Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
By: Seth Grahame-Smith
ISBN: 978-1594743344
Amazon.co.uk

This was a most extraordinary book I read. While it was amusing, it was annoying as well. Makes for a good light reading.

The basic structure, and literary style follows the original Pride and Prejudice, except that now it’s got Zombies added into the equation. The Bennett Sisters got turned into some kind of sailor moon or power rangers style special physical abilities.

I’m trying not to give too much away from this book, but some parts that differ abit are the outcomes of Charlotte, Mr. Collins, and Wickham.

I don’t think I could say too much about this book at this point (else this will be a spoiler-esque synopsis) but what I could say is that this will make good light reading for those familiar with the original work. At least, this has gotten me to itch to read the original book!

Am willing to lend to whoever wants to borrow within Macau.

  1. unfortunately, i haven’t laid any fingers of mine on this book yet. i’m saving money for it. as it’s obvious that no bookstores in Vietnam sell it, i have to order it on amazon.com and wait for my friend’s aunt – who’s gonna have a trip to US in this Oct – to bring it back Vietnam for me (along with The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún). i’m so eager to read them both.

    i did read the plot summary of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies on Wikipedia and i can imagine how the story goes. i personally think it’s a good story and as long as its story is good i like it, no matter how weird it might be to other people.

    i do love the original one. in fact, it’s one of my most most most favorite since my pride is noticeably high just like Fitzwilliam Darcy. if you haven’t read it, you should definitely give it a try.

    *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.* <~~~ my favorite quotes from the book.

    btw, it's so great to know you. have a nice day in Macau! (:
