Yes I know now it is super fashionable with the film and that but, honestly, I remember when no one I knew had read it or, at least, finished reading this excellent book. I must add that it is one of those rare few things in life where the second part is, in my opinion, as good as the first. So sit back and enjoy Lewis Carrol’s logic in chaos with poor little Alice ^^
It is most definitely and absolute must read!!!^^...more
