I was confused by Alice's age in this story. Is she meant to be prepubescent or mid-teens? I should have known going in that she wasn't going to be depicted as at least of consenting age, since it is a retelling of a kids story, but I'm naive at times and I didn't. When I finally did realize just how young she was meant to be I was so squicked out that I stopped and skimmed to the end to see what the conclusion was meant to be and was just irritated. This story could be re-imagined in modern times but the character couldn't have been at least 17? Very obviously a "dirty old man" fantasy that left me squicked out for days after.
To top it all of, I agree with New Dawning Books as far as editing and grammar are concerned. This book was not worth my time.

Though the writer shows promise, he never learned his trade. Half the book is written in only upper case and that's just the beginning. I'm surprised other readers haven't complained.
The book mixes tenses, head hops are everywhere, the grammar is pathetic and words and phrases are repeated, repeatedly.
Sir, get some books on writing or retain an editor, then straighten this mess out. Like I said, it shows promise, but the distractions are overwhelming.
