Release Date: September 25, 2012
Alice in Zombieland has to be my favorite remake of Alice in Wonderland so far!
This book is fan-tab-u-louuuus! I immediately fell in love with Alice in just the second chapter; she is headstrong, independent, and awesome. She stays tough even when everything she loves is torn away from her. This book has a fine mixture of characters, but it leans more towards the bad-ass, rebel, leather type.
The chemistry between Alice and Cole (♥ interest) is perfect! I loved the dialogue that transpired between the two of them; you can really feel their pull towards one another. Alice's friendship with Kat is so sweet! So lovely!
Speaking of dialogue, Showalter sure does know how to keep it going! It is witty, fun, and (most importantly) relatable.
From an action angle, it was good, but not fan-flippin'-amazing. I had to skip over some of the action scenes because it kind of bored me (but take into consideration that I am not a lover of all things tough and Rambo).
Thankfully this book does NOT end with a cliffhanger (yeah!) because I don't think I'd be able to wait out the suspense.
Overall, I am giving Alice in Zombieland a 4.5/5 because of the witty dialogue, the awesome plot-line, and the relatable relationships between the characters.
P.S. The second book in the series, Through the Zombieglass, hits shelves September 24, 2013!
