it was ok
bookshelves: fantasy, 2009, library-books-read, young-adult

In rating The Looking Glass Wars, I'm going by the GoodReads definitions of the stars. Two stars means "It was ok". I admit that I've never read the Lewis Carroll novels about Alice in Wonderland and the Disney movie was way too disturbing, so I guess I'm not an Alice fan to begin with. With that out of the way, I found Beddor's retelling of the classic to be dull and flat. The only parts that caught my interest were the scenes of Alyss in England and how she transitions from Alyss Heart to Alice Liddell. I thought she was much better as Alice.

If I had a young daughter or niece who was an Alice in Wonderland fan, I'd consider gifting her with this book. However, it somehow didn't reach the little girl inside of me.
