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)

    "A new fave!"

    I loved the balance of a classic with an modern twist. I would have honestly never listened to the original. I will come back to this one again. I listened to this quite some time ago but now hear there is a movie coming, we all know the book will be better :)

    "Funny stuff"

    Pretty much the original story with zombie mayhem. It's hilarious, but I didn't like some of the changes to some of the characters.

    "Delightfully cheesy spin on a classic novel"

    Narrator performed different character's voices distictly, and embodied the aire of each character and situation well. This book was a lot of fun to listen to while finally partaking in classic literature.

    Story
    "Great Twist"
    What made the experience of listening to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies the most enjoyable?

    I think the fact that Kathrine Kellgren is such a great narrator. She was so able to capture the essence of Austen's original book and tie it into modern day/futurist zombie times that it didn't even seem that ridiculous of an idea while listening to it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that the essence of the Pride and Prejudiced story was still there, if you love that story you'll love this book! It was the same story, which to me never gets old, plus a fun twist with how the same plot twist come to be.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I think any scene where these smart behaved young sisters suddenly pull out their spears and other weapons is always surprising and a riot to listen to.


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

    No, the love story that is portrayed in the original book is just as prominent here so that always gives me the mushy aww feeling, and that as nice. But no real tears or craziness different than the original book.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a a person who loves the classics, but also loves new things you'll love this book. But be careful, if you are like my English major cousin, you'll think it was "a shame to ruin such a great story". But I have listened to it more than once and love it.

    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.

    "Funny and creative reimagining"

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