This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
” I can’t explain myself, I’m afraid, sir,” said Alice, “Because I’m not myself, you see.”When Alice sees a white rabbit take a watch out of its waistcoat pocket she decides to follow it, and a sequence of most unusual events is set in motion.
This is the second installment in the Alice in Wonderland series. We gain a lot of knowledge of whom the Mad Hatter is and his background story. It was nice to get to know him seeing as he is my favorite character in the Wonders of Wonderland.
This is brilliantly plotted, wonderfully inventive and the biggest nonsense ever (in a positive way) it’s filled with humor, riddles and rhymes thus making it an absolute worthy successor to its big sister. These books weren’t written to educate but rather to entertain its audience.
I don’t think this ended up being as popular as the first; however, I believe it’s just as good if not better. I like how the book has a mixture of time. This is a much cleverer story thus making it speak to its elder audience.
I’m so glad I got this book for my birthday – I’ve enjoyed every minute of reading this. Both Alice in Wonderland and this are easily obtained at a fair amount of money, however, if you’re a true fan you’ll need to get this edition of the stories! It’s beautiful and filled with all kinds of different things Lewis Carroll made! Also, it had gold pages!
