Through the Looking Glass was just as charming as the first Alice book. In this one, Alice ends up in the world on the other side of the glass in the mirror - a world where nursery rhyme characters exist, where chess pieces are real people and where everything is done backwards or in the wrong order. Alice's adventures and the people she met in this world were great. Simply great.
I am once again amazed by Lewis Carroll's imagination. Seriously, how can you come up with stuff like this??
Some of my favorite quotes:
However, this was anything but a regular bee: in fact it was an elephant.and
Alice laughed. 'There's no use trying,' she said: 'one CAN'T believe impossible things.'and
'I daresay you haven't had much practice,' said the Queen. 'When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.
'I didn't say there was nothing BETTER,' the King replied. 'I said there was nothing LIKE it.'
Ha ha. If you need some cheering up, these are the books for you! :-)
