Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

11 02 2011

This was another pick from the Book Circle and one I was looking forward to. I have always loved the Jane Austen classic and I love fantasy and SF as well (although not horror) so I thought this one might be a bit of fun. I have to admit, it took little getting into. Although the zombie side of the story fitted in surprisingly well, I still found it somewhat jarring at first. I found myself more absorbed as I got further into the book though (the attractions of the lovely Mr Darcy are irresistible). I especially enjoyed the various euphemisms that the characters used for the zombies and the necessity for the Bennett girls to maintain their modesty while they fought off undead hordes. Lizzy Bennett was very convincing as a deadly zombie destroyer. Some interesting twists on the minor storylines too. Not my favourite read but I ended up enjoying it.
