    One thought on “Alice in Zombieland”

    1. Karen sacrificed this book to me cause I was so excited when I saw it. I felt bad taking it from her, but I NEEDED it. I am obsessed with alice and wonderland, then way that I'm obsessed with peter pan. I think in fact she is the female version of peter pan. but when I think of alice I don't think of this: I think of this: Do you want to know a secret? (view spoiler)[ if you put alice in a book I will love it no matter how bad the book actually is (hide spoiler)]I mean you totally lose the impor [...]

    2. When asked to review this book, I was a little hesitant in accepting. I liked Alice in Wonderland as a child, and I wasn't too sure I wanted to see what changes would be made to this classic story. I was curious though after reading some Austen remakes that are being retold the same way. So I fell through the rabbit hole and began the journey with Alice.After only a few pages of the book, I knew this was going to be hard to get through. The writing wasn't favorable in the fact that it had a ton [...]

    3. I loved Alice in Wonderland and was pretty stoked to finally be able to find this. I was not, however, much encouraged to finish :( I slogged through it and after a promising and pretty cute beginning, it just got pretty boring. It honestly just felt like the "co-author" cut and paste certain sections of the original and then added his own zombie bits to them that made the entire story just awkward, hard to read and thoroughly un-entertaining, at least for me. What writing he did do was stilted [...]

    4. I had a lot of fun reading this. You may not. It depends on your sensibilities and expectations. First of all, this is a humor book. The reader is asked to lighten up and go along for the ride. To have fun and not to dwell too heavily on the fact that there is little originality to the story except for the characterizations and some of the settings. As some reviewers have noted, and criticized Cook for, is the sense that he did not make this work his own as much as Seth Grahame-Smith did with Pr [...]

    5. Oh my god! Doesn't even deserve half a star. A few pages in and I was instantly annoyed with this book. I knew this was a mash up and excited to get it in the mail, but i was hoping for some really witty macabre tale using Alice in wonderland as a base.I hold the original story close to my heart and I defend it against butchers like this This "author". It reminded me of Tim Burton's butchery of Alice last year (the only good thing was Johnny depp). The way the author just replaced parts and char [...]

    6. Alice in ZombieLandAUTHOR: Lewis Carrol/Nickolas CookGENRE: Classic/Horror Mash-upFORM: Book – Advance Review CopySYNOPSIS: Alice and her sister go out to the graveyard to do her reading lesson when she gets distracted and sees a black rat checking his watch. Curious, Alice follows the black rat into a hole, and finds herself in a land where the creatures are zombies and ruled by an overbearing Red Queen. Alice finds that she herself is becoming more and more zombie-like and desperately seeks [...]

    7. As a fan of Alice Alice in Wonderlandd zombies, I saw this book and couldn't wait to start reading. This book started out like many other books do, slow. So I did not think much of it, but before I knew it, I was to the middle of the story, still waiting for it to get interesting. When I eventually finished the book, I was quite disappointed that it was not as great as I thought it would be. Of course that just may be my own opinion, but I would not read this book again nor recommend it to other [...]

    8. “Still thinking how much she would like to eat her new friends. She could not decide if she would do so with sauce or not. She wasn’t sure it mattered much as she could not think of a polite way to ask them for a taste of their flesh.” - Nickolas Cook - Alice in ZombielandThis was such a short read it seemed silly not to finish it. I haven’t read the original Alice in Wonderland story, so I don’t know how close this one follows to that. Some of the storyline seemed familiar from watchi [...]

    9. The characters in the story such as Alice, the Hatter, and others more are closely equivalent to the characters in the original story “Alice in Wonderland” making the story more believable if knowing the original tale. And because Nickolas Cook incorporated the same actions from the original story and modified new actions to go with the theme the story stays more consistent. For instance, in the original story, Alice had a drink and a tiny cake that were labeled for her to eat and drink, but [...]

    10. 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 [...]

    11. "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late!"I have never read Alice in Wonderland and I am not sure if I should have read that before this book or not. I know the basics of the story, but you put zombies in it and it gets a LOT weirder. So Alice follows a Black Rat instead of a White Rabbit down a grave and into the world of Zombie land. In Zombieland everything is pretty much dead. Alice starts to get hungry for flesh but she doesn't understand why. It's not till she meets the Cheshire Cat that she lea [...]

