I actually liked just about everything about this. It had its slow moments but the narration, story, characters were all great. It was a bit predictable but I really would like to see a second book continue the story.
The modern setting and twist they put on zombies was quite good. It wasn't what you traditionally know about zombies which was nice.
I feel the association with Alice in Wonderland is a bit of a stretch. While I am aware that the idea of "Underland" is open to be interpreted and told many ways and does not have to follow an AiW theme it still just in no way resembled a trip to an alternate universe through a rabbit hole. I see where the attempt to make the connection was but I just feel that the title is a bit misleading as a fan of Underland stories. But as a stand alone book was well worth the listen and I strongly recommend.
I was not sure what to expect with this book, and was quickly surprised by the story. It was a enchanting story for adults or teens. There is a sequel coming out and I look forward to see where the story continues.
Pops and Nana interrogating Justin and Cole before they allowed them to leave with Alice.
Gena Showalter's Belle Jamison duology had the same blend of pathos, horror and humor.
Yes, she was brilliant in Faith Hunter's Rogue Mage Series as well.
Through clever and humorous dialogue, the author alleviated the sobering effect of an otherwise macabre tale. The result is a novel make you laugh, cry, scream at the characters to "get outta there" and leave you eagerly awaiting the next installment of the White Rabbit Chronicles.
at times i wanted to turn it off an at others i wanted to stay in the car and listen who wrote the journal was drawn out at times could have had some editing loves some of the twist in the story line i really saw the alice in wonderland but it could have used some more character ref. other than a rabbit and a name..... what about the cat the queen the hatter???? it's worth the listen just be ready to decicate some time and some brain cells.
I really enjoyed this book. It was not what I was expecting, and was pleasantly surprised that the direction this book took was not predictable.
somewhere in the middle.
Poison Princess By Kresley Cole (One Of My 2012 Favorites). Because they're both YA PNR novels written by accomplished adult UF writters.
Her voice.... I don't know it just was a bit droll
I love Ali's grandparent's interrogations.
Not really what I expected, but maybe that's a good thing. To me, zombie equals apocalypse... And... I was thinking this would be a little closer to the books namesake, AIW, but this book is not a retelling. This book was closer to Buffy the V slayer with cannibal ghosts. I LOVED Ali's grandparents!!! They made this book for me.
Love Dogs, Cats and romance books...My Favorites Authors are; Sable Hunter, Sandra Hill, Sarah McCarty, Laurann Dohn and Kresley Col
The Characters were just AWESOME. All of them.
Cat- I loved her way of looking at life, the way she stands by her friends...
Alice ( REALY ALL THE PERFORMS WERE GREAT)
The lost of her Family.
I say buy it.< I realy enjoyed this book. AWESOME JOB Ms. Showalter. Can't wait till the next book in this series come out. Please make it fast...
I've been a Gena Showalter fan for a long time, but avoided this book at first due to the title. I wasn't really interested in revisiting Wonderland from a Zombie's perspective so I waited for the reviews to start trickling in. The initial reviews were better than average so I made the plunge and have not been disappointed.
An addition to Showalter's Young Adult repertoire, I found "Alice" more enjoyable than the Intertwined saga, in character development and plot. This is NO revisit to Wonderland, but a well-written story of courage and loss. Sure, the teenagers all seem to have super-skills and I DID ask myself a time or two, "Where is this place where there never seem to be adults where they need to be?", but it wasn't over-the-top.
Definitely one worth having!
I would recommend the book before the audiobook. For some reason I couldn't stand the narrators voice!
The chemistry between Ali and Cole had me glued from the start even though I wasn't expecting much of a love story.
Her voice sounded too mature to be that of a young "princess" like girl I kept imagine Alice to be. She sounded half bored or like an old smoker with a gravely voice.
Great story but Natalie Golds voice ruined it for me. I feel terrible for saying it but after listening to Cinder and the great performance, Gold was difficult to listen to
I would not want to listen to hours of Natalie Gold. I tried Gena because I love Kresley Cole but could not get into this book at all.
