This review may contain what you might consider spoilers. It contains a confession from me.
I confess that I added this to my "to-read" list because A) I am a cover whore B) I am a title slut and C) I love Alice in Wonderland....
I finished this book a bit ago...it was good. Yeah, I wish that I could say more but honestly, it took me so long to actually get into the book that I read another book (or two) in between the chapters and did an asston of school work because I just could not get myself in the state of mind for this book. There is a turning point once Alyss returns to Wonderland but until then, the book is just a drag.
I really hate that I cannot give this book a better quality review. I will probably read the next in the series...I don't know if it is because I am A) OCD and the thought of not finishing the series makes me crazy or B) because the ending actually saved the book and I am interested to know what is happening. It might be a combination of both.
I don't feel it is fair to only give this book 2 stars because it is worth more. Maybe I was just having some focusing issues or something at the time I decided to read it....All of the effort and thought put behind not only the characters (Alyss rather than Alice etc) but also into the weapons, looking glasses, and imagination capabilities. Its an interesting story line and concept...just slowly executed.
and for that my dear book, you are rewarded:
|I still hold some hope for the series.|
