Book Overview

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. What ensues is a delightful...

Amazing!!!

The only Pride and Prejudice worth reading.

Unbelievably bad

I am a Jane Austin fan but I’m also a fan of zombies. I thought this book would be amusing but it is so poorly written. I realize that writing something as well as Austin could, is a high bar, but this doesn’t even come close. I’m notorious for finishing a book even if I’m not enjoying them. I couldn’t get past the 2nd chapter. I’m hugely disappointed because it could have been such a great series. If only the quality of writing had been better than a junior high student could write.

Love P & P, Love P & P & Z, and am a boy...

Janu Austen is excellent, but ZOMBIES make everything better. For those of us who love the book and can sit through the miniseries in one sitting, anything P & P is excellent. This is just another addition to the wonderful story that is P & P. It is nice to laugh at yourself every once in a while. Seeing the characters in this hilarious situation is refreshing. I just feel bad for all the high schoolers who will fail english because they choose to read this instead of the real one...

Ok, so I'm not the biggest Jane Austen fan, but...

... but... 1) It is an excellent mashup 2) It has freaking Zombies... I mean 'unmentionables' 3) I started reading it in the local store this afternoon and have wasted most of the afternoon reading it. 4) Did I mention the Zombies? If you like 'Good Omens' you'll like this. If you like 'Shaun of the Dead' you'll like this. If you're literate you'll like this. If you're a zombie you probably won't

P & P Fan, LOVE This

The literary community should never be too proud to laugh at itself. I own three copies of the original "Pride & Prejudice" plus all the movies, so my husband and I bought this the moment we spotted it on the shelf (and laughed all the way to the register). Fans need to read this book tongue-in-cheek and prepare to laugh WITH it. If you don't like zombies or consider yourself a Jane Austen purist, if you admire only the most intricate writing and consider this sort of work irreverent, then you'll be appalled more than amused. The level of writing IS degenerated from the original but, considering the subject matter, I don't think "quality" was the forethought of the day. "Brains" is more like it. On a literary note, the juxtaposition of familiar classic and farcical horror makes for harmless, laugh-out-loud comedy. I applaud this idea and hope the "Quirk Classics" line hammers out more spoofs on stories I love. The only thing I find annoying is the last line of the blurb: "transforms a masterpiece of world literature into something you'd actually want to read." I'm perfectly capable of enjoying BOTH, thankyouverymuch.

I have been redeemed...

After suffering through Pride and Prejudice in a women's lit class in high school, being one of the three males in the class, and undergoing much embarrassment for my lack of understanding of the subject matter, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is bittersweet redemption. It was very nice while reading this to feel as though I am exacting revenge on Jane Austen's literary masterpiece by not only understanding the work but also enjoying a pseudo-perverse amalgamation of her work and a horror/comedy film. No doubt some Austen fans will cry "heresy" at what Seth Grahame-Smith has done, that is take a classic piece of literature and splice in zombie references, but I think others will accept this work as the kind of flattery that it is to Ms. Austen. Others, like myself, who were intellectually incapable of understanding the works of Jane Austen, will feel sweet vindication from enjoying her great work with a smidgen of added immaturity. There is no doubt that Grahame-Smith has accomplished something incredibly innovative with this work, possibly spawning a new literary-classic-remade-hilarious genre, and there is also no doubt that he has done so very well. I recommend this book for anyone who enjoys comedy, zombies, and classic women's literature- and I never thought I would recommend anything on those terms.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies in Get It Twisted
Get It Twisted
Published by Ashly Moore Sheldon • October 30, 2019

Happy almost Halloween! It's also the anniversary of the publication of Jane Austen's classic Sense and Sensibility, so we thought we should find a way to celebrate both—a bit of a mash-up, if you will. In fact, mash-up is kind of the perfect word to describe the books we are highlighting this week.

32 TEEN HORROR BOOKS - Are You Afraid of the Dark?
Published by Melina Lynne • October 26, 2015

Vampires, werewolves, monsters, zombies, wizards, witches, and all things that go bump in the night. These topics used to be relegated to fiction pulled out in the fall to get us geared up for Halloween, but now have their own presence in the literary world. So how did they make the leap from October reading material to year-round "go to" reads? I have three words for you: teen paranormal fiction, and I’m not just talking about books, or in our case, used books like Twilight and Harry Potter. Sure, Stephanie Meyer and J.K. Rowling made it “cool” again to write about fantastical elements. It helps that these are usually easy reads and always leave us wanting more; another series, another set of characters, and another chance to further our paranormal addiction.
