Pride And Prejudice And Zombie's very much keeps the the amazing original story line but with zombies eating cauliflower thinking they are brains, a zombie plague has taken over the world and the Bennet sister are the protectors of there home but things get shaken up when a Mr Bingley and a Mr Darcy show up. If you love the original book you will also like this because it has all of your Favourite and not so favourite characters but they are just more Bad-Ass

I have mixed views on this book, i liked it but there were some parts i found to be lacking something, some interaction, some fighting ECT.... . It had the romance and the core story of Pride and Prejudice and it all was the same but some characters had very different ending and certain character got their comeuppance that they didn't get in the original novel. Elizabeth was as witty and charming as ever and Mr Darcy was as brooding and Proud and Bad-Ass as ever i think the only character i didn't care much for in this version was Mr Bingley, in P&P & zombies they made him weak stomached and i just couldn't see how he and a warrior like Darcy could ever be friends but other then that i loved all of the character changes and also the illustration's inside were so good. 

Personally i think there wasn't so much change that it ruined the book but it also didn't make it any better either it was on par with Austen's original book and with stories like this where they take a classic loved by millions and not butcher the true story i must congratulate Grahame-Smith for making a book that will hopefully get a wider range of readers than P&P might get because it is a Romance Classic

Until Next Time
Happy Reading
