ITEM#: 11538945'It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.' So begins Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, an expanded edition of the beloved Jane Austen novel featuring all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem. 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. Can she vanquish the spawn of Satan? And overcome the social prejudices of the class-conscious landed gentry? Complete with romance, heartbreak, swordfights, cannibalism, and thousands of rotting corpses, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies transforms a masterpiece of world literature into something you'd actually want to read.

As an English major, the Austen library was practically a graduation requirement. I've always enjoyed the story of the Bennet sisters, and was pleasantly surprised at how truly engaging the zombie additions really were. There is now zombie mayhem within nearly every paragraph, but not in an off-putting way. Seth Grahame-Smith does an excellent job of weaving in his allusions seamlessly, and you will be surprised at how the zombies seem to always have been part of Austen's vision. Also, the illustrations of Elizabeth killing zombies make for excellent conversation starters with the strangers who will inevitably be reading over your shoulder on the subway.Read More
