Alice in Wonderland

I also read this story Thursday night.  It’s very short (maybe I will also read “Through the Looking Glass” before I count it as a “book read in 2010”) and took me less than an hour – even at my traditionally slow pace.  It was quite strange.  I’m a bit mystified as to how and why it became so iconic and popular.  Maybe it was its strangeness that appeals to people.  Personally, I wonder if Carroll was ‘on drugs’ when he wrote it.  I’ll have to do some research.

Oh, and I read this book via the “Free Books” app on my iPhone.  With the new film coming out this weekend I thought maybe I should finally read this famous work in case I made it out to the movie theater.
