pride and prejudice and zombies

pride and prejudice and zombies

There are some books whose opening lines stick in your head.  “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…” 

Oh sorry wrong book…This one actually starts with “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains…”

Just finished reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith.  Definitely give it a thumbs up.  I really liked it and found it really entertaining and funny.  I think whether you are a Jane Austen/Pride and Prejudice fan or not you’ll still like this book.  The writing style is still very Jane Austen, but the way the topic of zombies is incorporated into the story line seems very natural and it works.  I had added amusement when reading it because I have read the original “Pride and Prejudice”, so looking for the variations on the original content was pretty funny at times.  And as an added surprise…ILLUSTRATIONS!!  This is a fun read and I recommend it.  I was hooked from the first page.  Great twist on a classic!
