Jane Austen and Seth Grahme-Smith
March 2011 – Pride & Prejudice & Zombies - Jane Austen & Seth Grahme-Smith
 
Don't Knock It Till You Tried It

 

(Click Book to purchase from Amazon.com)


Seth Grahame-Smith has adapted Jane Austen's masterpiece with style and finesse into a 19th century zom-rom-com, recklessly bringing the world of zombies into the polite society of Hertfordshire where the Bennet family resides.

Elizabeth and her sisters are shamelessly transformed into fighting warriors in long skirts while the indomitable Lady Catherine keeps a ready cache of Ninjas at her beck and call. If you think that's hilarious, get ready for Elizabeth's sparring session with the Ninjas and the memorable fight with the aging Lady Catherine herself. The old bag's still as able and agile as her younger counterpart while the poor Ninjas realised a little too late that the Chinese art of fighting is far superior to that of the Japanese.

The book is altogether entertaining with a number of humorous events weaved in while Jane Austen's main plot line moves the story along smoothly. However, if there is one criticism to be made, the plot could do with more zombies and zombie related storylines. Still a good read
and highly recommended.
