This book is a whole lot of fun. It has plenty of original Jane Austen with zombies and gore tossed about at the author's whim. Enjoy Pride and Prejudice all over again without the dreariness of re-reading!

I absolutely adore the original and other spin offs have failed to wow me. (Mr Darcy's Diary-gag!) Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is irreverent in the best way. You can tell the author loves P and P. He's had a marvelous time turning things just a bit without really changing the story. You're going to love his treatment of the Lydia/Wickham and Charlotte/Mr.Collins story lines!

Bonus: illustrations of Jane and Elizabeth battling the "sorry stricken". HAH!

Extra Bonus: Readers Group Discussion Questions:

"Some critics have suggested that the zombies represent the authors' views towards marriage-an endless curse that sucks the life out of you and just won't die. Do you agree, or do you have another opinion about the symbolism of the unmentionables?"

"Does Mrs. Bennett have a single redeeming quality?"
