However, for the sake of completion and satisfying my OCD tendencies Alice is a young girl who falls through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world, meeting lots of weird and peculiar characters. Well, the Mad Hatter isn't wrong. I started this book excited at the premise of reading a classic that I don't recall ever having rea "We're all mad here" I'm not going to insult your intelligence by giving a plot summary for this book as I think every person on the planet knows the premise.
I started this book excited at the premise of reading a classic that I don't recall ever having read before. Within about ten pages, my excitement had quickly waned. I've come to the conclusion that people who love this book must have fallen in love with the book as a child and therefore reading this book will trigger feelings of nostalgia and memories of childhood.

Because I simply hated every minute of reading this book. I went to bed every night and would find myself procrastinating on my phone instead of getting stuck into my book like I normally would. I don't enjoy nonsense. I like things to be logical and follow some kind of structure I guess that's the scientist in me. Of course, not everything can be logical in horror books etc, but this was like a different level of ridiculousness.
Nothing made any sense, things were all over the place. We were just jumping around everywhere and I just wanted the experience to be over. If this book wasn't so short, I think it would have became a DNF for me. Oh, and Alice literally has to the sassiest, cheekiest, rudest little girl I've ever encountered in literature. I just wanted to put her in her place for the entirety of the novel.
Nope, I hate Alice.

The only highlight for me was the illustrations, as they are simply beautiful. So I apologise to all lovers of Alice in Wonderland but it's just not for me. I'll give 1 star for the story as I just can't allow myself to give zero stars So that's 2 stars out of 5 from me! And a reading experience I'd like to forget.

I honestly dont know what to rate it bc I dont even know how I feel about this. I am bitter about certain aspects but then I wonder why am I bitter about them when I have clearly seen weirder shit in some other books? Why does this make me feel any different? If anything this book encourages the imagination to grow! I hate Alice tho Rereading t I honestly dont know what to rate it bc I dont even know how I feel about this. Rereading thanks to the irl bookclub whose one of the botm is this with the theme being 'Tea' related.
I wonder how I will feel now? View all 13 comments. I really enjoyed this, and being read by Michael York and a distinctive touch. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is popularly known to many as a children's book, and Lewis Carroll admitted to writing it for the little girls of the Dean of the college he taught at. A quote from C. Lewis, in The Three Ways of Writing For Children , "A children's story which is enjoyed only by children is a bad children's story. The good ones last, because a children's story is the best art-form for somethi I really enjoyed this, and being read by Michael York and a distinctive touch.
The good ones last, because a children's story is the best art-form for something you have to say. Lewis Carroll was also known for his photography hobby. He is also known to say that he liked little children, except little boys. The fact that many photographs have been found in his collection with little girls scantily clad, and in various poses, including on his lap, and in light of his comment, have led some to believe that the book has references to pedophilia, but since he is not alive to defend himself, I will avoid that.
The original illustrator of Alice was Sir John Tenniel, who was a famous cartoonist for Punch Magazine, a periodical famous in Victorian England for its satire writing and cartoons. Since history is my thing, I was interested in the historical analogy. It is believed it is one of two entirely different analogies of two different eras, and I can see where both make sense. The main characters in each analogy are as follows: You may have seen the Disney film or been to a play, but most everyone growing up in a Western European-based culture has had some contact in some form with Alice and her adventures.
I cannot recommend high enough actually reading Lewis Carroll's superb book written for his daughter Alice's bedtime story. There is a lovely innocence to Alice and a startling and surprising freshness to all the creatures and characters she meets. It does sometimes feel like an acid trip, but then so does Charlie a You may have seen the Disney film or been to a play, but most everyone growing up in a Western European-based culture has had some contact in some form with Alice and her adventures.
It does sometimes feel like an acid trip, but then so does Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and other high flights of fancy. The great thing here is the oblique criticism of societal norms and the evocation of youth and innocence that is unforgettable and ageless. This is yet another book that one should read to their own kids as a gift for their imagination.
I'm still not sure whether I think Lewis Carroll created a fantastic piece of fantasy or a great big pile of nonsense. I suspect it's a combination of the two.

I like some of Alice's adventures - really, how could I not? Anyone who wants to learn Icelandic. I've now finished my first pass and am going back to the beginning, copying it out and running it through the little corpus script we're developing. I've combined the texts for the two books. This lets me get a snapshot of how familiar the vocabulary is on the first page of Alice , which I've just finished [From Litli prinsinn ] [Original review, Aug 12 ] My attempt to learn Icelandic just by reading continues with the Icelandic translation of Alice in Wonderland , another of my favourite books.
This lets me get a snapshot of how familiar the vocabulary is on the first page of Alice , which I've just finished copying out: As you can see, a lot of words are in red, meaning I haven't seen them before. But many are in black, which means that I've seen them more than five times and so probably know them. I'm doing well enough that I'm able to get along and start guessing things. Here's what I can make of the first paragraph: One time or twice had she? Once again, I think that deep learning theory may help me understand what's going on.
First, let's look at a naive argument which claims to demonstrate that copying out text can't teach you anything, and see what's wrong with it. If you haven't tried it yourself, you might think that copying is a purely mechanical operation; you look at each character in turn and hit the appropriate key after each one. That's how a laptop will copy a file. But I am not a laptop. In actual fact, I look at the text on the page that's sitting in front of me and try to remember a small piece of it; then I divert my attention to the editor window and try to type out what I can remember.
If I didn't understand the words at all, this might end up being similar to what the file-copying routine is doing. But I do understand Icelandic to some degree, and the better I understand it the longer the chunk is that I can remember. If I'm copying a long word I've not seen before, I may only be able to hold a few letters at a time in my memory, and I'll need to look at the word two or three times to copy it out. But at the other extreme, if I'm copying a short sentence where all the words are already familiar to me, I may be able to hold the complete sentence in my memory and then write it down without looking at the text again.
Since I'm lazy and want to copy as quickly as I can, my mind is tricked into understanding longer and longer chunks of text. The curious thing is that this is pretty exactly much what an autoencoder does; it's a neural net that's trained on data where the output is the same as the input.
If neural nets had a global view of what they were trying to learn, the autoencoder could see that all it needs to do is copy the input one character at a time. But in fact, the neural net learns in a way similar to the way people learn, by making little incremental adjustments in the direction of increased efficiency. They can never make the big jump to the minimal solution; instead, they figure out ways to compress the input into larger chunks. This is what makes autoencoders useful. Maybe those dumb old rote-learning methods weren't actually so dumb?

Jan 15, Natalie Vellacott rated it it was amazing Shelves: As Alice slips into a dream, she finds herself chasing after a white rabbit with a waist coat and pocket watch. Apparently, he is late for something important. He heads down a rabbit hole, nothing particularly odd about that, but as Alice follows, she falls into a world very different from her own. A world with Cheshire cats, mad-hatters, packs of living playing cards, and an array of characters which will make Alice's head spin as she manoeuvres cautiously through Wonderland.
As children, the Disney movie was always a favourite; our grandparents collected them for us and we never got bored of Alice in Wonderland.

Intended for young readers but enjoyed equally by adults, the fantastic tale transformed children's literature, liberating it from didactic constraints.
