Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies | Jane Austen, Seth Grahame-Smith
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 Merytonand the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but shes 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 loversand 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? Complete with romance, heartbreak, swordfights, cannibalism, and thousands of rotting corpses, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies transforms a masterpiece of world literature into something youd actually want to read.

I‘m not a huge fan of retellings. But a rewriting of a classic book with zombies now worked in? Apparently I‘m a fan! I thought this was clever and fun and it definitely made me laugh in several places. I‘m glad I finally got to it!

This was HILARIOUS. I love P&P and this version was great. This spin had me laughing out loud constantly. I‘m not sure it was meant to be funny, but as my friend Pamela, said “I don‘t see how any book about zombies would be meant to be serious.” Book #63 in 2021

I enjoyed this far more than I expected to, and it definitely beats the film version of the same. It‘s the story of P&P, but England endures a plague of zombies and the Bennets are Shaolin-trained warriors. Kind of gruesome but quite funny. Lady Catherine is a ninja!! https://cannonballread.com/2021/08/pride-and-prejudice-and-zombies-elcicco/

Well! This audiobook broke me out of my reading slump 😎I‘ve always ignored it because I thought there was no way something with zombies would ever be my thing. I picked this up due to the #Pemberlittens watch parties and it was just so charming! Somehow they made it match the story and the reworked parts were well written and fun! Lizzy, Jane and Darcy were especially badass! Some fun jokes and an EPIC battle scene towards the end!

My first and only adaptation I‘ve read of the original and it was worth it. A little more gruesome and alteration in the characters storyline considering the theme of the story but I‘d read it again.
I‘ll be watching the movie next but something about watching a different Darcy that isn‘t Macfadyen or Firth feels weird. Macfadyen is my forever Darcy! 😍

I can‘t help give this a pick: it‘s Jane‘s Pride and Prejudice, chapter for chapter, with (as the title and cover hint so delicately) zombies added in. The Bennet girls are badass zombie killers (as is Darcy and even Lady Catherine?!), Wickham gets a satisfying end, and Lydia is still a twit. The zombie additions are funny, and I loved the little sexual innuendos sprinkled throughout.

Looking forward to the movie!

⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

This is a soft pick. The thing I liked most about it is also why it‘s a soft pick - it‘s the actual P and P text verbatim with a few zombie bits sprinkled in here and there. Feels like about 80% Jane 20% zombies. The juxtaposition is quite jarring and funny especially on audio but it‘s a little underwhelming. #Scarathlon2020 #TeamHarkness Team Theme Read, plus 11 hours for #Screamathon and #Gothtober Bones prompt.

Mehso-so

There are some very funny moments, particularly in the first quarter, but mostly this is just P&P with a few insertions about zombies and juvenile jokes about balls and pooping. Lizzie is also turned into a homicidal maniac, and others, including Darcy, are cruel and violent; most of that isn't even humorous. It might have been less boring if I hadn't just read P&P.

DAB It wasn't so bad. I kinda like it a lot. 2y

And since it‘s the actual Austen text with zombie stuff inserted in, you don‘t have to pay too close attention if you‘ve already read P&P, which I‘m pretty sure you have 😂 I find my mind coasting along with the familiar prose and then a zombie bit jumps out at me. It‘s quite jarring and funny! 2y

How about a #BuddyRead and/or a watch party for P&P & Zombies?

Here‘s my tentative plan, but I‘m open to suggestions:

The book has 61 chapters: for those who want to buddy read, read at your own pace from October 1-22.

I would be willing to host 1 or 2 watch parties the weekend of 10/23-10/26. Based on sign-ups so far, I‘m thinking Friday 10/23 7 pm my time (US Central) and Saturday 10/24 at 7 pm Central may work.

Thoughts?

Let‘s talk retellings! These are but a few—what are yours?

I‘m definitely reading P&P & Zombies (works well for October) and Bridget Jones, and I hope to watch the movies, too.

