Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, a Review

Post by smiley_cow »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a book that's been getting a lot of press lately, and since I'd been meaning to reread Pride and Prejudice for a while anyways, I figured, why not with zombies?

Actually I was impressed with how well the author managed to work in the zombies. I think I expected scenes from the books being randomly spliced with zombie scenes but not much more than that, but the author really fleshed the world out, up to and including the inclusion of a very well thought out warrior culture and more than a few small liberties with some of the characters.

My main criticism would be that there was the occasional zombie scene that was followed by one of the original scenes where you could tell it was spliced had you not already known. Mostly the following paragraph after the zombie scene didn't acknowledge what had just happened, something that I think probably could have been fixed easily enough by editing the first sentence of the paragraph a bit. You could probably find other faults if you looked, but I would argue this book was written to be fun, and not as a serious piece of literature, and in that task, I would say it succeeded.

So I was just wondering, has anyone else read this book? What were your thoughts?

No, but anything with zombies must be at least mildly entertaining, so I'll see if it shows up at my library. Thanks for the tip!

It's hilarious that they've even attempted such a work.
It's like how people got used to Rick Rolls.

Yeah, but I'd prefer to grope actual breasts, rather than soon to be breasts.

Not that I know what I'm talking about.

He witnessed a knife fight as a child that turned him gay.

No, it was definately the doll. Knives are a phallus, which is why men feel drawn to them. This event would have made a woman lesbian, but not a dude gay. Unless the murder and power appealed to him, which is not what you seem to be implying.

This is the best thing to replace rick rolling, while still keeping with the soul of rick rolling.
