    1. I've not been reading much lately, what withwell, everything. Decided to wind myself in gently and read something which promised to be entertaining - plus I am a huge Jane Austen fan (poor, poor Jane)and I loved it! Quite a few groan-out-loud puns, some wit, quite a lot of running-about and a massive amount of Evil. This is a subversive look at the world of Jane A, her characters and tentacles, but no-one who isn't familiar with the whole Austen movement should allow themselves to be put off rea [...]

    2. Follow the link to watch my video review or you can read the script for that review down below.youtube/watch?v=l_C0NlMrs Darcy Versus The Aliens – Jonathan PinnockYou know that feeling when you're reading about how much Mr Darcy ardently admires our dear Miss Elizabeth Bennett, and you can't stop thinking 'man, this scene would be so much more romantic if Darcy just had tentacles!'. No? Well Jonathan Pinnock has provided it for you anyway.This stunningly hilarious book picks up where Pride and [...]

    3. 'The truth is out there, though it is not yet universally acknowledged’ I recently won a signed copy of Mrs Darcy Versus The Aliens, published by Salt’s science fiction and fantasy imprint, Proxima Books.I read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and it was fun for the first couple of chapters. But honestly, it was a cut and shut job. A sprinkle of zombie sentences within the original story. But Mrs Darcy Versus The Aliens by Jonathan Pinnock is different. Firstly, Mrs D is a sequel to the event [...]

    4. Unlike most typical Jane Austen remix/mashups, Mrs Darcy versus the Aliens completely reinterprets the material while staying, in my opinion, true to the Austen characters. Pride and Prejudice is one of my favourite books and I’m not a fan of most attempts to mess with it, but this alternative perspective on Elizabeth’s married life felt fresh and original – and it’s spit-your-coffee-out funny the whole way through. Definitely best for readers who don’t mind a few tentacles with their [...]

    5. Not quite as clever as Mr. Darcy, Vampyre, nor quite as funny as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, but still a fun read. Pinnock pits our beloved Elizabeth against invaders from another planet and, on the whole, it does well, but some of the pop-culture in-jokes will probably not age quite as well as the ones based on more classic areas. This really is a major mash-up, not just between Austen and aliens, but also time, as the Regency meets the Victorian age too.If you're a fan of mash-ups, especi [...]

    6. A humorous follow up to Jane Austen's 'Pride & Prejudice' but then you probably already know that. A fun, madcap read with aliens (duh!), tentacles, ghosts, alien babies and dirigibles (one of my favourite words), some of the humour had me laughing aloud and some groaning. Dude! Of course, I then had to relay the humorous bits to whoever was in the vicinity. An enjoyable read.

    7. A wonderfully funny book which combines the Austen world with tentacles!! A threatened alien invasion results in a romp of an adventure. My favourite bits are where historical characters collide with the story, especially the arrival of Byron and a commune based in Glastonbury.

    8. I was so disappointed with this book! I asked for it especially for my birthday, as I've read (and published) some of Jonathan Pinnock's other work. It just didn't work for me,the Austen pastiche isnt good enough to carry the story.

    10. it was different and I think some of its humour went over my head as I could tell it was supposed to be a play on words but didn't get the context.

    11. This could have been subtitled Carry on The Darcys!! Lots of wickedly filthy British humour and pop culture references. Sniggers aplenty from me lol! One of the better monster mash-ups around
