  Awful!

Tediously slow paced. I was intrigued how the addition of zombies into a classic such as Pride & Prejudice would work..........it didn't. Save your money.

  Rubbish.

As a die hard lit geek, I had to read this, it looked very promising. However, after chapter 2, like the previous reviewer said, it was not only boring, but also made me feel like one of the brainless zombies described in the book- brainless because of the monotonous pace of the plot. If your an Austen fan, dont read it, it'll put you off. If your a zombie fan, dont read it, there isnt enough gore. on the whole, the author took a good book and killed it.

  Highly entertaining

This book encompasses the classic tale that is Pride and Prejudice as well as introducing a brand new 21st century twist to it. It is beautifully written and doesn't read as much different to the original. Having read the original as well, there are certain parts of the story that make the tale funnier especially the parts involving Mr Collins and the tale of Mr Wickham.
A very good read.

  Not as funny as it looks.

Certainly a very funny idea but the joke wears quite thin after about two chapters.

Very cleverly done. An excellent read and hilarious. Being a fan of zombies and Pride and Prejudice(P&P), I found the plot clever and the macabre twists were smoothly done.

Some of the stuff i found funny because I've read P&P so I noticed a lot more of the humorous ideas which others may miss, buy it none the less. :D

I think that this book should be included in the a-level english literature course, because students need to be interested in the book that they are reading. The books used today are depressing and boring and drag on endlessly, and end with practically everyone dead...but if they included this book, i would certainly take interest!!!
It has the original dialogue (i love eloquent speeches), it has ninjas!!! It has them speaking eloquently about ninjas...it has zombies! (Which is far more interesting than people just dying...or gettting revenge etc.) and it has women fighting zombies! Whereas the men just stand by. Which is probably a bit feminist...

But hey...
It's good!

:D
