Meh. Lewis Carroll has never really been my idea of a good time, and I wondered if reading the complete works would change my mind. It hasn't. I can acknowledge the quality of his prose, the cleverness of some of his verse, but on the whole the subject matter treated and the way in which it is treated don't interest me much. Incidentally, lest I be thought a slave to fashion, I would like to point out that when I undertook to read the complete works of Lewis Carroll I was unaware of the big-budget Wonderland movie in the works, and it is mere coincidence that I have finished reading it around the time the movie came out.
