Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies By: Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith
Fiction: classic, fantasy 317
Book Count: 43

First, I haven't studied Jane Austen's work since high school so I don't remember exactly how much this story is changed from the original. However, given all of the zombies, ninjas and fighting, it still reads like the book. (Only way more fun.) The main story is the same as the original. The main difference is that England has been plagued by zombies. The Bennet sisters are trained warriors that have sworn an oath to defend England from the zombies. They have trained in China and Elizabeth is one of the best warriors in the area. And there is of course the love/hate thing with Mr. Darcy, Jane and Mr. Bingley, Mr. Wickham and the rest of them. And at the end there is even a discussion guide like one would normally find in a classic novel.
