I have just started vaguely reading this (Chris got a copy of Housekeeping vs. The Dirt for his birthday) and in an effort to be more Nick Hornby-like I thought I'd share what I've just finished reading.
I haven't read Alice in Wonderland for a little while, and really don't think I paid much attention to Through the Looking Glass when I first read it so it was good to read it again. I bought this abridged version on ebay as I can't find my nice copy - it's pictureless which is a bit sad, as in Alice there is much mention of the pictures. For example if you don't know what a Gryphon looks like, you're obliged to refer to the illustration.
I enjoyed Alice, but Through the Looking Glass is very odd, no?
