    " It was very good but I didn't feel like it was as good as everyone said so. I strongly disliked Alice as a character but at the same time she helped the story to develop. "

    " What can be said about this book ... This is amazing, crazy and you never know what awaits you at the next corner ... inspiration to many filmmakers, series, and other stories as well ... :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 1/8/2014

    " Read this for book club a few years back. Lived in Anniston at the time and almost perhaps felt a bit too close to it, since Bragg was the "local boy" and had started at the newspaper where I was working. There's no doubt that Bragg is a fine writer and captures place and time very effectively. For those who have never been to the area, his writing brings alive the place. Just always fear a little bit about the Southern writing, poor background, had-a-daddy-who-was-a-drunk memoir -- how many books does it take on this topic? But it's well done. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 1/3/2014

    " It's not often that you get a beautifully written book in the style of the great authors of days long gone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 June | 12/29/2013

    " A difficult book to read, due to subject matter, but engaging and very well-written. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laura Everingham | 12/21/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alexis Neal | 11/23/2013

    " Leave it to Rick Bragg to suffuse an arguably tragic (albeit inspiring) story of the poor white South with an almost nostalgic quality. His matter-of-fact writing keeps the story from becoming depressing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia Ridgway | 11/22/2013

    " I enjoy Bragg's journalistic style in this touching memoir. The only thing missing is my connection to life in the South. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Casey | 11/15/2013

    " A very droll story. Nothing happens the way one might expect. I find myself comparing Alice's Adventures in Wonderland to the absurdist play Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead by Tom Stoppard. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Kallan | 11/12/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Harry Kloss | 4/19/2013

    " This is a memoir, a story of tragedy and triumph and family; it tells how a man who comes from abject poverty gets to travel the world at the behest of the New York Times to tell other people's stories, difficult stories. This man can turn a phrase. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amyohemphill | 3/11/2013

    " Excellent memoir...great blend of his own childhood as well as writings of his work as a journalist. Parts were very emotional, difficult to read. I would read more by this author. "

    " Quite an interesting book... Very lovable, but quite queer and confusing at times. I had a hard time understanding it as a child, and even now it's questionable. A good book though! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glenda | 9/1/2012

    " This book is full of weird and nonesense poems. The book isn't all trippy and mushroomy as what I expected maybe because I had big expectations from it. After all, it is a children's book. "
