What the community says about Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
- "This isn't necessarily a romance novel as it is a rehashing of a classic one with the word zombie thrown in everywhere, including the title, that doesn't make any sense. If the novel itself was funny, this would be a funny and good book. But it's like someone just inserted zombies and altered the material to make it ludicrous. Guess you have to be a fan"
- "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a rather strange book inspired by Pride and Prejudice. If you are into zombies then this is a great twist on the Pride and Prejudice story. However, I wouldn't say that it should be included in the list of best books inspired by Pride and Prejudice. Using zombies goes too far for me."
- "This book was a thrilling ride all the way through. It had so much variety in it, which made it almost impossible for me to be bored with it. The action was over the top, but it kept me entertained throughout. I managed to read it in only a couple of days and I do not regret it. The genre crossing made the book feel like something completely new, which is much appreciated in this time of cliches. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys crossovers."
- "This book is not great. I was expecting a lot more and there is potential for so much better than what we get with this book. It was mostly the story of Pride and Prejudice with a few additions about zombies here and there, like the author half-heartedly threw them in. I was expecting something a bit more clever overall, and if I had known what this was I probably would not have purchased the book. I thought it was going to be a bit more integrated and clever, but it wasn't. Womp Womp."
- "I was very disappointed in reading this (and I only read it because of the upcoming release of the movie adaptation) to find that about 90% of this is actually Jane Austen's canon. There is nothing new as far as the basic plot but Seth Grahame-Smith adds a word, a sentence, a phrase or as much as a paragraph here or there in order to insert something or other about Zombies or what he takes for comedy. And at times these additions are totally outré, out of place and then ignored by the characters. For example: at about 10% we have the scene at Netherfield in which Elizabeth has come down to the drawing room after being with Jane, who has a terrible cold, and Caroline states to Darcy, “You write uncommonly fast.” Darcy: “And you prattle uncommonly much.” More canon from C. and Darcy then says, “And how odious indeed that I should so often suffer to write them in your company.”…etc., etc., etc. These snide little remarks from Darcy are inserted and there is no reaction...from Caroline or from Elizabeth? Then another example of a sentence dropped into place with its adding nothing to the goings-on: at 37% - “Apparently overcome with excitement, Charlotte dropped to the ground and began stuffing handfuls of crisp autumn leaves in her mouth.” No reaction from those around her?
