Alicia en el País de las Maravillas by Lewis Carroll



“I can’t explain myself, I’m afraid, sir,’ said Alice, ‘because I’m not myself, you see.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures In Wonderland

Hi Everyone!

I am here with a new book review I´ve spent so many days without Wi-Fi so that has been the principal reason why I've not published for several days. But I am here with a review of one of my favorite books. This time is the turn of Alice's Adventures In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. As some of you probably already know I am a huge fan of Fantasy is my favorite literary genre so I enjoy this book so much. 

The first thing I need to say is that I have read several times before, but this is the first time I read my own paperback. This was a gift of my friend Natasha (momo) and she gave me this wonderful Spanish edition as a gift and I feel so happy because this gift was so amazing. Recently I read this book and I needed to share with you my feelings about this amazing book.ヽ(o^▽^o)ノ

About this book

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is a work of children's literature by the English mathematician and author, the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, written under the pseudonym, Lewis Carroll. It tells the story of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit-hole into a fantasy realm populated by grotesque figures like talking playing cards and anthropomorphic creatures. The Wonderland described in the tale plays with logic in ways that have made the story of lasting popularity with adults as well as children. It is considered to be one of the most characteristic examples of the genre of literary nonsense.


REVIEW 

I read this book recently and like a huge fan of Fantasy It feels so amazing to read this book because is like fresh air on my face. Probably many of you already know about this story because is very popular but goes when a little girl called Alice falls asleep and after that, she wakes up and starts to follow a little white bunny and she falls out in a very long hole where she spends hours and hours falling until finally, she wakes up in a world of complete fantasy where there are many interesting characters.

This is a book with amazing quotes and Incredibles metaphors. And even you can find a character that is a little obsessed with metaphors but in fact, this book is about metaphors. This book is how you can feel yourself in this crazy world and how we are completely changing one time per time. We can believe that we are adults and that we are all grown up but in fact, in certain situations, we can feel again like little kids running without any idea about what to do next and that despair is something real.

“How puzzling all these changes are! I'm never sure what I'm going to be, from one minute to another.”

If you read this book comprehending that the journey that has Alice is all a metaphor about real-life everything changes completely and you can enjoy the book better. This book has a lot of nonsense but life is a bit nonsense most of the time. And talking about the time I want to share another great quote.

“If you knew Time as well as I do,’ said the Hatter, ‘you wouldn’t talk about wasting it. It’s him.”

And like these you cand fin many other amazing quotes with a little strange story. The fantasy in this book is really good because you start to imagine a group of cards being King and Queen. But for me, the most important part is that this book gives you life lessons and I think that everyone who loves books and fantasy should read it.


“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?’ ‘That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,’ said the Cat. ‘I don’t much care where —’ said Alice. ‘Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,’ said the Cat.”
