Pride and Prejudice and Zombies


From Barnes and Noble: Synopsis


"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 as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead. Can she 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.

Have you ever received or purchased a book that you absolutely could not finish?? That does not happen to me a lot but it sure did with this book..Now I do not want to upset any Jane Austin fans out there but Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was terrible. As I could not finish it I never did figure out why there was this plague in England for "five and fifty years" that accounted for the "unmentionables".I not only could not finish it but for the price of postage someone can take this book off my hands...

I knew there was a reason why I kept looking at it at the bookstores and putting it back down... I know that I will not be purchasing Sense and Sensibilities and Sea Monsters.....
