Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

Considering I gently suggested forced my boyfriend to read my favourite book I thought it was only right that I read his...and I'd been wanting to read Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass for a while. I very nearly did a piece of coursework on it...many many dark days ago. Ah college, how I hated thee.

Anyway, I'd always loved the film adaptations, particularly Disney and Tim Burton's. I already knew some of the story but the book had so much more material. There's loads that the films didn't include or changed in some way. I prefer the book so much more. If I ever got the chance I'd love to look at it from an academic viewpoint, there opportunities to analyse are limitless.

Throughout both stories there are plenty of illustrations which add to the story and help visualise it. I adore the songs and rhymes scattered about too. Once again they add to the story and really flesh out the nonsensical world. Each character despite often getting limited page time...and making no sense they're incredibly well formed and they stick with you.

I absolutely adored this story.

Thank-you Ryan for giving me a reason to read this.
