I was shocked by how strong the anti-semitic sentiment was in this book. I was so put off by this that it ruined any enjoyment I might have had in the story. I realize that this book was written during a different time when people's beliefs were very different, but when is enough enough. Just as old way of thinking give way to new ideas so should old literature.
I think this book is hilarious. And if you are a parent who struggles with getting your child to go to sleep you understand. If you're one of those parents who claims they don't have this problem forget you go read Dr. Suess. I think, from now on, this is going to be my baby shower gift of choice. I may even read it to my daughter, but I will have to edit out the F bombs since she is only 7 and gets terribly offended when I curse.
This was a pretty typical Becky story, but the ending was sad. It made me wonder is the author was done with the series.
The story was good enough, but it is not Lady Susan. The author made too many changes to the characters.
I am a die hard P&P fan. I can quote dialogue from both the book and the movies. That being said, I Loved This Book. It is very funny and faithful to the original story despite the zombies running around the English countryside. I think my favorite parts were when the story would switch between the original and new text.
