Pride and Prejudice and Zombies - Seth Grahame-Smith Audiobook version. This book comes across exactly as the foreword indicates: The author who is no particular fan of Austen took the original text of the book and substituted chunks of text to include a zombie story. Even worse, the additions ape the worst of modern day historical romance. I don't get the fuss about this book. I thought it was awful and gave up about a quarter of the way in.
