Alice in Spaced out land

So I watched Alice in Wonderland with Johnny Depp that came out a few months back.

I confess I love Tim Burton stuff. Loved it. I realized I had never read the book by Lewis Carroll. I consider myself to be a fairy tale fan and figured I owed it to myself to read the book. I went to my blessed library and reserved a copy. I think I have now renewed it at least 4 times. Yup, I've had it at least 9 weeks and probably 12 by now. Lucky me, the copy I got also had Through the Looking Glass. For those wondering, it's not long. The type is rather small in the copy that I have but there are only 253 pages. It's just that every time I sit down to read I feel like I am on drugs... not that I know what that feels like other than the stuff I've gotten in the hospital.

Anyway, point is:
It's a hard read, in that I get so confused every time I pick it up and try and read. And yet it is strangely enjoyable. And I do feel the need to finish it. Though I am sure the resolution of Through the Looking Glass will be as weird/ flat as the Alice in Wonderland. For something to ramble on and confuse me it's got to be going disjointed places because those who know me know I have a hard enough time keeping others on my train of thought and probably often confuse others.... oh dear I sound like the book.

In any case it's great if you need to get to sleep and can't, read some of the book, it'll tire your brain right out and you'll be able to take a nap no problem. You might even get to Wonderland yourself. Good luck with that.

  1. haha! I have that book, I read it several years ago and I don't remember it being so tricky. Maybe I'll try it again. I loved the movie too. Eric didn't like it.
