Sincerely cute, if not a little morbid...

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.
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.
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.

An imitation of Pride Prejudice and Zombies, except in Wonderland. Not overly creative or original but a quick, easy read for zombie fans.Published 8 months ago by JJ Boomer
