book, but this actually created me drawn to it more. When i received it, the book itself was actually a bit bigger than i had expected, but it is still small, like a pocketful but i think the dainty-ness of it is what i like the most about it. Theres a sleeve over the burgundy fabric hardcover with a matching ribbon bookmark. the pages are also gold which is a really nice touch. But enough about the amazing appearance of the book ;)The story itself, i have fun and i like reading through some of the similarities and differences of the book and the disney's movie version, the beginning of the book was a bit weird, with the method Alice talks and when she's talking to herself. But overall, i've always loved Alice in Wonderland and its amazing to read the original where the movie had derived from.I think its a nice small keepsake book, would be amazing for younger teens/adults (since the print is smaller, older people might have a harder time reading it) i'm in my early 20's and the size of the print doesn't bother me at all.

    Rating: 5.0/5.0First I wish to talk about this attractive edition of the book released by Barnes & Nobles. It is a purple/pink leather bound with the edges in silver color and it has lots of attractive illustrations that helps a lot in understanding the story better. The papers are thick and very durable and created of amazing quality. The book has two stories Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. I have read the first a lot of years back but it is the first time I read the second e story of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is such a delight to revisit again. It is as charming as it was when I read it first time, maybe I am loving it even more today. It is funny, colourful and sometimes dark if you think of it. I absolutely adore the curiosity of Alice regarding her surroundings and love it when she keeps talking to herself and reacting to that! The characters in both stories are so well crafted, each and every hero of them. I love the first story more and I would give it a complete five star while the second one is more of a three and half or four star but still it has its own charm as though I love Disney's anime movie and also Johnny Depp's film but I still feel that Alice in Wonderland has not been turned into a feature movie that is real to the book. I would love to see that happen in the future. This classic is one of those which is still regarded as one of the best adventure books that is enjoyed by kids and adults equally. Lewis Carroll's story is truly an immortal one.

    The story of Alice in Wonderland is everywhere. It has been created into multiple movies, is consistently referenced, and even has play adaptations. Everyone seems to know the story by heart. Then I realized that I had actually never read to book. Of course I had to change ice in Wonderland is a coming of age story. It is about having to place away the fantasy of youth and grow up. The notice is not at all subtle in the story. Alice even berates herself several times for not growing up. Yet while she is coming of age while in a fantasy favorite part of the story is at the very end. Alice rehearses her "dream" to her older sister. Alice's sister than gets to rejoin the fantasy of youth for a brief time before coming back to the responsibility of e tale is simple, it is a children's story. It is not a very long book, yet the very complexities in the plot create it entertaining for all ages.

    These are two separate children’s books, but the edition I read is one of several in which they are bundled together. Besides the fact that each is only a small over 100 pages, they are conveniently bundled because they share the same lead character, Alice, and take put in related (arguably the same) alternate realities: Wonderland and the Looking-Glass World. These are worlds in which strange happenings are common put and there’s small compulsion to behave logically-- worlds in which imagination rules and reality only provides a subconscious shaping of the former book, Alice enters the alternate globe by tumbling down the rabbit hole and in the later she does so by stepping through a mirror (i.e. a looking-glass.) Each of these books follows Alice from her entry into the alternate reality, through a series of adventures, and then back to the true t much of a review is important because even though—given you are reading a review—you probably haven’t read the books yet, you will be familiar with a lot of of the characters and references from widespread appearance in pop culture. I already mentioned the tumble down the rabbit hole, as does Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) in “The Matrix.” That film also references chasing the white rabbit, as does a popular song by Grace Slick. You’ve also probably seen or heard references to the grin of the Cheshire Cat and the frenetic behavior of the Angry Hatter. “Through the Looking-Glass” features several well-known characters from English nursery rhymes (e.g. Tweedledee & Tweedledum as well as Humpty Dumpty.)It’s also not so necessary to obtain into plot because the stories are purposefully chaotic and exist in a globe of loose logic. The strings of causality are not so strong, but it’s on purpose. It’s supposed to be a strange and surreal world, and it achieves amazing success in this regard. Happenings don’t have to create sense; they just have to be imaginable. This doesn’t mean that there is no flow or transitions between the adventures in these books. There is. It’s more easily recognized in “Through the Looking-Glass” in which a android game of chess provides an underlying structure for the unfolding of events.I’d recommend everybody read these books. While I referred to them as “children’s books,” I also agree with Neil Gaiman’s point that that is a nonsense term. So one shouldn’t think one missed the boat and there is no going back.

    Carroll's stories are playful challenges to logic, identity and problems of existence. In this reading I experienced Alice's adventures as a loving, continuously changing puzzle that forces a kid (and readers) of rigid upbringing to expand e games, riddles, homophones and startling responses of characters force Alice to encounter, if not fully appreciate, a novel point of view. She also experiences awkward, frightening and near risky situations that force her to glimpse profound existential, emotional and philosophical roll introduces Alice to various values, perspectives, environmental changes, private transformations and questionable assumptions about attitudes as well as her own definition of ath is close at hand: The Red Queen's "off with her head" repetition, falling into oblivion, shrinking to almost nothing, near drowning, threat with being smoked out of Rabbit's ese skirmishes never place her in true harm's way, but she learns that danger is real. She also learns that she can look for external opportunities to support herself and can rely on her own wit and inner resources, e.g. search help, look for "poison" label, stand up for herself with the flowers, the caterpillar, the Red Queen, have internal conversations with herself about reality and walk away from impossible situations, e.g. the Tea Party and Tweedledee and Tweeledum's accelerating e with wonderful points of view characters have about herself. To the caucus race participants she's the giver of the prize. To a bird she's a serpent. To the White Rabbit's neighbors she's a monster. To the Cheshire cat she's mad. To the Red Queen she's a subservient child. To the Caterpillar she is an unknown. To the flowers she is an ungainly wilting flower.

    This review is specifically for the penguin hardcover cloth-bound classics edition (white with pink flamingos)!Naturally, the tale of Alice in Wonderland (told in two books; Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass) is definitely a fun, special tale that appeals to kids and adults alike, so of course I wanted to own a quality copy of it! I like how this edition includes both books and is hardcover with a easy cover design that looks timeless and elegant on my bookshelf. The book is full of useful notes and info in edition to having the tale; plus it includes the classic illustrations too! The paper is very high quality, the printing very attractive, and overall it was well worth the $10 I spent on it. I thought it was such an beautiful edition that I bought one for my sister, who is a collector of the different editions of this tale. I've no complaints except that I don't really care for how rough the fabric is; it's not very nice to keep in your bare hands in my opinion, and it makes a sound when it's placed on the shelf next to other cloth-bound hardcovers from the penguin classics series, so those are two things to hold in mind. I personally would have preferred either a softer fabric or for the books to have been bound in hard-backed pleather.

    Not sure why there are so a lot of reviews of wrong Alice editions, but as for the Pink ver of this book: although the book is a hard cover, the material its created off seems more plastic like and is comfortable to hold, its kind of flexible in comparison to other books. The design is attractive and the paper has an "old look" feel to it. This ver does contain the original pictures. Would definitely recommend

    It seems that danger lurks around every corner for this young protagonist. It all starts after she buys a attractive Victorian house that disturbs her sleep. Only after she finds a unique crystal ball does she start to unravel the mystery. Her dead lover comes through and warns that she has a pattern of murder in her past lives and that it will repeat in her show life unless she learns how to break the pattern. In fact, the latest time she was murdered was in her own house! Everyone she meets is a potential killer, but who is the one she needs to fear? We don't search out until the very end, in a twist that caught me by surprise.

    I love the color and the cover material. It’s not a hard cover but it’s also not paper, more like a smooth plastic (hard to describe). The detail on the outside is nice and I love the attached gold bookmark. All of the print in mine is fine and not smudged.

    Rating: 5.0/5.0First I wish to talk about this attractive edition of the book released by Barnes & Nobles. It is a purple/pink leather bound with the edges in silver color and it has lots of attractive illustrations that helps a lot in understanding the story better. The papers are thick and very durable and created of amazing quality. The book has two stories Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. I have read the first a lot of years back but it is the first time I read the second e story of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is such a delight to revisit again. It is as charming as it was when I read it first time, maybe I am loving it even more today. It is funny, colourful and sometimes dark if you think of it. I absolutely adore the curiosity of Alice regarding her surroundings and love it when she keeps talking to herself and reacting to that! The characters in both stories are so well crafted, each and every hero of them. I love the first story more and I would give it a complete five star while the second one is more of a three and half or four star but still it has its own charm as though I love Disney's anime movie and also Johnny Depp's film but I still feel that Alice in Wonderland has not been turned into a feature movie that is real to the book. I would love to see that happen in the future. This classic is one of those which is still regarded as one of the best adventure books that is enjoyed by kids and adults equally. Lewis Carroll's story is truly an immortal one.

    Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass []  2020-1-31 1:35

    These are two separate children’s books, but the edition I read is one of several in which they are bundled together. Besides the fact that each is only a small over 100 pages, they are conveniently bundled because they share the same lead character, Alice, and take put in related (arguably the same) alternate realities: Wonderland and the Looking-Glass World. These are worlds in which strange happenings are common put and there’s small compulsion to behave logically-- worlds in which imagination rules and reality only provides a subconscious shaping of the former book, Alice enters the alternate globe by tumbling down the rabbit hole and in the later she does so by stepping through a mirror (i.e. a looking-glass.) Each of these books follows Alice from her entry into the alternate reality, through a series of adventures, and then back to the true t much of a review is important because even though—given you are reading a review—you probably haven’t read the books yet, you will be familiar with a lot of of the characters and references from widespread appearance in pop culture. I already mentioned the tumble down the rabbit hole, as does Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) in “The Matrix.” That film also references chasing the white rabbit, as does a popular song by Grace Slick. You’ve also probably seen or heard references to the grin of the Cheshire Cat and the frenetic behavior of the Angry Hatter. “Through the Looking-Glass” features several well-known characters from English nursery rhymes (e.g. Tweedledee & Tweedledum as well as Humpty Dumpty.)It’s also not so necessary to obtain into plot because the stories are purposefully chaotic and exist in a globe of loose logic. The strings of causality are not so strong, but it’s on purpose. It’s supposed to be a strange and surreal world, and it achieves amazing success in this regard. Happenings don’t have to create sense; they just have to be imaginable. This doesn’t mean that there is no flow or transitions between the adventures in these books. There is. It’s more easily recognized in “Through the Looking-Glass” in which a android game of chess provides an underlying structure for the unfolding of events.I’d recommend everybody read these books. While I referred to them as “children’s books,” I also agree with Neil Gaiman’s point that that is a nonsense term. So one shouldn’t think one missed the boat and there is no going back.

    Murder Through the Looking-Glass entertains with a story that balances the suspense of a murder mystery with the suspense of romance. Supernatural Beyond Time Romantic Mystery indicates a genre for a reader. There is enough hero development for Suzanne and the men in her life to keep the interest for every reader of mysteries who is curious about the outcome.

    The Rev. Charles Ludwig Dodgson (pen name Lewis Carroll) 1832-1898 is the comic genius of children's Victorian literature and a British treasure! On July 4, 1862 he and a fellow Oxford don joined the three daughters of Dean Liddell up the Thames River on a picnic excursion. Thegirls asked Dodgson to tell them a story. The effect was the story that became Alice in Wonderland published in 1865 and Alice Through the Looking Glass published in 1872. Alice follows a rabbit down a hole as her adventures begin. Along the method she will meet the Angry Hatter, the Caterpillar, the Chesire Cat. the the Duchess, Tweedeldum and Tweeldee, the Queen of Hearts and a lot of other fabulous creatures. The two stories are beautifully illustrated by John Tenniel who was the chief artist for Punch magazine. The tales are filled with nonsense rhymes, puns, songs which will enchant and entertain you. Every literate person should read these amazing classics of childhood which can also be enjoyed by adults of any age. The Penguin Anniversary edition is beautifully designed. Enjoy!

    Everyone has seen the Disney rendition of the classic “Alice in Wonderland’ but fewer people have ever actually read the corresponding novel. It is a fascinating, beautifully written book that paints the picture of Wonderland just as well, if not better, than the screen does. Wonderland has a lot more of a topsy-turvy feel to it. It’s invigorating and unnerving, in the film it’s a fairyland, a put you would wish to be but in the book you experience the stripped-down experiences that are a small more ice comes across a hurried white rabbit, who strikes her as very ‘curious’ so she follows him and consequently falls down a rabbit hole into a mysterious world. She finds magical foods, talking doorknobs, oceans of tears, a Angry Hatter, a Mock Turtle, a Duchess, a Queen and a lifetime’s worth of magical experiences. “Alice in Wonderland” was a very well-written, world-blocking book. I would highly suggest it to all other teens out there, to catch a feeling for youth and empathy again. I hope you have fun it as much as I did, and that when you watch the Disney ver again it is with a newfound sense of wonder.

