Although I know the original Jane well and have loved to read the it over uane over again. I truely loved this adaption! The reader did and awesome job! When Pride and Prejudice and Zombies came out, I was excited. I was giddy with the thought that two of my beloved favorites would mesh, much like the pairing of peanut butter and chocolate, into a wonderful new creation.
Sherri Browning Erwin manages the feat: But I had seen movies so I just thought I had.
This version is very enjoyable, the narrator is superb and skayre all who enjoy these old english stories, I can recommend this one, although a little bit bloody.

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Slayer. Sincere approach to characters and no over-acting. Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting? I’m not sure if someone who isn’t familiar with the story of Jane Eyre would completely appreciate this novel, but they would still garner some entertainment from it. I couldn’t stop listening. I love the story of Jane Eyre it is one of my favorite classics.
The fact that they were able to add all these extra elements to alter the story but at the same time stayed true to the story won me over. I wish they had made this into a movie verison rather than Pride, Prejudice and zombies.
Would you listen to Jane Slayre again? I really enjoyed the actual story in this book. The narration puts me out like a light. Which is odd because janw narration by Rosalyn Landor I have loved. Perhaps it is just the combination of the two. I will have to download the digital book to finish the story.
