Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance - Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!is pretty much exactly what it says it is - the text from Austen's classic work with numerous and sometimes random references to zombies, combat skills, and lots of mayhem and violence.
I have to admit I couldn't resist checking this book out. I thought it would be a good laugh and an interesting twist on the original story. Well, the first several pages were funny and then the gore, violence, and repetitive references began to just annoy me. I started skimming pages, reading my favorite scenes from the original, hoping they weren't materially changed (they weren't). I just didn't want to finish it, though. Too much of the same. And the violence was pretty vile as well. People who enjoy zombie violence and humor will get a kick out of it (especially if their wife or girlfriend loves the book/movie) and then they might even know the general outline of the story.
Mr. Darcy, Vampyreby Amanda Grange (love the title, probably won't pick it up)
(that I noticed)
He threw in a few crass jokes.
It was pretty gross. And descriptive.
