Lewis Carroll: A Biography by Morton N. CohenI really enjoyed the start of this book, it began in chronological order, was interesting, well written and revealed insight into the beginnings of the man who wrote Alice in Wonderland. However, I felt it got drawn into the justification of Dodgsons behaviour towards children and only spiralled down from there. There was just so much in this, it was INCREDIBLY detailed, and i feel it just lost itself and became a jumbled mess of peoples names, letters and analysing all of his work. I took a break from reading this as I felt it became incredibly heavy, and just the longer I put it down, the less I wanted to pick it back up again- Ultimately my drive to leave no book unfinished made me set out to finish what I started. I feel if you have a big interest in this man, then this certainly is an interesting read, but to me who couldnt care either way, it was just a mess of facts and ultimately I kind of found his entire life boring. I felt like the author was trying to make you think kindly of him, and perhaps view him as stuck as a child himself, however I just do not feel at least bit interested in Dodgson and his life.
