After Alice

After Alice by Gregory Maguire, 273 pages
From the multi-million-copy bestselling author of Wicked comes a magical new twist on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, published to coincide with the 150th anniversary of Lewis's Carroll's beloved classic.  When Alice toppled down the rabbit-hole 150 years ago, she found a Wonderland as rife with inconsistent rules and abrasive egos as the world she left behind. But what of that world? How did 1860s Oxford react to Alice's disappearance?”  This was an odd story, but not really that much stranger than the original Alice stories.  It was fairly typical of Maguire and adult fans of fantasy and retellings of traditional children’s stories will enjoy it
