The back cover blurb:

" 'It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in posession of brains must be in want of more brains.'

So begins Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, an expanded edition of the beloved Jane Austen novel featuring all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Maryton - and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she's soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers - and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield. Can Elizabeth vanquish the spawn of Satan? And overcome the social prejudices of the class-concious landed gentry? Complete with romance, heartbreak, swordfights, cannabalism, and thousands of rotting corpses, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies transforms a masterpiece of world literature into something you'd actually want to read."

This book is nauseating, disgusting and unreadable. I can't imagine how it ever got published and I cannot, in all concience, release it so it will be binned.

I read 41 pages and then looked at the end, hoping for some improvement but, alas ...

The cover is horrible and the illustrations are gross. I grew up with Edgar Alan Poe's "Tales of Mystery and Imagination" but they are a walk in the park compared with this abhorrent book.
