The Book Is Built As a Dream Alice is Having
The story takes place In the mid-18th century. Places and scenery change In a blink of an eye. Just like In a dream. so we don’t know very well where Alice is. For example, Alice walks through a door from inside a house to Its garden. when she passes through It again. she Is In the court of the queen… The main character is Alice She is a young girl with a tendency to talk to herself. She appears to be resourceful. She has a cat named Diana. She falls through a rabbit hole to wonderland. She is actually the only main character, mainly because all the other characters appear briefly. And there are plenty of those: The Cheshire cat. the duchess. the queen, the white rabbit and others.
The story begins on a bank of a river. where Alice sits near her sister and her cat. Dian. Suddenly she sees a white rabbit dressed in a coat. Alice lollows him into a rabbit hole. In the bottom she tries to get into a beautiful garden, She experiences many changes In size due to some beverages and foods. Eventually she shrinks and gets carried away With a stream of tears she cried earlier, On the shore. she goes to the rabbit‘s house to bring him his gloves and fan. In his house she grows to fill the house, The rabbit tries to remove her by inserting a lizard (Bill) through the chimney and Alice sends him rocketing away With a kick. She shrinks again and leaves the house. She goes to meet the caterpillar and he tells her that one end of his mushroom shrinks and the other grows.
She goes to the house of the duchess and meets a talking Cheshire cat and after a very odd conversation she goes to the mad hatter’s tea party. It’s a very strange party. Alter enjoying some tea. she continues her journey and somehow gets to the beginning again. Now she is able to enter the room with the caterpillars advice. it turns out to be the queen’s royal gardens. The queen and king arrive and soon Alice joins the queen‘s cricket game. After all the other players have been executed by the queen. she sends Alice with a Griffin to hear the story of the mock turtle. At some point the griffin takes Alice to the trial In the queen’s court, After some time. Alice starts to grow rapidly and the queen orders her EXECUIIDI’I.
The cards all charge her and she finds herself awakened on her sister’s knees. The subject of the story is the Journey of Alice. now It goes on and who she meets In the course of it. I think the theme of the story relates to that: at the end of the book (final paragraph). Alice’s elder sister dreams of the world Alice visited. and hopes that when Alice grows she Will retain the childhood memories and enthusiasm. So the theme is that one needs to stay young. in heart at least. I thought the book was great. Very funny and interesting. Because I don’t speak native English it‘s sometimes hard to get the point and understand lokes in books. In this book I managed to understand almost every thing quite clearly. mainly because the jokes were mostly based on non- sense. not cultural reference It met my expectations in belng a very cute book.
