Alice in Brexitland

Alice in Brexitland 

Book Review:

Everywhere you go in Britain you cannot escape the Brexit talk. It's all over social media. It's the hot topic of conversation, and with an election on the horizon, it feels like you cannot outrun it.

Alice in Brexitland is a funny and entertaining rundown of events. It tells the fairy tale of Alice in Wonderland but with the twist being the politicians etc. being the Wonderland characters.

We need a few more laughs when it comes to the political decisions. People seem so serious, and this book is a lighthearted tickle to lighten the mood. Although if you are terrified of leaving the EU, this book isn't going to offer you any comfort.

It is broken down into chapters about meeting each of the characters. David Cameron being the rabbit leading Alice into Wonderland.

"Dave! She yelled, "I followed you down this hole; the least you can do is help me out of it!"

The pictures add to the story and offer a tickle of their own. The artist is talented in capturing the personality of the reality and fantasy.

This book is clever. It's a short read and portrays the characters well. The story follows as Alice in Wonderland, and there is even a tea party. It's supposed to be a joke, and that's the way I took it. I would say the author is a remain supporter which is evident by the end of the book. By the end, Alice in Brexitland is heading into a little rant, but it was something different for me, and I enjoyed it.

3.5 stars out of 5.
