My Rating: 1/5
If you are looking to read this book because you think it is an Alice in Wonderland re-telling then you are very wrong.
When I first picked up this book I thought it was a re-telling with zombies and awesome fight scenes and a badass grown up Alice kicking undead arse. I was very disappointed. There is little to no Alice in Wonderland references in this book apart from the fact that she’s called Alice and occasionally see’s white rabbit symbols.
The main thing that annoyed me most about this book was the instalove. As soon as she see’s him she’s so in love with him… but she still hasn’t spoken to him yet… However, that’s not the worst part, she’s warned away from him ‘cos he’s dangerous and all his friends are bad news too’. Every YA romance cliche ever is put into this scene. The worst part was how controlling he was. Their relationship (if you can even call it that) becomes borderline abusive.
The only good parts of this book was the zombie hunting and Alice’s backstory. However there was very little of either of these. For a book called Alice in Zombieland I thought there would be a lot more zombie hunting and a lot less kissing.
Overall I pretty much hated this book so much so I had to force myself to keep reading in the hopes it would get better. (Spoiler Alert: It doesn’t)
TLDR: Basically this book is advertised as a fariytale retelling and I was disappointed that it wasn’t. Lots of YA romance cliches so if you’re into that sorta thing this book is for you
