Splintered is the most unique retelling I've ever read.If you haven't guessed it yet,this is a retelling of Alice in Wonderland.I loved the New Wonderland the author created in this book and I can't wait to see what happens next.
First of all,the cover is gorgeous.I just had to say that first and get it out of the way.I think it represents the book completely.I literally felt as if I was living everything.Everything felt so real.I have to admit that I loved this twisted version of Wonderland more than the real Wonderland.It's just more interesting and fascinating.I also loved the plot and found it really clever.It was truly amazing.The way the author twisted the facts and everything.I was also really impressed with the writing.
I decided to give it 4.5 stars because I was a bit disappointed when the end came and I discovered that Jeb forgot everything.But if you think about it,that's what it was supposed to happen...so we can jump right into the next book.And I'll say it again.I'm not a fan of love triangle and I believe there's a love triangle coming.It's pretty obvious.But...I'm team Morpheus.At first I was team Jeb but...Morpheus is just so mysterious and dark.I just can't pass that up.
And now let's talk a bit about the characters.
Alyssa:Our main character who is Alice's great-great-great granddaughter.Hope I got that right.She has a strong spirit in my opinion,but she's afraid that she'll go insane like her mother.At first she denies everything and wants to believe that the things that happen to her aren't real.But soon...she does what she was supposed to do from the beginning.That sounded a bit dramatic but...okay.
Jeb:His Alyssa's crush and he's really protective of Alyssa.He's an artist and if you haven't guessed it already...he's handsome...and hot.And he has a lip piercing.I have to admit that Alyssa is lucky to have a boy like him with her!
Morpheus:Oh...Dark,mysterious,typical bad boy.He's the bad boy of the story and after everything that happened in the book...I shouldn't have wanted him to be with Alyssa...But I just can't help it.I always fall for the bad boys.
If you love retellings like I do and you haven't read this beautiful book yet...go pick it up.No need to tell you that I can't wait to get my hands on the sequel...