    Murder Through the Looking-Glass: Supernatural Beyond Time Romantic Mystery []  2020-2-12 19:0

    If you’re into things that are over-the-top Fresh Age-y, this might be the book for you. This book involves a lot of things that would be considered paranormal or occult. There are superstitions, spirits that come back from the dead, crystals, much talk of fate and destiny, past life regressions, crystal balls and using them to scry. But keep on, there’s also betrayal, reincarnation, telepathic dog control, hypnosis, discussion of people who fly into blind rages, and murder, and multiple time periods. Sounds a bit exhausting, doesn’t it?It really wasn’t a poor book. The story reads a bit like the old TV show, Dragnet. It has that kind of sound, at least to my inner reading ear. The writing is good; although, it is amateurish at points, where it keeps repeating things that don’t need repeating, and, of course, the introduction of more and more fortune-teller-like things. For my taste, there were too a lot of coincidences, and I was able to predict the ending by about the middle of the book. I think if the author had place less emphasis on all the Fresh Age stuff, this could have been a remarkably amazing mystery. As it stands, I’d say it was just little detail that I found odd is that the men in this book all seemed to have a penchant for light colourful slacks. It seemed strange, to me, that men in Pittsburgh, in the winter when it’s snowing and slushy, still wore white and cream slacks. Not once, but repeatedly, and multiple men. So glad I don’t need to with laundry for those guys. For the scenes in Hawaii (Yes, the book takes you to Hawaii, and I loved the hero of Sam.), it created excellent sense for anyone, man or woman, to wear white pants. It’s the Pittsburgh setting that doesn't seem fitting for that kind of attire in final take on this book is that it tried to take on too much. With less emphasis on the occult items and all the side stories, and more on the mystery, this book could easily have garnered a five star rating.I received this book for through an offering the author posted on Facebook. I thank her for her generosity, but it had no result on this review. All opinions in this review express my real and honest reactions to reading this book.

    The premise of this book was very interesting to me: a murder mystery with a twist, an old Victorian house, ghosts and past lives! It was a fun read, though the pace did go a bit slowly at times when focusing on info of crystal ball scrying, etc. If you were interested in the practices of crystal ball scrying, plus wish a fun story, this book would be a excellent fit for you.

    UPDATE - I ultimately ended up returning this as I had purchased it as a bonus and the book is advertised as having incredible, original artwork. You would need a microscope to view the little illustrations. I was extremely disappointed though I doI blame myself; I guess I was not paying attention to size. Just note that this edition is barely bigger than my hand. This is more or less a pocket sized volume. The illustrations are REALLY little as is the book itself. I had ordered for a Christmas bonus for someone else and was really shocked and disappointed to see it was not a regular sized book. The reviews were all so high and no one mentioned or complained about the book being so tiny.

    Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass (Bantam Classics) []  2019-12-25 18:32

    As a child I enjoyed watching all of the Alice in Wonderland films so I was excited to read this book. Even though reading isn't one of my favorite things to do I was still interested when I got the assignment to read this book for class. Because I watched all three Alice in Wonderland movies, I thought I knew exactly what to expect from the book. But reading Lewis Carroll's, Alice in Wonderland is actually very various compared to the movies. Every chapter I was surprised with fresh information. The most latest film spin on Alice in Wonderland featured a stage where Alice killed the Jabberwocky, a part that was chop from the first two movies but was a major stage told by a poem in the book. A lot of smaller details, like little characters, were left out of the films too so in all reading the book is a better option for anyone especially if you're looking to obtain all the info on Alice and her journey. For those less interested in reading I don't recommend this book. Even though it's filled with awesome scenes and characters, it can sometimes be overwhelming and even boring. Alice in Wonderland is jam packed with over forty characters that are quickly introduced, some that are hard to understand and obtain to know. Also the setting alters rapidly and isn't always a swift change which can be frustrating because it's difficult to follow. Now if you're the type of person who enjoys amazing detail and attractive scenery then you'll love the vast surroundings that Carroll made in wonderland but you also must be up for a sort of challenge. As a fifteen year old reading this book it was always interesting, but I wasn't always intrigued enough to wish to read on. I would say that this book is most appropriate for readers around the age of twelve. Lewis Carroll stylistically wrote Alice in Wonderland at a level simple enough for middle schoolers but in for them to finish the book I'd say that they'd have to be interested enough to read it all. With all the crazy obstacles Alice is facing a person with an begin mind would probably continue to read on. Also because Alice is younger it might be easier for kids to relate and connect with her. If you've seen the Alice in Wonderland films and enjoyed them then I definitely recommend reading this book. You'll be surprised by the amount of detail left out by the movies. This book is truly awesome and I'm sure you won't regret adding it into your library.

