Magical Giveaway: Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

Maybe all of you have watched nice movie titled "Alice In Wonderland", genius creation from Tim Burton. Have you? Nice movie, isn't it? Well, I was fascinated to see how creative, how Gothic... and how's the way he imagine about grown-up Alice. But, have you known about little Alice? I mean, her story when she first visited Wonderland?

I must admit, story of Alice in Wonderland sounds familiar to me, but actually I never read whole story. I just know, she's little girl, who slipped to the hole under the tree, and found magical world with many amazing creatures. But after that, I really don't know, how the story continues, and how it ends. So, about a week ago, I went to a bookstore, searched for this Alice book. And I found it. The one which is published by Wordsworth Classic. This book also includes its sequel, "Through the Looking Glass". I was so glad to find it's so affordable, so without thinking twice, I bought it. And, I didn't regret it.

Now, I've already finished it, and frankly it was great. Simple language, dreamlike, atmosphere, and fantastical characters with famous illustrations. And, I was thinking on time, oh, you should read it too! So, I decided to give this book for one of you. For free!!!

  12. Halo. Ini Ria dari "Ria&Kristina Diary". Seneng deh ketemu blogger penggemar buku seperti Dela (dan Mbak Fanda, juga Jessie Monica, temen sekampung saya). Saya juga salah satu kutu buku dan kutu loncat (tapi nggak kutu celana dalam). Ampe muka saya mirim ama pinjal. Jadi tugasnya apa? Posting tentang Alice in Wonderland di blog saya? (setelah cerita seremnya tamat kali ya? Sori rada nggak mudengan). Pokoknya salam blogger deh Dela. Oiya, itu Alice memang cerita yang OK banged, sebenernya cerita sindiran terhadap anggota parlemen Inggris dan Lewis Caroll adalah salah satu anggota juga, dia pake nama samaran dan menggambarkan dirinya sebagai Dodo (nama aslinya Dodgson). Aku baru baca versi aslinya engg...sekitar 8 bulan yang lalu. Dari dulu, tahunya cuman pilem kartun di TPI. Eniwei, makaih sudah berkunjung dan baca blogku. xxx

  13. Wah salah. Dela, saya kira kamu yang nicknamenya Alice in Wonderland. Maap2 (tapi gapapalah skalian promosi). Salam kenal! *sumpah, jadi orang gaptek itu susah*
