    868. Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland, Lewis Carroll

    Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson over the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It tells of a girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as with children. It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre. Its narrative course and structure, characters and imagery have been enormously influential in both popular culture and literature, especially in the fantasy genre.

    "Good gracious!" said Alice, "I do believe I'm inside a review!"

    She turned to the Hatter and the March Hare.

    "Well, let me see. Here is the title, and here is the date I read it. That must be today. Now I need to explain the plot and the overall point."

    "There is no plot," said the March Hare disagreeably.

    "And there is no point," agreed the Hatter.

    He poured a little hot tea on the Dormouse's nose, making it wake with a start.

    "Good gracious!" said Alice, "I do believe I'm inside a review!"

    She turned to the Hatter and the March Hare.

    "Well, let me see. Here is the title, and here is the date I read it. That must be today. Now I need to explain the plot and the overall point."

    "There is no plot," said the March Hare disagreeably.

    "And there is no point," agreed the Hatter.

    He poured a little hot tea on the Dormouse's nose, making it wake with a start.

    "The book breaks new ground," it said rapidly in a high, sing-song voice. "Intentionally eluding easy assignment to any traditional category, it anticipates the twentieth century's fascination with the relationship between the signifier and the signified, and wittily deconstructs the primacy of meaning and the rationality of thought." Then it went back to sleep again, and began to snore gently.

    "Whatever did that mean?" asked Alice, surprised.

    "Why is a Derrida like a derrière?" replied the Hatter.

    "I don't know," said Alice.

    "I don't know either," said the Hatter triumphantly.

    "It would be

    ", said Alice, in the grown-up tone she had sometimes heard her sister use, "It would be

    for you to explain what the book is about, so that I could put that in my review."

    "It would be

    ," said the Hatter, "to expect hot premarital sex in a Stephenie Meyer novel. But don't imagine you'll find any."

    Alice couldn't think of anything to reply to this, so she turned away without another word. When she was almost out of earshot, she thought she heard the Hatter shout something after her that might have been "Foucault!"

    Well, also Through the Looking Glass. But THAT’S PRACTICALLY THE SECOND HALF OF THE SAME BOOK. (And other examples of my inability to make decisions or commit in any way to anything.)

    I currently have 18 copies of this book. I’ve attempted to read it at least annually for the past three years. And by “annually,” I mean I last revisited this book about nine months ago.

    But hey, it was a different year then, technically speaking.

    How do I even review this? I don’t know where to begin. (Just a heads up that my obsessive personality is going to become verrrrry clear as this review progresses. I’m not proud. This is who I am, you guys. I was a member of the fandoms of some teen pop sensation or other for nearly ten consecutive years. I’m no longer thirteen but I still need an outlet. Honestly I’m quite afraid that if I don’t have an obsession, I’ll become a drug addict. Lots of pent up energy.)

    Well, I’ll say that I always, always, always feel enveloped by this book. I have never picked this up without feeling instantly submersed in Wonderland. And it’s really my favorite place to be. It’s hard to feel unhappy when you’re in the greatest setting ever created.

    And oh yeah, there’s that. I firmly believe this is the most amazing and beautiful and confusing and curious setting of all time. It’s immersive, and it’s strange, and it’s so unique and fantastic and creative and I love it so much. I can come up with even more loosely positive adjectives if that overwhelming number didn’t suffice.

    Wonderland is my Hogwarts. While many readers pray their letters just got lost in the mail, I’m constantly hoping I’ll see a white rabbit in a waistcoat and fall down, down, down into what must be the center of the earth.

    I love Alice and her curiosity. She may also be my favorite character ever. She’s funny and sweet and childish and such a blast to read about. Her reactions to everything are so, so funny. Her curiosity always outweighs confusion and fear. I’d like to wake up one day and

    Alice. I’ll likely become one of those creeps who pays millions for plastic surgery in order to “resemble” some celebrity or other.

    On an unrelated note, anyone have millions of dollars they’re trying to get rid of?

    I’m also fiercely protective of this book. I constantly pick up retellings only to be utterly disappointed. (Like Heartless. Get

    of here with your shoddy Carroll-stealing.) DO NOT, DO NOT! GET ME STARTED ON THE TIM BURTON FILM ADAPTATION. Horrific. Alice, an adult? Alice, engaged? Alice FIGHTING THE GODDAMN JABBERWOCK?

    But I do love the original animated Disney adaptation. There’s a certain quality to the book that’s captured within that film, which I haven’t found recreated in any other retelling or use of the setting or adaptation.

    Oh, and one more thing, while I’m here.

    THIS BOOK ISN’T ABOUT DRUGS, YOU SURFACE-LEVEL INTERPRETERS OF SYMBOLISM. It’s not that easy, boo.

