I had heard of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies before. To be honest, I didn’t really pay that much attention. A rewrite of the Pride and Prejudice with Zombies? I filed in my brain the same place as the ghost of Elvis and Big Foot. Then I read the reviews.
Entertainment Weekly gave it an A-. It made it to the top ten of the New York Times bestseller list. The A.V. club states, “Grahame-Smith’s amendments add some interest, pathos, and essential motivation to Austen’s subplots.”
This one could be worth a read. In the meantime, if you want Zombie-free Jane Austen:
“Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.” ~ Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
