She won’t rest until she’s sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever.
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….
I wish I could go back and do a thousand things differently.
I'd tell my sister no.
I'd never beg my mother to talk to my dad.
I'd zip my lips and swallow those hateful words.
Or, barring all of that, I'd hug my sister, my mom and my dad one last time.
I'd tell them I love them.
I wish... Yeah, I wish.
This pretty much sums my reaction on this book.
When I saw this book and heard all great things about it I expected a lot. Really it seemed so appealing that I couldn't help myself. According to the blurb you expect amazing Alice as you know it just scarier. Those were my expectations, but the question is what have I got? Basically I got same old Alice just Wonderland is not shiny and colorful, but dark and scary. Here I have problem with that scary part. Putting few dead-body parts in a book and turning characters into zombies won't make a book scary. What makes it scary are feelings, which in this case were hiding or something. I couldn't find them, they're probably good at hidding.
There is no need to tell you about Alice. You know the story. One days she disappears and after falling through nothingness she finds herself in one room with plenty of doors, but only one key. After eating and drinking she manages to find perfect form for entering the Wonderland aka Zombieland. She meets all those fancy characters and you know the rest. I've read Alice long time ago and at a time it was very dear book to me. It was imaginative and took me to another world. This book didn't do that. I wasn't impressed by zombies and rat and everything. I couldn't feel it.
It's obvious that I'm very disappointed by this book. Maybe I expected more but really I'm sad that Alice is used in this way. For me Wonderland is much interesting world than Zombieland. I hope it's just me and that you'll enjoy more than me. I really do. Well good part of all this is that there will be a sequel and I'm very curious about it. So 2 stars, just because it had some funny parts.
Until the next time,
