The novel has two main plots; one set in the real world at the time the book was published (the Victorian era), the other in the fictional world of Fairyland. While the latter plot is a fairytale with many nonsense elements and poems, similar to Carroll's most famous children's book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the story set in Victorian Britain is a social novel, with its characters discussing various concepts and aspects of religion, society, philosophy and morality. Quotes from the book: a€œThis 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.'a€ a€œPerhaps the hardest thing in all literature is to write anything original.a€ a€œIf Shakespeare was not inspired, one may well doubt if any man ever was.a€ Readers' reviews: a€œAs a€˜Alice in Wonderlanda€™ 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 more about the author and his work, though I don't think it influenced me on evaluating.a€ (Anne, goodreads.com) a€œThis is my go-to book whenever I need to forget my troubles. Sylvie and Bruno is like a best friend you can always depend on.a€ (Alexandra, goodreads.com) a€œThis 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.a€ (Alysta, goodreads.com)Sylvie and Bruno is like a best friend you can always depend on.a€ (Alexandra, goodreads.com) a€œThis is my favorite Lewis Caroll book.
