Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and its prequel, Dawn of the Dreadfuls, were both New York Times best sellers, with a combined 1.3 million copies in print. Now the PPZ trilogy comes to a thrilling conclusion with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dreadfully Ever After.
The story opens with our newly married protagonists, Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy, defending their village from an army of flesh-eating unmentionables. But the honeymoon has barely begun when poor Mr. Darcy is nipped by a rampaging dreadful. Elizabeth knows the proper course of action is to promptly behead her husband (and then burn the corpse, just to be safe). But when she learns of a miracle antidote under development in London, she realizes there may be one last chance to save her true love - and for everyone to live happily ever after.

I enjoyed the entire story.
I think that she did a great job with all the characters.
The narration was GREAT! I couldn't stop listening. I don't know that I would have actually read it with the same perspective. The different characters came alive. Ending was a little abrupt and detracted from the overall experience.
I really enjoyed the first book, Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, and was worried that this third book couldn't live up to its humor & originality. I was pleasantly proved wrong, and actually enjoyed this book as much as I did the original. Having read the other two novels in this series (or rather, listened to them), the characters are fully formed in my mind, and this continuation of their struggles against the dreadfuls was very well done.
Katherine Kellgren did an excellent narration - her voices for the individual characters were "spot-on" and never overdone, and I felt she really came into her element in this story. I was very impressed with her timing and her tone - she conveyed the obvious humor perfectly. At one point in the story, a character pops into the scene by talking first - and the reader knows exactly which character it is by Ms. Kellgren's performance. I honestly enjoyed the narration as much as the book itself.
I highly recommend this book, especially if you enjoyed the first one!
I'm a teacher in Florida who loves to listen to books whenever possible! I enjoy listening to classics in audiobook format. Happy reading!
It isn't my favorite audiobook, but it was definitely enjoyable.
I liked that characters from the previous PPZ books (particularly Kitty and Mary) who didn't have a whole lot of development got to play a bigger role in this book. It fleshed out the story quite a bit more. Also, there wasn't a lot of Lydia, which I think everyone can agree is a good thing.
No, I haven't listened to any of her other performances.
It was quite long, so no, but I didn't get bored with it.
This wasn't as good as the original PPZ, but I did like it better than Dawn of the Dreadfuls.
I was a little skeptical about getting this book, but it was so worth it. The story was delightfully hilarious and engaging. The performance was top notch, I would give it six stars if I could. Highly recommended!

Yes. It was amazingly fun and I enjoyed it very much.
I love the narrator, Lizzie Bennett and zombies.
Yes. I believe she has read other regency novels I have listened to. She's amazing.
This was a great 3rd book in the series. Jane would be proud as I am sure she has a sense of humor.
Overall performance was good, but portrayal and Scottish accent for Angus M. was absolutely awful. At times I almost wanted to turn it off, but gritted my teeth until she was on to another character.
To continue the story of PPZ. Maybe there is a cure for the illness and England will be freed of Zombies :)
Very entertaining and very well read. It shows the characters as unconventional people for the era in which they lived in, a bit like Austen's Elizabeth in the original book.
The last one when Darcy and Elizabeth were fighting off the zombies side-by-side.
I would, but wanted to stretch it a bit since this was the last of the series and I truly enjoyed these three books. A few years ago when PPZ came out, I was not interested at all...could not imaging how it would look proper for 19th century young ladies to be warriors. I was wrong...
These books are meant to be funny and entertaining, so don't take offense if you are a Jane Austen's fan.
"pride and prejudice with zoombies"
really good ending especially for CatherinDe-Burgh! and her sniffling daughter. Mr and Mrs Darcy as always have the happiest of endings despite Elizabeths mother.
"Finally managed to complete the trilogy!"
Having first read Pride, Prejudice & Zombies some years ago after it was recommended by my uni lecturer, I thoroughly enjoyed reading the other two novels in the series - this one was by far my favourite
The continued development of the original Austen characters (albeit in this parallel, zombie infested universe) and the way the writer managed to stay in keeping with the feel of an Austen novel while simultaneously turning everything on its head!
Her accents were somewhat hammed up (and her Scottish accent was apalling) - but if you could overcome this & focus on the content rather than the narrator then the book was still enjoyable
Not moved, but I enjoyed the developmen of Kitty Bennet's character and her blossoming relationship with Nesu
If you are an Austen purist, avoid these novels - if however, you enjoy seeing how classics can be adapted and changed, this is a good series to start with.
"A bit of a slog"
This audiobook is nicely narrated but I found the story a bit of a slog about half way through.
I enjoyed this more than the second book in the series, but I think maybe the zombie thing is a little dull for me now. Perhaps I'm just not that into zombie stories.
"Pride and prejudice and Zombies"
I really did not expect to like this book so much but I was so very wrong. It was brilliant, loved every minute. So proper but so gory as well. Best book I have listened to for a while. Fantastic.
"Pride and Prejudice Dreadful Saga"
These three books are simply fantastic. At the beginning I was a little put off by the 'copy and paste' style of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, but I enjoyed the action parts nonetheless. When I read the second book, Dawn of the Dreadfuls, I was totally hooked. Lots and lots of action and a good insight in young Elisabeth's life. The last book, Dreadfully ever after, is pure magic. Lots more character studies of the girls, and quite a creative view of the 'Z' catastrophe in England. Fun, but if you're looking for depth, go elsewhere. These books make you laugh!
