    Audio CDÒ After Alice Kindle ¹ after book, alice epub, After Alice MOBILewis Carroll's Alice books are fun and clever and smart 'After Alice' is occasionally the first sometimes accidentally the second and never as much the third as it thinks it is This is a case of trying too hard that just ends up being rather uncomfortable to read Maguire tries to give stories to too many characters and ends up shortchanging them all in the process The conceit of following Ada when she follows Alice down the rabbit hole is interesting and could have been a wonderful story if Maguire had used the opportunity to view Wonderland through a different lens Ada starts out as an unimaginative and fairly groun

    Audio CDÒ After Alice Kindle ¹ after book, alice epub, After Alice MOBILewis Carroll's masterpiece Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite books of all time It works for both kids and adults on different levels and the Disney animated movie did it justice with the ponderings thoughts and musings of the characters within Wonderland After Alice from the author of Wicked The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West is about Ada a friend of Alice's who goes looking for after she's gone missing and falls into the rabbit hole after Alice In reading this novel I was jarringly reminded of why I picked up Wicked when it first came out in 1995 read two chapters and then placed it on my bookshelf where it sat for 20 years Why The author Gregory Maguire writes as though he's got a thesaurus sitting right beside his writing desk and yes that's an Alice reference He suffers from what students in Creative Writing

    Audio CDÒ After Alice Kindle ¹ after book, alice epub, After Alice MOBIlord christ but this was wordy and pretentious once I got past all that though I did enjoy the story at least a little bit and I have to say that there were some sentence gems tucked in among all the pomp and bullshit and that made it all worth it mostly and by mostly I mean not at all |I think I need to stay away from re imaginings for awhile this was a complete boreplus to be honest nothing really happened alice's friend ada went looking for her down the rabbit hole ran into some of the characters we are all familiar with such as the white rabbit the playing cards the flowers although in this case they were all bitchy red roses with name

    Audio CDÒ After Alice Kindle ¹ after book, alice epub, After Alice MOBII'm at a loss as to why this book has reviewed poorly; it's one of Maguire's best in my opinion Brilliant retelling and brilliant social commentary

    Audio CDÒ After Alice Kindle ¹ after book, alice epub, After Alice MOBII had hopes for this book but it was incredibly pretentious and took itself way too seriously There was a limited vocabulary very little by way of character development and reading it only brought images of hipsters to my mind sipping their Starbucks and scratching their beards while reading After Alice in an attempt to look intelligent

    Audio CDÒ After Alice Kindle ¹ after book, alice epub, After Alice MOBIThis review is for the audio version of “After Alice” by Gregory Maguire narrated by Katherine Kellgren Audio 3 Ms Kellgren is an animated exuberant narrator who is like a chameleon in the way she can easily slide from one voice to another Although she is so expressive and her vocal range is extraordinary her voice is also extremely piercing and pretentious I have listened to a few books now which are narrated by Brits but Ms Kel

    Audio CDÒ After Alice Kindle ¹ after book, alice epub, After Alice MOBIAs much as I geek out after all things Alice in Wonderland I must say this book was a hot mess It didn’t seem to me that Maguire could decide whether it was a retelling of the original or a commentary on Victorian life in the 1860’s Ada inadvertently follows Alice down the rabbit hole and spends the rest of the story in pursuit of her friend in Wonderland encountering many of the characters that Alice has already come across One redeeming uality was seeing a few familiar characters The adventure narrative alternates with what’s going on in the real world Alice’s sister and Ada’s governess searching for the girls The parallel narratives are so disconnected it’s tedious not to mention the two aforementioned characters are hardly likeableWe’re not dealing with the real life inspiration Alice Liddell here but the fictional Alice in a nonfictional Oxford with real characters like Charles Darwin I got the impressi
