I actually listened to this one as an audiobook, I found that it is a good way to start picking away at my Classics Club List, since I am very behind schedule. That aside, here is the review. It is shorter than most, but the book was great!
Both ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and ‘Through the Looking Glass’ are such fun books! They really are very clever.
This is about Alice’s adventures in the world on the other side of the looking glass, or mirror. She participates in a giant game of chess, she becomes a queen, and has a very confusing dinner party.
The thing that I particularly like about this book was not just finding out what crazy thing would happen next, but also finding out how the looking glass world worked. See, there was a lot of wordplay. And did you know that the memories of looking glass people work both forwards and backwards? And they can subtract a knife from bread, or a bone from a dog? What would you have left in those math problems?
