Alice in Zombieland :: my thoughts ::


First of all, it should have been noted that I found this book by doing a quick Google search for ''zombie books.'' I'm in serious Walking Dead withdrawal, okay. Don't judge!

If you liked the Twilight series, I think you will enjoy this book. It revolves around angsty teenagers, young love, danger... all that good stuff!

I thought there would be a bit more similarities between this book and ''Alice in Wonderland'' than there actually was, but it wasn't a huge deal. The book was a bit sad, tense & interesting, nonetheless.

My only beef is that the zombies in this book are weird. They're not of the Night of The Living Dead variety, that's for sure. And how you have to destroy them is even stranger. The book lost me a bit when it started getting into the technicalities of these ''zombies'' (this only happens half way through the story). The ending was a bit anti-climatic, too. No spoilers... but the ending should have a been more of a ''big deal.''

Overall, the book was an enjoyable, easy read. This is the FIRST in a series by Gena Showalter, The White Rabbit Chronicals.  I will definitely read the next one.

''She won’t rest until she’s sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever.
 Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that’s all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.

Her father was right. The monsters are real….

To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn’t careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies….''

Should I start a rating system for my book reviews... I'm thinking yes!
I'd give this book a solid 3/5 stars!

Oh, and just for fun... I always like to imagine what the characters look like & I imagined Alice as a young Kirsten Dunst and Cole as a young Josh Hartnett.

Have you read the book? What did you think?

  4. It seems as if vampires are on their way out and zombies are on their way in. It's so funny how these creatures that have been around forever are becoming so popular.

  7. This book looks like a lot of fun. And if you're looking for a zombie book, I absolutely loved Cold Kiss, although it's probably more of a love story than horror type book.
