Book: Alice in the Country of Hearts: Wonderful Wonder World
Illustrator: Soumei Hoshino
Translator: Beni Axia Conrad
Edition: First edition, book 2
In the sequel to the first Alice, we find our main character getting to better know the inhabitants of Wonderland. Identities, personalities, and motives are beginning to show for who and what they really are, giving Alice a better idea of what she has gotten into, or so she thinks.
I honestly do not have much to say about this one. It is good, but not as good as the first. Having read ahead, I can say that this book is more of continuing the set-up for things later in the series. It is still an enjoyable read, with enough action, character development, and intrigue to hold the reader’s interest. The plot holes that bugged me so much in the first book are absent in the second, leaving this reviewer’s questionable sanity intact for another week.
Overall, I give this book 4 pages, again only if you like or are interested in this genre. I would also give the warning that due to violent content and some innuendo, this is not for young children. Other than that, happy reading!