    In the words of BBC News, “[the drug] references may say more about the people making them than the author.”

    Lewis Carroll isn’t thought to have been a user of drugs, the Caterpillar was smoking tobacco, and the mushroom is no more magic than the various cakes Alice eats.

    Honestly, the drug reading is simple and boring. It’s such a stretch to attempt to read each character as a different substance. And scrolling through countless quasi-psychedelic GIFs to find the actual ones was irritating, too. Ah, yes, real art: taking images from a 1951 children’s film but messing with the colors and movement until it looks like nothing more than a trigger for epilepsy. Enough, Tumblr.

    Alice in Wonderland carries as much or as little significance as you want it to. It’s everything from a mindless romp in an imaginative land to a depiction of the effects of a ruthlessly authoritarian system of justice.

    Just have fun with it.

    And please, for the love of God, stop applying your weird psychedelic edits to a Disney movie.

    Note on the audiobook: This time around, I listened to the audiobook, to switch things up. Scarlett Johansson read it. I loved her funny accents and hated her overly-acted narration. A mixed bag.

    Bottom line: This is my favoritest and I doubt it will be dethroned anytime soon. Come at me, every other book.

    *Reread July 2017*

    Reread this for booktube-a-thon 2017 just because I was falling behind. Obviously I loved it (again).

    *Reread January 2016*

    Read for the school this time and I read the Puffin In Bloom edition. I loved the new illustrations!

    Today, reading a friend’s

    on

    , I searched the garden shed for an edition of Alice in Wonderland illustrated by

    which I read ages ago, to have another look at Zwerger’s marvellous illustrations. Sadly enough it has disappeared – I must have lent out my copy to a friend. So, heading for a revisit in the near future hoping for the book to return, in the meantime I cannot resist sharing some of Lisbeth Zwerger’s illustrations which I add to the book appetizer I wrote because a friend asked me so long ago.

    Op een slaapverwekkende warme zomerdag zit Alice zich naast haar lezende zus aan de waterkant onnoemelijk te vervelen. Een vestimentair piekfijn uitgedost wit Konijn dat gehaast voorbijsnelt, prikkelt haar nieuwsgierigheid. Ze gaat het achterna en tuimelt zo via een schier eindeloze konijnenpijp onverhoeds in Wonderland, een magische wereld bevolkt met sprekende dieren. Naast het voeren van absurde conversaties met de vreemdsoortige wezens, heeft ze plots haar handen vol met een baby die eigenlijk een big blijkt te zijn. Bovendien krimpt of groeit Alice de hele tijd door in een halsbrekend tempo als ze aan koekjes of paddenstoelen knabbelt!

    Carroll schreef dit fantasievolle, fascinerende sprookje over een avontuurlijk klein meisje dat alert en spitsvondig omgaat met onalledaagse gebeurtenissen voor het tienjarige dochtertje van een vriend. Van dit speelse, ietwat griezelige en surrealistische verhaal las ik een heel mooie, door Lisbeth Zwerger prachtig geïllustreerde uitgave, die ik graag nog eens zou herlezen als de vriend aan wie ik ze uitleende er ooit aan zou denken ze terug te bezorgen. In de tussentijd is er nog altijd de

    van

    die zich door het verhaal liet inspireren. Of ik zou het, nu ik groot ben, in het Engels kunnen lezen. Of zou ik dan terug krimpen?

    This took me a long time to get through...I found it sometimes tedious to be quite honest. Sorry. I guess I just don't love the nonsensical fun of this as much as everyone else seems to love it.

    I enjoyed the pictures and I really liked this edition and I enjoyed it well enough, but as I said, I just don't love it as much as a lot of others do.

    . Alice falls down the rabbit hole and into Wonderland - a place wholly unexpected, trivial and unforgettable. She meets several good friends (like the White Rabbit and the Cheshire Cat) and a few enemies (The Red Queen) as she stumbles her way through.

    Reading this book for the first time as an adult leaves me

    I'm now worrying whether

    (I briefly reread some of my faves - HP, Winnie the Pooh and Charlotte's Web - and have concluded it's not me, just that book).

    Alice (and everyone else in this novel) constantly contradicts themselves and each other. The whole thing is utter nonsense! Though, there are a few good puns:

    Ah well. I will try it again some day just to see if

    on the day I read it and I plan to read this to my future-kids to see if their youth will allow them to interpret this more positively. After all, if Ronan Lynch from [Book: The Raven Boys] loves it then I will force myself too.

    Read by Alan Bennett - and he was a pretty good narrator too. But as much as l I tried to listen to this on audiobook, the text was just tooo confusing. I kept losing track of the story. I gave up and decided to read it instead. That was a good choice - lots of fun pictures!
