Description - Pride And Prejudice And Zombies by Jane Austen

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 comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers-and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead. Complete with 10 wonderfully graphic illustrations, this insanely funny expanded edition will introduce Jane Austen?s classic novel to new legions of fans.

Book Review: Pride And Prejudice And Zombies by Jane Austen - Reviewed by (22 Mar 2010)

This was recommended to me by someone who is a huge fan of Jane Austen. Another recommendation came from someone who HATES Jane Austen and felt that Grahame-Smith's additions fully redeemed Austen's own efforts. Taking a middle view on Austen's work I also thoroughly enjoyed this book so it seems safe to say it would be appreciated by all.

Imagine the formality and rigidity of life in Regency England, centred round a family consisting of a silly and fussy mother, a sensible but downtrodden father and their five unmarried daughters - just as Austen created them. But now imagine those same young ladies employed by the government to help wipe out the plague of zombies whose habits included eating brains and attacking all and sundry. Imagine the Bennett girls all taking concealed ankle daggers to Mr Bingley's ball and you can see that this is a very clever and funny version of the original.

It helps to have some knowledge of Austen's work to fully appreciate the book, but if you've watched one of the television or movie versions that is suffient to put this in context. I must admit to visuallising Dame Judi Dench reprising her role as Lady Catherine, now renowned as killing ninety zombies with only a wet envelope. I see her with elegant gown tucked into her waistband, slicing into zombies left and right with that indomitable look she does so well.

Great fun.
