Introduction

The New York Times best seller is now a major motion picture starring Lily James and Sam Riley, with Matt Smith, Charles Dance, and Lena Headey. 

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. This expanded edition of the beloved Jane Austen novel featuring all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem begins when a mysterious plague falls 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. It’s the perfect read for literature lovers, zombie fans, and anyone who loves a reanimated Austen.

At first I thought the zombie aspect was silly and kind of funny, but it got old fast and just became ridiculous and annoying. Even more annoying was all of the supposed "dark arts" skills, which were... (read more)

  "Difficult to read"by Rebecca M. (see profile) 06/24/10

I was the only person to actually finish this book in my club. I can see why, it was challenging to make yourself read something that seems ridiculous and unecessary. I felt the zombie aspect of the... (read more)

  "Doesn't live up to the hype"by Elizabeth E. (see profile) 10/23/09

Our club had definite and differing opinions on this depending on whether or not we'd read the original. One member gave up after 50 pages because she hated the way Elizabeth was portrayed. Another member,... (read more)

 
  "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"by Kathy P. (see profile) 10/13/09

Like a funny skit that just goes on way too long, this gimmick got old fast.

 
  "Not what I expected, suprisingly interesting deviation from the original story"by Amanda J. (see profile) 10/09/09

I started this book scared that I would hate it. I was surprised that Seth was able to take a historically romantic story and add the elements of adventure and humor to it. I personally think this would... (read more)

 
  "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"by Sandy G. (see profile) 08/14/09

Written in the style of Jane Austen, this book follows Pride and Prejudice but adds the zombie element which adds even more humor to this well-loved story. You should read Pride and Prejudice before reading... (read more)
