Publisher's Summary

"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.

This Heirloom Edition of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies includes a new preface by the author, an afterword by Dr. Allen Grove, professor of English literature at Alfred University, and new scenes of gratuitous zombie mayhem.

What the Critics Say

"[Seth Grahame-Smith] has taken the merry world established by a 19th-century literary lady, added a scourge of reanimated corpses, and created...well, a pop cultural phenomenon, certainly, and one that has stirred up a lot of excitement. But the greater achievement of the book may lie in the satisfying desire it awakens to read the remix and the original side by side." (Entertainment Weekly)

    Story
    "Avoided this at first, but glad it wasn't for long"
    What made the experience of listening to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies the most enjoyable?

    I've read all of Austen's books, and at first was really hesitant toward the Zombies version. After the recommendation from a trusted good friend, I gave it a listen and enjoyed the comparisons between the two story lines, the easy listening voice over, and how aspects of different characters were brought out through the new story line.


    What about Katherine Kellgren’s performance did you like?

    AMAZING. I would probably buy other books she does just because she's so good.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Well you know...all the Darcy moments obviously :)

    "Impressed but Disapointed"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The first 4 hours were Jane Austen style which attracts more women but then the middle of the book transforms into adolescent boy humor.


    What was most disappointing about Seth Grahame-Smith and Jane Austen ’s story?

    I knew what I was getting into and was pleasantly surprised with the word choices and description Seth added. But then the story went from Jane Austen to a whole new story of eating hearts and bathroom humor which made me turn it off immediately.

    Loved it! A fun, silly at times, retelling of a classic story. A must read for zombie fans.

    "Inconclusive ending!"

    I' labored to get through this entire novel. The moment it started getting interesting with the action it would quickly and abruptly subside. Narrator was excellent, but story lacks believability, consistency and a finale

    "Great story and great reader"

    I chooses to here this book because I loved Pride and Prejudice and after herring a little about the book I decided to give it a try even though I don't like zombies what so ever and avoid them when ever I can but this book was really great. I'm glad it didn't have to much description of the zombies and the parts it did describe I just ignored. I'm very impressed on how they incorporated the zombies in the book with out changing the story to much and was still a really good book. I also love the way the reader read this book and will definitely be listening to this book more than once. 😆😊

    Well done. Ironically it brought new life to this beloved story. Would like to see a movie or even PBS take it on.
