But I suppose it all depends on the purpose of your book! Whether its intended for learning or for experienced latinists to simply enjoy. Or, of course, to just get a wider audience. These changes were made after some consultation with modern Latinists.

No qualifier. No excuse. Well, also Through the Looking Glass. And other examples of my inability to make decisions or commit in any way to anything. I currently have 18 copies of this book. But hey, it was a different year then, technically speaking.
How do I even review this? Just a heads up that my obsessive personality is going to become verrrrry clear as this review progresses. This is who I am, you guys. I was a member of the fandoms of some teen pop sensation or other for nearly ten consecutive years. Lots of pent up energy.
I have never picked this up without feeling instantly submersed in Wonderland. I firmly believe this is the most amazing and beautiful and confusing and curious setting of all time. Wonderland is my Hogwarts. I love Alice and her curiosity. She may also be my favorite character ever. Her reactions to everything are so, so funny.
Her curiosity always outweighs confusion and fear. I constantly pick up retellings only to be utterly disappointed. Like Heartless. Get out of here with your shoddy Carroll-stealing. Alice, an adult? Alice, engaged? But I do love the original animated Disney adaptation.
Honestly, the drug reading is simple and boring. And scrolling through countless quasi-psychedelic GIFs to find the actual ones was irritating, too. Enough, Tumblr. Alice in Wonderland carries as much or as little significance as you want it to. Just have fun with it. And please, for the love of God, stop applying your weird psychedelic edits to a Disney movie.
Note on the audiobook: This time around, I listened to the audiobook, to switch things up. Scarlett Johansson read it. I loved her funny accents and hated her overly-acted narration. A mixed bag. Bottom line: This is my favoritest and I doubt it will be dethroned anytime soon. Come at me, every other book.
