Concept is better than the execution,

This review is from: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance-now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem! (Quirk Classics) (Paperback)
This is a great idea. Really, I wish I'd come up with it. Unfortunately, the writing doesn't really live up to the concept. The uneven use of language grates- zombies one minute, unmentionables the next, and althought there are some hilarious sections where the original text has been subtley altered to fit this more violent world, too much feels gratuitously grafted on.
One of the main problems is that Elizabeth comes across not as quick witted, but sociopathic, depriving the story of a central character to empathise with.
I finished it, but won't be reading it again.