    Murder Through the Looking-Glass: Supernatural Beyond Time Romantic Mystery []  2020-2-12 19:0

    After reading the plot of this book, it seemed like it would be an interesting story. The story is about a woman, Suzanne, a therapist, who recently moved into an older Victorian house. For the months that she’s lived in the house, she has had problem sleeping. Then, after going shopping with a friend, she’s drawn to a crystal ball, to use for scrying.When using the ball for the first time, she sees Ted, but the story doesn’t tell you who he is, but he’s passed away. In the vision, Ted tells her she’s in danger. That something that happens in her passed lives is set to repeat. In her passed lives, she’s murdered or is a murderer. But he tells her it’s not her time to die yet. And she has to figure out the secrets of her passed lives, in to survive her current zanne uses the crystal to test and piece together her passed lives. Sometimes she has no luck in finding anything helpful. It makes you ask the question, ‘why doesn’t she go to the library, and research the history her house?’ It would create it easier and quicker. But I guess that wasn’t what the author had intended.I found this story enjoyable. Although at times it seemed that it kept dragging on. But the story still held my attention. The latest few chapters I simply couldn’t stop reading. And I wasn’t at all expecting how the ending would be. It was certainly a surprise to search out where the danger she was facing came from. I would recommend this story, as I enjoyed it a amazing deal. I will definitely be checking out other story’s by Cathy Corn.

    This really is a amazing copy. It’s difficult, on Amazon, to select a copy of a classic. I was looking for one with print huge enough to attract an eight-year-old and with the classic Tenniel illustrations. Amazon would present a cover, and I would on “Look inside,” and they would present something inside a various cover, so I feel lucky to have found this copy. It’s hard back, and while the print is not really large, it’s the biggest I can hope for, and kids can grow to with it. Further, it really does have the Tenniel illustrations. It is beautiful.

    Through the Looking-Glass (The fantastic sequel to Alice in Wonderland!) []  2020-2-2 3:22

    This Kindle edition is an EXCELLENT choice - 5 stars. 5 stars is also for the original book. I sampled a lot of Alice in Wonderland and all the Through the Looking Glass books I could search available (at Amazon and Gutenberg org - though today I explore some I missed). I believe I found that the best available editions, if you wish both, are:The BLTC at 1.79 Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (BLTC Press Edition) - this edition is very well formatted with all the Tenniel illustrations that I recall and is the one I purchased e Bompacrazy at .99 Alice in Wonderland (Illustrated) or Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (Illustrated) (these two appear to be exactly the same from the samples as both have the 'blotted out' picture of the Drink Me tag): this is almost as amazing a choice, though not quite as well formatted. The sample has a Rackham illustration (and there may be more) as well as the a lot of Tenniel, though, which is a I discovered the Master Edition The Complete Alice in Wonderland (Kindle Master Editions) which I missed before (likely because I was concentrating on Through the Looking Glass, which has far fewer editions, and then pursuing the 'matching' Alice in Wonderlands). Today the is .89 and I am going to it. It is at least as well formatted as the BLTC (based on the sample) and has even more Alice writings (beyond Wonderland and Looking Glass) as well as essays and historical information and other 'add-ons'. He has all the illustrations from Tenniel and extra ones from Holliday and Carroll (I think he should add Rackham's, too).The Gutenberg org versions - lacked the improved linking and formatting, but there are different illustrated editions; may be worth it to you if .99 is too much or you are looking for something other than Tenniel.I did see a kindle ver of an 'Original First Edition' Alice which appears to be illustrated by Arthur Rackham - in case you are looking for that one instead of the better known John Tenniel version. Alice In Wonderland - Original First Edition Ver Published For Kindle - Lewis Carroll That edition has no Tenniel illustrations in the sample; also the text seems to be abridged (or just maybe an earlier version?) and the formatting is poor. Note that the picture of Alice looking at the Cheshire Cat in a tree that appears on this linked product page is not the cover that appears on the downloaded sample; the cover that does appear is of Alice walking with the Duchess and looks like this kindle book: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass - now for more typical Amazon mis-linked craziness, this latter edition has Tenniel illustrations, but beware that they are very little thumbnails and enlarge to very not good quality. I do not recommend either of these editions. The Rackham is available at Gutenberg for a lot of others have said, the primary Kindle edition is a very not good choice, and most others also lack the illustrations. Thank goodness for Through the Looking Glass, it was the chess board appearing in the BLTC sample (and not in the BompaCrazy sample) that finalized my choice in their favor (before finding the Master). Here are the BLTC and BompaCrazy links:Through the Looking Glass - BLTCThrough the Looking Glass (Illustrated) - BompaCrazyI hope this review helps you search your best choice far more quickly than I did.

Sadly the delivery was not charming, as the book was left loose and unprotected in a box to rattle around, leaving it slightly battered and used looking.

