Bu kitap beni gerçekten mutlu etti. Ben türe göre beş yıldız derecelendiriyorum: Bu civciv aydınlatılmış, boyunca. Thomas Hardy'ye "büyük edebiyat" olarak katlanmam, ama modern popüler edebiyatın mutlu ve yansıtıcı bir örneği. Protaganistin ailesi hakkında konuşmasını sevdim ve onu sevgi dolu köpekler için sevdim.
One of my faves.
This is the real Alice as photographed by Lewis Carroll back in the 1860s: I suspect Humbert Humbert would approve... Unsubstantiated rumors aside, this is a wonderful replica of the original book that Carroll hand wrote and illustrated himself as a gift for the young Alice. You can see the original manuscript at the British Library which has been a highlight of all my trips to London. Hopefully they've cleaned up the drool I left on the glass case when I was last there ogling it. This book is only about half the length of the eventually published version that is beloved by so many but it's clear already why everyone encouraged him to go ahead and get it out there for the general public. Most of what is here is in the final version with only a few minor changes and several significant additional adventures added. The Mad Hatter, the Duchess and the Cheshire Cat are notably absent from this early version but the general framework of the story is firmly in place. Carroll's illustrations are amateurish however they still possess a charm all their own. This book is a must for the serious Alice fan and stands completely on its own even if you haven't read the "official" version. And seriously, if you haven't read the official version then get to it my friend, NOW! If Carroll had given me a book like this when I was little, I would have let him take my picture...
Who hasn't read this book?!
I am currently taking a science class based on this book. Two NASA guys going through the science in more depth is cute if a little heavier than what I meant to do for fun in my limited spare time! I recommend this book for anyone with interest in the history of science and how we know what we know. Warning: despite the title it is not so short.
