Elizabeth & Darcy: Zombie Killers

Just in time for Halloween: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies!

Um…what to say? When I first heard about this book, A quarter of me thought I should be outraged, the other three-quarters was insanely giggling at the very idea, and then there’s the very small uncounted minority of me that was throwing her fist in the air and screaming "Finally! This is the best idea ever!"

And now that I’ve read it? Well, actually, I still think it’s pretty awesome idea. It was weird reading it though, because the "zombie mayhem" fit into the story so seamlessly that I kept catching myself stopping after every line trying to remember how the original version went. The zombies just seemed to fit in so well! To be honest, I always found the original to be a bit dry at times and somewhat slow moving. The zombie addition speed things along quite nicely, while never taking away from the original story. I think that it’s a great way to introduce the classics to people who would otherwise ignore them. Good show!
