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 hear.

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)

    "surprised!"
    Any additional comments?

    I wasn't expecting to like this book. Twisting a great book? You just don't do that!

    I was very surprised, and happy with this book. It was funny and kept me engaged. The author's preface was an added bonus to help understand the thinking behind this adaptation of a great work.

    Everything you expect from Pride and Prejudice with added fun. All the things you wanted to have happened to every character you hated or loved previously, happened in one way or another.

    Loved it! It was great fun listening to this book. Also, found a new narrator I like.

    "Pride and Prejudice meets zombies"

    This is actually a fun read for someone who loves the original Pride and Prejudice this was fun to compare to the original what they keep in and what they took out. Just have fun and don't think of it as ruining a classic but a fun spin on one.

    "Wonderful. I want to listen to it again already."

    I have loved the original Pride and Prejudice since I first read it in high school. I must say, though I love the original, I am a fan of this sequence of events. This reading is perfect, the narrator has the perfect balance to manage both the high-society and zombie battle aspects of the story without sounding awkward.

    "Just wonderful"

    What a delightful rework of Ms. Austen's novel. I was so happy to read a book that combines period fiction and the supernatural. The original work itself was a great read, this addition only added to my enjoyment.

    "Amusing adaptation of a loved classic"

    I was extremely skeptical of this book when it originally came out; after all, I truly enjoy the original worm and find the zombie phenomenon overdone. Still, I decided to give it a try, and am glad that I did. The voice acting is excellent, the additions to the original text are fun. I love that the zombies are referred to as "unmentionables" in Society. The debates between the Chinese and Japanese fighting styles push several scenes that could have potentially been far to close to the original to feel relevant to an England under attack by the walking dead. And through it all is Mrs. Bennet, still with her head filled with trying to get her daughters married off and succumbing to her "nerves." A good read, even for lovers of the original text.

    "Not bad"

    The narrator really helped bring out the story, loved her. I loved the original story but also love Sci-fi so was intrigued. I wasn't entirely disappointed, fun twist to a classic.
