Through the looking glass

Through the looking glass - Lewis Carroll I didn't like this sequel quite as much as Alice in Wonderland. Whereas the former had an actual narrative and symbolism that one could kind of make sense of (or at least read your own interpretations into), Through the Looking Glass is more of a random sequence of events, only loosely tied together by the "plot" of Alice trying to make her way across the chess board to become a Queen. Events and characters happen as randomly as the scenes change. That said, it has all the strange, bemusing, and sometimes slightly dark imagery of the first book, with characters who sometimes produce quite riotous one-liners. Alice is still her thoughtful, polite, but argumentative self, and the poems in this one are lengthy and creative. Not to be missed for fans of the various movies.
