    One thought on “A Tangled Tale”

    1. Ah, Carroll. My life would be nothing without thee. (It's possible to hate someone's guts, but can you love someone's guts? (Something of a bizarre expression at the best of times. I mean, guts? What is hateable or loveable about anyone's guts? I mean, they're guts. I suppose it means, the centre of you; guts=your very core. But it's still bizarre.) If it IS possible, I love Lewis Carroll's guts.)AAAAANYWAY, weirdo parenthesis asideSo normally I hate math. Loooooathe it. But this book is math ma [...]

    2. Un libro que sólo disfrutarán los matemáticos de pura cepa (de ahí mi nota). Le daría una estrella si no fuera por el sentido del humor tan fino que tiene y de los brillantes juegos de palabras.

    3. Ne, já a matematika se rádi nemáme. Od střední školy máme spolu uzavřenou dohodu o neútočení. Ale Carrollovy příběhy a matematické zádrhely včetně skvěle napsaných komentářů jsou bezchybné a naprosto okouzlující.

    4. Si impara che già nell'800 giovani ragazzi e ragazze inglesi che scrivevano alle riviste, per mettere alla prova la loro destrezza nel risolvere i quesiti matematici, ricorrevano a pseudonimi simpatici e fantasiosi, che non sfigurerebbero ancora oggi, nell'era telematica: GIOIOSA, VECCHIO MICIO, BREZZA MARINA, DINAH MITE, QUERCIA DI PALUDE, GINESTRONE, e così via.A loro l'onore di ricevere l'esame e i commenti di -nientemeno- Lewis Carroll in persona.E spiace vedere che già allora, come oggi [...]

    5. I was immediately attracted by this book once I saw it into the shelve of the bookshop. Who does not love the famous Alice? Just starting with the title (the original one) you can appreciate how Carroll plays with words. Puzzles are nice but never astonishing from a mathematical point of view, while the tales are in line with the Carroll's nonsense style.
