@hjbau: It’s actually a rather quick read at only 115 give or take pages; which really it’s less than that because of the various poems peppered throughout the text & the illustrations.
The only rub I have about it now, having read it several times is how Carroll was rather bad at using hanging sentences; although it served a purpose & I’m sure he probably did it purposefully.
Either way both ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ , ‘Through the Looking-Glass’ & his various verse are worth reading. In fact, when I was talking to someone in the forums who thought the Red Queen looked like an elephant, I almost quoted some Carroll to them.
In fact, “The Mad Gardener’s Song” would have fit the situation perfectly. It goes as such:
“He thought he saw an elephant,
that practiced on a fife:
He looked again and found it was
A letter from his wife.
‘At length I realize’, he said,
‘The bitterness of Life!'”
