Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.
Alice in Wonderland. B and I went to see the movie a few months ago and I was determined to actually read the book. I loved it. It was such a whimsical vacation read. It was funny and crazy and strange and amazing. The world that Lewis Carroll created was so believable despite its obvious absurdity. The characters are interesting despite only brief encounters with some of them. The crazy poetry and songs were literary works of art in and of themselves. The best part of the book was the ability to lose yourself in Wonderland and allow your imagination to run along with Alice on this fantastic adventure. It was a light read with no deep thought required...perfect for summer vacation!
