Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance-now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem! (Quirk Classics)
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance-now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem! (Quirk Classics)
by Jane Austen
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.27

5.0 out of 5 stars Great zombie carnage in a regency setting, 13 Sept. 2012
Okay, this was a smash hit a while back and the word of mouth was good. I bought it some time ago and only had the time to look at it recently. I enjoyed it a lot and thought some of the setpieces were wonderful. There is a fantastic scene in a ninja dojo that was downright superb - very much a new take on Austen's typical heroines.

Was it worth the hype? Not sure, but it might me laugh quite a bit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Choice thriller with some gripping moments, 13 Sept. 2012
This review is from: The Life (Hardcover)
This has the usual Cole elements that make me keep on reading her work. It's pretty tense and very gruesome in places, but that's what I want after a tough day. This has a lot of noir pieces to it and you won't find anything that runs along serial elements in anything like such an efficient way. This is quite heavy going in the middle when some of the sub plots become a little tangled, but otherwise it's very good.

The best thing I like about browsing on Amazon is finding things I wouldn't ordinarily read. The last book from Amazon I read was the hilarious Sherlock Holmes and the Flying Zombie Death Monkeys, which was basically a lot of extremely funny jokes with some good action in it. Four quick stories that I read on the way to work - good choice. After so much genre fiction that does what it says on the tin and no more, it was refreshing to encounter a completely new take on an area that might seem ridiculous but was in fact extremely enjoyable.

But I digress. For a good summer read "The Life" did the job nicely, although it isn't one of her best. Until the next James Ellroy this will do fine, and an enjoyable few hours in the evening. Good call.
