Alice in wonderland



I just did what I do best. I took your little plan and I turned it on itself. Look what I did to this city with a few drums of gas and a couple of bullets. Hmmm? You know… You know what I’ve noticed? Nobody panics when things go “according to plan.” Even if the plan is horrifying! If, tomorrow, I tell the press that, like, a gang banger will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it’s all “part of the plan.” But when I say that one little old mayor will die, well then everyone loses their minds!

The above words from Joker in the movie ‘Dark Knight’ best summarize the effect Alice in Wonderland had on me when I read it the first time at the age of 12.

I had vowed not to read a book review again for few more months to come, as I had the chance to be the judge for a 'Book Review Contest' for around 175 entries.

Though the role was interesting, it kinda started getting monotonous. Your review was a welcome break! You have very well balanced perspective and there is no sign of prejudice.

Also the kind of books you have reviewed are close to my heart. One might laugh to know i still am a fan of Oz series;)

And Alice In Wonderland takes me down the verdant memory lane. I used to insanely wait for the series of shows i can watch on DD on every Sunday. Sigh! Gone are those days.

Very nice review.... loved many of the conversion in the book.. one of them you already mentioned in your review..
Another classic line from the book which I loved the most is this "if you don't know where you are going any road will get you there." :)
