Oh wow! Just WOW! I never saw that ending coming.
Great read and a must to add to your must reads list, if you haven't already.
I was at our local group meeting last night and this book was brought up in the discussion. It has come highly recommended by a few of the members and it invoked a lively discussion. I came home and immediately went to the library catalog and requested it. I'm #23 on the wait-list. Wonder if I can stand waiting that long or if I will break down and buy it.
Alice is an interesting little girl - one who seems privileged and somewhat spoiled. I found her somewhat tedious and aloof and had a hard time connecting with her or really caring what happened. This is one of those books I kept looking at the page count to see how long it would take to finish.
I know there is lots of symbolism and other connections in the story and with the footnotes I had, it did make a bit more sense. Maybe a good annotated version would help me appreciate this story more.
