REVIEW

I did not enjoy this book, so much so, that I had to give it up. It was a constant burden on my “currently reading list” and I needed it to go away. I really tried, but Alice in Wonderland must not be my thing. I managed to get through the first half of the book, when I couldn’t take it anymore. The art style, while beautiful in stand-alone images, was quite busy in the whole composition. Although that alone would have been an issue I could get through, the story itself was irritating. I can’t even get myself to watch the entirety of the Disney movie Alice in Wonderland, so I don’t know why I bothered with this one. It was most likely a case of incompatibility.

One thought on “The Complete Alice In Wonderland

  1. I’m also not much into Alice, but I do like various retelling (and there are many). As for this story – the graphic was nice, other than that there was nothing original about it.
