Product Description

Review

“It’s a romp of a book.”—McClatchy Newspapers

 “Mixing taught horror-movie action with neo-Austen meditation on identity, society, and romance, this happy sacrilege is sure to please fans of Grahame-Smith's original mash-up.”—Publishers Weekly

“This is a must-read for the growing legion of alternate-Austen fans.”—Booklist

“Zombie-centric plot required to measure up to standards of both Austen and horror fans—no easy task. Now a NYT Best Seller, the book seems to have struck a chord with both.”—Techland

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Karoline TOP 500 REVIEWER on March 3 2010
Format: Paperback
I can tell you, that I LOVED this book as much as P & P & Z. It had the wonderful moments of humor and wit that I experienced before and enjoyed. You will see the original characters except for a few (no Darcy or Bingley here, sorry. This does take place before they met Lizzy and Jane). You read more about Mr Bennet who seems to take a more active role in the story (he helps trains his daughters to become warrior women). However the book also introduces new memorable ones which will prove unforgettable and absolutely hilarious to read. What I thought was interesting was the nice reference made with the mysterious 'soldier' the left and broke Mrs Bennet's heart when she was a girl. If you're well versed in P & P then you'd know what I'm taking about. It's these little references to the main novel that make the prequel do justice to P & P & Z. Readers also be advised, this book is meant to be a parody, and a funny one at that. If you treat it with a sense of humor, enjoyment is increased tenfold.

Of the new characters, I enjoyed Dr Keckilpenny (really, with a name like that, what's not to enjoy?) the most. First, because no one seems to get his name right (except for Lizzy), and second because he just seemed to be so friendly and so likable. Lord Lumpley played your average greaseball with a secret ' I especially enjoyed how he tried his advances on Jane, but to no avail. Then you get one of the most interesting characters I have ever seen, and that is Captain Cannon who uses four of his soldiers as arms and limbs (you have just to read it to get a good laugh). The moment I started reading about his arms and limbs made me laugh, but it made the book much more enjoyable with these kinds of new, strange yet quirky characters.

Format: Paperback
I have to say that this book was excellent! I thought Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was a good one, but this surpasses the first. At least once in almost every chapter I found myself laughing out loud at what the characters have to say, or their actions or the subtleties the author implies but aren't played right out for you. The "new" characters are often hilarious and you can tell Hockensmith is having a great time telling this story and using the vernacular / writing style of the time to deliver this. I am amused right now reflecting on the crippled Captain Cannon, his "Limbs" and Mrs. Bennet. I applaud this one.

What would I have wanted to know before purchasing this product? It's hilarious, it's not overly long, it's original, and there are multiple scenes not for the squeamish.

Very well done!

Format: Paperback
This novel benefits from being original instead of a mashup with a specific Austen novel. This frees him to create a more exciting story arc, unburdened by depictions of nonstop social occasions. The author does try for a period sound to the prose, and mostly succeeds. As well, we get to know all the Bennets in more detail, and come to like and sympathize with them while they dash about dispatching zombies. Even the youngest of the girls get into the spirit, enjoying the action. The novel is entertaining, dramatic, funny, and even sad in places. A real page-turner.
