Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith (Book Review)

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, #1)

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Bookshelves: mashup, spoof, satire, cult-classic, classic, horror

Note to men: Don’t be a Mr. Collins. Be a Mr. Darcy.

I was inspired to pick this up after I surprised myself by enjoying World War Z.

It is a riot.

You might get more of the jokes if you’ve already read the original P&P, but it’s probably not necessary. Perhaps 90% of this book is Austen’s original work (and she is given top billing as co-author), with the zombie bits worked in. It’s kinda brilliant, really. The warrior woman aspect adds a whole new kick. If you haven’t read the original this is a fun alternative, and you still get to meet the romantic hero who actually respects a woman’s autonomy by knowing how to take no for an answer. ~swoon~

Please note that I will not be watching the movie because THERE IS NO MR. DARCY EXCEPT COLIN FIRTH, but I can understand why you might want to. The visual is awesome.


I think I’m zombie’d out, though.

Let’s be friends on Goodreads!

I like trees, dreaming, magic, books, paper, floating, dreaming, rhinos, rocks, stargazing, wine, dragonflies, trains, and silence to hear the world breathe.
