[Quick Summary: Alice revisits Wonderland, and faces off with the Jabberwocky.]
I admit this isn't my favorite book.
However, I did like this script adaption because it was faithful to the "intention of the book" (see William Goldman's advice on adaptions).
A couple of examples:
BOOK: Alice begins the story by stepping through the looking glass. [Intention? She wants adventure.]
SCRIPT: Alice chases a rabbit to escape her surprise engagement party. [Intention? Also adventure.]
BOOK: Alice wakes up at the end with a revelation. [Intention? She's changed.]
SCRIPT: Alice wakes up and deals with the proposal. [Intention? She's changed.]
This was pretty eye-opening for me.
Finally, I could put my finger on what bugged me about bad adaptions, and why others were good despite added/subtracted material.
WHAT I'VE LEARNED: Never violate the intention of the book.
