Yesterday I went to see the new Alice in Wonderland or Alice in Underland film. I've never been to a 3D film before and it was different. Objects and characters seemed to fly into the auditorium.

My eldest daughter loved watching Alice in Wonderland videos,but I was never much of a fan. I had an illustrated copy of the book as a child, but much preferred to read Heidi or Little Women.I much preferred the pratical to the whimsical, but have to admit I enjoyd the film.

However, it took me away from the novel I am reading Scapegallows by Carol Birch about the life of Margaret Catchpole, an 18th century woman transported to Australia instead of being hung for stealing a horse.It is an exciting adventure and would make an excellent film.

  1. I enjoyed that book too, sue. i have jsut finished another of Carol Birch's called The Naming of Eliza Quinn. it is set during the irish famine so is very depressing but her narrative voices are superb.

    i went to see Avatar which i enjoyed very much, I'd like to see Alice too and will have to work on 'himself' to take me to see it.
