Synopsis: 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. Can Elizabeth vanquish the spawn of Satan? And overcome the social prejudices of the class-conscious landed gentry?

Review: This was a great book. I am a huge fan of both Jane Austen and of Zombies. I have read the original Pride & Prejudice and I loved it. I found it hard sometimes, they do a lot of walking, but it is hands down my favourite Jane Austen book.

This is just a fun take on the original story. You have the same story with Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy, but once in a while they have to stop to kill a bunch of zombies. How awesome is that!? You get the blood and gore and the love and romance all in one.

Even if you are not a Austen fan I know you would like this book. There are friends of mine who are huge fans of these remakes but will never pick up a Austen book. Plus with all the good zombie stuff out there right now you can not go wrong with this. You get the history with a bit of fun.

It’s not so gruesome that teens can’t read it. I wouldn’t give it to any younger than teens but I think it’s something they would really enjoy.

Plus it’s also coming out as a movie next year so maybe this is something that can help get them reading again.  Final-UK-quad-600x450

This is a fun, fast read that you should pick up. I bet you would enjoy it 🙂