    I saw from reviews that the other "Through the Looking Glass" kindle ver was incomplete. It didn't contain poems or drawings. Well I don't know why anyone would obtain that ver instead of this one. This ver is and it is complete with all poems and pictures. It is all in English, even though part of the title is in French. I really enjoyed the story. I read Alice's Adventures in Wonderland before reading this. The kindle ver I read of that book did not contain the pictures, so it was really nice to see all of the original drawings in Through the Looking Glass.I liked both books, but this one was more fun - I enjoyed following along with the Chess Android game that is played throughout the whole book.

    While "Looking Glass" has been available to readers for a lot of years, this edition has the distinct advantage of superb and colourful illustrations. These picture-izations of things taking put in the story add immensely to the joy and fun of the whole work of fantasy/satire. I was delighted to get a copy! It's just the sort of book to share with a young reader, or to read aloud while showing the illustrations. The artist has done a true work of comic and active art with skill and genius, to accompany Lewis Carroll's awesome tale of Alice and her Looking Glass world.

    Alice returns to yet another madcapped adventure. As Alice plays around with her kittens, Snowdrop and Kitty, she unwittingly steps through the mirror into another globe reminiscent of Wonderland. Along with Alice, we meet the marvelous characters of the Red Queen, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the White Queen, Humpty Dumpty, a lion, a unicorn and the White Knight. Through the Looking Glass is interspersed with oddly amusing poems like the Jabberwocky, The Walrus and the Carpenter, The White Knight’s Song and Hush-a-by lady. But the grandest of all has to be Lewis Caroll’s final poem…“A boat, beneath a sunny sky…”In a Wonderland they lie,Dreaming as the days go by,Dreaming as the summers die:Ever drifting down the stream --Lingering in the golden gleam --Life what is it but a dream?

    I really like the Alice books and I'm always on the lookout for an unusual edition. This one is so pretty. Every page has a Tenniel border around it. Some borders have the oysters, Carpenter, Walrus, assorted shells and seaweed. Others contain Tweedledum, Tweedledee, umbrellas, the rattle, vorpal sword and the Jabberwocky. It is an unabridged version. The hardcover ver is glossy, and the picture on front is really from Alice In Wonderland (Alice's with the King & Queen of Hearts) and not Through the Looking Glass. It is published by DSI (Digital Scanning, Inc). On the page adjacent to the cover page, it says that "DSI is committed to bringing a lot of traditional and small known books back to life, retaining the look and feel of the original work". So perhaps someone who published this book long ago created the incorrect choice for the cover. Besides that one little flaw, it is a lovely edition.

    Through the Looking-Glass (The fantastic sequel to Alice in Wonderland!) []  2020-2-2 3:22

    A young girl, named Alice, falls asleep and dreams of exploring the alternate globe inside the mirror (or on the other side of the looking-glass). This is largely a continuation of the fantastical sorts of adventures she had in the first volume (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland), though this time a lot of things are reversed (or in mirror image) and her adventures are constructed within the framework of a life-sized chess board. Most of the poetry I had remembered from my childhood in connection with Alice was in this volume, and I was surprised to find, upon rereading, the harsh and sometimes sinister connotations they relayed that I had not grasped when I was younger and/or perhaps had only heard out of context previously. Interesting read with attractive flowing prose and verse. This Puffin Classics edition included illustrations by John Tenniel. I loved the illustrations!

    Through the Looking-Glass (The fantastic sequel to Alice in Wonderland!) []  2020-2-2 3:22

    One of the first books I bought on Kindle was the ver of Alice in Wonderland, which has no Alice herself says, 'what is the use of a book without pictures or conversations?Without the pictures it is simply not the same reading cently, I borrowed the Annotated Alice from the library and read both Alice books that way, with the full text of both books, the Tenniel pictures, and annotations, including the origins of different nursery rhymes, and explaining different references. Although you could read Alice without this, all this does considerably enhance the reading experience.I also own a ver of Aiw by Sterling Classics, which has outstanding color illustration by Robert Ingpen, with art on every page turn which would be a talking point on any bookshelf, and one you would love to present off to visitors. I originally bought this as a gift, but I am very reluctant to part with , in searching around for an illustrated ver you can read on Kindle, I don't think it's possible to do better than the BLTC ver of ATTLG, which this is. It has all the Tenniel pictures. In fact the grayscale on the Kindle gives them an additional dimension in shading, that I did not see on the paperback ver which was very black and white in look. I consider this my best Kindle in terms of quality and useability and pictures on Amazon so far.With Alice, with the dozens of monsters some unfamiliar and hence difficult to imagine, a picture does paint a thousand words. What does a jabberwocky or a gryphon look like?Unfortunately, as all reviews of every ver are lumped into each review, it makes it very difficult to assess the merits of a particular edition. Amazon needs to separate these out to support the are the links:Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (BLTC Press Edition) Original story, complete with attractive tenniel grayscale pictures, for $1.99The Annotated Alice: The Definitive Edition Both stories complete, with Tenniel picures, and ice's Adventures in Wonderland (Sterling Illustrated Classics) Original story plus oustanding illustrations by Robert ice's Adventures in Wonderland The Kindle ver with no pictures.If you wish the complete collection of Lewis Carroll, I recommend the Complete Works of Lewis Carroll (Illustrated)which has both Alice Books with pictures.If you wish to read illustrated books on Kindle I highly recommend this publisher. Just place BLTC Press in Amazon find bar, to find out their other titles a lot of are well known titles, judging from other well formatted, and some of which are illustrated.I hope you found this helpful, and I think you will love it.

