Top Customer Reviews
That being said, Alex in Wanderland, is a fun book that can work on the purely juvenile, face value level, or it can be elevated to a more adult level and scrutinized through the lenses of religion and world politics. Adults, look at it as a modern reworking of nameless ancient myths. You have the players: the thief, the protector, the priest, the prophecy, the goddess, the saviors, the “twins”…..it goes on an on. Plus there’s cute little jokes thrown in too. The goddess’ name is “Gladys”.
The opening scene was probably my favorite, though, because some of the things that Alexis, the wife, say to Alex are the exact same things that my husband says to me. Except, he’s the spend thrift and I’m the one scolding about the gadgets.
Overall, like any good myth, it’s about pushing the boundaries of the expectations that society and yourself have for you. That’s what happens.
