Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter is a and loose retelling of Lewis Carrol's Alice in Wonderland that has failed to grab my attention because of each characters' boring and stereotypical personalities, the poor writing, and weak storyline that just got more confusing throughout the book.

The way all of the characters communicated with each other not only made the characters, but the story itself seem like a joke. The author also barely provided any detail, making everything- the setting, the characters- seem so uninteresting and vague. But what seemed to irritate me the most was that this story didn't seem like a story, it just seemed like someone narrating hoe they stumbled into a new world. It sounds interesting in the beginning, but, then what? For most of the story, l feel like the characters are just bidding their time, until some random event occurs at the end of the book, which is suppose to make it sound interesting. But really, it just makes the story seem even weirder because the ending was just so out of the blue.

Although, I did find this part of the story enjoyable: the developing romance between the main characters Alice and Cole. It's a bit cheesy, but it's certainly heart-pounding.

Overall rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars
