I've been reading Alice's Adventures in Wonderland lately, and loving it! I've seen the original Disney movie, and the new one is one of my favorites, but I've never actually read the book completely.
The Dormouse had closed its eyes by this time and was going off into a doze; but on being pinched by the Hatter, it woke up again with a little shriek, and went on: "that begins with an M, such as mouse-traps, and the moon, and memory, and muchness -- you know you say things are 'much of a muchness' -- did you ever see such a thing as drawing of a muchness!"
This book has a lot of fun quotes, and I've been laughing through the whole thing.
"If you knew time as well as I do," said the Hatter, "you wouldn't talk about wasting it. It's him."
It's interesting to see, as always, what parts of the book they incorporated into the movie, and how the characters have changed over the years. I still love the Hatter, all versions. Alice on the other hand, I find her highly annoying in the book, while I adore her in the 2010 film.
"Will you walk a little faster?" said a whiting to a snail,"There's a porpoise close behind us, and he's treading on my tail.See how eagerly the lobsters and the turtles all advance!They are waiting on the shingle - will you come and join the dance?Will you, wo'n't you, will you, wo'n't you, will you join the dance?Will you, wo'n't you, will you, wo'n't you, wo'n't you join the dance?"You can really have no notion how delightful it will beWhen they take us up and throw us, with the lobsters, out to sea!"But the snail replied "Too far, too far!", and gave a look askance--Said he thanked the whiting kindly, but he would not join the dance.Would not, could not, would not, could not, would not join the dance.Would not, could not, would not, could not, could not join the dance."What matters it how far we go?" his scaly friend replied."There is another shore, you know, upon the other side.The further off from England the nearer is to France--Then turn not place, beloved snail, but come and join the dance.Will you, wo'n't you, will you, wo'n't you, will you join the dance?Will you, wo'n't you, will you, wo'n't you, wo'n't you join the dance?"
Through the Looking-Glass is next.
