Pride and Prejudice and Zombies By Seth Grahame-Smith

I do enjoy Jane Austen and Pride and Prejudice is my favorite of her novels.  Yes, I do enjoy horror movies.  There is honestly nothing I like better than the "thrill & scare" that a horror movie gives.  Then I saw this book and my first thought was "OMG! Brillant!". Then I read it and I was like, "OMG! NO!" 

The idea was good but you just cannot change Jane Austen! YOU CANNOT DO IT! In my imagination I cannot see Elizabeth Bennet as a martial arts expert taking down the "stricken" at every turn.  Then there is Mr. Darcy (whom is still my first book crush) and make him into the monster-hunter.  I cannot see it!

I will give Grahame-Smith one thing, it was an awesome idea.  The book is very descriptive and if you like the "old-world" feel with ninjas then this is your book,  For me, it was a NO!

I will just stick with the class Jane Austen, Elizabeth Bennet, and Mr. Darcy.
