Pride and Prejudice and Zombies?
I think the next time someone does this sort of mockup, they should hire a doctor to go through the mechanics of zombiehood. It just seems inconsistent. Although the collaborator attempts to replicate Austen's prose, I found myself relishing her sparring of manners all the more. An interesting idea, and it did get me to go back to my classic. But even the new, improved version with lots of mayhem simply adds in more grating references to swords and threats. I did become used to the zombies as I progressed, and there is some sweet justice meted out to those who cross Elizabeth.
