    I'm a HUGE fan of the podcast and, so far, the Novel is JUST as satisfying. I don't think you have to have listened to the podcast to "get it." As advertised, it's a "complete re-imagining," that is familiar enough for the fan without being repetitive or predictable. I'm SO SO excit...

    What a satisfying read?a perfect blend of horror, suspense, and the rediscovery of a romance. I love the desperate clinging to humanity that suffuses Fink?s novels and podcasts; even in this highly anxious time, we read love stories about a woman who will do anything for the love o...

    Alice isn't dead. She's just gone. Her wife thought she was dead for a long time, but now she knows better. Keisha has other problems. Grief over Alice consumed her life, but her life was consumed by anxiety before that, and will be consumed by anxiety once again. And then there are th...

    Alice is dead. Or is she? From the creator of the wildly popular podcast, Welcome to Night Vale, comes a story about a young woman roaming the highways of America as a truck driver looking for her wife whom she believes to still be alive. Along the way she will encounter deforme...

    I'm a huge Night Vale fan (podcast and books), so I thought I would like this one more. However, I found the sort of rambling, meandering storytelling that works in Welcome to Night Vale didn't work here. I found myself frustrated with anything not advancing the main plot, and it it to...

    Super enjoyed this page turning horror story. Confession: I don't listen to the Nightvale Podcasts but have thoroughly and completely enjoyed the books. Go figure. ...

    Overall it's still a cool story but they may have benefited from making even more changes from the original podcast than they did. Each part lined up with one of the seasons. Things that make sense in a podcast format ((view spoiler)[ a certain character showing up in the "finale" of p...

    I have a hard time with podcasts - WTNV is one of the few I don't zone out on. I need to give Alice Isn't Dead a try because I've found the premise so intriguing from the very beginning. But I'm just not good at visualizing audio. So I was really excited when I found out this book was ...

    Not that long before, on a highway in Georgia, a wife she hadn't seen in over two years had left a billboard with some advice, and now she was going to listen to it. Who was she to fight a war this lopsided? Her wife had perhaps decided to fight it, and her wife had disappeared. A d...

    Hand upon hand, she thought, upon leg upon heart upon couch upon a day where we made pizza together. That's love, Alice. That's what it's made of. And so what is this? Alice isn't Dead. Keisha, her wife, knows this to be true, and so she's set aside her life and embarked on a journe...

    Keisha Lewis and her wife Alice led ordinary lives amid their quiet love story. The last few years, Alice was often on the road for work but checked in regularly. Then came the day that she didn't return. There was an investigation and searches but it was as if Alice simply vanis...

    Alice Isn't Dead is one of my favorite podcasts and while I enjoyed this slightly different take on the story here I definitely prefer the podcast. The sense of unease and dread is not as prevalent here and I really missed that. Plus, Jaskia Nicole performance really makes the tale. ...

    Alice Isn't Dead is one of my favorite podcasts. The story is Keisha's search for her wife and her subsequent stumble into a world of creepy zombie men and twisted government agencies is compelling and so well-written. This book is simply the podcast in a different format. I'm reviewin...

    Alice Isn't Dead is a really good novel. It's a really good horror book, a really good sci-fi/fantasy book, and a really good book about humans in general. Just from reading the plot summary, you might think this was a book all about some vast conspiracy involving the U.S. Government a...

    3.5/5 This is a wonderful novelization of the podcast. It has a heart that is held deep and true throughout the whole story. I finished it with a light heart that was feeling just a little bit more deeply than it had been before. ...

    If you have listened to Alice Isn?t Dead (the podcast), you have read Alice Isn?t Dead (the book). The podcast was good but I was hoping for a new story. ...

    I would recommend the podcast (5/5) over the book as the sound effects, different voices, and first person narration. But the story is still great, and I loved that Fink shared how Keisha's anxiety mirrors her own, as well as some parts of the story being more fleshed out. ...

    Review: 5 Thoughts: So I was a few episodes in the podcast when I learned there was going to be a book. Since I got sucked in, I had to pre-order. I'm not finished with the podcast, and I will need to do so, since the podcast is a little different than the book. The book starts ...

    "She couldn?t go home. Because home wasn?t a place. Home was a person. And she hadn?t found that person yet.? WOW. And I thought I loved Night Vale. Full disclaimer, I only listened to the first season of the Alice Isn?t Dead podcast, so I can?t compare this to the podca...

    While I was hoping this would be a new story compared to the podcast, it was just as thrilling to read as it was to listen to it. I personally think the podcast gripped me a bit better, but I also listened to it while driving and there is something that just makes Keisha's story more c...

    To tell the truth, I stopped listening to the podcast after about 5 episodes because it was too creepy and I'm scaredy-cat, but for some reason I think the story in a book format would work better for me. and I just want to read a roadtrip book about Keisha looking for her wife Alic...

    I cried at the end. It's not even a sad ending, I've just been following the podcast since the very beginning and can't believe the story is over. I loved it. I love it. The podcast. The book. Both absolutely creepy, thrilling, inspiring, and wonderful. ...

    Of course, lots of people get murdered every year, but he thought he was different from those people, for reasons he could not have articulated because the idea that nothing horrible could ever happen to us personally exists not in our thoughts but in the base of our necks. Firstl...

    I bought this book after reading the first chapter because I was immediately sucked in. Without even knowing it was a podcast (which I should have because I love Welcome to Nightvale and have their other 2 books) I dove in and finished it in 3 days. There wasn?t one second I was bore...

    I can see how this may be a creepy podcast but didn?t like the book. Would have been a better short story. Super political. Supposed to be some kind of statement about the author?s anxiety in the two protagonists. I don?t think anyone who suffers as they do would be able to accom...
