Very funny, though maybe went on just a bit too long. This would have been a great graphic novel! Quite faithful to the original text and characters---I can totally believe Lady Catherine de Bourgh as a famous zombie killer for example. I don't think Mr. Collins behaviour was exactly true to character at the end (trying not to spoil anything!) but overall a fun read with a few surprises even for those who've read the original. I really liked the "Reader's Discussion Guide" at the end. Sample questions: #6 "Some critics have suggested that the zombies represent the authors' views toward marriage---an endless curse that sucks the life out of you and just won't die. Do you agree..." and #7 "Does Mrs. Bennett have a single redeeming quality?"
