I love P&P, and I love zombies, and I wanted to love this book, but I didn't. It seemed as though the author couldn't decide where to stick to the story and where to depart from it, and so we're confronted with some amazing anachronisms (the Bennett girls studying martial arts under a far eastern guru, for example) while some of the duller aspects of the book remain intact. It's a fun idea for a book--I just think the author could have put a little more thought into actually crafting a story around the P&P framework, instead of simply trying to paste a very modern idea over top of a very traditional story.
