Furthermore, considering it contains both books, plus the excellent Hunting of the Snark, it is a fantastic price.
However, there are still some glaring mistakes, such as some formatting bugs in a few of the poems and spelling errors in places (such as at the start of Looking Glass, where some of the Ls are replaced with 1s - I guess a scanner did the 'writing here').
5 stars for the great price and superior formatting over the other options. -1 star for the glaring lack of proof reading from the publisher.
So on our anniversary I looked and looked. I found it here! I couldn't have been more happy about my purchase, and my girlfriend was absolutely overwhelmingly ecstatic and loves it. Amazing in every way
Through the Looking Glass is more logical than Wonderland, Alice is moving across the land square by square like a chess board, and meeting characters in each square. It still seems like a dream but it's less... trippy. I also like Alice herself more in the second book, she's less argumentative and confused. Some of her fancies are so sweet, like when Alice describes the snow loving the trees and fields and kissing them gently.
I think Wonderland has the better characters, with the Chesire Cat, Mad Hatter, and the white rabbit, while Looking Glass has the better poetry with Walrus and the Carpenter and The Jabberwocky. It's billed as a children's story but the puns tickled my funny bone and I enjoyed it much more hearing it as an adult.
I listened to the audible version by Jack Nolan, and he did a great job as narrator, he gave each character a separate speaking voice but they weren't overdone. They fit in really well and didn't distract from the story. I really liked the cool editing feature during the first attempt at The Jabberwocky!
In the Immersion Reading in the Kindle Book store. The Try Immersion Reading in a Classic for 99¢. The professional reading is now $2.99, I wrote to Amazon customer service and they credited my account $3.00. If you want to download professional narration in one of those classics, call or write Amazon Customer Service and complain. I really enjoy Whispersync, and so many books have such ridiculous prices 1. For a digital book in the public domain 2. The increasingly some of the prices are becoming outrageous, Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut for example costs about $11.65. We all need to make Amazon aware that they are going to price themselves out of existence. Especially Prime members.
