Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass - Lewis Carroll Carroll's brand of nonsense just ain't my thing. I respect that a lot of people feel differently, but I cannot abide his absolute nose-dive into the abstract that feels like it's supported by hot-air. Honestly? I was just bored by his writing. And I didn't like Alice - she was so flat and terribly middle-class, but without anything else to recommend her to me.
