This one I love. I don’t particularly like the story. Never read the book (and still don’t intend too), and there are quite a few things I probably didn’t get/understand, but still: it’s a magnificent world with pretty multifaceted creatures. Which is just a fancy way of saying they are all mad … a perfect bridge to a quote from the movie:
The Mad Hatter: Have I gone mad?
[Alice checks Hatter’s temperature]
Alice: I’m afraid so. You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.
And my favorite quote:
The Mad Hatter: I’m investigating things that begin with the letter M.
