Review

All the characters, however mentally disturbed, fit perfectly in this freakish land of undead things. (Ramsey's Reviews 2011-03-28)

A cute, quick read. (Palmer's Picks for Reading 2011-03-28)

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 2011-03-17)

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

(Michelle's Book Blog 2011-04-14)

Sincerely cute, if not a little morbid... (Big Shiny Robot 2011-06-13)

Format: Paperback
I have read and watched a variety of Alice based books and movies since I was young. None of them have held my attention like this version. Alice in Zombieland kept me laughing page after page. I couldn't help but compare each of the scenes with my memory of how it was presented in a more traditional rendition. Alice is still a sweet, innocent girl, though her perfectly pressed dress and starched pinafore does take quite a beating and bloodying.

The story starts with Alice and her sister outside enjoying the lovely day. This time they are in a graveyard., and it is a black rat that distracts Alice and leads her astray and down into an open grave. The tale continues to parallel Mr. Lewis's original story line, though the descriptive details and much more dark and dead. Zombie dead that is.

As with the first version, I loved the description of the Mad Hatter's tea party. The teacups are all there, ample food to share and the same company. It was the change in the details that kept me in rapt attention. While I have had many tea parties with my daughter when she was young, I couldn't successfully imitate this one.

I don't know that zombie books will ever become a first choice read for me, but this one kept me coming back for more. I loved the descriptions of the blood spurts and gore, the flesh ragged bones lying around and the listless responses of the 'cards'. Frequently I would stop and read a particularly gruesome passage out loud to which ever family member happened to be in the same room with me. I fear that they now think I am truly demented. If you have read Mr. Carroll's version and are looking for a read that is a lot less sweet, give Alice and Zombieland a read.

Format: Paperback
The book certainly had its' fun moments! Zombieland was well written and well thought out. It certainly put a funny twist on Wonderland (even though Wonderland is quirky to begin with anyway). It's definitely not for the squeamish, as body parts are flying everywhere and Alice gets a craving for a bite of flesh once very so often. The characters are all there, they're just zombified. The only difference I have seen is instead of a White Rabbit, you have a Black Rat instead. (If I am wrong, forgive me, it's been a while since I've read the original Alice in Wonderland).

The zombie element does not really get in the way of the plot, so nothing much has really changed. My favorite moment was the croquet game between the Queen and Alice - it's more of a croquet game with body parts which was laughable and was fun to read through.

Even though it was a fun idea, I felt like there just could have been more to this story. There just wasn't enough to it that I could fully enjoy the book. To me, it felt as if they just copied and pasted the zombie bits of the story and added it to Alice in Wonderland, and just changed the title appropriately. It just felt like a very haphazard read.

Perhaps what I wanted to see was, a twist to the plot to enhance the zombie aspect of the novel. Not just zombies added. It did feel like all you got was a simple add on to the story (something similar to an expansion pack for a game). More could be done with the combination but sad to say, there really wasn't anything to it.

It was a clever idea, and it had potential, but a lot more could have been done with this book. Instead, what you got was a few cut and paste moments of zombie goodness. Some parts were good and fun to read, but it just seemed to be lacking in something big to make this book exceptionally good and read worthy.

Creepy & Funny. May 14 2011
By Mrs. L - Published on Amazon.com
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.

A tongue and Cheek read March 31 2011
By Cheryl Koch - Published on Amazon.com
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.

Review From Eva's Sanctuary May 2 2011
By Eva J. Coppersmith - Published on Amazon.com
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. If you have thoughts of reading it, I would definitely suggest the library before you decide to purchase. Alice is certainly not in 'Wonderland' anymore.

I was provided an ARC from Sourcebooks for reading and reviewing purposes. I was not required to give a positive review. The opinions expressed are my own.

Alice in Zombieland March 24 2011
By Melissa A. Palmer - Published on Amazon.com
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.

Not as Original as I'd hoped Feb. 25 2013
By Summer West - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.
