Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

"Well! I've often seen a cat without a grin,"thought Alice; "but a grin without a cat! It's the most curious thing!"

Alice in Wonderland is the story of a young girl who has an apparent wild, but interesting imagination. It is rather hard not to like her.

Alice is a young girl, who, like any other child, is playful, and has a vivid imagination. One day, whilst she was tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, she fell asleep. Here begins her fascinating adventure which slips through immaculate narration; unable to be comprehended as reality or a dream.

I can personally say that these queer happenings will seriously affect one's mental stability for a short while. She sees a white rabbit running close by her saying,"Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late." Then, she falls down a hole, changes her size a couple of times, meets a Dodo, a Lizard, a Caterpillar which smokes: well yes, it is ignoring the signs which say 'No smoking', a grin without a cat- the Cheshire cat. She the parties with a Mad Hatter and a Hare, plays a game of croquet with the King; the most eccentric fact about this is that playing cards are hoops, flamingos are mallets. And I'd say, the Queen of Hearts definitely isn't my favourite character; I'm not often pleased to be with people who shout,"OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!!!!"every five seconds.

I enjoyed the book thoroughly. Alice's adventure in wonderland was truly an intriguing and 'curious' one. After reading it, I think my cerebellum fused from reading her adventures with the Mock Turtle and a Gryphon. I admire the author's imagination and writing skills. Once I put down the book, liking it was simply inevitable. I'm surprised that a stringent and meticulous person such as myself actually liked- I'm sorry- loved the story, where things are happening so erratically. As for my curious little girl; for a different little girl, I should use a different language; J'aime la petite fille.

I shan't give this book a high rating; I'm going to give it the highest rating. I highly recommended this book to all.
