All this author did was take Pride and Prejudice as written by Jane Austen and insert extra stuff. The zombie stuff is just so obviously tacked on. Gimicky. Stick to the original. There’s a reason it’s a classic.

I didn’t read this book for the longest time, probably because it was combining Pride and Prejudice-one of my favorite books-and zombies. The combo just didn’t seem to work for me. I’m not even sure now, after reading it, it does. The idea was good, I suppose, but it didn’t strike me as an exceptional book. All the author did was write a few scenes of fighting zombies-or fighting other humans. It seemed highly overrated. Saying that, it wasn’t a bad book, just not great. Still, read it just for the sake of saying you did.

For those of you who aren't quite willing to take on the subtle wittiness of Pride and Prejudice, how about adding brainsucking zombies and merciless ninjas to Elizabeth Bennet's endless heap of social anxiety? Now it sounds interesting, doesn't it? (You know it does.) Also read Its prequel, Dawn of the Dreadfuls, and another twisted Austen novel, Sense and Sensibility and Seamonsters.

This book has inspired me to read more Jane Austen because I enjoyed the story behind the zombie slaying and would definitely want to experience Austen without the gore. Don't get me wrong though. I loved this version and I thought it was very clever and well done. Read it!

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is one of the most beloved love stories of classic literature. Author Seth Grahame-Smith decided that the only thing that could improve the story was, naturally, zombies. And even die-hard fans of Jane Austen will be hard pressed to disagree. As our story begins, a mysterious plague is bringing the deceased back to life to roam the English countryside in search of fresh human brains. Miss Elizabeth Bennett, well-versed in both the feminine and the deadly arts, is content to defend her family against the zombie threat—until she meets the dashing, arrogant, equally-skilled Mr. Darcy. Scenes from the original Pride and Prejudice are intermingled with zombie mayhem. Darcy admires Elizabeth’s fine eyes at the Meryton ball; zombies attack. Elizabeth promenades at Pemberley; zombies attack. Elizabeth and Darcy are recast as scornful acquaintances occasionally united in battle against the moaning, groaning walking dead. And still, the classic romance unfolds exactly the way it’s supposed to. After all, nothing brings a couple together like fighting off zombie hoards.

As our story opens, a mysterious plague is causing England’s dead to rise from the grave and hunt the flesh of the living. Miss Elizabeth Bennet, well-versed in both the feminine and the deadly arts, is content to slay legions of the undead and defend her family—until she meets the equally skilled but oh-so-arrogant Mr. Darcy. The classic text of Pride and Prejudice is intermingled with episodes of zombie mayhem. Mr. Darcy admires Elizabeth’s fine eyes at the Meryton Ball; zombies attack. Elizabeth tours the grounds at Pemberley; zombies attack. The more familiar you are with Pride and Prejudice, the bigger the kick (or chop, or bite, or beheading) you’ll get from this from this hilarious and ridiculous brawl, but the premise is outrageous enough to peak the curiosity of even the staunchest Austen purist.

Our story opens on the Miss Bennets, five lovely sisters well-versed in both the domestic and deadly arts, as they fight to rid the English countryside of the zombie threat. Elizabeth Bennet is soon distracted from the undead by the arrogant Mr. Darcy. The beloved text of "Pride and Prejudice" is interspersed with scenes of zombie mayhem. Mr. Darcy admires Elizabeth's fine eyes; zombies attack. Elizabeth strolls through the grounds at Pemberley; zombies attack. It's ridiculous, hilarious, gross, and romantic all at the same time. Zombies really DO make everything a little more fun.

Synopsis via Amazon: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies features the original text of Jane Austen’s beloved novel with all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie action. 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...
