Not yet but I'm tempted to buy it every time I see it at the bookstore and I put it on my Amazon.com wish list. I've heard good and not so good things. I suppose only time will tell.

I just finished it recently and I enjoyed it. I found it to be a fresh take on a beloved story. As a kid I always liked to believe that Wonderland was real...and this book tells us that it is. It just isn't what we thought it was. From what I've found on-line The Looking Glass Wars is the first in a trilogy. I am looking forward to the next book to see what happens next.

I didn't know it was a trilogy but I did read that there was a second book somewhere. Not sure if it's out yet or not. I'll have to get them all now!

I had heard good and not-so-good things as well, but I thought it was a really interesting take on Wonderland - and I liked its premise that Lewis Carroll really "dumbed down" Alyss's story for publication and ultimately betrayed her trust. Great idea!

I love The Looking Glass Wars. So creative, great characters. :) Seeing Redd is the sequel, but I was thinking it's not out quite yet.

I read the first book this year. It was a very fresh take on the story. But some parts disappointed me. I'd give it a 3.5 out of 5. It looks like he's set up a story with much potential. I'm interested in seeing where he goes with it. The sequel will be out this month (Seeing Redd).

I read The Looking Glass Wars. I really liked it, and all my friends are surprised I did because while one of my friends was reading it, I said things like "Oh, well, it's just a spinoff of Alice In Wonderland. Spinoffs are stupid." and "The original is always so much better.Spinoffs usually stink.". But I liked it so much, that I finished it in the span of 3 days.
Is Seeing Redd really coming out this month? OMG..

I really liked the looking glass wars but seeing redd was a dissapointment. The first stayed with me a lot longer, and I'd advise people that enjoyed it to not read the sequel.

Seeing Redd was certainly not as good as the first book. It seemed more focused on writing out sound effects than it was on developing characters and plots. ::sigh:: so few sequels get it right.

I've read the whole series at least 5 times by now! I am totally psyched for the third book! It's an amazing series and if you haven't read it yet, do it, now.
