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.

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 enjoyed the entire story.
I think that she did a great job with all the characters.
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!
Enjoying audiobooks daily!
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.
I read the paperback of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and loved it. I decided that I would get the audiobook for the sequel and I was not disappointed. The best part about this audiobook is the narrator. The Victorian style of writing while talking about zombies is just amplified by having a proper British woman narrating. I found that I was laughing out loud numerous times while listening to this, and I am sure the people around me at work thought I was insane.
I loved the poshness she added to some of the characters and guffawed at the battle cries. Very well done.
I laughed hysterically numerous times.
Hahahahahahaha. Definitely made me laugh. An enjoyable read. I was quite impressed with how true to Austen's characters the author remained. Overall, pleasantly surprised!
I read the first book in the series and then continued to read the rest of the series. The first book 'Pride Prejudice & Zombies' was written as a stand alone book. Then came the 'Dawn of the Dreafuls' and 'Dreadfully Ever After'. The second book does not follow the first book completely. The third book follows the first one better and the second on completely. Here we see that 'Happily Ever After' doesn't always happen. We see the 'Darcy's' after a year of marriage. Here we see where something simple that we all would do and it turned their lives upside down. We see the 'sisters' work together to get a solution to a problem. We also learn the source of the 'plague'. We also get to see London burn to the ground. Parts of the story are guessable.
I would recommend this book as a continuation of the other two books in the series, but it would not stand on its own without some attachment already established with the Characters. In this case, it was a relationship that was well established and make the book a good read.
The book had very few high points after reaching a climax in the first pages. It almost reminded me of a book written completely for a conversion over to a movie. The scene descriptions were lacking in places. The fights were, if played out in real-time, only described to the length of a few seconds.
Katherine Kellgren is absolutely wonderful with her voicing of the characters. Without her I feel that the book would have been discontinued within the first few hours as a lack of forward momentum and predictability.
I listened to this book in sessions of 1.5 hours at a time. That was sufficient for the pace of the book.
I would recommend the consumption of the books in order to avoid a lack of interest in the characters in this shift book.
"evil wins when good men do nothing "quote
It had all the ingredients for a great story,action,romance,revenge,humor and horror
All of the above,shed a different light on this classic,but actually kept the charactors intact with there basic personalities
No ! But will look out for more
The killing of darcys aunt and her daughter,was well overdue.
You will not want to turn this book off!
I was pleasantly surprised and greatly enjoyed Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, but I have just started listening to this and I am not enjoying the storyline at all. The performance is wonderful as always, but I don't like where the story is heading. Will come back and revise this review after I have finished the book, but it may be a while since I don't find myself looking forward to it at all.
"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!
