liked it

Overall I enjoyed reading this collection. "Alice in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass" were amazing, of course. I also really liked "Sylvie and Bruno." All three were imaginative and unique. However, "Sylvie and Bruno Concluded" was not nearly as well done. It seemed like the author simply took the established characters and used them to rant about his own opinions of society and religion. Most of the prose by Carroll is enjoyable, but some of it seemed rather forced. As I said, I like it well enough over all, but as a collection is seems to be hit-or-miss.
