Authors: Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith
First said, I hate zombies. Torch me, send me into a dark wood with trolls, set me up to watch “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince” – but don’t give me ZOMBIES.
That said, I love good, creative plots and falling into the characters in the novels I read. Since “Pride and Prejudice” is one of my favorite classics, I myself found P&P with Zombies just a little silly and trying hard to be “camp.” Mr. Bennett, Mrs. Bennett, the forever matchmaker, their five daughters, Mr. Bingely and Mr. Darcey were as surprised as I was to find themselves smack dab in the middle of a novel enhanced not by Dolby Surround Sound but zombies – on every single page. Mr. Grahame-Smith’s monstrous insertions lend a grandeur to the original book, but that said – did I say that I hate ZOMBIES? There remains a large amount of brain eating, cannibalistic gore and zombie crunching that sways around the original story, and therefore, I am handing this review over to those who have a better imagination than I have. (Broad Z always says my reviews are too long…).
An absolutely great and creative book – for zombie lovers! You know who you are!
