OK, I don't know that I can adequately describe in this space how much I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! I think you first need to love Pride and Prejudice. Then, you need a sense of humor. Loving fantasy fiction wouldn't hurt. Roll this all together, and you get this wild ride of a book!! I cannot tell you the number of times I quite literally laughed out loud! (Confession time again--listened to the Audible version). Having said that (and small spoiler alert here**), whenever poor afflicted Charlotte Lucas tried to communicate in her half-zombie voice, I nearly drove the car off the rode I was laughing so hard! I already love Elizabeth Bennett, but when she cuts off the coach driver's leg to save him from the zombies, and then ninja-flips over the horses to lead them to safety, well, that's just icing on the cake. And, hey, can it hurt that we will get kids to actually READ Jane Austen (a LOT of the book is still P&P, after all!)? Seth, you're a genius (actually, I guess your agent is a genius, but your name is on the book, so take the credit, baby!) I'm thinking about doing a mash-up myself--Vanity Fairies anyone?