    Through the Looking-Glass (The fantastic sequel to Alice in Wonderland!) []  2020-2-2 3:22

    The famous cartoon that amalgamates Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass" is a disservice for the books' abilities to stand as two independent stories. I read both of them to my kids at bedtime recently and I enjoyed the disassembled stories much more than the cartoon. As with most books adapted to film, there is so much depth that is lost in the adaptation.I have to be honest, though, that reading this book challenged my oral reading abilities. Its one thing to read a text such as this to yourself, it is another matter entirely to have to vocalize some of the nonsensical verbiage to others. My suggestion to others would be, if opportunity exists, read it to yourself before you read it to someone else. A lot of of the words in the text do not flow naturally off the tongue (or at least not mine).

    Through the Looking-Glass (The fantastic sequel to Alice in Wonderland!) []  2020-2-2 3:22

    This review is exclusively for the $1.99 Kindle ver of Lewis Carroll's "Through the Looking Glass".Unlike some of the other reviewers, I did not more than one Kindle version, as I had the benefit of their reviews. But I have to agree with them that for 2 bucks, you cannot go wrong by getting this edition. It is excellent for reading, and it contains all the original Sir John Tenniel illustrations, unspoiled by colorization. Not one word in the poetry flies out of put when columns or fonts are changed. It is quite a amazing ver for reading under a tree by a stream on a warm summer's day (Oops! Wrong story).Since that is the use to which 95% on you will place this edition, I give it five stars. But, for my unique uses, which is quoting Carroll in comments on the Bible, and Graduate School papers, this edition has one flaw. Regardless of how a lot of tricks you try, you cannot explore how this text is mapped to a particular paper copy text, which has page numbers. Scholarly citation rules have not cought up with the electronic book reader is is a very nicely converted book.

    I love the color and the cover material. It’s not a hard cover but it’s also not paper, more like a smooth plastic (hard to describe). The detail on the outside is nice and I love the attached gold bookmark. All of the print in mine is fine and not smudged.

    The Rev. Charles Ludwig Dodgson (pen name Lewis Carroll) 1832-1898 is the comic genius of children's Victorian literature and a British treasure! On July 4, 1862 he and a fellow Oxford don joined the three daughters of Dean Liddell up the Thames River on a picnic excursion. Thegirls asked Dodgson to tell them a story. The effect was the story that became Alice in Wonderland published in 1865 and Alice Through the Looking Glass published in 1872. Alice follows a rabbit down a hole as her adventures begin. Along the method she will meet the Angry Hatter, the Caterpillar, the Chesire Cat. the the Duchess, Tweedeldum and Tweeldee, the Queen of Hearts and a lot of other fabulous creatures. The two stories are beautifully illustrated by John Tenniel who was the chief artist for Punch magazine. The tales are filled with nonsense rhymes, puns, songs which will enchant and entertain you. Every literate person should read these amazing classics of childhood which can also be enjoyed by adults of any age. The Penguin Anniversary edition is beautifully designed. Enjoy!

    This book delivers an amazing story line as far as bondage goes. My favorite part of this book was the shoe foot fetish part of the story. But I will not spoil this one, because if you read it you'll know why. But other than that. It's just delicious in my opinion.

    UPDATE - I ultimately ended up returning this as I had purchased it as a bonus and the book is advertised as having incredible, original artwork. You would need a microscope to view the little illustrations. I was extremely disappointed though I doI blame myself; I guess I was not paying attention to size. Just note that this edition is barely bigger than my hand. This is more or less a pocket sized volume. The illustrations are REALLY little as is the book itself. I had ordered for a Christmas bonus for someone else and was really shocked and disappointed to see it was not a regular sized book. The reviews were all so high and no one mentioned or complained about the book being so tiny.

