Title: Are you Alice?
Author/Illustrator: Ikumi Katagiri and Ai Nnomiya
Yes, I admit I have a thing and interest in the concept of Alice in Wonderland. I am not the most fond of the original text finding Alice to be rather stupid and dull but the world and the ideas surrounding the world are absolutely fascinating. It is a interesting world with interesting characters to play with to say the least.
Thus I picked up “Are you Alice? “which is a unique take on Alice in Wonderland with a guy who happened into wonderland and has been dubbed Alice and is forced into a game of “Kill the White Rabbit”. I was curious simply because of it being a male Alice but I am uncertain as to the story. A lot of this was set up and “Alice” learning who he is, and that he is Alice and what he is supposed to do as Alice. It has had some interesting concepts that make me curious as to the way it is going.
Over all the story is different and somewhat confusing at times, and honestly a little boring. It just did not capture my interest as other Wonderland stories have but I shall read the next book and see what comes of it, particularly as I have the second book from the library already.
Over all, with this short review, I would give the book a 2 out of 5 pages and say don’t waste your time at this point, but be on the look out for the review of the second volume as my opinion my change because sometime it is worth suffering through the boring and dull books or chapters go get to the really interesting bits of story.
