The Bennet girls are highly trained zombie killers who are trying to keep the countryside safe from the monsters who are causing chaos everywhere but their mother is still obsessed with having them all married. Amid the parties and the slaughter,the girls discover love, betrayal, prejudice and a lot of monster decapitation...
This was good fun to read. The main story of the original book is there but the added zombie humour and Elizabeth's love of violence are very entertaining! I particularly enjoyed the Charlotte wedding, Lydia's afflicted husband and the rampaging zombies disturbing the girls lives. Mrs Benet is as annoying here as in the other book but Mt Benet is much funnier. Elizabeth is the real star and her rejection of Mr Darcy leads to a great scene! I'll be looking for a copy of Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters next.
