Comments: This is a different take on the classic “Alice in Wonderland” story. It has everything from machine monsters to magic and is definitely a quick read. The plot is fast and fun and the story is definitely original. You won’t be able to guess the ending!

Zombie Blondes

by Brian James

The Stats:
Plot: 1 – Awful
Characters: 1 – Awful
Writing: 3 – Average
Pace: 4 – fast
Cliche Meter: 1 – very cliche

Overall Rating: 2 out of 5

Comments: This is the type of book that you close still waiting for the good part. James did a fantastic job of rendering the overrated and ridiculously cliched story of the new girl at a school with a twist! if thats what you’re looking for, by all means read it, but that idea reeks sadly of disapointment!
