Пояснение.

Расшифровка записи
Susan: Sally, have you read “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”?
Sally: Yes. My mother read and loved it when she was younger and I have her copy. I loved it when I was younger, and even more now that I understand the metaphors and the irony.
Susan: Personally, I have a great love for the Caterpillar. And who is your favourite character from the book?
Sally: I think it is the Mad Hatter. His madness and playfulness helps me understand who I am or at least try to be as a person. What is your favourite passage from the book?
Susan: I love when the queen says “Sometimes I’ve believed in as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
Sally: My favourite passage is Alice’s conversation with herself as she falls down the rabbit hole. It was in that moment that I really fell in love with the quaint little girl named Alice.
Susan: Do you think that the book has any undertones, or do you merely love it as it is, a book written in an eccentric and witty style, full of twisted adventures?
Sally: I would say there are many witty, eccentric, slightly twisted books out there. Of course I think there are undertones. There are so many undertones in fact that I’m afraid the Alice book may become too outdated and cryptic for today's children.
Susan: Oh, no! I think of it as a contemporary book that can be enjoyed for years to come. I hope my children will read the same cherished copy I read and my mother read before me.
Sally: By the way, what is your favourite film adaptation of the Alice book?
Susan: I am not as familiar with the film adaptations as I am with the novel and musical interpretations. I quite like a music video that a friend of mine has done to the song “White Rabbit”, but I suppose my favourite Alice film is the Disney version.
Sally: Yes. I highly respect Walt Disney and his work, and I think the movie is well done. Though I much prefer the book itself, Disney was not afraid to add a little bit of himself to the film, which I respect him for.

I loved it when I was younger, and even more now that I understand the metaphors and the irony.
