Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith


Date Read: 2010

Goodreads

“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.

My-Thoughts

I really enjoyed this book and love how it weaved in the original while adding the supernatural part to it. The zombies did not overwhelm the story but added a very fun antidote to what is basically the love story of Elizabeth and Darcy. I have to admit since I heard it was rumored that Natalie Portman is going to play Elizabeth in the movie version that I kind of read some parts going can she pull it off? I think she would be perfect for the role! I think if you love Pride and Prejudice and…more Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith: I really enjoyed this book and love how it weaved in the original while adding the supernatural part to it.
