“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
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.
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!!!
