Alice In Tumblr-Land Book Review

Alice in Tumblr-land - Tim Manley

This one just didn't do it for me. Some people may find it funny, charming, and a rather unique collection of fairy tales. But I found that it was just bizarre, had too many innuendo's, and was rather bias. Now the author is probably doing that on purpose but it definitely turned me off.


Alice In Tumblr-Land is told in short stories with pictures sketched with said story. There's a twist, familiar fairy tales are told with internet and the 21st century add ins. It's an extremely quick read, something you can easily skim while sitting in the doctors office.


The problem I had is that most of the jokes didn't make me laugh out loud like I was hoping. Some of them frustrated me, some of them offended me. I suppose it really depends on what type of person you are and what kind of humor you enjoy. Give it a try because you never know. 


One of my favorites (and rather cheesy):

"Pinocchio e-mailed his professor and said, "I've had a family emergency and need one more day to work on my final paper."

(It's more funny with the picture)
