Absolute must reads: DAY 4

Posted: June 22, 2010 in Absolute must reads

It must be the exams period but lately I am feeling quite childish, like a twelve year old really… consequently today I am going to tell you about my all time favourite all time transition from childhood and teenager book ^^ (try saying that last sentence with a mouthful of corn flakes… :P)

ALICE IN WONDERLAND

SYNOPSIS

Alice in Wonderland is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll .It tells the story of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar and anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic in ways that have given the story lasting popularity with adults as well as children.

BEST OF

-The caterpillar: actually reminds me of most teachers in school… LOL

-The duchess: don’t tell me you have never seen people like that…

-The Cheshire cat: an absolute classic, I would love one for Xmas.

-The queens: both bonkers in their own little way.

-“Alice pudding, pudding Alice”(red queen) “If you please your majesty, I wish you would not introduce me to the dishes, for it is very unpleasant to eat something you have been introduced to.” (Alice)

-A long ETC

NOT THE BEST:

-The white rabbit: I find him completely irritating…

-The mock turtle: Completely sinister to my like

IN CONCLUSION

Yes I know now it is super fashionable with the film and that but, honestly, I remember when no one I knew had read it or, at least, finished reading this excellent book. I must add that it is one of those rare few things in life where the second part is, in my opinion, as good as the first. So sit back and enjoy Lewis Carrol’s logic in chaos with poor little Alice ^^

It is most definitely and absolute must read!!!^^
