did not like it

I saw an interview with this author. He explained how he took Jane Austin's text, electronic, and then inserted zombie passes in red. If a page had too much black script in it he knew he needed to insert more of his own writing. How is this NOT plagarism? You could take any book and do this.

After reading the book I did a youtube review. Wow, the reaction to my negative review brought all sorts of nasty comments. So I deleted it. My intent was not to get into a big argument or debate with a bunch of zombie lovers.

So I acknowledge that this book has a huge base of loyal fans. I'm not one of them.

Squee I like zombies, but I agree with you that this is straight up plagiarism. Even with copyright expiration, I don't understand how this was given they go-ahead by a publisher just on principle.
