The novel in itself wasn't bad, but I was just hoping for color. Sometimes it was difficult to understand what was happening and the art work was a bit annoying in that way, but overall it was a fun read and I would recommend it. 4 out of 5 stars. ( )

I'm not done, but so far this is just the same P&P&Z story accompanied by a bunch of black and white unfinished sketches. Not impressed yet.

ETA: I'm finished. The same review holds true. The story is still good, but the graphic novel was nothing special.
I had a lot of trouble differentiating between the sisters, Charlotte and house guests. Everyone - save Jane - had the same hair color. I just had to keep reading and eventually hope I'd figure out who was speaking. Even a little bit of color in the panels would have been a drastic improvement. ( )

I can't believe how he destroyed one of the best books in the world! But it was fun to read as well! I'm not a fan of Zombies, but anything with "Jane Austen" on it is a must for me. ( )

I tried to read this book and wanted to like it, but was quite disappointed. The illustrations weren't very good. Most of the Bennett sisters looked very similar and it was difficult to tell which character was supposed to be which. While I love a good retelling of a classic and am a fan of zombie apocalypses, this book missed the mark. ( )

If you’re a Janeite, or even if you’re not, I’m sure you know about the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies craze by now. I’m sure that many of these mashups were in development before PPZ and were released once it was known there was an audience, but many of them have not had the same success as the original. I’m one of the more accepting of the craze myself, but I still find myself rolling my eyes as more and more books join the fray. Having read this graphic novel adaptation of the work that started it all, it seems like an attempt to join in on the cash cow–one that doesn’t seem to have worked quite that well.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345520688, Paperback)

It is known as “the strange plague,” and its unfortunate victims are referred to only as “unmentionables” or “dreadfuls.” All over England, the dead are rising again, and now even the daughters of Britain’s best families must devote their lives to mastering the deadly arts. Elizabeth Bennet is a fearsome warrior whose ability with a sword is matched only by her quick wit and even sharper tongue. But she faces her most formidable foe yet in the haughty, conceited, and somehow strangely attractive Mr. Darcy. As the two lovers meet in the ballroom and on the battlefield, they’ll soon learn that nothing—not even bands of ninjas, hordes of flesh-eating zombies, or disapproving aunts—can stop true love.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:21:33 -0400)

A mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton--and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she's soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy.… (more)
