Read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, #1) Online Free - The New York Times Best Seller is now a major motion picture starring Lily James and Sam Riley, with Matt Smith, Charles Dance, and Lena Headey.
“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. Can Elizabeth 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.

I tried to resist. When everyone starting losing their shit over this book and pre-ordering it, I told myself that this was a literary bandwagon I wouldn't jump on. I read the reviews posted here, and saw that for the most part the consensus was that this book was grossly overrated. All the parts...

Since I am known by my friends as a Jane Austen person, SEVENTEEN different people sent me the link to this publishing announcement. Even though the book won't be published for another two months, a friend managed to procure an advanced copy (aka Word doc of the finished product), and so I read i...

If you are an Austen purist, you probably will not like this.
If you are a zombie purist, you will probably not like this.
If you can accept two seemingly unrelated worlds colliding in a creative, fun, and gruesome tale that both pokes fun of and pays homage to each genre – step right up and check...

Taking my cue from the emotional ratings of the goodreads star system (and I can only muster two stars for this book), I offer you a fully gut reaction to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
didn’t like it
1. The ninjafication of Lizzy and the Bennet sisters. It was completely idiotic. The book reall...

The movie was a billion times better than the book...
How often do you get to say that?
What a great idea! Take a universally loved classic and spice it up with some zombies! Honestly, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this thing. I just knew that it was going to be so much fun to read! I was wron...

When I saw the theme of the winter library challenge was “Classics Re-Mixed” I knew Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was going to be one of the five books I would read – or in this case re-read. I’m not a “re-reader” by nature, but P&am...

Um...oh my gosh...what to say? A quarter of me thinks I should be outraged, the other three-quarters is insanely giggling at the very idea, and then there's the very small uncounted minority of me that is throwing her fist in the air and screaming "Finally! This is the best idea ever!"
And now tha...

Pride and Prejudice has always been my favorite novel, beginning with the amazing period Jane Austin describes and ending with the wonderful characters we all love and come to consider icons. Mr.Darcy will always be an example of book boyfriend, even if he is stubborn, proud and judgmental. But,...

OMG!! I Can't Wait to see the Movie!!!
Time for a quick re-read!!!
Oh what a humorous re-telling of one of my most favorite love stories. Neatherfield is overrun with zombies, which are referred to as unmentionables, and Mr Darcy is a well respected zombie killer.
Elizabeth Bennet and her sisters a...

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is brilliant and hilarious.
This is a mash-up, meaning that Graham-Smith used the actual text of Jane Austin’s novel (she is listed as a co-author) and inserted his zombie story along the original storyline. The trouble with most horror stories, whether print or fi...
