Ever wonder what Alice would be like if she ended up in Zombieland instead of Wonderland?

When little Alice follows the Black Rat down into the gaping darkness of an open grave, she falls and falls. And soon finds herself in an undead nightmare of rotting flesh and insanity. Venturing further into this land of zombies and monsters, she encounters characters both creepy and madcap along the way.

But there's something else troubling poor Alice: her skin is rotting and her hair is falling out. She's cold. And she has the haunting feeling that if she remains in Zombieland any longer, she might never leave.

Can Alice escape Zombieland before the Dead Red Queen catches up to her?

Alice in Zombieland is not your typical childhood fairytale. Even though the storyline is kept pretty much the same, the author adds a demented twist to Alice's “Wonderland”, turning it into a “Horrorland”. It took me sometime to develop an attachment to this version, and the attachment was more of a curiosity. I was curious to see what type of morbid adventures Alice would be taken through and what kind of misfit characters she would meet along the way. I am a fan of Horror, so I did find myself somewhat enjoying this read in a psychotic manner. =)  All the characters, however mentally disturbed, fit perfectly in this freakish land of undead things. So, if you are wanting something familiar, yet truly bizarre, than you need to experience the tale of Alice in Zombieland for yourself.
