So, I never read the original "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," so all I had to go on was the old Disney cartoon and Tim Burton's movie (which I love!) And what did I think about this book?? Well, I thought it was awesome! It was a very interesting and cool take on the original with a very dark twist. It was almost like a the horror movie version Alice in Wonderland playing in my head! That's how dark and creepy it was! But guess what...I LOVE horror so I loved that about the book! I wouldn't dub this book horror, per se, though, because it wasn't. It's just the scenes and the creatures that played in my head that were uber creepy.
Talking about twists...there was a twist at the end of the book that I did not see coming! It was pretty...wow. And I love surprises!
As for the main character herself, Alyssa was a very strong, if not a little curious ;) But all humans are curious by nature, right? She was a bit stubborn too, but I really liked her. I thought she was a great character, and quite relatable, too. And then there's Jeb...gods, he was HOT-MAZING! I adored him and how sweet and protective he was! Morpheus though, he frustrated me sometimes. Don't you just hate it when a guy makes you swoon and then 3 seconds later you just feel like punching him in the throat? Yep, that was my problem with him. And if you must know, I am officially on Team Jeb ;)
Last words: It was a fantastic read and I recommend to those who are fans of Alice in Wonderland (like I am) or just plainly love retellings. One things for sure though: You will never see Alice in Wonderland the same way again.
Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it? If not, what do you think? Does it sound like something you might want to read? Leave me a comment! :)
