Review by CliffBurns
Re-read it after many years and didn't find it held up very well. There are spasms of interest: the spaced out caterpillar and mugging Cheshire cat...but long intervals of dullness and doggerel weigh it down. An over-rated classic, redeemed (partially) by scenes of genuine absurdity and excessive silliness.
Review by unlikelyaristotle
I think this book is the epitome of English eccentricity, which is why I loved it. There are several stories around the author, one that he was an epileptic, and that the falling down the hole was a description of one of his seizures, another one which my sister insists on was that he was a drug addict, which sort of taints my view of this as a children's book. I prefer to think he was a brilliant man with a vivid imagination, why is that so hard for people to believe? It's the perfect book to read to a child to spark their own imagination and give them a love of books and reading.
