If you’ve read Alice in Wonderland then you know what to expect – a lot more of the same. Through the Looking Glass makes use of many of the same literary techniques that make its predecessor so unique, but the same techniques are used in different ways to prevent the reader from getting bored.
It’s a nice, short novel, structured to follow a set of moves on a chess board – well worth reading, but read Alice in Wonderland first. If you plan on reading this to children, you’ll enjoy it just as much as they will, and the short chapters are the perfect length for bedtime reading.
If, on the other hand, you’re like me and read on the way to work (and have a soft spot for children’s books), you can get through it in a day – what’s keeping you? Oh, and say hi to the red queen for me!
