Alice in Wonderland by Nancy Christie
Books can take us to a whole new place. A world beyond our most wild imaginations. They provide a place to escape from reality.
That is what Alice relies on in this short story.
Alice has obligations at home that she does not want to deal with. She uses her books to escape from her reality and transport her into a whole new place.
I feel like Nancy Christie puts the reader inside the mind of Alice and you experience the insanity she is feeling.
It has a dark, heavy tone.
There were some parts where I wasn’t very sure what was going on, but the tone and the writing made me want to keep reading to find out how it ends.
