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.Back to all posts
