Book review.

So, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I enjoyed it! There was one passage, in particular, where I giggled helplessly and hysterically for more than five minutes. I don't want to give that plot twist away or I'd tell you what it is. However, here's the thing. If this were another book, you'd get bored with the zombies about a third of the way through and say, "Well, that was amusing" and put it down. But because it's Pride and Prejudice, you can't. It's not that you're gripped to find out what's going to happen with the zombies. You're gripped to find out what's going to happen to Elizabeth and Mr. matter how many times you've read it or seen the A&E miniseries. Jane Austen is a genius.

Lady Catherine de Bourgh as England's finest zombie hunter is pretty funny, too.

It's so funny! I still haven't finished it though...
(But I did read another Vicky Bliss book yesterday!)
