Alice In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

Untitled design (2).pngTitle: Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.

Author: Lewis Carroll

Blurb: A girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as with children. It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre. Its narrative course and structure, characters and imagery have been enormously influential in both popular culture and literature, especially in the fantasy genre.

Publisher: Penguin Classics

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.Alice-PNG-alice-in-wonderland-33922018-444-800.png

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.
