Book Review: Alice in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass

Alice in Wonderland, by Lewis CarollBy Lewis Caroll

Rating: 7/10

Topic: Alice’s adventures in the magical world of Wonderland

Both Alice books are children’s stories, but the nonsensical and magical world makes adults fans too. The nonsense stories are interesting, and you meet iconic characters – such as the funny Cheschire Cat and the Red Queen.

But there’s also hidden gems in the two books. Here’s a small sample:

  • “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
    “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.”
    “I don’t much care where –”
    “Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.”
  • “Who in the world am I? Ah, that’s the great puzzle.”
  • “Oh, you can’t help that,” said the cat. “We’re all mad here.”
  • “It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.”
  • “Why, sometimes, I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
  • “She generally gave herself very good advice, (though she very seldom followed it).”
