Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

The story of Lewis Carroll's Alice is turned upside down as Ada, a neighbor and friend, also falls down the rabbit hole into Wonderland. Afterwards, life progresses for those aboveground, some of whom start looking for both girls. Maguire creatively adapts the classic tale, mixing whimsy with science as he finds a way to work in Charles Darwin and his research on natural selection and an American abolitionist into the narrative. Teenagers will feel comfortable reading about well-known characters such as the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, and the Queen of Hearts. This sense of familiarity, along with the brisk pace of the novel, will help readers through the often challenging vocabulary. They may also enjoy references to literary works from Dante and Shakespeare to J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. As in the source material, there is great language play and there is no shortage of clever riddles. The secondary characters are just as fun, and teens may identify with Lydia, the older sister who is happy to be rid of Alice for the day while mourning the loss of her mother. With an open ending, this could easily become another popular series opener like Wicked (HarperCollins, 1995). VERDICT Teens who enjoy reimagined tales, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, or any of Maguire's previous works will line up to read his newest creation.-Carrie Shaurette, Dwight-Englewood School, Englewood, Nα(c) Copyright 2011.

Review

“Thoughtful and disconcertingly memorable…Ada, Alice’s best friend, also falls down a rabbit hole into a phantasmagorical realm where she too is tossed and bossed about by strange creatures who delight in clever, frustrating wordplay…A feast for the mind…readers will ruminate on it long after turning the last page.” -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Maguire firmly sets Wonderland in time and place and weaves an intricate web of symbolism and allegory…The novel is full of the magic, wonder, and fresh twists that his fans have come to expect, and Maguire-and Wonderland-lovers alike will enjoy this fantastic return.” -- Booklist (starred review)

“Continuing his tradition of rewriting fairy tales with an arch eye and offbeat point of view, Maguire turns his attention to Lewis Carroll and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. . . . A brilliant and nicely off-kilter reading of the children’s classic, retrofitted for grown-ups―and a lot of fun.” -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“[Maguire’s] playful vocabulary may be Carroll-esque, but his keen wit is closer to Monty Python, with a fine, unforced sense of play… his erudition is a joy, his sense of fun infectious.” -- Joe Hill, New York Times Book Review

“In one vexing day, Ada, Lydia, and Miss Armstrong must adapt to deal with their circumstances and find new facets of themselves. Maguire fans should be pleased with his take, at turns clever and philosophical, on the Lewis Carroll classic.” -- Library Journal

“The author of Wicked, the beloved retelling of the Wizard of Oz, has done it again. In honor of Alice and Wonderland’s 150th anniversary, Gregory Maguire is offering a new perspective on the classic tale… We guarantee you’ve never imagined Alice and Wonderland quite like this.” -- InStyle (Book Club Selection)

“Through means of jokes, puns, and slightly scandalous ditties, combined with the elevated vocabulary that was very common in Victorian literature, Maguire evokes both the time period and Carroll himself… this book is a wonderful companion to Lewis Carroll’s classic tales.” -- New York Journal of Books

“AFTER ALICE will inspire readers to think anew about both historical realities and classic fantasies.” -- Bookreporter.com

“Maguire plays with the ancient archetypes at work in Wonderland while injecting them with fresh perspective.” -- Entertainment Weekly

“Maguire’s style takes on an almost lyrical quality. In After Alice Maguire masterfully mimics the quick, witty, and often nonsensical dialogue of Carroll’s original story.” -- Manhattan Book Review

“[S]tunningly clever in its conflation of fairy tales, the mix and match of characters, woven throughout with references to philosophical ideas, the social issues of the day, and attitudes of the time…Maguire impressively channels Carroll’s penchant for humorous wordplay, literary nonsense, and logic games.” -- Boston Globe

“Gregory Maguire has done it again! Just as he did with Wicked, Maguire has turned the beloved children’s tale Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland into an adult world with real problems and real rules yet still full of magnificent possibilities.” -- The Arched Doorway

“This new expedition into Wonderland promises a bit of history, a touch of adventure and a dazzling amount of imagination.” -- Stuart Magazine
