Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance - Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!: by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith : Because we all know that that's what was really missing from Pride and Prejudice all along -- zombies! I actually cannot make up my mind if I'm going to read this. I kind of like the idea of it. Maybe I'd be sure if it were vampires, I don't know. I'm not that big into zombies.

Just the idea of it is wonderful! I don't know how someone came up with the idea of combining Jane Austen and zombies.

This does not sound like something I'd enjoy at all! ;) However, I see you're reading The Likeness. Whoohooo! What a great book. I just posted my review here. Hope you enjoy the book as much as I did. It's my first 5/5 this year!

I just finished The Likeness -- I loved it! Maybe more than In the Woods.

Thank you for your kind words.

I am definitely not an Austen purist but the sound of this book is quite frankly, weird! I may have to take a peek at it in the bookshop - I cannot imagine how it could be done :-0

It is totally weird! I cannot imagine what made someone think, "Humh -- I should combine Austen and zombies -- that would make the perfect novel!"

I think this looks hysterical - I'm hoping someone gives it to me for my birthday. If not, I'm just going to go buy it.

I just finished this book and really, I loved it. If you don't mind a little zombie killing or brain eating, you'll enjoy it.

At least it's completely written in the same Jane Austen style - even with dismemberment, it's done tastefully. And you still want Elizabeth and Darcy to get together in the end, but will they? I kept wondering if the zombies would get her, just to make it a bit different.

Totally recommend it!
