I can't help it. No matter how much I try, I can't seem to find what everybody does in Carroll's books.
All the "nonsense" is too much for me and at times is so puzzling that it become boring. The same happened with The Hunting Of The Snark.
I recommend Lewis Carroll only to people that already likes that style of writing. On contrary, if you want to read it only to try something new, you're wasting your time.
