“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.” So begins Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, a bold reimagining of Jane Austen’s classic novel. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton—and the dead are returning to life. Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she’s soon distracted by the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers—and even more violent sparring on the bloodsoaked battlefield. Complete with romance, heartbreak, swordfights, cannibalism, and thousands of rotting corpses, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is an audacious retelling of English literature’s most enduring novel.
This movie tie-in edition features 16 pages of color stills from the film, a reading group discussion guide, and other bonus materials.
Jane Austen is the author of Sense and Sensibility, Persuasion, Mansfield Park, and other masterpieces of English literature. Seth Grahame-Smith is the author of the New York Times best seller Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter. He also wrote the screenplay for the Tim Burton film Dark Shadows. He lives in Los Angeles.
Ok so im so not a fan of classics but when the opportunity came to read this I just had to hop on the zombie train! And wow just WOW how well this worked is just beyond anything I could have imagined. I really can't wait to see this movie now! And just think just think how this time period would be if something like this had been going on.
I mean think how your marriages would have changed if the world would have been over run by Zombies? I don't think I would be worrying about singing, piano playing, etc. I would be looking for someone who could kick some Zombie A**!!!
And that is what this book does! With some great humor and wonderful action this book is for those who love classics and for those who love Zombies! Its the best of both worlds!
Now this edition of course is the movie tie in so it has some great pictures via the movie!
Thanks so much to @ for the review copy!
