Funny review

I came across this paragraph from a review on Amazon for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. It's the fourth review down in the one-star section. Now I like Jane Austen quite a bit, but I still found this amusing:

I didn't read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies because it seemed kind of gimmicky (not necessarily a terrible thing, but not an awesome thing in a book, either), but mostly because I loathe Jane Austen. Yes, I admit it: I am a Jane Austen loather. You can go ahead and take away my girl credentials now (I really wasn't using them, anyway). I like my husband's take on Jane Austen, "They're books where a couple of really rich people like each other, play hard to get, finally marry and own a third of Europe." Heh.
