Through the Looking Glass

Out of curiousity, have you all read this book? I started reading it online in English class due to being excused from the test for my disadvantage of having missed a day because of illness. It was very entertaining, and I vaguely remember someone (I believe Evan Airs?) In fourth grade pronouncing it as "creepy". Any opinions?


  1. 1. It's Evan AYERS.
    2. I do not remember him calling it creepy.
    3. Do YOU think it is creepy?
    4. That book is by Lewis Carroll right?
    5. I think Laga's read it.
    6. I have not read it.
    7. Is The Walrus and the Carpenter related to that book, or is it just another random poem by Lewis Carroll?

  2. And thanks again for posting Mira. You are my hero.

  3. I APOLOGIZE for spelling his name wrong. Geesh. ^-^ And I remember him saying that. No I do not think it is creepy. So far. Yes it is by Lewis Carroll, and the Walrus and the Carpenter is a poem that is told to Alice by Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee.

  4. And I am your HERO? Have you hit your head lately, Sol? And how hard, exactly? Hahaha just kidding. Of course I am. XD

  5. Some people think it's creepy because it's written based on malice - literally, that's the theme of the whole book. Any kids who have a mother with Borderline Disorder or know anyone like that can't stand Alice in Wonderland because they are able to relate to the emotions. Considering it was written to be a children's book, I'm gonna throw in my two cents and say that it's rather disturbing.

  6. I have not read it, I think. I am bugged by any Lewis carrol that isn't poetry, though. I guess I just have a higher bar for my suspension of disbelief in poems. So I am in the quandary of loving Carrol's poems, and disliking his books, or pretty much anything based on them. Most of the experience I have with it is Disney's animated adaption, which I dislike vehemently. But that's just my opinion.

  7. Whitely, you have intrigued me about this book... I shall have to read it myself sometime.
    Laga, you have a "higher bar for your suspension of disbelief in poems?" Interesting. I wonder why that is... and nice use of the word "vehemently." =)
    And Mira... =P

  8. Laga, you hate disney animation? Interesting. Whitely-Hi! Nice to meet you. :) As for the topic, I'm interested to hear that Lewis Carrol's books are so disturbing. I only read the first few chapters of Through the Looking Glass, and those I thought were quite good. Hm. I agree that as a children's book, however, it is creepy.
