My senior course this semester is about literature of the fantastic (a topic that I took primarily because it fit my schedule—ha). The fantastic is a literary genre that explores different facets of and character and reader responses to the supernatural. I could go into greater detail, but I'll spare you. I'll be reading mostly short stories, but with the books I read, I'll be posting reviews.
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll by Lewis Carroll
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
This book wasn't my favorite; I only read it for a literature class. I've always found this story a little bizarre, and I didn't find it any more engaging in book form. (In fact, I think I might enjoy it more as a film.) This book doesn't really have a point; Alice doesn't change at all from the beginning to the end; Alice is inquisitive but isn't smart. This is definitely a book I won't read again.
