More Zombies – Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Jane Austen 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
