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)

    "fun"

    I love the original pride and prejudice and I am not a big zombie fan, but this book was complete fun! I laughed a lot and enjoyed the slight twists to the story.

    "Wonderful Narrator!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to be better than the print version?

    Katherine Kellgren is probably the best I've heard on audible so far. She does such a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life. she adds to the dry humor of this book. I especially love her version of "zombie Charlotte"!


    Which character – as performed by Katherine Kellgren – was your favorite?

    Either Zombie Charlotte or Lady Catherine

    "Most amusing!"

    I feel Austen's original story was treated well and kept surprisingly intact. The addition of zombies was most entertaining. A very enjoyable read for any Austen fan with a sense of humor.

    "Fantastic"
    Any additional comments?

    As a lover of Pride and Prejudice, I've been meaning to read this book for forever. I love the way that the author adapted it and made the zombie parts work seamlessly with the original prose. The narrator's performance was a bit grating at first because it felt as though she was mocking the material, but it grew on me. I would definitely recommend it.

    "A great reading of a classic with mm mm brainz"

    So good it kept my husband entertained as we drove long distance and he even came up with a few excuses to drive far enough to listen to a chapter or two! I just re-listened to it after finishing the prequel and sequel. The voice talent cannot be improved upon and we've searched for additional audios where she has contributed her talents to raise their ratings.

    "Turning Zombie Fans Into Jane Austin Fans"
    What made the experience of listening to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies the most enjoyable?

    As the introduction to the books says, what Pride and Prejudice really needed was more zombie violence.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I'm not particularly a fan of Jane Austin, but I am a particular fan of zombies. Somehow, the addition of zombies made Austin's wry wit shine in a way it never did for me before.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Be warned, this is a "laugh aloud on the subway" kind of book.

    "Rollicking Good Fun!"
    If you could sum up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies in three words, what would they be?

    What.A.Ride.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies?

    Kiss me deer/dear. Ms. Kellgren's performance truly makes all the moments memorable.


    What about Katherine Kellgren’s performance did you like?

    Katherine Kellgren made the book come alive. I loved her work so much, I have been picking out other books narrated by her.


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

    Elizabeth's confrontation to the two most aggravating men on the planet (at her time in history).


    Any additional comments?

    I thoroughly enjoyed the book. First heard it borrowed from my library via Overdrive, then had to get my own audio copy. A very good time!
