Book Review: "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I never read this book as a kid. My familiarity with the story stems mainly from the Disney adaptation and general knowledge. The Kindle version of the book was free, it was pretty short, and I decided I'd give it a shot.

I'm sorry I bothered.

This book is definitely *not* my cup of tea. I enjoyed the wikipedia entry about the book more than the book itself. It noted that the book is classified as "nonsense literature," and I cannot agree more. The book is utter nonsense. I just could not get into the spirit of the writing at all.

If you love this book, more power to you. I'll stick with the film adaptations. And I won't be reading "Through The Looking Glass."
