Review: Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass

Happy throwback Thursday! Today I’m going to be looking back at Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.

I read Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland a few years ago, but it wasn’t until recently that I read Through the Looking Glass. Both stories really compliment one another, and should definitely be read.

Alice in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by: Lewis Carroll: It’s the tale of a young girl named Alice, who falls into a world in which she describes it as Wonderland. Each chapter she is met with a new creature and a new adventure with them. The children’s book is filled with a lot of questions about life, and about who you are, but as well it is filled with lots of adventures to keep the reader reading. Sometimes it just doesn’t make sense what is going on, but that’s the love and curiosity of Wonderland.

Through the Looking Glass by: Lewis Carroll: Alice has spent time in Wonderland, but now she finds herself in the world of the Looking Glass and things are just as quirky. Here she meets a new array of characters who, just like in Wonderland teach her new things and give her new understandings. In this novel we are filled with new characters that stretch beyond the imagination. The creativity and thought that went into Alice’s new world was thought provoking and fun to read. The plots didn’t need to make sense because they were so filled with a sense of wonder and magic, chapter after chapter, story after story. The characters were wacky, yet very enjoyable; they each definitely have their own personality and voice. This is definitely worth the read as it enters an alter reality that is engaging and delightful.

  1. Alice in Wonderland is probably my all-time favourite children’s book so it’s great to see a review for it on your blog. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a review for this book before, it’s just always been something I’ve owned, something I’ve read and something other people have read as well.
    I definitely agree with your review and everything you said about the wonder and magic and wackiness in each page. I feel like I’m going to have to re-read this book again soon! Great review. 🙂

    1. That’s kinda why I wrote a review for it plus I like to review for everything I read, so I’ve been planning on reading things on Goodreads that I have marked as read but haven’t reviewed, but I know that may take some time ha!
      Thank you, it’s definitely fun to read or reread! 🙂