    12. When author Lewis Carroll took Alice through the looking glass in 1871, little did he know that a much more gruesome nightmare awaited his dear Alice. When 1864 Alice woke up in a land of wonder, 2011 Alice awoke to a land of the living dead ruled by a power hungry, yet very human, queen. Forced to listen to her lessons from her sister as they sit their favorite cemetery, Alice notices a black rat who seems to be in a hurry. More startling, he has a pocket watch and was quite verbally worried ab [...]

    13. This was definitely the book I was looking for when I wanted to read "Alice in Zombieland" the first time around. This is also a book you will either love or hate once you're finished reading it. And I say "once you're finished reading it" since it's actually a rather fast read even with it being 256 pages for the ebook version. This book is exactly what the title says-it's Alice in Wonderland with the addition of zombies. And it was a weird read. There were points I wasn't sure how to feel abou [...]

    14. 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 [...]

    15. Although the idea was intriguing, once I began reading the book I quickly became disenchanted. I was looking for a new story, a further adventure where she ends up with zombies. Instead, I got a frankly, very near plagiarized Alice in Wonderland, with the occasional morose or creepy word replacing one in the book. I enjoy NEW stories. I enjoy new twists on old stories. I enjoy originality, however the author seems to sack originality & instead stands on the cusp of plagiarism just to make a [...]

    16. Depois de ler os clássicos Alice in Wonderland e Through the Looking-glass este ano, não resisti a devorar o Alice in Zombieland assim que o apanhei na kindle store.Foi uma leitura verdadeiramente deliciosa em que podemos acompanhar a evolução de Alice, de menina que gostava de brincar em cemitérios a zombie, neste estranho e horrível mundo em que se viu depois de cair numa sepulturaQuando já conhecemos os originais não conseguimos não achar graça a esta versão alterada das aventuras [...]

    17. 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 rev [...]

    18. Alice follows a Black Rat instead of a White Rabbit down a grave and into the world of Zombie land. In Zombieland everything is dead. Alice starts to get hungry for flesh but she doesn't understand why. She eventually learns she is a zombie in a world of zombies.This was a cute take on Alice in Wonderland. I will say however I got the impression the Author had Alice in Wonderland opened on a table and just copied what he saw. He then went back and changed everyone into zombies. Not very orginal [...]

    19. How this dreck survived an editor's desk is beyond me. Instead of writing an all-out adaptation, Cook just inserted the words "zombie" and "dead" willy-nilly throughout Carroll's masterwork. The result is a Victorian novel full of Victorian puns and Tarantino-like gore. I can't help but wonder if the "author", "editors", and marketers of this slop were themselves alive, because it's a lot easier to imagine them desperately seeking brains.

    20. The original text ofAlice's Adventures in Wonderlandwith the words "rabbit", "frog" "fish" and "bread and butter" replaced with "rat" "dead" "dead" and "dismembered hand" respectively, plus a badly-written one-page back-story inserted into the middle of the Mad Hatter's tea party. Also, everyone is zombies. That's it.

    21. Brilliant, clever humor! Amazing how few words actually need to be changed to create a different story. I deeply love the original classic, and I had a blast reading this revision! Wonderland was perfectly primed to be turned into Zombieland. From the revamped Tenniel sketches to the details of Alice's peculiar hunger, this book is quite entertaining. I would actually love to see it make it onto the big screen!

    22. Interesting book. Borrowed the e-book from the public library. Quick read, not very long. Easy to finish within a day if theres enough time, took me 3 and I read a few chapters a day before bedtime. Not as wonderful as the original, but its fun enough and quick enough to be enjoyable. Would I read it again, pry not, but was it worth the first read through, yes.

    23. Tak jsem to nakonec dočetlae vážně to byla přesně takový ztráta času, jak se od začátku zdálo. Jestli někdy budete chtít číst knihu " Alice in Zombieland ", dejte si sakra pozor, co rozečítáte. Knih se stejným názvem je hned několik :)

    24. This book was exactly what I expect: a fun take on Alice in Wonderland that fed my love of Zombies. It was quick and enjoyable and the illustrations just added to it in a way I loved.

    25. where were the zombies? she fell, walked around hungry, saw a room of them, woke up. total letdown. no brains. no blood. no gore. no fun.

    26. A book that should have taken me an hour to read, stretched out for days. I honestly kept falling asleep. It lacked finesse and the morbid elements quickly became overdone. What I hoped was quirky retelling of a classic story just failed miserably.

    27. Disliked this book very much. Was just Black Rat not a White Rabbit. Same hole, just a little too gross for my taste . A Lot of the same characters just zombied up.
