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.

    Entertaining

    Total new twist to Alice in Wounderland. Strange, gorey but entertaining and funny. I think you probably need to be a zombie fan to really appreciate this story.

    A Fun Creepy Take on Carroll

    Nickolas Cook made a great choice for a Halloween take on a novel. He recreates well the unique child's voice of Alice, and the original weirdness of Alice in Wonderland just translates naturally into a zombie world. The original characters like the Hatter and Cheshire Cat make appearances, but keep with the zombie theme. While the novel could be enjoyed by Carroll fans at any season, I read it around Halloween to find some holiday spirit.

    Skip this one!

    The story line is horrible and after a few misplaced and misspelled words, I lost all interest. Not worth your time.

    For Lovers of Zombie Spin-offs.

    Had to give Alice in Zombieland four stars as it was truly bizarre fun, but felt guilty the while so couldn't go to five stars.

    Funny, gory and a nice read

    Perhaps it was because of how much I loved Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. Perhaps I was just in the mood for a nice Halloween read. Whatever the reason. I really enjoyed reading old bits of Alice's dream reinterpreted into Zombieland. Anice bit of writing with some nice illustrations. A fun read with a nice twisting ending.

    Bandi the book-a-holic

    Amazing, wonderful, extrodinary, book. Follows original book, but has a twisted life of its own. If you love zombie tales, but not too gory, youll love it. Amazing artwork too.
