I woulde because I felt lost a few times on the first listen. It's a very fun story if you're into some british humor mixed with zombies.
I loved when the zombie came up out of the water. Great zombie discription!
No. Not sure if the accent is real of not.
Nope. Perfect name.
Loved the narrator! She made the characters come to life. A great book narrated by a great reader!
The COMBINATION of ninjas, shaolin warriors, zombies and the Pride ans Prejudice milieu is so surprising, refreshing, and humorous. I laughed out loud and really marvelled at the talent of the authors in this series who stay true to the spirit of Pride and Prejudice structure. I will definitely give these three books another listen, especially when I need something completely different and humorous.
I like books that draw me in and keep me engrossed. I enjoy all of Molly Harper's books. For engrossing, it has to be The Ladies # Detective Agency series set in Botswana. Ender's Game. by Scott Card. The whole Dune series.
Katherine Kellgren is a marvel! She brings each of the characters to life. In this volume I loved watching Kitty coming in to her own.
Give yourself a gift of humor and a complete break from your normal routine.
I would, it was a funny spin on an old classic.
I just loved how it was an everyday thing to deal with the dead.
There were several compelling character's. It would be hard to pick just one.
I would like to make it a group dinner because all the characters were cool.
It was very interesting to see Zombies during the Civil War Era!
I LOVED every minute of this book! Katherine Kellgren performed it brilliantly! I couldn't have been more entertained!
I enjoyed this book, which allowed the writer freedom to explore the "mash up" aspects established in PaPaZ. It ties in especially well with Dreadfully Ever After (the best of the series). The characters have more depth, and there's enough of Austen's spirit in them to create winking portraits of Regency-era England, the Bennett family, and social foibles.
I was somewhat skeptical about being able to make it through this book without a lot of eye-rolling, but decided to give it a try. Within the first five minutes, I was hooked. The performance given by the narrator is energetic, hilarious and pitch-perfect. Don't even consider reading this one on your own- the performance is not to be missed. Be careful listening to this one on the sneak unless you are practiced at stifling loud guffaws.
I must admit I somehow managed to skirt ever having to read the original text or any Jane Austen in high school or college lit, and thank heavens. I had a college roommate who insisted on reading it aloud to me and I hated every minute of it. This combination of zombie and classic made it wonderfully interesting for me. The narrator's high pitched and seemingly over-Anglified accent drove me batty at first, but once you get into the story you start to associate her voice(s) with that of the characters, so much so that when I tried to read the text when my MP3 battery was low, I found I couldn't do it. I NEEDED to hear the narrator reading me into my trance. It's just the right blend of the boring English countryside politics and drama mixed with a bit of comedy, unspoken love, and ZOMBIES to make it a great read/listen. It is well worth the credit. I will now explore the other "classics" that have been monster-fied.

Now adding to a Jane Austen novel is one thing, but creating one in that particular vein while using beloved characters and continuing to add zombie mayhem is another. However, this was done well! I really enjoyed this book and thought the author knew their Austen prose. Again, who can go wrong with the Bennett girls learning to fight zombies for the Queen? It was good stuff, this attempt at the pre-Darcy, pre-Lydia downfall and pre-really annoying Mrs. Bennett. Loved it!
I was looking forward to listening to this book after reading all the raving reviews. However, I was very disappointed. I didn't get into the story. I was bored listening to the first few chapters and gave up.
