I read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It was good. Not hilarious, but steadily entertaining. I definitely wouldn't have read the original, as I despise Victorian England romance-literature. I can't take bonnets, "oh, I say!", and tea for 400 pages.

Georgian and Regency.

Plus Austen isn't romance literature, she writes social satire.

I still can't take it. Not saying she's a bad author, but it's the sort of thing that causes me to look for the nearest pointy object and insert into the eye socket.

I'll take Wodehouse, thank you.

(And if you don't mind-- what is the difference between victorian/regency? One assumes the leaders, but more than that?)

Ooh tons.

Do you want politically, sartorially, architecturally, furnishings, morals & mores or literature? :)

It's like asking if there was any difference between the fifties and the seventies. Only about a decade apart but there was sooooo much that changed during that time.

The Regency was from 1811 to 1820. The Victorian period didn't start until 1837.

Bingo, but actually I do want to answer Kzinistzerg questions, I think it'd make a great entry for my blog. :)
