ALICE IN ZOMBIELAND by Gena Showalter
About ALICE IN ZOMBIELAND (taken from goodreads.com)
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
Review of ALICE IN ZOMBIELAND
This book was not at all what I expected. I figured it would be Alice in Wonderland but with zombies. The only comparison to Alice in Wonderland is the character’s name is Alice and there’s a cloud in the shape of a rabbit. Everything else is 100% different. I love it!
At the start I was really unsure. I thought the main character was going to be super wimpy and that everyone else would have to fight zombies for her. Thank god that didn’t happen. She’s a pretty sweet character actually. She’s really badass and can take care of herself. It’s refreshing actually. I’ve never come across a teen heroine like her. I also really liked Cole, the main guy. He was a super hot bad boy. Which means he was super attractive. I love, love, loved Kat though. She was a really funny and entertaining character. It was really nice at those serious bits. I hope she’s more involved in the next book though.
The plot was really cool too. It had nothing to do with Alice in Wonderland. It was basically about a group of zombie hunters. I liked how the author made the zombies. They weren’t I want to eat your brains zombies. They were more spiritual let me bite you kind of zombies. It’s hard to explain but they were really cool. It’s hard to really change up zombies but this author did it.
I really enjoyed this book and I think everyone should give it a try! I’m really excited to move into the next one!
5 out of 5!!
“Don’t look now, but that’s my ex over there.”
Surely I’m not the only one who takes “don’t look now” as “there’s no better time than now.” I looked.
“Bad, Ali!” Another slap to my arm. “Bad, bad, bad Ali! Have you no self control?
