Review of Alice in Wonderland

This is such a classic, that rating "Alice in Wonderland" was extremely difficult. Unlike most people, I never read this in school. It was a very new experience for me and the only things I knew about the book came from the Disney adaption, sadly enough.

However, I must say that I really liked the quirky logic and all the lovable characters! I especially liked the caterpillar and the Cheshire cat as well as the Mad Hatter. I could not get a real feel for either the Duchess or the Queen and since this is such a short novel, especially the ending felt slightly rushed.

Also I believe, had I read this without knowing there was a sequel, I would have been tremendously disappointed because of the reveal that Alice seems to have dreamt everything. Even if it ends up not being true, this seems like a poor plot device for getting Alice back to our normal world. I never liked the "It was all a dream!"-explanation.

Still, one has to have read this book. There are many, many sentences that are so brilliant they will force you to read them again and again. Especially if you use a Kindle and have "Popular Hightlights" activated you will be even more aware of the genius Carroll poured into this novel.
