Death Comes to Pemberley: P.D. James's dated, drown-out addendum to Austen's Pride and Prejudice - adds murder but hardly any intrigue

I'm not proud of the fact that I'd have been quite prejudiced and probably not read this book had I known that P.D. James is 91 years old. However, it would've been a good thing had I known.

Jane Austen's greatly celebrated work is now 200 years old. I guess that gives everyone a free rein to write postscripts, addendums, sequels and whatever else they can get away with to the famous classic.

For stomachs not hardened enough, Pride And Prejudice And Zombies won't do so we now have Pride, Prejudice and Murder in Death comes to Pemberley. And it is for tender stomachs. It moves slow and belabors. Long conversations in old language. And the murder? Well, yes, there is a murder but no intrigue. There is a mystery but nothing mysterious.

Note to self: Don't read a book just because there is a murder in it!
