Sypnosis:

Dorothy Gale has been to some strange lands, but none as unexpected as 19th century Oxford, England. Yet this is exactly where Dorothy meets Alice Liddell, a young woman with her own fanciful stories of a place called Wonderland. Alice finds herself pulled into Oz to face a new Wicked Witch, while Dorothy must follow the Wizard into a Wonderland civil war. Unknown to either girl though, plots have arisen against both faery lands, and they must uncover the hidden history shared between these lands if they are ever to set things right again.

Written with a faithful eye to the original Baum and Carrol classics, The Wizard In Wonderland reveals the secrets of Oz and Wonderland in a story that brings together both classic heroines in a new epic adventure.

Review:
This book is the very first fantasy book that I, in this case, read as an adult (excluding those children books ofcourse, haha). I’m not really a fan of it, but I just wanted to try. Who knows, I might love it like how I love suspense/mystery books aight?

So when the author, Ron Glick approached me in twitter asking if I would be interested in reviewing his books, I got curious, so I went directly to his website and browse all his books. I am a great fan of greek and roman mythology or anything that has to do with gods and goddesses and I noticed that he also has that kind of books. But I haven’t read such kind of books yet, but instead, indulged to movies. In any case, I could have picked such book eh? But damn, I got curious on the fantasy books instead.

The 2 popular girls, Dorothy and Alice, in one story! Exciting right? So tell me, who wouldn’t get that curious eh? So right then and there, I messaged the author and told him the book that I’ve picked. Sadly, it’s in series, and I’m not really that patient to read such a long story. But my curiosity failed me. Haha, which ofcourse, I’m thankful for.

From the very beginning, I can’t help but salute the author for he uses very easy to grasp words. So those bookish out there whom just like me, where English is not their native language, I assure you guys that you could read this story without any concern of being lost or in need for a dictionary.

I also like how he explained and introduced each character, which is really good in my case since I’m not really that familiar with the two stories, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Having said that, I’m not really sure if the book is related or the same on the two stories I mentioned. 😉

I really love the story. Love the idea of merging Oz with Wonderland, a two different settings in one story. But to tell you honestly, there’s ofcourse a little “thing” in this story that I didn’t like. I don’t know, but in its few chapters, I found myself confused. Well, that didn’t last long ofcourse, for when I approached the last few chapters, all we’re at pace. But dang! I was pushed in a cliff, this is the reason why I don’t like reading series. Now, goodluck to me, for it will sure make me feel like a dog who can’t pee. I need to have a copy on the second book! (as in now!)

And hey there guys! I just had a visit to the author’s Facebook page and was delighted to know that he’s (author) currently writing a movie script for this book. Oh my! So excited.

I think I don’t need to elaborate why I only gave this story a 4-star rating eh? But even if that’s the case, I am still highly recommending this to everyone. But before that, please hear this little advice of mine, “secure first all the books in this series before reading it” or else, you’ll suffer the same fate that I currently am, haha!

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
