Book Hunters in Brief #127: Alice Through the Looking Glass

A younger, perhaps wiser, me would have been appalled by what Tim Burton et al have done to Lewis Carroll's Alice tales. As it is, I just shrug my shoulders and wonder in which ring of the inferno he'll be wiling away eternity  when I pass by him on my own deeper descent.

If you plan on seeing the movie, we sincerely hope you enjoy (no, really, we do), just don't imagine it has much to do with the original books.
