Who can not love a retold Alice in Wonderland fairy tale?! I purchased the books via Kindle - the price was cheap I figured even if I didn't enjoy it, that I wasn't out that much.

Book 1 was AWESOME. The characters were easy to get into as was the story line and Pilla the Killa was just a hoot all the way through. A hookah smoking caterpillar who is also a detective and a serial killer -- and like Indiana Jones, he can strangle people with his hookah hoses.

I laughed through about half of the book

{My thoughts} – {date entire series completed} – {12.13.2018}

I’m not sure if I have ever listed all the reasons that I enjoy {fairytale} like books. I am one mega fan of them. I love each and every retelling I have read at this point. {Cameron Jace} has become one of my favorite authors over the years because of his {unique} ability to spin {classic} tales into something {new} and {incredible}. I have read these particular books in the past and enjoyed them. However, I had not been able to compl

Just brilliant

Hooked by the first chapter. Such an unusual but riveting story. Love how it draws you in so you want to keep reading more. Such an exciting series of books. Can't wait to start book 4.

I don't know what happened here. The premise seemed so interesting but the execution of it fell short. Happy I didn't have to pay money for my copy.

Insanely addictive and amazing! I love the way it draws you into history with real facts about Lewis Carroll, the seamless integration of Wonderlandian psychosis’s and the ‘saner real world’ madness, and I am STILL quoting Professor Pillar! It is immersive reading at the less and more interesting than not, you start to feel that your own little quirks that are not so sane, seem perfectly acceptable.

I bought this because it was being sold a something the late, dear Terry Pratchett would have written. Couldn't have been further from the truth and I was very disappointed. The storylines are simple but rambling. The overall premise has potential but the execution leaves something to be desired. And then very sad to find that the story doesn't wrap up at the end of the third book. this is really stretching it too far.

Doesn't do it for me.

I love the "Grim Prequels" this series falls flat for me. I respect the efforts by the author to tie in the ubiquitous tale of A!ice and her friends, but just could not get behind this project. I "bought" the first three books for free, and was glad that I did. Now I know that Cameron doesn't always hit it out of the ball park with me.

I absolutely fell MADLY in love with this series!

Amazing series. Written excellently. I can't believe how much of the behind the scenes like places and addresses, are real. A lot of work has gone into it and I can't appreciate it more. WE'RE ALL MAD HERE!

Jace keeps the suspense up...

Through the first three and on to the fourth and so on. Who doesn't love Alice in Wonderland and want to see it modernized? Is Alice actually Alice!? Is she just plain mad!? Are we all!? Who knows? I'm certainly hooked.

Loved these books!!

Worth every penny spent for the books (n then some) Adventure, madness, and !mystery that keeps you on your feet as you go along with the incredible characters. I can't wait to read the next book!!
Dec 05, 2017 rated it it was amazing

So happy to know my definitions of sane and insane are shared by more than I!! Maybe the reason I've not "grown up yet" but I am always on the side of good, as is our matchless heroine in this series. I must have it in hard copy...

This was an amazing adaptation of life after Alice in wonderland and who knows it could be true. Alice in wonderland is one of my favorite stories. Lights up the imagination and this series does as well. Can’t wait to get on with the fourth book!!

The second two books of the series do help establish the characters much more. The cliffhanger was not unexpected but I do want to read the rest of the story.

Weird but interesting

Well if the name doesn't give it away these books are weird and a bit mad. But if you like that you will probably like These books.

*~Insanity Book 1~*

What a wonderfully Frabjous book. I think I got that right? Lol. A delightfully mad look into a famous book! Well, that rhymed! Anyways, I felt like I was trying to keep up with my sanity '. I mean that in a great way! Following Alice and the Pillar on their crazy train adventures was the best imagination hijack I've had in awhile!

I love that Alice is delightfully mad, yet the most sane of the characters! Or is she sane? Insane? Mad? We shall see!

This takes u on a Wonderland rollercoaster!!!

Is Wonderland based on fact or fiction? Was it a real place or a figment of imagination? What if Wonderland is real? And all the characters real people? Are they sane or insane or a little bit of both? Where would they be? Locked up or out on the world? Could one of them be sitting next to you now? And what about Alice? Was she insane, a victim, or a hero? These are all relevent questions that have been asked but never answered. Was Lewis insane or ge
