So, I’ve taken the chance and dived into what I hope to be an interesting book adventure into the world of classics. In school, I remained rather indifferent to the assigned literature we were supposed to read, such as Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights, Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness (check out our analysis on it, here), and Shakespeare’s Hamlet, to name a few. I honestly think that my personal reading style has a lot to do with, and this may sound crazy to some, the feeling I get while holding or reading a synopsis of a potential story. I’m not easily captivated by pretty covers or witty titles, though it’s simply all about the basis of the story for me.
That’s why whenever I had the opportunity to dive into the world of Wonderland, I couldn’t possibly pass it up. Alice in Wonderland is one of the few classics that I was especially excited to get my hands on.
I’m so happy to say that this was a classic that completely swept me off my feet and transported me, wholeheartedly, into the world of young Alice. I found that the banter and dialogue between the witty, strange, and sometimes downright rude characters and Alice truly added to the weirdness and originality of the story. Alice was a likable character who possessed more intelligence and wit than the average person her age. Her humorous jabs and comebacks kept the mood of the story light, which is always refreshing. (Especially when falls down a hole into a land completely unknown.) It’s one thing to hear about a book for years and years, more specifically a beloved classic such as Alice in Wonderland, though it is entirely another experience when you pick a copy yourself.
If you’re looking for a classic that will keep you in eager anticipation for what comes next and one that is undoubtedly unforgettable, you’ll love Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland.
