I would like to start this book review by thanking the Author, Publisher and NetGalley for allowing me to read this well written, laugh out loud book in exchange for an honest unbiased review. My opinions of this book have not been influenced in anyway by the fact that I received it for review purposes.
The book tells the story of what happens to Alice when she spots & follows a a flustered-looking white rabbit called Dave calling for a referendum down a rabbit hole on the 23rd of June 2017. It follows her journey through the strange new land she emerges in, where up is down, black is white, experts are fools and fools are experts… During her journey through the strange new land of Brexit she meets characters such as Corbynpillar (who sits on a toadstool smoking his hookah and being no help to anyone); Humpty Trumpty (perched on a wall he wants the Mexicans to pay for); the Cheshire Twat (who likes to disappear leaving only his grin, a pint, and the smell of scotch eggs remaining); and the terrifying Queen of Heartlessness who’ll take off your head if you dare question her plan for Brexit). Will Alice ever be able to find anyone who speaks sense.
I loved the authors satirical twist on Lewis Carole’s story Alice in Wonderland as well as his take on the Key players in Brexit including the idiocy of some of the things they said during the campaign.
This is a book that came at exactly the right time for me as I had recently read lots of books with some hard subjects in them and although this was about a very topical heavy subject due to its satirical nature I gave me some much needed light relief. It was also a very quick and easy read.
Although this is a book will date quickly due to the nature of its content it is still a book that I may re-read in the future as well as recommend to others and buy for people I know who I think may enjoy it.
It is for the reasons above that I have given this book a 5 star rating.
