I recommend Gears of Wonderland to anyone who has read the original Alice in Wonderland books and would like to revisit the mystical rabbit hole of adventureFirst off the cover of this book is incredibly awesome WOW seriously WOW As a graphic artist it just sang to me I also loved the coloring of the book pages being a beige y yellow not white to better match the aged warm feeling of the cover Really nice Great attention to the details there Gears of Wonderland is a retelling or really a revisit of Alice s previous journey to Wonderland Only this time it s not Alice it s James RiggsAfter a bad day at the office and a fight with his fiancee James takes off and seeks refuge at the apartment of his closest friend Melvin Unfortunately his friend is soon murdered and fearing he ll be next James flees the scene and is saved from impending harm by a mysterious white suit wearing stranger who tackles him and pushes him down a hole that appears just as mysteriously as James is about to hit the groundWhat happens from there is a grown up or grown older version of Alice s trip to Wonderland some centuries earlier This new version has replaced the older Gothic style with fantastical machinery enormous gravity defying airships and eually as amazing robotic technology very steampunk y and very cool Lahire the Knave of Hearts and the current ruler of the Wonderland Kingdoms is informed a stranger from the Otherworld has turned up in Wonderland and now there s an all out search and destroy mission to locate the intruderJames soon realizes he s in as much danger in this strange new world as he was in his own world With assistance from Kara who just so happens to be the Mad Hatters daughter and Torre a soldier of the Red Kings elite troops the Castle Brigade and who also turns out to be a great new friend James finds himself racing around all the strange lands and lost kingdoms of Wonderland trying to find Caterpillar who can help them determine who s trying to kill James and why During this search James begins to discover clues to his own identity and ultimately finds his true purpose in life along the wayAll in all the book was great But as awesome as it was in my opinion it just wasn t uite enough I liked the authors writing style and loved where he was going I found this Wonderland easy to believe and visualize and wanted to be immersed in his concept However I would have loved to see even of this fabulous machine driven steampunkish world I would have liked deeper character development and depth in the relationships I also think it could have done with fantasy and adventure and marvel oomph I still uite enjoyed reading Gears of Wonderland and I would totally recommend it to others

Alice in Wonderland is my favourite children s book of all time I ve read and re read it so often that I can uote entire passages by wrote As such I tend to be drawn to re interpretations and adaptions of the source material and their characters To whit America McGee s long waited for seuel Alice Madness Returns is a must play for those into console gamingI stumbled upon Gears of Wonderland by accident Having read Clockwork Fagin I was in the mood for a bit steampunk and Anderson s novel popped up in a random search The price was right and in light of the previous paragraph I took a puntOverall I m glad I did though Gears of Wonderland has some very apparent first novel issues his short stories and flash fiction asideGears of Wonderland follows James Riggs a guy who lives a normal life with a mind numbing job an overbearing boss and a demanding fianc e Then he witnesses the murder of his best friend Saved from the murderer by a strange man in a white suit James is cast down a hole and into a world he always believed was a kid s story WonderlandBut things have changed since Alice s visit The Knave of Hearts has seized the Heart throne conuered all of Wonderland with his steam powered technological marvels and rules the land with an iron fistAided by the Mad Hatter s daughter James journeys to discover why he has been brought to Wonderland and how the tattoo on his arm could be the key to Wonderland s salvation or its destructionSounds intriguing right There are all sorts of things to love about the book the interesting blend of steampunk albeit light the rationale for the Victorian world of Wonderland the progression of time and the characters post Alice and some truly fantastic new characters specifically the sky pirate Coulter TyrrelUnfortunately the plot is pretty tepid tired stuff Hardly as original as you might have hope In the interim years after Alice s visit the Knave of Hearts who stole the tarts or did he as the trial was never really finished has usurped the King of Hearts who fell gravely ill after the death of the memorable ueen of Hearts Following the Knave s ascension to the throne and aided by intel from a less than reliable Cheshire Cat has overthrown all of the kingdoms of Wonderland there are six kingdoms in this version of Wonderland Hearts Diamonds Clubs Spades Red and White And as you could easily guess he s become a despotic tyrant in the processEnter James who finds his way to the resistance all too easily within 2 pages after entering Wonderland and suddenly his mysterious past is resolved into a messiah esue complex as he sets out to unseat the KnaveNo bonus points for guessing who wins While we re at it can someone explain why almost all post Alice novels in Wonderland find it dysfunctional and usually ruled by a new tyrant that has to be defeatedAdditionally the characters while entertaining and sometimes exciting aren t very multi dimensional What you get is what you see Very few of the characters with the exception possibly of Torre have any real character development or substantial shifts in their beliefs or substance Re invention or subversion of known characters such as the Cheshire Cat and White Rabbit takes the place of any honest development It s an entertaining enough read but is predictable and leaves some of the minor plot points maddeningly unresolved Kara s backstorysubplot specifically Kara the daughter of the Mad Hatter and a sky pirate naturally has been searching for her mother said pirate for years Part of the reason she accompanies James to the Caterpillar is to gain knowledge of where to find her mother After going through all the hassle and danger Then the subplot is dropped like a hot potato except for a coda at the end that euates to well maybe someday I ll find her Now I realise that Anderson may well be storing up for book two but a simple toss away at the start would have been enough Fixating a character on a subplot that is then simply abandoned is a bit annoying for the reader Additionally the reuisite romantic subplot seems to stall and go nowhere uicklyMy other gripe is that I found myself constantly thinking that many of the key moments had been lovingly borrowed from other books The trip to the Caterpillar for example is straight out of The Princess Bride The sky pirates felt awfully like Stardust Nothing wrong with a bit of loving reference but too much just makes me wonder what else is going to be pinchedOn the whole I enjoyed the book though it definitely has flaws I d read a follow up but probably only recommend this to people with a true affection for Wonderland35

Anderson Read & Download Gears of Wonderland E and into a world he always believed was a kid's story Wonderland But things have changed since Alice's visit The Knave of Hearts has seized the Heart throne conuered all of Wonderland with his steam powered technological marvel. To begin with I didn t like the main character James is sort of well to be honest a bit of a spineless whiny bitch He hates his life he can t stand up to his overbearing uptight girlfriend to be honest getting into Wonderland is the best thing that ever happens to him Overall the book was ok I would recommend it to anyone on an Alice in Wonderland kick or someone somewhat into steam punk If you re a hardcore steam punk fan I m not sure if you re going to like it because it didn t focus as much on that aspect The story itself was reasonably predictable and to be honest I didn t hate the bad guy He was misguided but deep down thought he was doing the right thing It s a nice read but overall not something I will ever pick up again off my shelf Oh and James does grow on you a little bit but he s still a whiny bitch by the end of the book not as spineless any
