The funniest travel writer ever. Probably the 4th time I've read it.

I gave up on The Book Of Basketball around the time he got to Barkley and Malone in the pyramid. I just stopped caring what the guy thought anymore. I was gonna start in on The Art Of A Beautiful Game but slogging through Simmons book sucked the will to read about basketball from me.

And it's written in those short disjointed chapters, just like the real PnP, with the stuffy language that's particularly tricky with regard to describing zombie attacks. Mr. Darcy is a bad mo-fo though. And all of the daughters are well schooled in the deadly arts.

I'll stick it out.

haha, Ive seen the cover but never took the time to read it. My sister would love to go into an in depth conversation with you about it though im sure.

I was curious about Pride and Prejudice and Zombies but I have not picked it up since, like Thorp, I really dislike Victorian era material. Not that the Victorian stories arent good, they just dont appeal to my sensibilities.

I loved the way the story ended and the end actions of the main character. I hope you post your reaction to the ending, here, when you finish it.
