However as interesting as it was the obsessive tendencies I hold mooned over it for very short periods of time, and by the time she had gone I simply wouldn't keep up with it any longer. I lacked drive or motive at that pointing my life. Despite wishing I had been able to grasp it quicker I will happily say I have it now. So plain and simple ...
It's an Alice in Wonderland twist, called Pandora Hearts, with a main character by the name of Oz.

Oh my goooodnesss. I have a lot to say about this Deadman Wonderland. The other day I found the second volume at the library, and knowing that I ownedOh my goooodnesss. I have a lot to say about this Deadman Wonderland. The other day I found the second volume at the library, and knowing that I owned the first I decided I'd finally give it a go and checked it out (along with three others). It was last on my list because I had to actually get through the first volume before hand. And I knew that everyone said it was good, I'd heard so many awesome remarks about it. Even just the other day my friend, Nick, and I were sitting in the schools library and he said - randomly - "Deadman Wonderland is such a good anime". And while I'm obviously reading it and not watching it, I'm going to whole heartitly agree with him because OH MY GOSH. It truly is one of the better mangas I've picked up. I'm not to hard on mangas really, I don't think there's a need to be when they're all so creative, but Deadman Wonderland hits you right between the eyes and keeps up reading like the crazy page turners you know you are. And let me talk about the characters for a second, they're not who you think they are. A lot of the time when characters are introduced you know who they are straight off the bat, but this kind of feels like a real life kind of thing. It sounds strange, true, but let's take someone like ... Yo (favorite character of course, gah). You think you know who he is, his personality, his motives, you think he's just another prisoner, but daaaamn he's not. I'll leave the rest to your imagination, but basically Dee-double-d is amazing and five stars <3 ...more

Thing is reading this was easy, not just because its short and a kids book, but because its something everyone experiences. Maybe not wonderland itself but dreams in general. Don't tell me you haven't had some crazy notions before. You know the saying "Everyone's weird in their own way?" That's what I see in this book and the Cheshire-Cat's intelligent quote "We're all mad here." To say the least people see Lewis Carroll as this insane person, nothing but high on opium and having nothing to do with his time, so he wrote. That's not true, he summed up our life (especially our childhood) in just over 100 pages. The off the wall ideas, the imaginary friends and creatures, and where the act of boredom can take you! If anything he's a genius, like the Einstein of writing (: Point is, there's not surprise that it was brilliant and I'm glad to have finally read it! P.s. A lot of people back then were on opium, hint the hookah the caterpillar uses, but LC was also known to have a disease. 1 in a million as I'm told, they even named if Lewis Carroll disease, in which he was unable to see things at their normal dimensions. Instead thy were either bigger or smaller. In turn the DRINK ME and EAT ME bottle/cake(s).
Through the Looking-Glass: I had no idea how much of Alice in Wonderland was actually from the looking-glass instead. Of course it's the second book, more or less, but still the name isn't given much credit and most everything you see outside the original is all positioned and revolving around Wonderland, not her alternate universe through the mirror. I have to say it was a rather great book, as there is no surprise there, but I wasn't expecting it to be as great as AIW just because I'd never really heard hype about it, only figured that it was another name but a whole 'nother story. Either way it was really brilliant and the ending was great. I love all the poems (Jabberwocky has been my favorite since I was in 7th grade) and the stories and the songs that the characters so oddly burst into. Hah, it was wonderful ^^ No pun intended ;p
Overall there's no surprise that this was going to be rated 5 stars from the beginning, it quiet deserves it <3...more
