Editorial Reviews

Review

"All the characters, however mentally disturbed, fit perfectly in this freakish land of undead things." - Ramsey's Reviews

"A cute, quick read." - Palmer's Picks for Reading

"I love it just as much as all the other classics I've read that have been remade into horror. I can guarantee you that you've never read anything like this, and aren't likely to again.

" - Literary Litter

"This has to be one of the most fun mash-ups I've read.

" - Michelle's Book Blog

Sincerely cute, if not a little morbid...

Customer Reviews

I had to force myself to finish this book.

This is a book that is a variation to the original Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol.

I had to read it in small doses because, I actually found myself dozing off.

Format: Paperback
Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite stories- that being said, I really enjoyed Alice in Zombieland. Wonderland is already an eccentric place, so I felt that turning it into a Zombieland wasn't too far fetched and the new world fit right into the story. This novel was a lot of fun for me, I love the horror twists on old classics.

This book is disturbing and humorous. A really light, quick read. The illustrations are fabulous. It isn't the typical zombie mash-up, either. I have seen some reviewers upset that Cook only altered some words and kept the writing pretty much the same and not making the story his own, but I didn't mind that. I liked it.

I am really excited to recommend Alice in Zombieland to a friend. Zombie fans should really get into this. It is super creepy, just how I like my zombie books.

Format: Paperback
Alice was sitting with her sister outside on the bank. Alice wished she was in the graveyard instead. She loved walking through the graveyard. Suddenly, Alice sees a black rat. A black rat is nothing to awe about but a talking black rat is. The rat goes racing by chanting about being late. Alice takes off after the rat and follows him. Alice ends up in a strange and bizarre world...filled with odd creatures. All Alice can think about is the horrific craving she has for eating fresh meat. What is this world and what is happening to Alice?

Alice in Zombieland is not the book you or I grew up on. Mr. Cook puts his own twists on a classic and makes it his own for the twenty-first century. I have been on a reading spree recently and have been reading a lot of zombie related books. This book did have the creep factor. The illustrations in this book were well done. This helped to add to the creep factor. As I was reading this book, I could not get over the fact that sweet Alice was a flesh, eating zombie. While, I did like this book, I would not say that it will ever gain the classic status that the original Alice in Wonderland is. This is what I do like about this book as it is a tongue and cheek read.

Format: Paperback
The strange and unusual world of Wonderland becomes stranger when Alice goes down the hole again. This time around Alice follows a black rat down an open grave and falls into an undead nightmare of rotting flesh and insanity into a world of zombies. During her outrageous adventure, she encounters strange and unusual happenings that are difficult to comprehend. More disturbing to Alice then the strange creatures and happenings, she is losing her hair and her flesh is rotting away. She is cold all the time and she has developed a hunger for bloody flesh and undead bodies.

I don't even know where to begin. I must preface this by saying, I was never a huge fan of the original Alice in Wonderland. It was an okay story; but it was not in my top ten reads as a kid. I do not have a dislike for zombies and I am always up for a good horror story with blood and gore; but I am having trouble wrapping my brain around Alice and zombies. It is extremely difficult for me to picture sweet Alice eating flesh and talking to zombies. This just gives tea party a whole new meaning.

I found the story somewhat difficult to read because of the long lengthy sentences. I had to read it in small doses because, I actually found myself dozing off. From the best of my recollection, some of the original storyline is present; but with the present content, it was obviously changed in spots. There was, however, art work at the beginning of each chapter that was quite good at depicting the chapter subject matter.

I rarely find a book that I would not recommend. Unfortunately, this is one of them. I have no difficulty with rewriting of fairy tales; but this one was just a little too bizarre for me.

Format: Paperback
This is an altered classic--a paranormal take on Alice in Wonderland. In this book, Alice falls through the hole and meets a bunch of zombies. This location begins to have a not so pleasant effect on Alice--she begins to crave flesh and her skin is beginning to rot. She knows she must get home. This was a cute, quick read. I think it is definitely more enjoyable if readers have read Alice in Wonderland--there is a lot of play on the characters and happenings of that book that could be lost on one who has never read it. This was a fun book. I was sent this book to review by Sourcebooks.

This book was an interesting read, yes, but it mostly follows the story of the original Alice in Wonderland 'Through the Looking Glass' It only changes a few things and adds a little gore... a separate story wasn't created.

I decided to check this book out solely based on the title. A re-write of the classic "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" as a zombie story was too much for me to pass up. To begin, I was skeptical, dare I say, annoyed, at the thought of taking a classic children's fairy tale and modifying it into some horror story.

Unfortunately, I completed the book disappointed. It was certainly an interesting take on the classic, but it really felt like a replica without its own purpose. I've read other reviews in which people found the story quite funny; I found it difficult to find humor instead of annoyance or confusion. Let's be honest, though, the original too is quite outlandish and somewhat hard to follow, but this story simply adds to the craziness, but not to the story itself.

Had the story been much longer I don't know if I would have finished it. The most intriguing part of it all is trying to compare the original to this new story. Perhaps if I was in a different mood I might have had a different opinion, but overall I would say the story was average at best. There was something in it, though, that kept my interest so I must take that into account which is why I would not count this story as a bad work, just not overly satisfying. It's a quick read, though, so if you're looking for a quick story while you wait for that best seller to arrive in the mail it's not the worst choice you could make.
