  • Prime example of absurdism done right.Unlike the Alice stories, the narrator himself is the Observer of reality clashing with magic He weaves himself in and out of several vignettes which portray silly discourses among friends and Fairyland The titular characters are but devices, sometimes human sometimes fairy They are just a feeling, namely childhood awe, and transitory in roles and features They are personifications.The playfulness in this book dare one to continue reading until the conclusio [...]


  • I think that synopsis kind of got this book down to pat Sylvie and Bruno were two kids who this man seemed to meet in his dreams whenever he fell asleep and believed were faeries I am not entirely sure what this book was about, and it seemed to just be a collection of stories about what happened when he was asleep and going on adventures with the two children I know that this is supposed to be childrens literature for his time and I can respect that, but it was a bit hard for me to follow myself [...]


  • This was a bizarre book It had no real plot and no real beginning, middle or end The story flipped back and forth between the life of a normal, middle aged victorian man who s point of view the story is told from and his dream sequences In the real world, the man and his various acquaintances have profound discussions about life They talk about the nature of love, about physics, about evolution, and about God and who He really is Whenever the man falls asleep which is surprisingly often he dream [...]


  • This is an extraordinary book, and one clearly in need of a good editor To combine a story about fairy children with discussions about religious practices, among other things, mixed in with a rather unconvincing love triangle Then there is the unbearable cuteness of ickle Bruno, whose baby talk kept reminding me of Dorothy Parker s review of A A Milne in her Constant Reader column Tonstant Weader fwowed up I believe the second part is slightly better, so I shall have a crack at it for the sake o [...]


  • Es esta la ltima obra de Lewis Carroll, poco conocida en espa ol y menos reeditada a n Fue eclipsada por Alicia en el Pa s de las Maravillas y se la ha considerado una obra menor, un panfleto Sin embargo, en ella podemos apreciar al mejor Carroll, quien como un distinguido chef, nos sirve un banquete de palabras, elaborado con ingredientes de primera calidad, siempre en su dosis justa humor ingl s, que en ocasiones roza el absurdo l cidas cr ticas a la realidad pol tica y social de la poca y sus [...]


  • This is an impossible to rate book, but I m going to try.Don t expect an exact clone of the Alice books, or you will be bound to be disappointed.It is precisely Lewis Carroll s intention to write something unlike the Alice books.The two most off putting aspects for many modern reader are probably Bruno s cloying baby talk which hides a bit of subtle subversion, if it offends oo and those long passages that outline Carroll s theologico philosophical speculations that do not include nonsense.The b [...]


  • Non ci siamoDiversi passaggi notevoli, se non geniali, sepolti e soffocati da una valanga di divagazioni inutili, tedianti e anche parecchio moralistiche e fin troppo legate all attualit del tempo obiettivamente, cosa me ne pu importare delle polemiche sulla sobriet delle messe protestanti di fine Ottocento.Disordinato e confuso, si fa almeno leggere velocementeAhim , quanto si nota come l assenza di Alice abbia tanto nuociuto all ispirazione del reverendo Dodgson


  • For me Sylvie and Bruno is just as wonderful as Alice in Wonderland, as well as anything else that this amazing man has written In this book, we follow a nameless older man, the narrator, as he interacts with fairies and other real and semi real people while drifting in and out of different kinds of surroundings The events follow a kind of dream logic in which you take things as they come while only occasionally wondering at the strangeness of it all.Despite what Mr Carroll himself says in the P [...]


  • gutenberg ebooks 48630Opening LESS BREAD MORE TAXES and then all the people cheered again, and one man, who was excited than the rest, flung his hat high into the air, and shouted as well as I could make out Who roar for the Sub Warden Everybody roared, but whether it was for the Sub Warden, or not, did not clearly appear some were shouting Bread and some Taxes , but no one seemed to know what it was they really wanted.All this I saw from the open window of the Warden s breakfast saloon, lookin [...]


  • A most excellent children s story that you can find for free online on Gutenberg One of the lesser known stories by Carroll, but so wonderful He wrote this to try and change the formula for kids books, to help provide a close look at the way kids are that is amazing, such a fresh perspective on life and so much wonder that we often lose at adults I highly recommend this one for anyone with kids or that is a kid at heart The story follows our protagonists Sylvie and Bruno is their madcap adventur [...]


  • As Alice in Wonderland is one of my favourite stories from childhood, I was really looking forward to this other novel by Lewis Carroll and wasn t disappointed at all A lot of supplementary material let me know about the author and his work, though I don t think it influenced me on evaluating The story itself is amazing as can be, telling from two gorgeous siblings and their adventures, being told by an older man Every single page, every sentence, every word, even every letter is worth the 5 st [...]


  • This is my favorite Lewis Caroll book Even though this book is much less well known than Alice s Adventures in Wonderland, I like it better I love how he connects the imaginary and the ordinary, the seen and the invisible, and children s beliefs to that of adult society.Many things that Arthur and Mister Sir talk about sets me thinking I especially love the talk about God s creation and Heaven This book is deep, meaningful, and touching, but still retains Caroll s whimsical uniqueness to a certa [...]


