Alice In Wonderland

"But I don't want to go among mad people," - Alice

Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite books. I've lost track of how many times I've read it. My copy has ... seen better days.

I mean, how can you get anything better than a grin without a cat? Or playing croquet with flamingos and hedgehogs?

The only bad thing I have to say about this book is the fact that's it's far too short. But, of course, that's why there's the sequel, Through the Looking Glass.

"Off with her head!" - The Queen of Hearts.

Every character in this book is genius. Pure genius. And the quotes! Oh the quotes! I could probably fill this entire post with simply quotes!

I think my favorite character would have to be the Cheshire Cat. I mean ... come on! Cats without grins?

But, of course, I love the caterpillar, too ... as well as the Duchess ... and the Queen of Hearts ... and, of course, Alice herself.

I love how this is a children's book ... yet it was making fun of the society of Carroll's day. Only the best authors can pull that off and have their books become classics.

So, you see why I love this book so much? It deserves to be a classic.

"You must be [mad] or you wouldn't have come here." - Cheshire Cat.

Hey, thanks for leaving a comment. My author's picky, though, and says she must moderate it first. Well, that's the life of a character, I guess. Can't do anything without your author's permission.
