Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland Book Review

Book: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol

# 78 on the Telegraph’s 100 greatest novels of all time.

Grade: D

What is the story about?

Follows Alice’s crazy adventures in her wonder land.

Verdict:

Very disappointed with this book. Had high expectations but it didn’t live up to its rep. I should’ve known .. I don’t usually like anything too whimsical.

You know I’m sure the book has a lot of hidden messages and a lot of morals and lessons.

Just like Lewis Carroll explains when Alice said to the Duchess that she can’t see the moral of her story .. the Duchess replied, “Everything’s got a moral, if only you can find it.”

So I’m sure Alice’s constant change in size has a moral, and the caterpillar with the hookah has a moral, and the smiling cat has a moral and the queen and her pack of cards have a moral .. even the trial about the tarts, I am sure, has a moral.

But to me, it was too crazy, too whimsical, too scattered, didn’t make much sense, and mostly just annoying.

Without any moral that i can find.

Next book:

Catch 22 by Joseph Heller

Another classic that I never read and look forward to reading. Hope I’m not dissapointed again.
