Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll is an interesting book that gets curiouser and curiouser as you read it. This abstrusely written book is meant for readers with a special taste for books with poems and adventures. In this novel a young girl by the name of Alice clumsily falls down a rabbit hole while following a very queer white rabbit with a strange pocket watch and claiming that he’s late for some important meeting. She lands in a mysterious, but wondrous place known as Wonderland. She goes on many peculiar adventures running into very strange beings including the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, the Cheshire Cat, and even the Queen of Hearts. This a book for people who enjoy amazing word choice, adventures, and those who are amused by the old fashioned text found in this book. Come explore a magical world with Alice in Alice’s Adventures in wonderland and through the Looking-Glass, but beware, because we’re all mad in Wonderland...

I have been really into reading manga lately so I decided to read some classics to make sure my reading level could still improve. Alice in wonderland was confusing at first but once I got into it I couldn't stop! This is a must read!

Alice In Wonderland was a very confusing book for me when I was a child, but now that I'm an adult, it's my all time favorite book. The zany characters and ridiculous conversations delight both the child and the adult in me. I find it amazing that a book written so long ago can still be related to by the people of today.
