my soul is healed when I find myself in times of troubleLewis Carroll comes to mespeaking words of wisdom just reread THIS IS MY FAVORITE BOOK.No qualifier No excuse No one of my favorites This one is it, y all.https emmareadstoomuch.wordpress.coWell, 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 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 be 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 out 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 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 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 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 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. 868

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 English Alice s Adventures in Wonderland Italiano Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, and what is the use of a book, thought Alice, without pictures or conversations Right from the beginning and from the first assertion of Alice, we understand that her thoughts encapsulate hard truth that make us smile for their hindsight Alice is a little bit bored child that decides to follow a strange rabbit to its rabbit hole However, the hole is pretty weird, there are a lot of cups, and pictures, and shelvesThe journey dream in Wonderland as a metaphor for life contains multiple keys of interpretation Probably the conflict between adults and children is the direct topic of the novel, exacerbated by the crazy Wonderland where usual rules of manners are being overturned for the custom use of wacky characters And children, chuckling and listening to the novel, several times are wondering What s going on.My daughter had a lovely time with this book And whenever she s having fun, I m having fun.Vote 9 Alice cominciava a sentirsi assai stanca di sedere sul poggetto accanto a sua sorella, senza far niente aveva una o due volte data un occhiata al libro che la sorella stava leggendo, ma non v erano n dialoghi n figure, e a che serve un libro, pens Alice, senza dialoghi n figure Gi dall incipit e dalla prima delle tante affermazioni di Alice, capiamo che racchiudono in s verit schiaccianti fanno sorridere per quanto sono palesi Alice una bimba un p annoiata che decide di seguire uno strano coniglio fin nella sua tana Ma la tana piuttosto bizzarra, ci sono tazze e quadri e scaffali eIl viaggio sogno nel mondo delle meraviglie come metafora della vita, racchiude mille interpretazioni e molteplici chiavi di lettura Quello che traspare in maniera pi evidente probabilmente il conflitto adulti bambini, esacerbato dall assurdo paese delle meraviglie, nel quale le usuali regole della buona educazione sono capovolte ad uso personalizzato dei suoi strambi personaggi E i bambini che ascoltano il racconto di Alice pi volte si chiedono sghignazzando che cosa sta succedendo Mia figlia si divertita molto E quando lei si diverte io mi diverto.Voto 8 3rd read 22 23 July 2019 Audiobook I should ve read this one soonerBut I don t want to go among mad people, Alice remarked Oh, you can t help that, said the Cat we re all mad here I m mad You re madI needed an adequate amount of nostalgia to guide me through this level of crazy Little Alice fell downthe hole, bumped her headand bruised her soulEveryone knows this story 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 bewildered, vaguely amused and mostly lost I m now worrying whether I m too old for children s stories any 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.It s all so illogical and confusing 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 No wise fish would go anywhere without a porpoise. Ah well I will try it again some day just to see if I was being a grump 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 positively After all, if Ronan Lynch from Book The Raven Boys loves it then I will force myself too.Audiobook Comments 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 Blog Instagram Twitter AIWS.
