Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Alice Bell has led a sheltered life in suburban Alabama, shaped by her father’s insistence that no one leave the house after dark because of the “monsters.” On her sixteenth birthday, Ali insists the only present she wants is to see her beloved eight-year-old sister’s evening dance recital. On the way home, their car is attacked by zombies in front of the cemetery, and Ali alone survives. Now living with her maternal grandparents, she is consumed by guilt (her dad was right after all), fear (the zombies are still out there), and confusion over her powerhouse attraction to bad boy Cole. Though bearing trademark Harlequin emphases on romance and appearance (every character is gorgeous and described in loving detail), Showalter’s novel also includes ironic allusions to Lewis Carroll (a puffy white rabbit cloud always appears before a zombie attack), as well as pathos, as Ali struggles with the loss of her family. It’s an odd mélange that is more successful in the first half of the book, before plot details set up the action for further titles, but when it works, it’s compulsively readable. Grades 7-12. --Debbie Carton

Review

""[An] action-packed paranormal story with a giddy focus on the push-and-pull attraction between Ali and Cole and the nastier side of the high school social scene. The result is a zippy story with crossover appeal that highlights the power of guilt, faith, and self-confidence."" - Publishers Weekly
""The action-oriented plot mixed with scenes of a passionate romance between Ali and Cole - and a new way to look at zombies (by fighting them in spirit form) - will be certain to delight fans of paranormal fantasy."" - VOYA
--This text refers to the MP3 CD edition.

I love her character.
Jessie Potts
I love Gena Showalter's adult books and I love the original Alice in Wonderland story so there was no way I could resist reading Alice in Zombieland!
Sarah (Feeling Fictional)
My only warning is that because the story moves so well, you'll likely read quite a bit at a time.

I'm on the fence with this book. Some aspects of it I genuinely enjoyed, some I didn't like at all, but overall I can say that it was a good book. Entertaining, quite unique, extremely well-written and addictive, it's a fresh new take on the zombie lore, but one that is more likely to appeal to fans of paranormal romance than a typical horror reader.

It's probably best to begin by clarifying that Alice in Zombieland has very little to do with Lewis Carrol's classic. It's not a retelling, it's not even loosely based around the original tale. It's an entirely different story, and the only things these two books have in common is the similar title, the name of the lead heroine and the white rabbit theme. I must say that this alone was a little bit of a let down. I did expect to see a darker, more sinister and twisted version of Alice in Wonderland. I thought it would be quirky, thrilling, perhaps a little bit gore, and definitely totally bad-ass. Well, as it turns out, if you're looking for all that, you're better off picking up Zombies Don't Cry or ZOM-B (and the last one is super, super dark and disturbing!). I won't lie, I felt just a tiny little bit cheated. And the worst part is, if not for the faked connection to Alice in Wonderland, I would've probably enjoyed this book a lot more. The storyline wasn't bad at all, the pacing was good, the intrigue was very well thought-out and quite twisty, and the ending just totally blew me away. For the most part of the book I felt that Showalter was trying too hard to mold the story into something that would be -even only remotely - resembling Alice in Wonderland. And I thought that was unnecessary.

Format: Hardcover
As soon as I heard about this book, I super wanted to get my hands on it. Zombie retelling of Alice in Wonderland? Umm, yes, please! How could that possibly go wrong? Well, it turns out, it could go wrong in a number of ways. Alice in Zombieland has a certain appeal, but not the one that I suspect most readers will be expecting when they crack its spine.

The very first thing you need to know about Alice in Zombieland: it has nothing whatsoever to do with Alice in Wonderland. Just sit back and soak that in. The only Alice in Wonderland references are in the title, the chapter titles and the white rabbit cloud that serves as an omen of doom throughout the book. These three things do not a retelling make. In fact, the links are so limited and on such a surface level that it appears this facade was set up only to bring in more readers; this may work, but those hear for Alice in Wonderland are going to be disappointed.

The next thing you need to know: the zombies aren't really zombies. Showalter decided to try to do something new and original with zombies. She sort of succeeded, but mostly just managed in making them confusing and less cool. See, I wouldn't really call these guys zombies at all; I would call them ghosts. If you're thinking, Wait, What?, believe me, I am with you, friend. These 'zombies' inhabit a spirit plane, and are visible only to people with zombie-fighting powers. From what I was able to gather, they're basically evil ghosts, their evil manifesting in rot.

In theory, I guess this was sort of a cool idea, but, come on, the whole point of zombies is being corporeal right? My biggest issue with this, though, was that it seemed a bit uneven.

I read other reviews previous to reading stating that this was not a retelling of Alice in Wonderland, which killed all enthusiasm I had to read this book. When I finally did read this book, I was like "Hey, this isn't all bad." I enjoyed the setup where we learn about Alice's life before the accident. Before she believed in zombies.

After the accident I began losing faith in the novel. I think I've had my fill of self-pitying heroines, but that wasn't what CRUSHED all hope I had of liking this book.

I didn't like how the zombies functioned in this book. To me, it felt like Gena Showalter did to zombies what Stephanie Meyer did to vampires...she made them "sparkly." Not literally, but these zombies were much less of a threat than most zombies you read about. As a horror fan, I was appalled that there was almost no horror or even humor in a book about zombies. I'm trying to write this review without spoilers, but is it really necessary to dumb down monsters for the sake of romance?

Granted, if you LIKE that sort of thing, then you'll love Alice in Zombieland. More power to you. I'm going to go kill a Carebear now. Just kidding.

The romance between Cole and Alice I enjoyed for all the wrong reasons. He's not the type of guy that girls should ever date, with his moodiness, possessiveness, and obsessiveness with having every second of Alice's life tracked. I was hoping he'd turn out to be more of a villain. Same with Kat. I liked Kat initially, but she was too one dimensional (bubblily, predictable, and beautiful) for me to connect to as the novel progressed.

After reading this book, I think I was betrayed by a pretty cover and a catchy name. Someone who loves zombies should never touch this book. This is a book for Bieber and Twilight fans.
