3.0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointing!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on August 30, 2015
Now I'm going to be honest, I wasn't overly impressed with this one, I love the first book and had high hopes for Through The Looking Glass. It was a bit of a struggle to get through, the great thing about the first book is the silliness and fun of it, and even though you can see that Lewis Carroll tried doing the same thing with this book, it just didn't work out that way.
It was actually quite boring, there were a lot of poems in there that you just couldn't understand and didn't make sense in any way. The story was supposed to be that Alice was playing chess so she could be queen, but you completely forget all that for half of the book as it doesn't seem to focus on that so much. You came across a few of the characters that you see in the Disney film and some new characters.

It was actually quite confusing at times as well, I unfortunately didn't have the same excitement reading it as Alice felt. We meet new characters as I mentioned before but to be honest they didn't really make much sense, like Humpty Dumpty who just talked complete nonsense and a sheep shopkeeper that sells eggs, and the more you buy the less expensive they are.
It felt more like short stories as there felt like there wasn't any particular plot going on really.
When people talk about Alice In Wonderland do they talk about the queen of hearts or the red queen? Humpty Dumpty or the cheshire cat? I do feel that the first book was so good and this just feels like quite a bad sequel. Alice In Wonderland was fun, silly nonsense, this one was just pure nonsense I couldn't really get my head around. I was very disappointed after finishing this one.
