I'm excited about this. I love a good zombie book (Which is so hard to find!) and it'll be a nice contrast to the book that I just finished. My only concern is this sentence in the summary "But as the days crawl by, the motivations for survival change in startling ways and soon the group’s fate is determined less
and less by what’s happening outside and more and more by the unpredictable and violent bids for life—and death—inside. " While that is wonderfully written, dear god please don't let this be a Dawn of the Dead-meets-Lord of the Flies story. Dawn of the Dead is a great zombie story because although it's about a group of people who get stuck in a mail, it still remains mostly about the zombies waiting outside. This book I'm afraid will be less about zombies and more about teen drama and power lust. Gag. However, that is a pre-judgement and I truly hope that I'm proven wrong.
You really get Jane Austen from this book, especially PERSUASION. The book was a bit confusing at first and it took some time for me to get a firm grasp on all of the history and terms. However, at some point it just suddenly clicked. Once I actually sat down to read, I finished this book in a matter of days. When I wasn't reading it, I wanted to. Very good read. Highly recommended for fans of Jane Austen-- even fans of just the movies. Watch for my full review here: http://www.youtube.com/user/TheBookVl...

Yeah, this isn't that sort of novel. She couldn't defend herself against an attacker, but I don't see her just lying down without a fight either. However, that sort of discussion doesn't really fit in with this book. I will say that she's a hard worker, so she could never be a true damsel.
