When getting further into the book, the story is akin to the Resident Evil movies - female fighting the "Biters" while seeking sanctuary and a cure to this madness. There are a few twists in the story and Alice eventually teams up with the Biters to fulfill her supposedly prophecy as outlined in the heavily coveted "Alice in Wonderland" book. Soon, Alice leads an army into battle like Joan of Arc - in hopes of overthrowing the current ruling society of that part of the planet.
There are flaws in the writing style and typographical errors, but they can easily be overlooked once you are pulled into the story - one that I thoroughly enjoyed. The ending leaves the reader up in the air as to what happens next...however, I am pleasantly surprised to discover that this is the first book of a trilogy and all are available on Amazon along with a prequel to this story. I'll download them today and continue to read the ongoing saga of "Alice in Deadland".
Cherries - A Vietnam War Novel
Think of reading a graphic novel but without the illustrations.
It's a great story with some clever twists on human-zombie relations. It ensues in India of all places with the Chinese as the enemy and a blonde caucasian girl leading the rebel forces. There are multiple references to Alice in Wonderland that drive the story. The zombies are led by a former scientist known as The Queen. And it's just plain fun.
If you can ignore the repetitiveness of some parts of the novel (yes, we know Alice is the best fighter in her class and can kick serious ass with a gun, you told us that 15 pages ago) and if you don't mind rolling your eyes every now and then (think of it as exercise) then this entertaining read is truly worth it.
If you have a Kindle, you can borrow it from their lending library. Or, just check it out at your local library. The book is much better if it's free. And, I hear there is a second book available too.
Well... not necessarily.
This is not the first time that I have exposed myself to an 'Alice in Wonderland' spin off. The first time I picked up such a venture, it was a completely different type of media.
I picked up 'American McGee's Alice" for my PC. Thatttt's Riiighhhtt!!! A killer Alice video game from EA Games. Pretty cool actually. Lots of dicing and slicing in this game, and a lot of fun!
K so the Alice in this novel kinda reminded me of the Alice from the video game. But there is one huge difference between the video game in question, and this novel...
The video game had better character development.
The writing in this novel was good, but there was really no character building at all.
Result - I cared more about video game Alice than our Alice in Deadland. I barely knew who she was!! She has a mother and a father, is a great fighter, soldier and sharp shooter but other than that? ...... zero, zip, nada.
The spin on the zombies having some sort of thought process, and the hybrid queen was pretty cool, but not very original. Very reminiscent of "I Am Legend"; it's been done before. But I did appreciate the Queen spin, and her character had a lot of potential, but just like the other characters in this novel, she really wasn't explored enough as a character.
This was a high action novel from beginning to end that would do much better as a screenplay for a movie picture, rather than a novel.
I sometimes go to action movies that have little or a really lame plot. And I am not really looking for a plot or care for one. I just want to see the awesome shooting, explosions and special effects. THAT does not work well with a novel however. If there is no one to really care about, I am still losing interest in the plot, regardless of how many shooting scenes, fighting, orRPG explosions you manage to fit in there. Because honestly, my mind does not conjure up the special effects like Hollywood studios can. It's just too lazy.
As a book though... Ugh...
What can I say...
I finished it. I even paid close attention to what was going on. But this one was definitely a disappointment for me. I wouldn't deter readers from picking this up and giving it a chance, but I won't be proclaiming its glory either. And don't really think I will be picking up the next installment of this series.
