“Curiouser and Curiouser.”
I started reading this one a few years back when it felt like my life was getting “curiouser and curiouser” and yet I couldn’t keep my mind in the book for more than two seconds.
One of the few shorter books on The List I read “Alice” in about two days. It is filled with the inner workings of a child’s imagination and some times makes you think “Is what I’m seeing really what I’m seeing?” Short and to the point “Alice” brings you back to childhood where rabbits can talk and a deck of cards could be pieces in a royal court. At times nonsensical, it all comes together in the end, much as “The Life of Pi” sort of blind sides you with an ending, so does “Alice” provide a method to the madness.
