Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dreadfully Ever After (Quirk Classics)

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dreadfully Ever After - Steve Hockensmith Still a fun read, though not as hilarious as the prequel, "Dawn of the Dead". If the prequel describes the back story of the sisters and their training in the martial arts, this sequel brings the readers in a post-apocalytic world where the sisters' training is once more needed--this time, to save Elizabeth's husband, who has been bitten by an unmentionable. The characters are more fleshed-out in this book, and I especially like the part about visiting the hospital and finding the ever-elusive cure. I wish the author went into that and described the hospital grounds more as it would have added to the over-all creepiness. The ending was also too abrupt. Also, the sisters may have been empowered, yet the sexism still shows through the description of the mother, who was silly and useless. A book such as this should probably not be seen in this light, but I'm afraid of the possible effects it may have on readers. All in all, a good read and a good end to the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies series!
