Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies 

by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith

My youngest Son, Sabastian was always totally terrified of Zombies as a small child and his older siblings teased him terribly, even comedy like Shaun of the Dead he found  difficult to watch. But now being older he is changed and his mission is to destroy every cyber Zombie in every internet and xbox game.

This Book Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is about 85% original Pride and Prejudice with Zombie bits added, some of those bits fit remarkably well like the bit where Miss Lucas is bitten by the undead and agrees to marry Mr Collins as she will be in need of a husband to behead her at the end, this is quite sensible and answers the question of why anyone could possibly consider marrying Mr Collins.

On the other hand Lady Catherine de Bourgh as a ninja warrior woman is stretching it to snapping point! Zombies I can handle but one of the best villanesses ever being re-invented as a guru and role model to the Bennet girls – Purlease.

Read this for the fun of it, laugh and enjoy.

I am sure that the love story of Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam will be brought to a whole new generation, going into battle against Zombies is a pretty normal way to fall in love.

In keeping with my OCD, I have already purchased Dawn of the Dreadfulls (by Steve Hockensmith) which is set four years before Pride and Prejudice with Zombies.  Sense and Sensibility with Sea Monsters (by Ben H Winters) Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter  (also by Seth Grahame-Smith) – I am also on the look out for Mansfield Park and Mummies: Monster Mayhem, Matrimony, Ancient Curses, True Love, and Other Dire Delights (by Jane Austen and Vera Nazarian).

There is also available a set of 30 postcards of the girls doing there slaying in style. available from Chronicle Books LLC.

My Daughter loved the book and here is a picture of her in full on Zombie make-up, she is a Make-Up artist and often practices on her self, she has also done a rock group in  full on Zombie make up for a Halloween gig.  Below this I have also put a link to a brilliant Zombie short spoof red bull add that she did – she is awesome.
