Through The Looking Glass
on 5 March 2013
It's Lewis Carroll's follow up to his most famous work and best of all, with the introduction of Kindle, it's now one of the many classics that can be legally acquired free of charge.
I'd recommend to anybody looking for an introduction to Carroll's work to head to Alice's Adventures In Wonderland first, as this is as previously mentioned the sequel and both books rank among his more accessible works. While initially aimed at children, Through the Looking-Glass is beautifully written and flows with a bizarre sense of humour that it's near impossible not to enjoy. In a sense it's actually more plot driven than its predecessor, but that's not saying a whole lot, this is a book still primarily based around wacky characters, crazy situations and vaguely psychedelic events.
Essentially it's great, it's classic and it's free. What have you got to lose?
