Alice

29 June 2013

One of my favourite set of books is Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass. They are completely off the wall and funny, but have a point at the same time.

I also love the way that many other authors have taken the books, written by Lewis Carroll, and then adapted them into their own take on the story. Several years ago I read a book by Frank Beddor called The Looking Glass Wars which painted a war-torn Wonderland where the main character, Alyss, was trapped in our world, SyFy put their spin on the books in a mini-series which put a science fiction spin on the books.  Recently in the cinema we had Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland which simply was very Tim Burton.

Today I spotted another version that is coming curtesy of ABC called Once Upon a Time in Wonderland which puts Alice into a Victorian setting, however in a hospital as doctors try to cure her delusional memories of Wonderland.

It looks like a really interesting concept, I hoping that it will be repeated at some point in the UK.
