Pride and Prejudice and Zombies book reviewI t is a truth universally acknowledged that a brand as successful and limited as the Jane Austen industry must be in want of diversification. It is a further truth that anyone writing about Austen must begin with a variant of that sentence. Even the relentless adaptations machine, which seems to produce remakes of her best-known novels while the previous remake is still in post-production, finds itself necessarily constrained by the fact that Austen wrote only six complete books, of which one — Pride and Prejudice — is by far the best known. While the public appetite for Austen remains unsated, she herself remains stubbornly unable to produce any more in the series. For an enterprising publisher, therefore, there was really only one solution: give Austen's characters a new lease of life by splicing them with another, equally popular genre. First published in the spring, the book immediately became a New York Times bestseller, with more than , copies sold worldwide to date, and film rights bought up by Hollywood. The original idea was the brainchild of Jason Rekulak, an editor at Quirk Books, a tiny independent publishing house based in Philadelphia.

Jane Austen's classic Regency tale of love and honour is brought back and given a peculiar and interesting twist as Miss Elizabeth Bennett and her trusted friends along with Mr. Darcy find out from village gossip that the whole of England has become plagued by the living dead uprooting from the ground causing havoc and other zombies to appear from place to place, known as unmentionables or dreadfuls. Miss Bennett is known as the Defender of Longbourne, the heroine of Hertfordshire, and has killed plenty of these evil things to be awarded that title. Even when our heroes are dealing with the likes of the undead, they never leave their manners or morals - self-respect is still certainly on the agenda even when a flesh-eating zombie comes their way and spoils their fun, social ettiquette and tea parties. Darcy, however polite and gentlemanly, is also not one to be toyed with either as he is skilled with both sword and gun, both of which he uses to great effect.
That is pretty much the exact right description for this book. Retrieved March 10, Ye. One of the elements of good Zombie tales is that there is always a sense of danger!
