    "This is an interesting book; it has a obvious fantasy slant, but it weaves in real-world facts and locations based around the real Disney theme parks. The concept is neat, but I found the writing to be a little too dumbed down, considering the subject matter."

    "This is such a great read for those adult fans of Disney characters. It is very interesting to see how the author puts the storylines together. I have read two books in the series so far and recommend it for anyone looking for some mature content focused around the Disney environment."

    "This is not a Disney book. It was only suggested because it has Disney in the name. Very disappointed in this result and wasted time looking at the book."

    "While not my favorite book, it does have some interesting themes. I mean...a book about meeting in Disneyland and share their problems as well as become friends? It's bizarre...but original. It was very well written and it does keep you interested. I'd recommend giving it a read if you have some down time on you hands. It's a fun little nugget."

    "Growing up, my daughter was a big Lewis Carroll fan. Now that she's older I decided to buy her this more adult version of Alice's Adventures Through the Looking Glass and my family's internet usage went down. That must mean she hasn't been on her laptop as much because she can't put down this book! She said it's not a remake or reimagining or anything of the originals but rather an additional aspect to the world in which Alice lives. Good job!"

    "A good story. However not really in the Disney book line. It is unpolished in some ways. That shows a lack of effort from the author. "

    "This book appears on Amazon, but I would not consider it a best resource. The book has been out for several years now and has very few reviews. It seems there is a very small audience for this book.Many of the reviews include readers that were disappointed overall with the book it did not really enjoy it."

    "This is a cute novel. While there are some issues as far as the craft of the novel- inconsistencies, no introduction, and a mess of cliches, at the heart of the story is the need for the characters to find themselves and to be satisfied with who they are. The idea itself is also quite original, with the theme part characters going on strike. "
