Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Review
"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 lovers-and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield. Can Elizabeth vanquish the spawn of Satan? And overcome the social prejudice of the class-conscious landed gentry? Complete with romance, heartbreak, sword fights, 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.
This book was good. I am glad that I did decide to pick it up, because of the fact that I don't really like classics. I find I get really annoyed from the story line and lack of action.
I hate to admit, I was really bored and probably missed a few sections because I was just searching for the next set of violence. Unfortunatly that didn't happen as often as I would have liked.
The characters were also a tad dull. They had no real personalities and seemed really unreal, and unrealatable.
3 out of 5 stars
