Alice in Brexitland by Lucien Young

Into the Wild

Read Alice in Brexitland Online Free - Lying on a riverbank on a lazy summer’s afternoon – 23rd June 2016, to be precise – Alice spots a flustered-looking white rabbit called Dave calling for a referendum. Following him down a rabbit-hole, she emerges into a strange new land, where up is down, black is white, experts are fools and fools are experts...

She meets such characters as the Corbynpillar, who sits on a toadstool smoking his hookah and being no help to anyone; Humpty Trumpty, perched on a wall he wants the Mexicans to pay for; the Cheshire Twat, who likes to disappear leaving only his grin, a pint, and the smell of scotch eggs remaining; and the terrifying Queen of Heartlessness, who’ll take off your head if you dare question her plan for Brexit. Will Alice ever be able to find anyone who speaks sense?

This is an amusing take on the original story of Alice in Wonderland mixed with Brexit. On the 23rd June, 2016 Alice spots a rabbit called Dave Camerabbit who is calling for a Referendum. She follows him down the rabbit hole and emerges in a strange new land. I loved the characters in this story. T...

Alice in Brexitland is a brilliantly funny, political satirical twist on the classic children's book Alice in Wonderland. Instead of tumbling down the rabbit hole Alice is in Brexitland and the characters she comes across such as - David Camerabbit, Corbyn-Pillar, The Cheshire Twat, Trumpty Dumpt...

While I've never particularly liked the original Alice in Wonderland I do love political comedy and so I had my fingers firmly crossed when I put in my request for this. This is an amusing read and while it was entertaining I have to admit it wasn't as funny as I'd expected and hoped. The story fo...

This is not great literature but it is really great fun! The cartoons are excellent as are the poems/ditties. As much a tribute to Carroll as a satire on Brexit. Alice follows 'Call me Dave' Camerabbit down the hole where she quickly realises that he doesn't know what he's talking about - 'really...

I love Alice in Wonderland and I enjoy politics. I’m one of those rare people who manages to remain quite calm while discussing politics, so despite not being a fan of comedy I had to give this a go. One might say I was “curiouser and curiouser”. I’m sure I’ve heard that somewhere before. This sto...

Alice in Brexitland is a hilarious parody that tells the events surrounding the referendum in the form of Alice in Wonderland. Poor young Alice makes the horrible mistake of following David Camerabbit down the rabbit hole and quickly finds herself in a world that doesn't make sense anymore. The t...

Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for approving my request for a free digital copy in exchange for a review. This is perfectly satirical. I cracked up over and over again. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous, would love to have prints for a few. Would definitely recommend.

This isn't subtle in any way but is very funny (depending on your politics...) as Alice follows David Camerabbit ('call me Dave') down the rabbit-hole into the mad, mad world of Brexitland. Young follows Lewis Carroll closely and makes his Alice a sane and rational voice in a crazy world peopled...

Probably better than the market space gives it any reason to be. Like the 'grown-up' versions of Enid Blyton and Ladybird Books that have been filling the high-street bookshops (and latterly the charity bookshops) for the last year or two, this is a comedy-headline gift choice: whoever the publis...

This review originally appeared on BrizzleLass Books. I will be honest, satires aren’t my thing normally, but I was persuaded by the political slant on this and the fact that like a fair few people I’m living in a state of despair at the state of the country right now! Sometimes having a good laug...
