Title: Alice in the County of Hearts The Clockmaker’s Story
Illustrator: Mamenosuke Fujimaru
Having read one story about Alice and Julius and them being in a relationship I wasn’t so sure I’d enjoy this book as it was another take on them as a couple, yet I’m glad I decided to pick this up. This story takes place right at the start of Alice’s time there in Wonderland and started at the start of the relationship between Alice and Julius. It was not so random as the other book and followed a very logical flow and was simply sweet and romantic.
There isn’t much to the story plot wise when it comes to the deeper truths and mysteries of Wonderland save for a truth that has been known for a long time. All those of Wonderland have clocks instead of hearts in their chest. This is something that at the start of the story that Alice did not know and she learns it in this story which everyone was worried would cause her to want to leave Julius or Wonderland in general. Of course it doesn’t, but really despite not having any major reveals happening in this story it was still a good read.
Over all, I would give this a 4 out of 5 pages. It was a good read and vey sweet and romantic and the relationship between Julius and Alice makes sense and was cute and developed very well in this story. Really if you are looking for something like this it was an enjoyable quick read, as it took me less than an hour to read.
