Review - 50 Shades of Alice in Wonderland (Melinda DuChamp)


Eighteen-year-old Alice is unhappy. Her boyfriend is nice and polite, but he's also quick and careless in bed, and doesn't give Alice the attention and variety she craves. But he's not entirely to blame, because Alice herself doesn't understand her own needs. She's heard about what sex is supposed to be like, but has never felt anything remotely close to what she's read about in runaway bestselling books. 

Then Alice follows a vibrating white rabbit down a deep, dark hole, which leads to a place beyond her wildest imagination. There are no nice boys--or girls--down here. Only those who indulge in secret, forbidden, kinky fantasies. Alice is confused and frightened and... aroused. She is bound. Teased. Spanked. Toyed. Brought to the limits of sexual endurance. And during her trials, she begins to understand her body's needs for the very first time. 

This isn't the fairy tale you grew up reading. This isn't for children at all.This is for those with dark desires, who wish to explore erotic excess beyond the plain vanilla of everyday life. Follow Alice down the rabbit hole, if you dare...

 My Review 

For a spoof (haha don’t mind the pun) this book wasn’t half bad. Having not read the original 50 Shades series which this book is based upon, I can’t really give an accurate account of how good it is compared the 50 shades books. 

The storyline follows pretty closely to Lewis Carols version of Alice in Wonderland, with the few obvious adjustments of some raunchy BDSM. There was a good balance of humor and kinkiness, and was surprisingly entertaining, and despite what I thought there was a pretty continuous plot line. Overall it was a story of sexual discovery, which I believe people of almost any age, can relate to. 

My rating: 3/5


  1. I cannot stop staring at the mushrooms on the cover. Hmm.

    1. Haha yes, they do look oddly suspicious don't they. They definitely remind me of something... hmm I wonder..:P

  2. I nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award!

      I put up a post a few days ago for the Leibster award. But thanks again for thinking of me.
