Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Other Stories - Lewis Carroll

Curiouser and curiouser! 

 

Lewis Carroll

 

July 4, 1862: Charles Dodgson (a.k.a. Lewis Carroll) took three young sisters on a boating trip and told them a story about a girl who went down a rabbit hole. The tale became the basis for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - Lewis Carroll,John Tenniel

Yes I'm 38 years old and just now reading this book for the first time. I'm sure there are hundreds of books I didn't read as a kid that I probably should have. As for this one, it was very enjoyable. I probably would've loved it as a kid just for it being so strange and weird, but as an adult, I love most how ironic it is. The word play, the whacky hijinks, Alice's existential crisis, and just watching Alice try to figure out how to Escape the Room she first lands in was a lot of fun. I never saw the entirety of the Disney movie either, just bits and pieces. I've only seen the Johnny Depp movie, which is post-Alice in Wonderland, in full. Why I did that, I don't know. I must've been feeling in need of punishment for some transgression at the time. 

 

It was fun reading a classic like this, which I've absorbed a lot of through pop culture references, but have no real clue what to expect of the actual book. It was fun, easy to read, and certainly something that both children and adults can get something out of.

Month in Review: February
Guapa - Saleem Haddad,Andreas Diesel
The Semester of Our Discontent - Cynthia Kuhn
Lagoon - Nnedi Okorafor
On the Edge of Gone - Corinne Duyvis
Young Blood - Stephanie von Harrach,Sifiso Mzobe
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - Lewis Carroll
Der Susan-Effekt - Peter Urban-Halle,Peter Høeg

February brought grim winter weather and some solid novel reading, helped along by slow times at work. I was also ill for a week and didn't get much of anything done, so progress on my bigger reads stalled. Adorno and Le Guin are still stuck in my Currently Reading queue, there's some reviews I need to catch up on, but overall I'm quite happy with my first full month on BookLikes. 

 

 

4.5 star reads: 

 

Saleem Haddad: Guapa

Corinne Duyvis: On the Edge of Gone

 

4 star reads: 

 

Nnedi Okorafor: Lagoon

Lewis Carroll: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

 

2.5 star reads: 

 

Cynthia Kuhn: The Semester of Our Discontent

Sifiso Mzobe: Young Blood

Peter Høeg: Der Susan-Effekt

 

 

Looks like 2.5 stars are my go-to rating when I didn't quite enjoy a book but didn't hate it either. And I need to write more reviews of novels I do enjoy!

Alices Adventures in Wonderland review
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - Lewis Carroll

Another one of Lewis Carroll's masterpieces, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is a great book for the 4th grade student and older. I would have this in my classroom library for older grades for independent reading. This story highlights the importance of creativity, imagination, and a little bit of nonsense. The guided reading level is V and the Lexile level is 890L.
