Read in September, 2009

Would give it a slightly higher rating than 3/5 stars but I wouldn't go 4 stars ... I Walked into this story knowing nothing about the original story itself and its place in the history of American literature else I would have appreciated it more. Instead, what I knew of the story was the cartoon I Watched as a kid and Tim Burton's version (one of my favorite movies).

I liked some of the fanciful descriptions, especially of the food, and the crazy arcane words and the setting it described. I disliked that there was no dialogue at all (just a long narrative) and the insane page long run-ons of boring stuff nobody cares about.

Someday I'll read this again and rate it higher....
