i tried to finish this. i only made it to page 100 and that was after skimming. after about 50 pages - the story becomes predictable. hey, we're going to go this person's house or this next town - what happens??!!?!! we're attacked by zombie hoards. we expell them quickly with our muskets and karate chops that we learned from this guy in china and hey, i'm not going to marry you because i can't give up my inner warrior but i kinda like this darcy chap even if he's sometimes a typical guy, but we're going to fall in love and fight zombies together.
