    I’m only half way through Pride & Prejudice and Zombies but…so far I love it!!! I never would have thought this classic would have been written with zombies in it…but it’s still P&P but with hilarious entertainment!It’s deadly, funny, and brilliant! Still very P&P but with zombies!

  • Tan

    I somehow managed to write Entertainment….wrong….in my previous post…maybe I should pay attention to lecture.

    Hard to believe, that anyone would give him anything when the new content in this crapfest amounts to only 10% of the book. A total and unmitigated ripoff and an insult to zombie novels.

    Just when I thought humanity couldn’t sink any lower.

    Really raingod? An insult to zombie novels? Are there that many around?

    Oh, lighten up, you windbags. Like you can really argue that the idea of Abe Lincoln fighting vampires isn’t stirringly patriotic.

  • Jennie

    I think what a lot of you elitist windbags are completely missing is that this book totally takes the p i s s out of the stuffiness that is Jane Austen fandom–you know, the people who read her books over and over and over again and can’t imagine anything else attaining their pinnacle of literary achievement (*barf*). It’s actually a wonderful little satire, but I guess that goes over all your pompous, stuffy little heads. Oh, well. Your loss.

  • raingod

    well Jennie, the only windbag I see here is you; you’ve managed to totally miss the point of the criticism. Why don’t you stick to your books with pictures.

    I love this book. It opens the pantheon that is horror to new uncharted realms. This book will not only spark continued interest in reading, it will spark interest in the original. I love the discussion Q’s in the back. I can see book clubs popping up all over discussing this and future endeavors. Keep it coming, I’m loving this.
