Format: Paperback
I was excited about this book as soon as I heard the title and I couldn't wait to read it. Really, how can anything with zombies AND ninjas in it be bad?
I knew as soon as I read the first line (a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains) that I was in for a treat. I was not dissappointed. This book had me laughing so hard I decided it wouldn't be safe to read at work.
I expect most people that are going to read this have already read the original Pride and Prejudice (which I love and have read many times). Part of the appeal of this book is seeing familiar lines blanketed by zombie - err "unmentionable" - action.
The only thing I wasn't overly fond of were the illustrations. I'm not sure if it was the style or just that none of the characters looked quite right, but I usually skipped right past them. Thankfully there were not very many so it wasn't the distraction it could have been.
It's hard to say much more without giving away the very lines that make this book such a deliciously funny read, so I will only say, if you loved the original and have a slightly twisted sense of humour, you will absolutely enjoy this book.

Here's the thing. This book is not for everyone. I love Jane Austen, I've studied the Regency period, I am a Jane afficionado. But I also like kung fu movies. And I have a fondness for the classic horror film. So this book was pretty much made for me and folks like me.

It is also much, um, randier, than I was expecting. Some comments are definitely much coarser than most Austen readers enjoy.

Format: Paperback
I wanted to love this book. Really, I did. I wanted to be howling with laughter, and unable to put it down. But I wasn't, and frequently did put it down. Instead, I found something that was mildly funny most of the time, and chuckle-worthy a couple of times, and never laugh-out-loud hilarious.

The premise is the most exciting thing about this book, but it's a premise that isn't sustained throughout. There are moments of glorious spoof, but most times the zombie action just fades into the background of the original story of Pride and Prejudice. Some of the inclusions of zombie-ness seem a bit forced, and it becomes sadly repetitive with more and more reading.

Probably would have been hilarious and awesome as a short story, or a one chapter spoof, but to have 300 pages of it becomes tedious, especially if the laughter pay-off isn't that big.

Format: Paperback
This is a very funny and silly read. Some Austen purists have snubbed it, but the author was by no means not respecting the original work or the author. This book really is just a bit of irreverent fun, mashing up the classic text with zombies and ninjas.

I love Austen's original book, which is quite funny and witty, and as a nerd, the idea of combining zombies and ninjas to the story seemed a delightful parody.

Don't scream sacrilege: this book doesn't take itself seriously at all.

For Austen fans who are able to laugh at themselves, and for zombie fans everywhere.

If I may add: the other books that were added to the series ("Dawn of the dreadful" and "Dreadfully ever after") do not have the same appeal, as they do not even make an effort to sound remotely Austen-ish, which deeply disappointed me, as the idea could have had potential. They are simply zombie stories taking place in the Regency, with some Austen characters thrown in. The original is the best! Don't bother with the so-called sequels.

Bought this book for my father, he loved it. He was really going through a zombie phase at the time.

This is a very interesting twist on the classic and I enjoyed it quite a bit!
It gave me quite a few giggles and I love the fact that the heroine is not as helpless as one expects!

I definitely recommend this if you liked the original!

AKA, "Jane Austin for Men."
It's exactly what it sounds like: the classic Victorian drama carefully edited to add zombie attacks, displays of martial prowess, and some rather naughty jokes (so naughty). If you want to read a period Victorian novel but you're terrified of being caught in the story of privileged aristocrats whining about how unfair life is, then this is a book. Possibly a book for you.

I like Pride and Prejudice. I like zombies. So it stands to reason that I should like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. But I don't. I think it's because I'm a purist and I don't like people messing with things I like. Especially Pride and Prejudice. I only lasted 5 minutes in the newest movie (the one with Keira Knightley) because I loved the old one and now everything was wrong!

Beyond my own personal bias, I still don't think it was done as well as it could be. It messed up the story enough to annoy people like me, but I don't think there was enough zombie mayhem to attract the action movie/book crowd. There was a lot of talking about zombies, but much less slaying of zombies.

I also need to mention that Elizabeth Bennet was a complete witch in this book. She was constantly murdering people or at least fantasizing about it (yes, ninjas are people too). I found her completely unlikeable and she definitely didn't deserve someone as awesome as Mr. Darcy (who was only slightly less awesome in this book).

Other, more minor, complains:
1. Why was this book so obsessed with kung fu? I personally don't think butterfly kicks are the best way to dispatch a zombie. And you have to travel to China or Japan to learn to use a bladed weapon?
2. Since when can muskets fire multiple balls like a semi-automatic? (I'm talking about the scene where Elizabeth kills a pile of zombies with her musket while jumping off her carriage).
3. Why couldn't Lydia (or at least Mrs. Bennet) be eaten by a zombie? Why?
