Manga Review: Are You Alice Vol. 10

I've finished "Are You Alice Vol. 10" by Ai Ninomiya.

Product Description

When Lewis Carroll took in a little black cat for Alice Liddell, he most likely never imagined that it would be the sole witness to his final throes of madness. Nor could he have fathomed just how much a cynical alley cat could make of his discarded characters. So spins the tale of how the Cheshire Cat came to be -- and how he may yet come to be Lewis Carroll's undoing.

My Review:

This manga is told in the Cheshire Cat's point of view and we learn he had at least three owners before Alice.

Lewis is depicted as a crazy old man in this volume and I wasn't impressed in his way of obtaining the little black kitty for Alice.  He practically crushed his collar and grabbed him.

We learn Alice is given a younger brother who is the one who actually kills her.  We find out she doesn't want to die and cries herself to sleep almost every night!


Thanks Hachette Book Group Canada/Yen Press for sending me this manga to review, greatly appreciated!
