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.