  • I think this book took me longer to read than any other book I have ever read, but it is very vivid and inter looped


  • Favorite Quotes This species of literature has received the very appropriate name of paddling which might fitly be defined as that which all can write and none can read Perhaps the hardest thing in all literature is to write anything original If Shakespeare was not inspired, one may well doubt if any man ever was If a man finds himself haunted by evil desires and unholy images let him commit to memory passages of Scripture, or passages from the best writers in verse or prose Let him store his mi [...]


  • A lesser known work than his Alice in Wonderland books, Sylvie and Bruno is another of those strange children s stories from Lewis Carroll that makes one wonder whether the Rev Charles L Dodgson s stories were, indeed, written for children To be sure, the humor is often as painful as punful as when a professor says, The smaller animal ought to go to bed at once and he is asked why the child needed to do so Because he can t go at twice p 216 in my eBook version Or again, when one child is describ [...]



  • It is no surprise that the Sylvie and Bruno stories aren t among Lewis Carroll s most famous, but I wasn t disappointed by them Their balance between reality and fantasy is weighted much heavily toward reality than are the Alice books, but fortunately that doesn t stifle Carroll s flair for silliness as much as you might expect.Mister Sir, the narrator, reminds me just a tiny bit of Carlos Castaneda in The Teachings of Don Juan in that he drifts back and forth among several alternate and overla [...]


  • I didn t know that he d even made this book or its sequel until I got the omnibus edition I think, judging by the length and the complex discussions of morality and social responsibility, that it was probably written for a slightly older audience While the strange shifts in space time and consciousness were hard to follow at first, I found that I actually really enjoyed them once I got used to it This was a really good book to be reading while on a weird acid summer odyssey There was a really h [...]


  • This is a strange hodge podge of sentimental stories of fairies children, nonsense stories verse, and pseudo scientific theological dialogues I went ahead and put it on my young readers shelf because I think it is meant for young readers, I m just not sure how much they might enjoy some of the conversations of the adult human characters In the introduction Carroll says that he created the Sylvie and Bruno stories by collecting random thoughts and dialogues he had or thought about then piecing th [...]


  • This book is so strange I had an old, out of print edition of it when I was growing up, lost it, and couldn t find it again for years I found it republished by Dover when I was like 10 in this off the cuff paperback which is full of formatting errors and typos, and if I remember right listed with the paper dolls in Dover s catalog The sequel, Sylvie and Bruno Concluded, is even elusive I ve never been able to find it anywhere and both because of and besides that it s magical than the first one [...]


  • Lewis Carroll writing style is crazy and unpredictable It works in Alice in Wonderland because it happens in Wonderland Carroll s characters are insane but it works because they live in Wonderland There is no plot or reason it s Wonderland Imagine all that insanity in a real world setting with horrendous transitions leaving you lost between the real world and dreams I get that this story has some philosophical high points with subjects like religion, love and evolution but the story is awful I w [...]


  • It was an interesting and somewhat sweet book, but it got a little babyish after a while I thought my sister would be the type of person to enjoy it better so I got her to read it and she did for once Unfortunately, I never finished the story myself, neither did I start, let alone finish the sequel, Sylvie and Bruno Concluded Well, as far as I know, there s no rule about finishing every book that you start, or I would have a lot to account for


  • This was very excellent I think it is Lewis Carroll at his best Yes, better then the Alice series put together This story definitely has a healthy dose of what is reality and what is fantasy dream Some stories can over react with that issue but this is perfect And when these two worlds collide there seems to be harmony to it It definitely is one of his church oriented stories as well as his best This, and Sylvie and Bruno Concluded


  • I must admit that a big part of the story seemed like nonsense to me I guess there are secret meaningful behind certain words or phrases but I didn t get most of them I tried to enjoy the story as I have done with Alice in wonderland I am not sure I will read the book again but I think I will try to read its continuation in an effort to understand about the story.


  • This was truly terrible Bruno puts a strong case for infanticide The theological discussion elements are tedious in the extreme But to be fair, one of the worse elements of the book, the lack of clarity as to what is happening, gives the best feel I have ever read of what dreams are actually like Bur really, it s awful I can t bear to read the sequel.


  • Before i read this book i ve heard it isn t much popular cause the storyline s jumping randomly from place to place, but as Alice s adventures lover i had to build my own opinion My opinion now is that i LOVE this book and i d recommend it to anyone who likes Lewis Carroll s work


  • I enjoyed this whimsical work by Lewis Carroll A warning to other readers though you must be in an odd mood in order to appreciate the zany, almost hard to grasp humor about it all I think Carroll had fun writing this book.


  • I don t really have the temperament for Lewis Carroll, but the Victorian world he inhabited is very attractive to me There are hints of genius in this mashup of the naive and the sentimental, but it would have taken a skillful writer to really pull it off.


  • Geniale ed esilarante, perfino pi assurdo e meraviglioso di Alice in Wonderland Alcuni personaggi sono buffissimi ma ancor di pi la logica dei bambini.Presenti anche citazioni di Shakespeare, Tennyson e Shelley desiderare di pi


  • Can t decide Some parts were exhausting and boring, others psychedelic and intriguing But mostly, I wanted to finish it already I loved both Alice stories and The Hunting of the Snark, but this one disappointed.
