Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
37 Installments—Entirely free
A lazy afternoon by the water melts away into a wild adventure when young Alice chases a mysterious White Rabbit straight into Wonderland. Created as a gift to one of his favorite young fans, Alice Liddell, this tale is Carroll's signature masterpiece of imaginative nonsense and trickery. Filled with characters and scenes that grow ever "curiouser and curiouser," this is a dazzling romp for young and old alike, as vivid and ethereal as only the best of dreams can be.

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, a.k.a. Lewis Carroll (1832-1898) was a magician of wordplay and imagination. Not only a writer, he was a gifted mathematician, logician, and a pioneering expert in the field of photography. Seeming at times to hail from one of the whimsical lands of his own making, Carroll led a charmed existence filled with friendships and admiration. An aura of glamour and mystery continues to surround Carroll's legend, as his work and identity are continual subjects of debate to this day. Although he is best known for his masterpiece, Alice in Wonderland, Carroll's other novels and poems, among them Through the Looking Glass, Jabberwocky, Sylvie and Bruno, and The Hunting of the Snark, offer timeless delight to readers of all ages.Back to top
Opening Lines (Experimental)
So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.

I am biased...this is not my first time reading Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. I will say it was my guy's first time reading Alice and he adored it. Also this was a great way to read said text and discuss it. So recommended!

More than a little crazy
I found this book very hard to reread as an adult. If it were written today the author would surely be accused of using drugs as they wrote it. It's more than a bit schizophrenic.

very, um, interesting...
Hm. This is one book that is really disturbing. What sort of person was Lewis Carrol?

A Necessary Read
To be culturally literate, you need to read at least some of the works by Lewis Carroll.

No IAM today!
This is one of the basic books in the Western canon simply because it works on so many different levels for BOTH of our cultures, Art and Science. Nary an educated person in our society can avoid the literary charm and Latin humor of Alice's adventures nor miss the fabulous mathematical twists and turns.
