Captivating
Reagan Through the Looking Glass (Hacking Wonderland Book 1) - Allyson Lindt,Daqri Bernardo

This original twist on the Wonderland story is fast-paced and full of action, intrigue, adventure, suspense, and even a bit of romance. It is a hacker tale, but it isn't so full of tech speak as to be distracting. I'm probably the most technologically challenged person that I know and I had no problem understanding what was happening on the cyber side of things. The characters are interesting and developed and the story kept me guessing from the beginning. Reagan (Alice) has no idea just how far down the rabbit hole she's going to have to go or who she should trust on her journey. She's torn between two men in this dangerous game and they both have secrets, some bigger than others, and Reagan is stuck somewhere in the middle. Too much more would give spoilers and this is one that shouldn't be spoiled for anyone. I highly recommend this captivating story to anyone who enjoys the genre.

Alice im Wunderland & Alice hinter den Spiegeln // Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass
Alice im Wunderland & Alice hinter den Spiegeln - Floor Rieder,Lewis Caroll,Christian Enzensberger

German and english review

 

Ich glaube ich hab jede Version der Filme gesehen, die es im Moment gibt und trotzdem haben mich beide Geschichten total überrascht und im Fall von Hinter den Spiegeln, war alles vollkommen neu für mich und nicht das was ich erwartet habe. Aber das sehe ich eindeutig nicht als etwas negatives.

 

Ich fand den Schreibstil unheimlich schön und vor allem einfach zu lesen (was nicht immer der Fall ist, bei solchen Klassikern). Die Story war so interessant und einfallsreich (gerade im zweiten Teil, die Anlehnung an ein Schachspiel, von dem ich absolut keine Ahnung habe, es aber trotzdem wunderbar funktioniert hat), teilweise ein bisschen verwirrend aber ich finde, dass macht den ganzen Charme dieser Welt aus, in die wir zusammen mit Alice eintauchen. Die Welt ist verwirrend, ein bisschen frustrierend aber unheimlich interessant, genauso wie jeder der einzelnen Charaktere.

 

Gerade in dieser Version der Bücher, fand ich die Zeichnungen einfach total schön und neu.

 

Alles in Allem, waren beide Geschichten, ein wirkliches Abenteuer, dass ich richtig genießen konnte und das ich nur weiter empfehlen kann.

I think I have watched every movie version that is out at the moment and still, both stories really surprised me and in the case of Behind The Looking Glass, everything was new to me and so different from what I expected. But that is in no way something negative.

 

I thought the writing style was so beautiful and very easy to read (which isn't always the case when it comes to classics like that). The story was so interesting and imaginative (especially the second story, the referring to a chess game, that I have seriously no clue about, but it still worked wonderfully.), in parts it was a bit confusing but I think that's part of the charm of the world that we get to experience together with Alice. The world is confusing, a bit frustrating but mostly very interesting, just like every single one of the characters in it.

 

In this version of the books, I especially loved the drawings, so beautiful and new.

 

All in all, both stories were an adventure that I really enjoyes and that I can really recommend.

Through the Looking Glass review
Through The Looking Glass - Lewis Carrol

Lewis Carroll has always been one of my favorite authors. Through the Looking Glass is a great book that includes adventure, imagination, creativity, and silliness. I would have this in my classroom library for 4th or 5th grade. The guided reading level is T and the Lexile level is 910L.

Abducted Part 1: Through the Looking Glass
Abducted Part 1: Through the Looking Glass - Evangeline Anderson A great introduction to a new world...or worlds.
I can see this series becoming very addictive. Zoe the curvy earth girl is kidnapped by a half breed alien to be traded. Sarden is huge, has horns and is sexy as the devil she imagines him to be.
We're left hanging at the end, will she win him over or will she be traded off once the ship is fixed? I need more now.
