title: Alice in Wonderland
author: Lewis Carroll
genre: Fiction, fantasy, growing and shrinking
date read: August 12th
review: 3 out of 5 stars
summary: Alice is pulled into the strange world of Wonderland, where she is constantly changing sizes and the people and creatures she encounters make no sense, even if they are speaking English. As she progresses along, things get curiouser and curiouser.
personal thoughts: I was not a fan. This was too weird for me. I also don’t really like the movie, though I know it’s really well known and popular. This kind of weird is not my cup of tea. Good thing it was a short book.
“Alice had got so much into the way of expecting nothing but out-of-the-way things to happen, that it seemed quite dull and stupid for life to go on in the common way.” p. 4
“‘It was much pleasanter at home,’ thought poor Alice, ‘when one wasn’t always growing larger and smaller, and being ordered about by mice and rabbits.'” p. 14
“‘what would be the use of a procession,. . .if people had all to lie down upon their faces, so that they couldn’t see it?'” p. 39
