“It’s a romp of a book.”—McClatchy Newspapers
“Mixing taught horror-movie action with neo-Austen meditation on identity, society, and romance, this happy sacrilege is sure to please fans of Grahame-Smith's original mash-up.”—Publishers Weekly
“This is a must-read for the growing legion of alternate-Austen fans.”—Booklist
“Zombie-centric plot required to measure up to standards of both Austen and horror fans—no easy task. Now a NYT Best Seller, the book seems to have struck a chord with both.”—Techland

Of the new characters, I enjoyed Dr Keckilpenny (really, with a name like that, what's not to enjoy?) the most. First, because no one seems to get his name right (except for Lizzy), and second because he just seemed to be so friendly and so likable. Lord Lumpley played your average greaseball with a secret ' I especially enjoyed how he tried his advances on Jane, but to no avail. Then you get one of the most interesting characters I have ever seen, and that is Captain Cannon who uses four of his soldiers as arms and limbs (you have just to read it to get a good laugh). The moment I started reading about his arms and limbs made me laugh, but it made the book much more enjoyable with these kinds of new, strange yet quirky characters.Read more ›
What would I have wanted to know before purchasing this product? It's hilarious, it's not overly long, it's original, and there are multiple scenes not for the squeamish.
Very well done!
