This summer we went to England and out to Oxford, where the real Alice lived. At ChristChurch I had to admit to the docent there that I, a well-read,55 year-old, had NEVER read Alice in Wonderland. I saw the movies. But never went to the source. I'm so glad that I was shamed into ordering a copy from PBS. I am now entirely literate! What a charming book, not just for kids! How odd it is that so very little of the specialness made it into the movies. If you are like I was, read it! You'll be so glad you did.

I picked up this classic after watching the new 2010 version of Alice in Wonderland. I was very excited to read this classic story since I had grown up on the Disney version as well. Well...let's just say that this is interesting. I got through it finally, but the jargon and innuendo of the Victorian times that this story was written in was completely lost on me. I would love to say that I enjoyed the story and that it will be a "keeper" in my library, but it sadly will not be.

I am glad to say that I "read" the story which means that I read the words and turned the pages, but probably comprehended about 70% of the story. It was not entertaining because I was having to look up much of the Victorian vernacular. Many of the colloquialisms had to do with politics and societal differences. I figure as I read more about Victorian times much more of the story will make sense. Kudos to those of you who understood and enjoyed this story.
