    Nope, nope, nope, don't like it, can't like it, don't want to like it. Well, actually, probably if I had a really good annotated edition and an in-depth class on it, I could learn to appreciate it. But Lewis Carroll's nonsense just drives me bonkers, and how I'm going to write my es...

    It colorfully details the sham that is organized religion. The Walrus - with his girth and good-nature - obviously refers to either the Buddha, or - with his tusks - the lovable Hindu elephant god, Lord Ganesha. This takes care of the Eastern religions. The Carpenter is an obvious refe...

    Crazy things take place in wonderland, where Alice takes a second visit through the looking glass. Imagination on the other side stands still, things happen with no reason (or they are reasonable in their own way!!). I think Wonderland has inspired many other works of art and it is lov...

    Oh dear, I disliked this one even more than the first one. It was just as nonsensical, but even more so if that was possible. Unlike the first book this one was harder for me to follow, and because of that I got bored in some places and it was pretty hard for me to work my way through ...

    It is said that Alice's Adventures in Wonderland represents the twelve hours of the day and Through the Looking-Glass the twelve hours of the night. And this story is darker, indeed (although, in my opinion the first wasn't a very jolly one, either) and somehow less enhancing, although...

    "But are you really pro-life?" asked Alice. "Because you know, I've heard pro-life people talk before, and they sound quite different." "When I use a word," Trumpty Drumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean ? neither more nor less." "...

    Alice at the ripe old age of seven and a half is still bored , as she plays with her adorable black and white kittens, yet she needs something better, again ignored by her older sister...wants more stimulation, excitement, yes adventures, so decides to go through a looking -glass and e...

    It?s not fair that I have to review this book. I mean, no one is making me. Technically speaking, I am in no way obligated to review this. But also, in a much more real important way, because I am the one saying it: I absolutely must. Because I love this book so goddamn much. ...

    If you love children's stories, you will love Through the Looking Glass. If you love magic, you will love Through the Looking Glass. If you love words, you will love Through the Looking Glass. I love Through the Looking Glass. ...

    I had the strangest dream. I dreamed I found myself in Wonderland, went there trough the looking glass, but while I was there, I couldn't remember what Wonderland looked like. After I woke up, I decided it was the best time for me to finally read this book and find my answers. W...

    The second installment of Alice's nonsensical adventures is not quite as fun as the first, although we do meet Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Jabberwock and Bandersnatch get a mention, and Humpty Dumpty makes a cameo along with the King's horses and men. Chess is the overriding theme i...

    Nope, nope, nope, don't like it, can't like it, don't want to like it. Well, actually, probably if I had a really good annotated edition and an in-depth class on it, I could learn to appreciate it. But Lewis Carroll's nonsense just drives me bonkers, and how I'm going to write my es...

    Oh dear, I disliked this one even more than the first one. It was just as nonsensical, but even more so if that was possible. Unlike the first book this one was harder for me to follow, and because of that I got bored in some places and it was pretty hard for me to work my way through ...

    Nope, nope, nope, don't like it, can't like it, don't want to like it. Well, actually, probably if I had a really good annotated edition and an in-depth class on it, I could learn to appreciate it. But Lewis Carroll's nonsense just drives me bonkers, and how I'm going to write my es...

    Oh dear, I disliked this one even more than the first one. It was just as nonsensical, but even more so if that was possible. Unlike the first book this one was harder for me to follow, and because of that I got bored in some places and it was pretty hard for me to work my way through ...

    "But are you really pro-life?" asked Alice. "Because you know, I've heard pro-life people talk before, and they sound quite different." "When I use a word," Trumpty Drumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean ? neither more nor less." "...

    It?s not fair that I have to review this book. I mean, no one is making me. Technically speaking, I am in no way obligated to review this. But also, in a much more real important way, because I am the one saying it: I absolutely must. Because I love this book so goddamn much. ...

    I think that the failure not only of Children's Literature as a whole, but of our very concept of children and the child's mind is that we think it a crime to challenge and confront that mind. Children are first protected from their culture--kept remote and safe--and then they are thru...

    I had the strangest dream. I dreamed I found myself in Wonderland, went there trough the looking glass, but while I was there, I couldn't remember what Wonderland looked like. After I woke up, I decided it was the best time for me to finally read this book and find my answers. W...

    The second installment of Alice's nonsensical adventures is not quite as fun as the first, although we do meet Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Jabberwock and Bandersnatch get a mention, and Humpty Dumpty makes a cameo along with the King's horses and men. Chess is the overriding theme i...
