Product Description

Product Description

After accidentally killing everyone in her class, Alice Wonder is now a patient in the Radcliffe Lunatic Asylum. No one doubts her insanity. Only a hookah-smoking professor believes otherwise; that he can prove her sanity by decoding Lewis Carroll’s paintings, photographs, and find Wonderland’s real whereabouts. Professor Caterpillar persuades the asylum that Alice can save lives and catch the wonderland monsters now reincarnated in modern day criminals. In order to do so, Alice leads a double life: an Oxford university student by day, a mad girl in an asylum by night. The line between sanity and insanity thins when she meets Jack Diamond, an arrogant college student who believes that nonsense is an actual science.

More About the Author

I am honored to have three of my books on Amazon's Top 100 Customer Favorites in Kindle 2013. I don't even know how this happened, but it means you guys are awesome (for the lack of a better world.)

So, my name is Cameron - obviously. I write books I wish someone would have written, basically to amuse himself. Everything I do is for fun. I'm not a writer; I am a storyteller. And I didn't feel like writing was the only thing I was meant to do since I was a kid. I just had an idea, and jotted it down. It was full of mistakes and it was underdeveloped. But then I discovered there were so many incredibly loving and helpful readers out there who liked it. I learned so much since then and always work on improving my craft. I can't stop writing since the. It's addictive.

Other than that I'm the normal guy next door. I'm writing this wearing my pajamas, flip flops, and boxers. My life is complete. All I need is a Cuban cigar.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun look into INsanity :) 31 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Oh Alice in Wonderland retellings, i do love you. This book is no different, actually it may be slightly more insane than most. :)

Alice Wonder is stuck in an insane asylum after killing everyone in her class (makes sense), she spends her days either having electroshock therapy or talking to her potted plant. She feels sorry for her plant because it doesn't get enough sunlight. Poor plant. And poor Alice, she's been shocked so many times she can only remember up to about last week and then it goes blank. She can't remember why she killed those people, or how, or all of this wonderland nonsense the whole asylum seems to be buzzing with. However while she's been in the asylum, a serial killer has been slaughtering people and stitching their faces up so that they have a permanent grin. They call him The Cheshire Cat Killer. Alice is warned by another inmate, a hookah smoking professor (another serial killer) that she needs to stop him and prevent the rest of the Wonderland monsters from being released. He believes her to be the real Alice and she can therefore be the only one capable of stopping Cheshire and his gang. However The White Queen isn't so sure as to her identity and makes her question is she is the real Alice or not, or if it even matters? Especially with Constance's life potentially on the line!

I really enjoyed the insanity of this book and felt that the writing style even accompanied this into how the book was read and perceived. I love stories with serial killers and the fact that we had at the very least three made for an interesting, if not slightly weird read. Alice and The Professor PoV's were shown and it was very interesting to see how differently their minds worked in order to get the same thing.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars 8 April 2014
By Lauren
Format:Kindle Edition
I was fortunate enough to receive a copy of Insanity for review from the author, this will in no way effect my opinion of the book.

Insanity follows the adventure of Alice, a possibly mad girl, locked away in the underground of Radcliffe Lunatic Asylum.

Her only guidance of sanity is her friend, Tiger Lily, a potted flower and when she responds to Alice, Alice knows she's currently hallucinating.

Whilst dealing with her possible insanity, knowledge of killing all her class and a phobia of mirrors, she also has a lot more on her plate.

After a failed attempt at escaping, a fellow inmate of the Asylum - Piller the Killer - requests her help to become a hero by day and madwomen by night.

Outside of the Asylum, a serial killer is on a rampage, murdering girls and leaving them with grins sewn to their faces. The killer of course being The Cheshire Cat.

And it is Alice's job to save the recent girl being taken by him whilst solving the puzzles he's left behind, and most importantly the puzzle of herself. Is she The Alice? Or does Piller just hope so? And is Wonderland truly real, or are these people just mad?

So as you can see, there is a lot of elements to the story and it's very heavily on Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, which surprisingly is not something I've read, only seen the Disney version.

I learnt a lot about Lewis Carroll's (sorry I can't refer to him as just Carroll or my mind is going to start thinking we're talking about The Following television series and combining the two would end drastically) world he built, or well in this case, saved.

4.0 out of 5 stars Weird and Wacky 30 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
A retelling of the Alice in Wonderland Story. Alice Wonder is in an insane asylum after, apparently, killing everyone in her class. I'm not sure if she is really responsible for the murders and the book didn't clear that up for me. Alice can't remember how, or why she killed her classmates. While she's been in the asylum, someone has been killing people and stitching their faces up so that they have a permanent grin. The killer has been named The Cheshire Cat. In the asylum, Alice meets a hookah smoking professor who also happens to be a serial killer. He's convinced she's the real Alice from Wonderland and the only person capable of stopping the Cheshire Cat.

This was one of the weirdest books I've ever read. The author incorporated most of the characters from Alice in Wonderland but changed things up. I loved the facts about Lewis Carroll that were scattered throughout the book, for example, I didn't know that Alice in Wonderland was originally called Alice's Adventures Under Ground. There was plenty of mystery; who is Jack Diamond and why is he following Alice? Is Alice the real Alice? By the end of the book I still didn't know, I guess I'll have to read the second book to find out. It was a wacky and fun read. I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys retellings of fairy tales, or fans of Alice in Wonderland.

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
