Alice I Have Been

Alice I Have Been - Melanie Benjamin It is supposedly the true story of the life of the “real” Alice in Wonderland. I thought the book was interesting, although I found its pace very slow. I think fans of historical fiction would find it a good read.
It does have some interesting themes ... touches on everything from pedophiles, class distinction and the first world war, but does not explore any of them thoroughly enough to make it a good subplot for the book.
Not a waste of time if you like period books but not one of my faves so far this year.
