Read from August 04 to 27, 2011

This book is ridiculous. Started off at 2 stars, slid home at 3.5-4. Seriously, I started this book thinking 2 stars was going to be generous (and not at all sure I would finish it), but am happy to say it easily improved from there. Gross, but fun, especially after you stop looking for Austen homage, rather than a sea monsters book written by someone who clearly loves Austen's works. I stand by my first impression, though; it's ridiculous. Also, I note that I don't care that much about Sense and Sensibility, and, conversely, I will not read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies for the exact opposite reason.

Angela You expected anything else?

Esonja No, no expectations other than that it would be just that, ridiculous. But it is REALLY ridiculous.

Katherine Did you manage to read the whole book?

Rachel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is great though.

Chantal I am a die hard Pride and Prejudice fan and I loved the zombie one! This one however is so hard to get through it's just awful.
