From the Review Pile (6)

This is a new meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page, every Thursday. This is to showcase books that you’ve received for review (or just books that you have and really want to read/review) but haven’t yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.

This week, I’m going to highlight Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith.

Now, this book has been out since 2009, but I got it not too long ago, and have been waiting for a chance to read it. I hope it’s as good as I think it will be! Have you read it?

Released May 1st 2009

Description from Goodreads:

“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. 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

    • There are a few different ones like this, I can’t remember the name but there is one with sea monsters 🙂 I’m not sure how many books there are of this kind though.

  1. I won one of these books (maybe the sequel?) in a Goodreads giveaway, but I never got around to reading it, so I finally gave it away. Now I kind of wish I’d kept it. 😦

    Here’s my Awhile on the Pile post. Happy Thursday! 😀
