I don't like the original novel but I went into this hoping for a new perspective on the classic. I have appreciated some graphic representations of classic lit. when I didn't enjoy the originals. However, I found this plain tedious. Baker has chosen to use only dialogue with this retelling. Now this book is utter nonsense to begin with and taking out any and all narrative leaves us with a complete script of puns, riddles and talking in circles. I didn't want to finish it, but made myself do so. I'm also not fond of Baker's art; Alice looks downright ugly at times. So it really was a lose/lose situation for me. Only bright spot is this contains the poem "Jabberwocky", which I simply adore! ( )
