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.
This edition features sixteen pages of color stills from the film, a reading group discussion guide, and other bonus materials.
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.
It was a fun combination of Jane Austen and zombies. I love anything with zombies and I have been meaning to read this book since it was first published. I never did and ended up watching the movie first. I was hoping the book was better, as it usually is, and I wasn’t disappointed. Am reading the series and thoroughly enjoying myself.
an old tale
i watched the movie before i read the book.the movie kind of helped me read the book because it can be a hard read because of its time it was written,but then there are of course parts that weren't in the movie. i loved the book but not at the same time.i loved the story but it was a pain to read.you have to have patience to read it. But i loved the romance and the hint of zombie in the mix ;)
This book has taken me so long to read... because it's just not enjoyable for me. There's a huge disconnect between the actual story and the zombie story. I feel that it could have been a lot better if the zombie portions of the story were transitioned better and there was better editing. It's a book you definitely have to read yourself and not depend on the ratings because the reviews are all over the place.