I‘ve read and loved Pride and Eligible.❤️

Pride & Premeditation and Unmarriageable are on my list.

Heart Stone is a retelling WITH DRAGONS!

On Stranger Prides: Darcy is a freaking pirate and apparently there is smut? I can‘t make this stuff up, folks.😂

This book to me was amazing from start to finish. It turn the Bennet sisters into a force to be reckoned with instead of women who needed to be recued. Seth Grahame-Smith stay true to the book for the most part with some minor changes to include the zombies.

Victories were celebrated, defeats lamented, defeats lamented. And the sisters Bennet-servants of His Majesty, protectors of Hertfordshire, beholders of the secrets of Shaolin, and brides of death-were now three of them, brides of man, their swords quieted by that only force more powerful than any warriors.
The End

If there are zombies about don't go for a stroll in the park. (Thank you all for bearing with me throughout this novel. It is almost over. But so good.) 😂

I wonder what it is like having a friend that is 3/4 dead?

Elizabeth in Pride and Prejudice is very eloquent, but I find her greatly entertaining is this version. So glad I picked it up.

Elizabeth shook her head over this letter, Jan was a fine killer, but a deficient judge of character. Indeed, her only weakness was her too-giving heart. Elizabeth was quite convinced that Caroline Bingley had no intention of telling her brother about the visit, or even Jane's being in town. Once again, her thoughts turned tot he satisfaction of seeing Miss Bingley's last rubies pour from her neck down the front of her bodice.

#3books #ihated or at least REALLY disliked....

- Adding the Zombies to a Pride & Prejudice may have been funny in theory, but in practice just seemed like a pointless gimmick that added nothing...
- All the repetitive ‘Inner Goddess‘ nonsense in 50 shades was just ridiculous!
- #unpopularopinion time... I found Bill Bryson to be smug, really bigoted and thinks he‘s a lot funnier than he is. Put me off reading anything else by him.

SamAnne LOL. I'm not a zombie fan. And I cannot endure a Bill Bryson book either. I think he has a racket going. 2y
Hooked_on_books I won‘t go anywhere near 50 shades. Never wanted to. Historically, I‘ve liked Bryson, but I‘ve gone off him a bit lately. His Little Dribbling book had the characteristics you described and disappointed me. I‘m not sure I‘ll read him again. 2y

MidnightBookGirl I don't hate Catcher in the Rye, but I found it boring and I don't understand the love for it. 2y

It was followed in short order by a pair of weasel, then a skunk, then a fox and her pups. More creatures followed and in ever-increasing numbers; as if Noah himself beckoned, offering refuge form some unseen flood. By the time dear began to leap across their path, the other girls had their muskets trained on the the tree line, ready for the heard of zombies they suspected would appear at any moment.

The conversation with Lizzy and Wickham annoyed me in the original book, and know that he turned out really aggravates me now. Like I said before, I hope Seth gives him to the zombies. Yes I know that will require a major rewrite, but a girl can have something to look forward to. Thanks Litsy. You are so awesome.

Good news. If the zombies don't get Wickhan I am hoping they will let Darcy decapitate him. Adding to the list of people to be eaten by zombies is Mr. Collins. Even though I am hoping that Seth allow Lizzy to take a sword to his sanctimonious personage.

Vocab word -

Putrefaction: the fifth stage of death, following pallor mortis, algor mortis, rigor mortis, and livor mortis.

Mr. Darcy need to be more careful in this version of Pride and Prejudice since Elizabeth has more than her wit to spar with.

Is it wrong to have a list of people you are hoping get eat by zombies. I am hoping that Mr. Bingley sisters don't make it to the end of the book. Just saying.

This guy loved this revised edition of Pride Prejudice and Zombies so much that the first seven minutes of the audio is him talking about being given the privilege of reworking the classic.

“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in wants of more brains.“ This book is off to a rocking start. Whooooo!

DAB Good Morning Litsy.
