Product Description

Product Description

They were indeed a queer-looking party that assembled on the bank-the birds with draggled feathers, the animals with their fur clinging close to them, and all dripping wet, cross, and uncomfortable. All of them were covered in Alice's now cold and congealed blood, which made them even tastier looking to poor hungry Alice.


When little Alice follows the Black Rat down into the gaping darkness of an open grave, she falls and falls. And soon finds herself in an undead nightmare of rotting flesh and insanity. Venturing further into this land of zombies and monsters, she encounters characters both creepy and madcap along the way. But there's something else troubling poor Alice: her skin is rotting and her hair is falling out. She's cold. And she has the haunting feeling that if she remains in Zombieland any longer, she might never leave.


Can Alice escape Zombieland before the Dead Red Queen catches up to her?

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 10 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback
The first thing I noticed was the beautiful cover. It's a lovely leathery feel and the illustrations in the book are fab. I've always wanted to read this, being such a big fan of Alice in wonderland. It's an amazing book too, the same book but very different

5.0 out of 5 stars Zombieful ! 20 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you enjoyed Pride and Prejudice and Zombies then you'll enjoy this.

If you've ever read Alice in Wonderland you'll already know how wonderfully strange it all is. So why add Zombies? I feel that quite simply Zombies just make everything better, even this classic tale. Where will the Zombie adaptation franchises end?! Obviously NEVER! As you can't kill the un-dead. A suitably post-modernist twist on a great book. The last chapter feels a little rushed but all the rest of the book is brimming with gory subversions.

If you like this dark and macabre reworking, then I also recommend Jan Svankmajer's stop motion animated film version of Alice. Superbly dark and edgy adaptation that is faithful to the original. As is this book. If the writer wasn't inspired by Svankmajer then I'll eat Corpse Turtle Soup! Alice [DVD + Blu-ray] [1988]

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful 23 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback
This book is terrible. If you've read the original there really is no point. It seems like the writer decided to cash in on a fad and this is the result. What a waste of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars this book is GREAT 28 July 2011
By An0nBU73R - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
My 10yr old daughter requested this book so with a little trepedation I purchased it for her. It arrived while she was away on a visit, so I took the opportunity to read it first to make sure it wouldn't freak her out. I expected a boring retelling of Alice in Wonderland with the word zombie thrown in here and there, but that was NOT what it was (to my absolute delight. I don't want to give too much away, but if you and your kid like zombies, this is a fantastic book to share. The ending is AWESOME.

3.0 out of 5 stars A tongue and Cheek read 1 April 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A darker side of Alice 9 May 2011
By Heather Pearson - Published on Amazon.com
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Creepy & Funny. 15 May 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Alice in Zombieland 24 Mar 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.
