    A bit of a disappointment, Alice Isn?t Dead was touted as a reimagining of the spooky, affecting podcast but in its novelization lacked some of the things that made the podcast so gripping and, for the most part, was more of a lackluster distillation of the original rather than addin...

    What a road trip! And what a book!! This book is quite an adventure. Part monster story, part LGBT love story, part coming of age, part good versus evil story, part social critique. Complete with kick-ass characters. I just loved this book. It had a message and was also great fun...

    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...

    I had been excited to listen to this. I made it through the fourth CD before giving up. I think I expected something more along the lines of Pines in tension-building and weird happenings. I thought there'd be a touchpoint in the madness to hang onto. However, this was vague, random, ...

    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...

    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...

    I?ve heard big things about the authors first book Welcome to Night Vale, when this turned up at my local library, the interesting concept on the cover, made it sound like a book I would like. Weird, strange occurrences, supernatural stuff, conspiracies. All my kind of stuff. Howe...

    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...

    2/5 So, I tend to have this issue with the works of Joseph Fink: I am pulled in by a super interesting premise, quirky style, and an engaging open, and then somewhere along the way I get lost in the bizarrely, unexplainable supernatural elements that overwhelm the rest of the plot. ...

    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...

    While I often found myself frustrated with the confusing style of story telling or lack of details in certain parts, I left the book liking it more than I thought I would. Everything in this novel seems delivered in earnest, which was a deviation from the Nightvale novels that Fink co-...

    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. ...

    I was going to give this 2 stars because there's some quotes I liked but y'know what, no, I'm giving it one star because I Hate It. The description of this sounds so promising, but please don't be fooled, the plot is ridiculous, vague, and incredibly unsatisfying, and the characters ar...

    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...

    Ok, so first off I haven?t listened to the podcast yet as of writing this review, so all opinions are based on the book alone. It was interesting, and not what I expected it to be - but then, I wasn?t really expecting it to be expectable, if that makes sense. That being said, it wa...

    I've been bouncing back and forth about whether to give this book a 2 or a 3, and if it were able to, it would probably be given a solid 2.5. As is, I'm rounding up, because that's just what I decided to do. My favorite part about this novel is easily the writing style. It's undenia...
