Pride & Prejudice & Zombies: Discuss in Hogwarts Express (August 2009)


pure fun... I was impressed with the fact that a silly farce could still remind me how much I love the original. I enjoyed browsing the questions in the back and how they generate interest in Jane Austen. I thought this book was a good tool to generate interest in classic literature. Great for teenagers :)

This was an interesting story but it didn't quite soar to the heights I was hoping. For one thing it really needed to be more than one book. I think it crammed to much of the time line in. I kept waiting for the action to really cut loose but the story was always in a hurry. Having said that, I finished it and I never finish books I don't enjoy anymore (too many books to read). This might be one of those rare cases where I end up liking the movie better. It probably didn't help that I read this book after Railsea. Mieville is a magician with words.… (more)

Amusing version of the classic Austen story, where a plague has descended on England, reducing an unknown and unceasing number of people to zombies. The Bennett girls - having trained under the Shaolin monks in China - are defenders of the country against the zombies. Meanwhile, they still have time to flirt with the local militia, meet and fall in love with Mr Bingley and Mr Darcy, and otherwise follow the story of Pride and Prejudice (albeit with a little more fresh brains and vomiting than would normally be encountered)… (more)

This book was aggressively alright. The premise is perhaps it’s strongest point (Abraham Lincoln chopping up the undead with his trusty axe, what’s not to like?) but the novel seemed reluctant to fully lean into the absurdity of it. The book gets bonus points for weaving in genuine biographical details with vampirism but was at its most entertaining when filling in the gaps of Lincolns life with pure monster hunting fabrications.
