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, you know, being in a love hate relationship with a guy only add spices to the boiling feeling and you tend to come up with excuses all the time And adding that he is hot, kind of puts all of the above into the shadows.
Coming back to reality, after reading Pride and Prejudice, I ve seen so many movies and mini series adaptations, so many re interpretations that just show you the same thing, same action, same characters and same conclusion Nothing ever changed But one day, I came upon this book and firstly I thought it was a jok 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 it1 The ninjafication of Lizzy and the Bennet sisters.
It was completely idiotic The book really should have been called Pride and Prejudice and Ninjas with Zombies to allow dumb ass Ultraviolence Had Grahame Smith simply employed the available military training of the Regency period and allowed the Bennet girls to be warriors of that sort, I could have suspended my frustration at his failure to see the difference such a shift would have made on the period itself, and his failure to engage with these changes But by adding his bizarre, counter factual, Asian cultural influence without any explanation, without any sense, Grahame Smith made ign Que Come A Orgulho E Preconceito E Zombies, Uma Vers O Alargada Do Bem Amado Romance De Jane Austen Apresenta Cenas Completamente Novas, Com A Viol Ncia Capaz De Esmagar Ossos, Ao Ser Introduzida A Presen A Dos Zombies A Destemida Hero Na Elizabeth Bennet Est Decidida A Varrer A Amea A Dos Zombies, Mas Rapidamente Se V Afastada Desse Objectivo Com A Chegada Do Altivo E Arrogante Mr Darcy Segue Se Uma Encantadora Com Dia De Costume, Com In Meras ã Pride and Prejudice and Zombies è Download by ☆ Seth Grahame-Smith Lutas Civilizadas Entre Os Dois Apaixonados E Com Lutas Muito Mais Violentas, Em Campos De Batalha Ensopados De Sangue Munido De Rela Es Amorosas, Cora Es Despeda Ados, Lutas Com Espadas, Canibalismo E Milhares De Cad Veres Putrefactos, Orgulho E Preconceito E Zombies Transforma Uma Obra Prima Da Literatura Mundial Em Algo Que O Leitor N O Vai Querer Perder The movie was a billion times better than the bookHow 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 wrong Really wrong.
To start with, it wasn t funny It tried to be funny, but it wasn t It was retarded I don t even think I can describe howhow not funny it was There were ninjas Yesninjas In Pride and Prejudice Ninjas Maybe that sounds kind of cool, but somehow it wasn t Hey, look There s a ninja Was that funny No And that s how awesome it was in the book, too.
I will say, Charlotte Lucas becoming infected with the zombie disease was sort of funny at times If she hadn t been killed off it might have helped the story However, Mr Collins beheaded her an ☆ Pride and Prejudice and Zombies ☆ Find all of my reviews at 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 PP is one of my all time faves that I own as a leather bound collection, a 7.
00 BN cheapy collection, a hardback and one I actually allow myself to read Adding in the Zs to this timeless classic just made everything old brand new again for me.
The original was written over two hundred years ago and there are one and three quarter MILLION ratings on Goodreads for it, so obviously I probably don t need to go into detail when it comes to the synopsis To briefly sum it up here s a snippet from the publisher s blurb PP is about the splendidly civilized sparring between the pro 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 film, is poor writing Someone may have a great concept, but setting that down on paper is too difficult, or that someone can create some good scenes or segments, but stringing them together results in a too thin or too silly creation Graham Smith has deftly solved this problem by using as his foundation one of English languages greatest novels Fans of Austin will be pleased to find the Bennets and Mr Darcy in all their early nineteenth century pro Umoh my goshwhat 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 that I ve read it Well, actually, I still think it s pretty darn good idea It was weird reading it though, because the zombie mayhem fit so well into the story that I kept catching myself stopping after every line trying to remember how the original version went The zombies fit in so well as a matter of fact that I think it s perhaps just possible that the zombies were always intended to be in it Austen just chickened out and let her editors take them out And as a not Darcy fan, I found him much improved by possessing a sword and musketI actually sorta kinda maybe found myself liking the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, 1 , Seth Grahame Smith, Jane AustenIt is a mashup combining Jane Austen s classic novel Pride and Prejudice 1813 with elements of modern zombie fiction, crediting Austen as co author It was first published in April 2009 by Quirk books and in October 2009 a Deluxe Edition was released, containing full color images and additional zombie scenes The novel was adapted into a 2016 film starring Lily James and Sam Riley 2016 1394 9786009684710 1 9786009684703 21
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 it over the weekend.
That being said, it s rather unnecessary for anyone to read this novel in its entirety, even if it does sound amusing The best plan is to read the first two or three chapters, and then call it a day You ll get the point and you won t be missing much Actually, you ll get everything you need, because Chapter 3 will include a ball and a zombie battle It really is a clever idea maintaining the actual text of Pri 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 this out This book was a lot of fun Every page had at least one quote that had me grinning Seeing every disagreement that would have been handled as a polite argument in the original novel turn into a battle between adversaries trained by Shaolin monks was awesome I am impressed with the author, Seth Grahame Smith I have read one of his other books, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, and I enjoyed it as well I think he does a great job of combining genres with the results feeling creative, unique, and often hilarious and not feeling contrived or stup
