"Alice" disappoints the second time around
on 3 July 2012
I first read this as an adolescent and remembered it as a wonderful book. This time round I wasn't as entertained. Despite the true story of the women's march, I found it lacked drama. By the end of the book, I was bored by the lists of businesses the "heroine" was setting up and wanted to know about her family life. All we were told was that there were a couple of children but, apart from a fleeting appearance, we learned nothing about them.
