I was excited to read this one. Unfortunately the whole gimmick with the zombies wore thin pretty quickly, especially because they rarely made an appearance and when they did never served any purpose. I'm not quite sure who this book is made for. Zombie/horror fans will grow bored waiting for something to happen and Austen fans may not enjoy the idea of someone reworking the book. I'm somewhere in the middle, not an avid Austen or zombie fan but enjoy both. But it doesn't work for me either. Still a little confused. I'd much rather have read the original and would recommend everyone else to do the same.

Erik I always wondered how this could possibly be any good. The zombie rewrites seemed so gimmicky - and I don't think I've ever seen a gimmick in a book work well.
