Pride and Prejudice and Zombies - Seth Grahame-Smith

I've had this book for a long, long while but never really gathered the will to actually read it. With the movie coming out soon, I figured now was as good as time as any to finally knock this one of the tbr list.


I'm kind of wavering on how many stars to give this one. If I were to rate the book alone, I'd lean more toward the 2.5ish stars, but the sheer audacity of zombifying one of the most beloved romance novels of all times just deserves all of the stars. Not to mention the random sexual innuendoes between our Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. Hilarious and hilariously bad at the same time. The ridiculousness of it all is just astounding, but yet it is done in a way that you just keep reading to see what else the author is actually going to do with the story. It was just...I don't even know. I enjoyed the occasional humor and heavy sarcasm, but otherwise it was was 200+ pages of eye-rolling madness that literally only kept me turning the pages just to see what else this author could think up to do to this story.



On a side note. Are we done with zombies yet?
