Sadly, I haven't read the original Alice in Wonderland but I have a strong love for the darker sides of fairytales so I'd have to say I'd like Splintered more.

I don't think they can be compared. True, Splintered is "inspired by" Alice, but they're totally different.
I enjoy them both for what they are.

Being an avid lover for Alice in wonderland, this is one of my favorite series. It takes a WHOLE new twist on AIW. It's dark and descriptive and you spend a lot of time In Wonderland. The whole storyline is great

I've never read the original Alice in Wonderland, but I am a HUGE fan of all the movies and entertainment that comes from it. I love every piece of entertainment that has ever been inspired by Alice in Wonderland just like I love Splintered. When I saw the cover of this book at Books-A-Million, I had to have it! I like the dark twist, and I love spending time in Wonderland. It's as bizarre as it's supposed to be. However, I believe that you can't compare this to Alice in Wonderland because it's a different story. As is the Tim Burton movie. They're both great works, though.

I don't think there can be a real comparison here. Yes, Splintered is an amazing book but in the end it's inspired *cough* rip off *cough* from Alice in Wonderland. And that's a book that speaks on a different level to children as well as adults. Whereas Splintered, it's definitely enjoyable for teenagers, but it lacks the depths that Alice in Wonderland has.

I read Splintered and really liked it. I own the second book, Unhinged, but haven't read it yet. Alice in Wonderland is fantastic, but there's really no way to compare Splintered to it because it is a "re-telling". I adore re-tellings, especially anything Alice related, even though they seem to be a trend right now.

Do we really have to choose? Sure, AIW is the original and source of the inspiration, but Splintered is a twist, making it its own story. Or maybe I just don't like making choices. :)

I love the original, but I love this re-telling. I am finding that I usually enjoy most re-tellings as long as they bring something unique to this story, which this novel definitely did.

Both the books are very good but I would go for Alice in Wonderland. It is simply amazing.

I have read them both and I can't decide which is better.
