"It's a universally recognized truth that a brain-possessing zombie needs to be in need of more brains."
So begins Pride and Prejudice and Zombie... s, an expanded edition of Jane Austen's beloved novel featuring all-new bone-crunching zombie mayhem scenes. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon Meryton's quiet English village—and the dead are coming to life again! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie threat but the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr Darcy soon distracts her. What follows is a delightful manner-comedy with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers—and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield. Can Elizabeth overcome Satan's Spawn? And getting over the class-conscious landed gentry's social prejudices? Complete with romance, heartbreak, swordfights, cannibalism, and thousands of rotting bodies, Pride and Prejudice and Zombiestransforms a masterpiece of world literature into something you would really like to read about.
