“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.
A darkly comic classic
This is an amazing book, a darkly comic mash-up of Pride and Prejudice meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer. A must read!
Major waste of time and paper!
I was really excited to read this book, really I was! However the choppy story line mixed with the editing skills of an eight year old killed my enthusiasm within the first five chapters. As I read through the book, the odd "oriental" (Asian) twists kept throwing the story line off in different directions, making this less a classic/thriller and more a convoluted attempt to capitalize on the growing "zombie" trend.
The storyline is quite hard to understand when there's is a lot of side conversations going although I haven't finished the book it's, fairly good, what I mostly understand is probably the actual zombie attack scenes haha:)
