Author needs a couple creative writing courses under his belt. 31. Januar 2012
Von S. Estey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Alice In Wonderland is my favourite story. Zombies are my new favourite genre. Naturally, I would choose this book, especially after seeing its 4 Star rating. All I can really say is, Yikes! Alice In Deadland is amateurish. The writing is SO repetitive. When I read a certain phrase or combination of words multiple times within a couple of pages, you've already lost me.

There is no intrigue in this story. I consider myself a trooper when it comes to books. I give them all a fair shake and rarely force myself to stop reading - in for a penny... - but this read is taxing. No plot or character development AT ALL. The phrasing is just weird, the grammar sucks, there are a ton of typos. And if you want your zombies to be sympathetic characters, give them at least one redeeming quality! Don't just tell your audience that everyone's equal, so there. Make us want to like them. Example: Hater, by David Moody. This story is told from the perspective of the changed and the unchanged. While not exactly a zombie story, you do find yourself having compassion for the "others".

All that being said, the one thing I find unforgivable in a published novel is lack of research. If you've taken the time to write a novel, do yourself a favor and have the story make sense. Check your facts, however minor to the plot they might seem. The story needs to be logical, not just convenient and easy.

You get what you paid for 7. Januar 2012
Von A. Woodworth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I wasn't honestly expecting much with a 99 cent book, and I wasn't wrong. I give the author credit for the idea; it's mostly original but its execution is, simply put, poor. There are several issues with this book but I'll address the main two here.

1) Writing
The author is almost certainly one of those people who, since they write technical manuals for a living, think they can write fiction. His dialog is stilted, unrealistic and conveys no emotion. Perfect example: location 1847, where a soldier who has captured the protagonist says (in all its grammatical glory)" 'Talk to me! I'm in charge here and are you are my prisoner.' " Location 527-ish: "Alice could take it no longer and blurted out." Contractions seem to have disappeared as well as civilization in this book. In addition to distractingly putting commas in all the wrong places, any and all statements made by characters are ended with a period, nearly without exception. Anyone with rudimentary grammatical knowledge will actually have to read the sentences several times to figure out what the author intended to say. This is not a `Kindle ruined my formatting' issue, this is an `I have no idea how to properly form a sentence' issue.
To make matters worse, the author has no idea how to develop character or even allow the reader to construct the character mentally. His descriptions are dry and uninteresting, beating any possible dead horse they can find: (loc. 370-ish)" She opened it and took out her water bottle, draining it as she drank every last drop there. " Was that really necessary? There is no economy of words or joy in description that causes the reader to connect with the story; it's all the joyless and bland descriptions that you would expect to read if you were looking through a technical manual. To the reader with any sense of imagination at all, it's awful.

2) Logic and Flow
I'm more than willing to suspend belief for the sake of a good story; so that's not really my 'logic and flow' issue. It's simply that the author frequently loses track of what he was saying and makes terrible jumps. For example, at one point you're thrown from the protagonist being wounded & knocked unconscious to her having been rescued, washed, having her wounds treated and in the middle of the conversation. You know all this happened, not because of the flow of the story or because it was logical that it should be so, but because one character is telling another (who was also there) what they just did. It's like a terrible TV show where the audience is so stupid they don't realize the fourth wall has been broken. Earlier in the book, the protagonist empties her weapon and throws it away only to be firing it again literally moments later, without apparently reloading or needing to go and find it. One of the antagonists is having a conversation, outside, in the center of the town, when he pulls up a chair and sits down. Why there would be a chair in the middle of the street, where the conversation is clearly taking place, I have no idea. The protagonist is allegedly close to her father (not that we see this in their discourse or interactions, we know because the author makes a point of telling us, right before we need to know it) but is apparently motherless until after the (SPOILER ALERT) death of the father, when she grows another family member.

In short, this is a merely mediocre idea gone wrong. Its true tragedy is that isn't not the most horrible book ever; it's merely annoyingly bad. I fear that the Kindle, while reshaping our idea of what a book is and changing the way we read, has opened up the way to glut the market with self-proclaimed 'writers' who know neither the joy of writing something truly beautiful nor the ability to recognize that their own talents may lie elsewhere.

read review by "most helpful first" 21. Februar 2012
Von otis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was VERY close to purchasing this book based on all of the wonderful 4 and 5 star reviews, until I read one review that urged readers to just read the preview pages on amazon. First, I must say, it's an enticing premise for a book! There even seemed to be a handful of possibly interesting characters, but the writing is HORRID. There were a few times when I could almost get into the story, but the repetitive, simple writing just wouldn't allow me to stay there.

If you are very young, or otherwise simple (no disrespect intended) you may actually like this book. That being said, PLEASE do yourself a favor and read the reviews sorted by "most helpful first" (you will notice it's all of the 1 and 2 star reviews) and if you're at all still interested read the sample pages! If, by the end of that, you are still interested, then by all means read the entire book and leave a positive review if you liked it!

All of that being said, after my own amateur investigation I have concluded that most all of the 4 and 5 star reviews are forged, or driven by something other than an honest review of the book. This book wouldn't get an A in a high-school writing class, despite the interesting premise.

Bottom line: Even though it's only a dollar, your time would be better spent elsewhere. Take 10 minutes to research it!

Don't bother 31. Dezember 2011
Von Trance Roberson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I'll start off by saying I love a finely written book like Jumper or reflex by Gould, John Locke, Zakour, and many more. This is not one of them.

The author starts off by telling you about the main character. Her skills, abilities, and you really believe the character is ready to do what is written. Then you get to the story, and realize the character can't do any of it.

Alice is suppose to be a top notch 15yr old fighter with many kills under her belt, lots of training, knowledge on the situations, and the mindset to do the job. Unfortunately in the writers first test of Alice he proves to be a disappointing characters. She can't fight, think, plan, or user her brain.

The writer spends a several pages telling us how skilled Alice is, but as soon as a fight happens, he tells you all over again DURING THE FIGHT. So a 2-3 pages action fight turns into a essay on her character with bits and pieces of a fight.

The character has a rifle, gun, and long knife. The only way to kill the creatures is by shooting/hitting them in the head. So Alice is in close proximity to three undead, she shots one in the head, wastes two in the chest of another before shooting the second in the head, and the third gets kicked. She then runs away because she's out of bullets. Runs 1/4 of a mile flat out in there territory, and never reloads. During all this the writer re-iterates Alice's fighting skills/knowledge/preparedness.

I stopped reading at that point. Why bothers? By the way, this was in the first chapter.

Seemed like a good cooncept...but horrible!!! 24. Januar 2012
Von avholl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I thought this would be an interesting twist on an old classic but I was very wrong. The writing was terrible and the fact that no one proof read it before it was published is just ridiculous! Don't waste your money!
