Alice in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll - Review

Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking GlassAlice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have meant to read this book for years, after all it is a 'classic' and I have felt a bit of a fraud for not having read it. But I have now. Yay!

Thumbs Up
Crazily wonderful.
I don't really know what I was expecting when I picked up Alice in Wonderland but I know for sure that I wasn't expecting to enjoy it as thoroughly as I did.
It was brilliant.
Thanks to the many different films adaptations I knew generally what was going to be happening as far as the story line went but there was so many bits and pieces that have been overlooked or changed it was a suprise from beginning to end.
The characters were all larger than life and completely mental in the best of ways. From the talking animals running caucus-races to the hookah smoking caterpillar.

Thumbs Down
I don't think there was anything that I didn't like about this book. Some sections did seem to drag and I found less interesting than other bits but not enough for me to stop turning the pages.

All in All
I am so glad I have now read this book. I think it will be one that I'll be shoving at people for a while.
