Confession: I don't remember reading Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. I feel like I should. Perhaps it would help me understand more. I enjoyed the story, though I'm not dying to read it again or to keep reading the series. I rather liked the author's spin on the old classic. Maybe not because it was a particularly good spin, but because it was thorough and clever- change Alice's name, incorporate characters, give them power and weapons and enemies.

This book got me thinking a lot about imagination, power, and choice. Perhaps it's a bit idyllic, but I think we need a bit more imagination in our world. And I appreciated how they encouraged imagination and then shared it instead of capitalizing on it. Something to ponder.

A little language, if I remember correctly. No sex. Some violence, yes. But they're often machines.
