From the multi-million-copy bestselling author of Wicked comes a magical new twist on Lewis Carroll’s beloved classic, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
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?
In After Alice, Gregory Maguire turns his dazzling imagination to the question of underworlds, undergrounds, underpinnings—and understandings old and new, offering an inventive spin on Carroll’s enduring tale. Ada, a friend of Alice’s mentioned briefly in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, is off to visit her friend, but arrives a moment too late—and tumbles down the rabbit-hole herself.
Ada brings to Wonderland her own imperfect apprehension of cause and effect as she embarks on an odyssey to find Alice and see her safely home from this surreal world below the world. If Eurydice can ever be returned to the arms of Orpheus, or Lazarus can be raised from the tomb, perhaps Alice can be returned to life. Either way, everything that happens next is “After Alice.”

    This book made reconsider if I know English enough to read the books in this language... because I couldn’t understand must of it! I read in English must of my books and I really enjoy them but not this one...
    I thought it was an Alice in Wonderland RETELLING! Is not! Is most of the life of the people around Alice.
    I disliked the plot and the characters and the constant remainder of ‘Alice was here a minute ago’ or ‘Alice is always missing ‘ Omg!
    So end up DNFing this book and that annoys me... I don’t like to do that at all but I rather move on another (hopefully) better book.
    My rating is 0.5/5