    Not sure why there are so a lot of reviews of wrong Alice editions, but as for the Pink ver of this book: although the book is a hard cover, the material its created off seems more plastic like and is comfortable to hold, its kind of flexible in comparison to other books. The design is attractive and the paper has an "old look" feel to it. This ver does contain the original pictures. Would definitely recommend

    A lot of the other reviewers gave it negative stars for the size of the book, but this actually created me drawn to it more. When i received it, the book itself was actually a bit bigger than i had expected, but it is still small, like a pocketful but i think the dainty-ness of it is what i like the most about it. Theres a sleeve over the burgundy fabric hardcover with a matching ribbon bookmark. the pages are also gold which is a really nice touch. But enough about the amazing appearance of the book ;)The story itself, i have fun and i like reading through some of the similarities and differences of the book and the disney's movie version, the beginning of the book was a bit weird, with the method Alice talks and when she's talking to herself. But overall, i've always loved Alice in Wonderland and its amazing to read the original where the movie had derived from.I think its a nice small keepsake book, would be amazing for younger teens/adults (since the print is smaller, older people might have a harder time reading it) i'm in my early 20's and the size of the print doesn't bother me at all.

    Fifty Shades of Alice Through the Looking Glass: 50 Shades of Alice Trilogy []  2020-1-18 20:33

    In case you're not sure ~ This is EROTICA and not meant for is is the second in a series. Although this is a amazing follow-up to the first story to Fifty Shades of Alice in Wonderland, I didn't have fun it as much as the first.I enjoyed how it started, but at around Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, I was bored. Don't obtain me wrong, there's sexy scenes, the writing style is enjoyable, but I think I kept comparing it to the first story, which isn't fair. I couldn't pinpoint where I wandered off, except to say that perhaps this one felt, um, rushed, obligated, distracted or forced? Anyway... I definitely recommend the first book and this one is written in the same style. It does pick up, but I never actually felt what I felt with the first story. I wavered on my review from okay to I like it, and went with I like it because, well I have every intention of re-reading it, especially once I have the latest installment of the trilogy and see how it fares l in all, I would say read it ~ Especially if you read the first installment and enjoyed that, and if you haven't read the first one, I do recommend buying that one, that is a GEM! There is a third installment ~ not sure when that's coming out, but I'll be buying that as soon as it's available ~ That's how much I enjoyed the first story.

    Some may argue that this is not a romance. I would argue very differently. There is a heroine and a character (even if we don't see a whole lot of him). The couple must overcome an obstacle in to be together (Alice's closed-mindedness). And of course there must be a HEA - and is there ever!!Alice's adventure begins with her favorite white rabbit again and she is instantly thrust into a fresh and exciting world. The book (which is quite glad to be an ebook instead of a regular book you might trip over if it happened to be lying on the floor) is filled with unbelievable puns and even occasionally makes a joke at its own expense. Yes, the book knows it's a book. The style of writing is priceless and so very much fun to read. Alice must learn to be more begin minded about people before she can become a Queen and return home.We see a few of our favorite characters: Humpty Dumpty, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, and a very unusual ver of the Jabberwocky - all presented with their own very special twist. If you haven't read this series, I would definitely tell you to add it to your "must read' list. The only downfall is there was supposed to be a third book that has not yet been released.

    This really is a amazing copy. It’s difficult, on Amazon, to select a copy of a classic. I was looking for one with print huge enough to attract an eight-year-old and with the classic Tenniel illustrations. Amazon would present a cover, and I would on “Look inside,” and they would present something inside a various cover, so I feel lucky to have found this copy. It’s hard back, and while the print is not really large, it’s the biggest I can hope for, and kids can grow to with it. Further, it really does have the Tenniel illustrations. It is beautiful.

    This review is specifically for the penguin hardcover cloth-bound classics edition (white with pink flamingos)!Naturally, the tale of Alice in Wonderland (told in two books; Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass) is definitely a fun, special tale that appeals to kids and adults alike, so of course I wanted to own a quality copy of it! I like how this edition includes both books and is hardcover with a easy cover design that looks timeless and elegant on my bookshelf. The book is full of useful notes and info in edition to having the tale; plus it includes the classic illustrations too! The paper is very high quality, the printing very attractive, and overall it was well worth the $10 I spent on it. I thought it was such an beautiful edition that I bought one for my sister, who is a collector of the different editions of this tale. I've no complaints except that I don't really care for how rough the fabric is; it's not very nice to keep in your bare hands in my opinion, and it makes a sound when it's placed on the shelf next to other cloth-bound hardcovers from the penguin classics series, so those are two things to hold in mind. I personally would have preferred either a softer fabric or for the books to have been bound in hard-backed pleather.
