Review: I have not read many of the classic stories, I know awful isn’t it, so I have made a promise to myself that I will read more of them. This is the first one I choose. I have read this as a child but wanted to read it from an adults perspective. I was not disappointed.
I would love to be Alice and disappears down a rabbit hole from time to time. It is brilliant the way that logic is turned on its head and absolutely anything can happen. I think this is the best kind of story. Using a child’s dreams and thoughts creates such an amazing story of purity.
I really enjoyed this book and sometimes going back and reading the classics is just as good as reading a new and up coming novel.
