When I read Alice In Wonderland as a child, I had no idea about the effects of magic mushrooms, nor do I now. So, whether or not the book or film is about such matters remains beyond my scope of reality. However, I seriously doubt that a children's book portrayed anything related to drugs. For, it is actually the audience and reader who have taken Alice on such an adventure outside her own.
I would recommend Alice In Wonderland, to children, teens and adult alike. For, it can be a very fun read with a lot of inspiration for one to throw in their own imagination along the way. However, unlike the new 3D movie, the book remains a classic. While, individuals watching the movie who have never read the book may, at times, be confused about the story in and oif itself. As it appears to be more about the Mad Hatter rather than Alice and her adventures in Wonderland.
While the setting is both colorful in book and film, the book does a better job in allowing one to create their own imaginative wonderland. However, while the film is limited in such regard, it remains very colorful and entertaining nonetheless.So, regardless of the limitations which one might find in the movie, the book remains a great read as it has throughout time.
Although, if one had not read the book character development may be limited in the movie; However, in the book the author does a great job of both character development and foreshadowing other events yet to come. In addition, the author does a good job of making one feel as if one were actually Alice. As such, it is often easier for readers to place oneself in her role than when watching the film.
To this end, anyone who has never read the book need do so. For, a great deal more entertainment can be had by reading the book, whether or not one has seen the film. For book and film, while similar are as different as night and day. Therefore, if one needs something to do on a slow afternoon, reading Alice In Wonderland just may be the ticket.
