Pride and Prejudice and Zombies By Seth Grahame-Smith
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.
