This is a book with 319 pages, of which, when combined, perhaps 3-5 pages of the contents are very clever and amusing. Do not neglect the Reader’s Discussion Guide, which is perhaps the part of the book containing the utmost hilarity.

The rest of the book is the borrowed genius of Jane Austen, but because it is incorporated without the range and craft that authoress possessed, her best phrases and structure are merely repetitive.

By all means, read it (if you read quickly, or have nothing whatsoever else to do) for the sprinkling of fun you can find inserted herein; but expect much of your efforts to be unrewarded drudgery.

I expect the movie will be far more rewarding, and the zombies themselves to be able to play a more central role.
