    "My daughter really enjoyed this book. She read Pride & Prejudice beforehand, so it was predictable, but it was more of a tribute than a copy. I skimmed through some of it and the writing seems pretty good, and it should be enjoyable for a wide age group."

    "I went into this book pretty skeptical because I generally think it's a sin to piggy back off of Pride and Prejudice, but this was pleasantly surprising. It was a light, fun read that most Pride and Prejudice fans should enjoy."

    "I read this book back in college and liked it a bit. However, I found most of the stories too unrealistic and quite frankly unbelievable. I can't say that I enjoyed it but I think some people might like it. "

    "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a rather strange book inspired by Pride and Prejudice. If you are into zombies then this is a great twist on the Pride and Prejudice story. However, I wouldn't say that it should be included in the list of best books inspired by Pride and Prejudice. Using zombies goes too far for me."

    "After watching the movie on PBS many years ago, the character of Darcy has stuck in my mind, as a romantic lead, who's hubris contributes to his own downfall. Exploring what life might be like after marriage with these two characters would be a fun romp potentially. "

    "These Three Remain provided extensive insights into Pride and Prejudice, the work that inspired it. It recounts Pride and Prejudice through the eyes of Fitzwilliam Darcy. It did a great job of conveying the story of Darcy's relationship to Elizabeth Bennet. Very interesting book for those who are interested in Pride and Prejudice."
