Cheshire Crossing Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Number-one New York Times best-selling author Andy Weir tackles what transpires after "happily ever after." What happens to Alice when she comes back from Wonderland? Wendy from Neverland? Dorothy from Oz?
The three meet here, at Cheshire Crossing - a boarding school where girls like them learn how to cope with their supernatural experiences and harness their magical world-crossing powers.
But the trio - now teenagers, who’ve had their fill of meddling authority figures - aren’t content to sit still in a classroom. Soon they’re dashing from one universe to the next, leaving havoc in their wake - and, inadvertently, bringing the Wicked Witch and Hook together in a deadly supervillain love match.
To stop them, the girls will have to draw on all of their powers...and marshal a team of unlikely allies from across the magical multiverse.
Written by the number one New York Times best-selling author of The Martian, Andy Weir, Cheshire Crossing is a funny, breakneck, boundlessly inventive journey through classic worlds as you’ve never seen them before.

Praise for Cheshire Crossing:
“Deliciously funny . . . a shrewd and spirited adaptation that will leave audiences hoping for another installment . . . Andersen’s delightful cartoon drawing style meshes perfectly with Weir’s prose, allowing the work to broaden its appeal beyond middle graders to young adults and adults.” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. I tried very hard to not read through this in one sitting as I really wanted to take my time with it. I'm very glad I did, reading a chapter every 2-3 days. I sincerely hope there is a sequal to this as I really want to read the continuing adventures of these three and their very surprising nanny.
All in all, a magnificent exploration and read!
Final thoughts: this novel is adventurous, imaginative, at times humorous but mostly precious. It's a precious thing that remembers three of the greatest characters from three of the greatest works of classical-fantastical literature, bringing them life upon the page once more.
There's an underlying possibility of future collaborations between Weir and Andersen and, as much as I believe this should remain a single issue (adding to its preciousness), I wouldn't argue against a sequel.
La storia è molto interessante, mi piacciono i caratteri forti, originali e ben definiti delle tre protagoniste. Penso però che la storia avrebbe funzionato meglio se non fosse stato un volume unico ma piuttosto una serie o almeno una trilogia: così com'è, le cose succedono troppo in fretta, con poco approfondimento, il che è un peccato perché l'idea è veramente accattivante.
I loved the book. I really like how Andy Wier has intertwined the characters and the stories. And the artwork of Sara is gorgeous. I would love to see a sequel to the novel.
