With as many books as I’ve read, especially growing up, it seems a bit odd that I’ve never read about Alice and her adventures. But somewhere between seeing Spot run and and three guys who were Musketeers, (and yes, a great deal of time spent in Sweet Valley), I seemed to have missed a few steps, er, books.
I might have enjoyed the books more as a kid. Or I might have hated them. It’s too late to know for sure now, but I will say that even as an adult there is much to be appreciated on the pages. As a writer, there’s also much to be learned from Lewis Carroll’s sometimes silly, awfully wonderful prose. If you haven’t read it before, keep an open mind (and a glass of wine in hand) and give it a try. 4 stars.
