Twisted fun :) ( )

Adult fiction. I don't want to say that this needs more zombies, but maybe it could be a bit less "pride and prejudice"? It did have its moments of humor but generally prodded on as regency novels do. I do think it would make a splendid theme for a costume party, though. ( )

This was fun. Not deep, not great literature. Just fluffy entertainment. ( )

This was actually a lot of fun to read. This is the type of book one can't take seriously and should just sit back and enjoy. I'm not a huge romance or zombie fan but this book was okay. I actually really liked the ending and it did feel a lot like Pride and Prejudice with extra ninjas and zombies. ( )

P&P&Z has just too much Austen and not enough zombies. I found myself skimming, skipping larger and larger chunks of text to get to the zombie sequences, desperate to escape the claustrophobic drawing-room chatter of Austen's characters with a little beheading, disemboweling and derring-do.

Dedication
First words
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.
Quotations
The mere stateliness of money or rank she could witness without trepidation, but the presence of a woman who had slain ninety dreadfuls with nothing more than a rain-soaked envelope was an intimidating prospect indeed.
‘What can be da meaning of dis?’ howled Charlotte, as soon as he was gone. ‘Mah dear Ewiza, he muss be love you, aw he never wuh have called in dis famiwiar way.’

Book description
(From the back of the book) "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 edtion 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. Can Elizabeth 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.
