All the delightful and bizarre inhabitants of Wonderland are here: the White Rabbit and the Cheshire Cat, the hooka-smoking Caterpillar and the Mad Hatter, the March Hare and the Ugly Duchess . . and, of course, Alice herself - growing alternately taller and smaller, attending demented tea parties and eccentric croquet games, observing everything with clarity and rational amazement.

how wildly bizarre it all was!
the cheshire cat! that disappearing act and the toothy smile!
He was so right there with all the wildness - great voice and really told the story - not just read.
Some books are meant to be read at certain moments in a person's life in order to be fully appreciated:
-Catcher in the Rye
-Diary of Anne Frank
I hope this is the case for this book, as my adult mind failed to surpass the lack of story, coherence and the truly uninteresting protagonist.
I never read this book before now and only had the Disney adaptation to help me muddle through it. I didn't like the animated version either.
I may give it another try for a younger audience when the time comes but for the moment, I may have to admit that I'm not a Victorian era schoolgirl and therefore don't get most of the references in this book.
