Seriously I laughed out loud at several points during this book. Now I am a HUGE Austen fan, as in I have read each of her novels NUMEROUS times, and have over 25 sequels, companions, rewrites, etc all of P&P. Addicted? Yes. But at least I admit it.

At first I wasn't sure if I was more curious or appalled at the idea of this book, but in the curiosity won out. And I am so glad I did. I thought it was hilarious.

Did it need more zombies? YES. I thought considering the premise that was a lack of zombie/character interactions. Frankly I though Lizzy would be having to kick ass every day, but still it was awesome. I really liked how the premise was woven into the characters lives and backgrounds.

All in all, just awesome. All Janeites should read it unless they are total purists.

Pickles I love Jane Austen and I love zombies. For me this book was a win/win. LOL. It definitely could have used a bit more zombie action, though.
