Through the Looking Glass - Rating 2/5 Stars
Since the new Alice in Wonderland is coming to the movies soon, I decided with a few people from my book club to read these stories. Since this is my first experience with the books as well as with Lewis Carroll, I expected the books to be like the Disney movie I remember from the past. I was wrong.
We all know the synopsis of Alice in Wonderland; little girl falls down the well and follows the White Rabbit through a passage and gets into all kinds of trouble. This is basically true, but what I didn't know is that Alice would be such a brat. I really wanted to love these stories and I was left with disappointment. While I enjoyed Alice's Adventures in wonderland a bit more than Through the looking glass, it still didn't wow me like I wanted it too. I found myself drifting away from the story as I was reading Through the looking glass, nothing about that story did anything for me.
I don't want to insult anyone as many people love this story, but I was just expecting so much more - and maybe that's the problem.
