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.

    needs some changes

    ok i have 2 problems with this book. first off the sample is way too short to even get an idea of wether or not you want to buy it. second $10.00 is way too much for a nook book. there are way too many books for the nook that are less than $5.00. i wont spend that much!!! it needs a much longer sample. this book was recomended to me by fellow reader.....needs some changes!!!!

    Too weird...

    I love Alice in Wonderland and I love zombies so I thought this was sure to be awesome! Unfortunately, I've read the first several chapters and it's just too weird for me. Gore doesn't usually bother me, but swimming in coagulated blood and wanting to eat the live characters was just too much for me to imagine a little child doing. I'll stick with keeping Alice and zombies separate.

    Not worth the time

    Yes, the original Alice is a weird enough story to begin with, but it was something radically new in its time. This is basically a thinly disguised ripoff and offers nothing more than some rotting body parts, gross scenes, and lightweight parody. There are many other better books in the horror genre. Don't even think about enjoying this one. Not an original idea to be found here.
