    [PDF/EBOOK] The Looking Glass House Vanessa Tait Ö 0 free read A strange little book I'm not sure what I expected but it twists and turns in so many directions that I almost certainly didn't get whatever it was I expectedThe book starts focused on the governess of the Liddels Her name is Mary and it's clear from the start that she has aspirations of becoming important than her low born status

The Looking Glass House

review í PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ö Vanessa Tait characters The Looking Glass House º PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Into a strange new world Mary is poor and plain and desperate for change but the little girls in her care see and understand far than their naive new teacher And there is another problem Mary does not like children especially the precocious Alice LiddellWhen Mary meets Charles Dodgson the Christ Church mathematics tutor at a party at the Deanery she wonders if he may be the person to. An imaginative glimpse into a portion of time within Alice Liddell s life the little girl who was the inspiration for Lewis Carroll s Alice s Adventures in Wonderland and who also was the great grandmother of the author Vanessa Tait The story is told in the third person mainly from the viewpoint of the governess Mary PrickettIt is very cleverly and beautifully written but also uite whimsical and surreal It touches on the weird and wonderful topsy turvy world of Lewis Carroll pseudonym for Charles Dodgson and the writing harks back to him in a certain way I found the tale engaging and interesting I loved that it combined fact with fiction I thought the author did a fantastic job of reading between the lines However I did not particularly find any of the characters particularly likeable Alice was precocious spoilt child and Mary a fool in my opinionThe Looking Glass House is to be published in July to coincide with the 150th anniversary of Alice s Adventures in Wonderland An engaging and unusual read which I am sure will appeal to those who love fairy tales and all things magicalMany thanks to Lovereadingcouk for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book

review í PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ö Vanessa Tait characters The Looking Glass House º PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Transform her life Flattered by his attentions Mary begins to believe that she could be than just an overlooked dowdy governessOne sunny day as Mary chaperones the Liddells on a punting trip Mr Dodgson tells the story of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland But Mary is determined to become Mr Dodgson's muse ­ and will turn all the lives around her topsy turvy in pursuit of her obsession. Fulll Review really wanted to read this book mostly because of the gorgeous cover but also the concept of learning about the Liddell family before the stories of Alice in Wonderland However this was the story of the pedantic slightly mentally abnormal governess who see s things differently based on the family tales heard by Alice s own great granddaughter Vanessa Tait The writing is very prettily done but it is let down by a lack of punchlines which forces the reader to suffer through a lot of exposition and character changes before the big climx which is neither big nor climaticIt s an interesting attempt and I liked that it was tried Tait is a good writer but her choices weren t the best Writing in 3rd person rather than 1st made the story very weak to me I kept forgetting who Mary was before it clicked that it was the governess Since we never leave Mary s side I would have rather read her thoughts rather then being told her actions It makes us distanced and so uninterested and uninvested in the story Overall it was a disappointment to me prettily written with some lovely lines and setting but the narrative just didn t work A shame

review í PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ö Vanessa Tait characters The Looking Glass House º PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Vanessa Tait great granddaughter of the Alice who inspired Alice's Adventures in Wonderland tells the fascinating story of the childhood classic's strange beginnings through the eyes of a naive and deceived governessWhat happened before Alice fell down the rabbit holeOxford 1862 As Mary Prickett takes up her post as governess to the daughters of the Dean of Christ Church she is thrust. I read this book in 2 days My first thought was that it was wonderful Indeed the writing is subtle and the flourishes in which Tait parallels this book with AiW are wonderful That was my first thought And my second has this woman got some internalized misogyny issues or what It s like every fictive trait of the scorned female is applied with a trowel The governess is stereotypical despite actually being a real person and she is the typical governess nightmare frigid judgmental with ideas above her station and dangerously jealous of her charges Alice in particular The writing is good great even but it deserves better characterization than this The class issues are handled with a similar sledge hammer the working classes are florid stocky and loud while the upper classes are pallid and sylph like There isn t a single character who uestions anything about this situation and yes before you say it I understand that this is a fictionalization of these people s lives but it s because it is a fictionalization that care can and should be taken Their lack of dimension makes them predictable and the governess s revenge can be guessed long before it comes to it The afterward states that there was no evidence that the governess fancied Dodgson in the way that she did in the story and yet her character has been thoroughly smudged in the name of fiction And yet I must come back to it the writing is fantastic Perhaps Tait was worried about turning anadmittedlygreat phrase than in creating something other than stock characters but in fiction one is as important as the other Tait s relationship to the family she is Alice Liddel s great granddaughter makes it all the important lest people consider that she has information that makes the fiction true
