Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by, Seth Grahame-Smith

5899779

“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, an expanded edition of the beloved Jane Austen novel featuring all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem. 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 arrival of 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 blood-soaked battlefield. Can Elizabeth vanquish the spawn of Satan? And overcome the social prejudices of the class-conscious landed gentry? Complete with romance, heartbreak, swordfights, cannibalism, and thousands of rotting corpses, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies transforms a masterpiece of world literature into something you’d actually want to read

Sammy Loves Books’ Review

4 “Zombie Loving” Stars

save yourself

Oh what a humorous re-telling of one of my most favorite love stories. Neatherfield is overrun with zombies, which are referred to as unmentionables, and Mr Darcy is a well respected zombie killer.

Elizabeth Bennet and her sisters are well known for their training in the fine art of zombie killing. But Lady Catherine shows no respect to Elizabeth because she was never tutored by a Japanese samurai, but received her training from a Chinese Master.

zombie chic

The Zombies during this time love brains. The Bennet sisters are constantly having to defend themselves from the unmentionables. This book is a perfect retelling of Pride and Prejudice with the addition of zombies, samurai swords, beheadings, and Braaaaains!!!!

This book is loaded with humor and there are even pictures. My favorite is when Elizabeth gets pissed with Mr. Darcy after his proposal and roundhouse kicks him into the fireplace mantle!! Hahahahahahahahahaha

If you love Pride and Prejudice, have a great since of humor, and LOVE zombies, This is a Must Read!!!

About Sammy Loves Books

I believe in living life to the fullest! Goodreads and Reading Haven provide a wonderful forum for discussing books. I have been exposed to amazing novels and authors I would have never known existed. Books are my favorite form of entertainment and I love writing reviews. I mostly enjoy Paranormal and Historical Romances but have recently broadened my tastes to include Dark Erotica and Gay Romance. I'll read any type of love story if a good friend recommends it to me. Recently, I discovered that I enjoy book editing. It's a hobby of mine actually. When I'm not curled up with a book you may find me swimming. I enjoy wine tasting, football, horror and action flicks. I'm tactfully honest with a wicked sense of humor. I believe in treating people with respect and love. I very rarely will give a book 5 stars unless it Wows me and just knocks me off my feet!! Occasionally, however, I will review Monster erotica books and I use a different rating system for those books. Monster erotica can not be judged against, or even compared to Romance novels. 5 Star monster erotica means it was highly erotic (made me want to be the heroine) and very well written/edited. 4 Star monster erotica is steamy but does not melt your panties. It is also well written/edited. 3 Stars means I enjoyed it, but the erotica was not very stimulating. The writing may not have flowed smoothly. 2 star monster erotica is usually very elementary in plot and world building. The sex is not erotic and the love scenes are short and non descriptive. 1 star monster erotica is torturous to read. The monster may stink, the sex is horrendous or painful, and the writing is often bad, with poor or no editing. So when you see a 5 star rating on a monster sex book, just know that scale has a Very different standard. Follow My Reviews at http://readinghaven.me
