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.

Format: Paperback
There is little disagreement when one describes "Pride and Prejudice" as a classic, and while "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" may never achieve that classification, it certainly draws notice for its use of Jane Austen's story with a few alterations and extras done to change it from a story which deals with society, upbringing and morals into one which pokes fun at those aspects of the book and throws in some zombie action as well. A good portion of the book is taken from Jane Austen's, and so she is very rightly given top billing for the writing, but one cannot overlook the importance of Seth Grahame-Smith's contribution as it changes the entire character and feel of the story. Obviously, Seth deserves credit for coming up with the idea as well.

While being a great idea, the execution of it is somewhat uneven. A large number of the changes made in the story involve references to the "deadly arts" or descriptions of what weapons they have with them, and as a result those types of changes become repetitive and are overdone. What I enjoyed much more were the subtle, and not so subtle, changes in dialogue. Sometimes these changes appear to be almost random, but many of them are focused on including insults aimed at Mr. Collins. A couple of them were so well done that I found myself laughing out loud at them. The other type of change that Seth Grahame-Smith made was to the plot, and these changes were also very enjoyable. These were aimed at Charlotte, Mr. Collins, and Mr. Wickham, and while one might have wanted to see more of these, they are the trickiest type of change because it was clearly important to stick with most of the writing from the original novel.

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.
