Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
Deluxe Heirloom Edition
Hardcover – isbn 978-1594744518
by Jane Austen
and Seth Grahame-Smith
Publisher’s description: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies features the original text of Jane Austen’s beloved novel with new scenes of bone-crunching zombie action. 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.
Quirk Classics has published (and is in the process of publishing) some very clever and very entertaining mash ups – classic novels with a whole new twist. I just finished up the giveaway for their other Jane Austen – Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. I enjoyed that one, but this one is my favorite. I find the whole thing to be hilarious!
I know that many of you said that you have already read this book. If you’ve only read the original version, you’ll still want to check out the Deluxe Heirloom version. It isn’t just a pretty new cover on the same book – “The Deluxe Heirloom Edition features 30% MORE ZOMBIES! Seth has written pages and pages of all-new (and entirely gratuitous) ultra-violent zombie mayhem.” There are also new beautiful (and sometimes bloody) illustrations – color oil paintings. I’m laughing all over again looking at the illustrations.
Jane Austen + Zombies = Classic Novel that even my teenage son enjoys
HEADS UP – Keep your eyes open for an upcoming movie version of this entertaining novel. In the meantime, you’ll want to read the book a time or two.
DEAL ALERT - Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is available at a discount on Amazon.
PRIZE ALERT – FSB Media would like to give 1 of you the Deluxe Heirloom Edition of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies ($24.95)
