Publisher's Summary

From the multimillion-copy best-selling author of Wicked comes a magical new twist on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, published to coincide with the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll's beloved classic.
When Alice toppled down the rabbit hole 150 years ago, she found a Wonderland as rife with inconsistent rules and abrasive egos as the world she left behind. But what of that world? How did 1860s Oxford react to Alice's disappearance?
In this brilliant work of fiction, Gregory Maguire turns his dazzling imagination to the question of underworlds, undergrounds, underpinnings - and understandings old and new, offering an inventive spin on Carroll's enduring tale. Ada, a friend of Alice's mentioned briefly in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, is off to visit her friend but arrives a moment too late - and tumbles down the rabbit hole herself.
Ada brings to Wonderland her own imperfect apprehension of cause and effect as she embarks on an odyssey to find Alice and see her safely home from this surreal world below the world. If Eurydice can ever be returned to the arms of Orpheus or Lazarus can be raised from the tomb, perhaps Alice can be returned to life. Either way, everything that happens next is After Alice.

Critic Reviews

"Kellgren does impressive work, animating each peculiar voice to differentiate and entertain.... She's an exquisite example of a narrator who uses all her strengths and who isn't afraid of being expressive and dramatic." ( AudioFile)

Not a fan of this one

I am normally a Gregory Maguire fan, but this book was a waste of time. I kept waiting for something to happen that would differentiate it from any of the original Alice story, or for anything substantial to happen at all. He just implanted another character that followed the same path as Alice. The side story did nothing to pick up the pace of this one. My least favorite of Maguire's works.

So boring

I was not expecting this to be so heavy to listen to. It was a chore and not a treat. The narrators had erratic volumes to the point where some of them hurt my ears they were so loud compared to others. I didn't enjoy this one.
