È cosa nota e universalmente riconosciuta che uno zombie in possesso di un cervello debba essere in cerca di altro cervello. Così inizia Orgoglio e pregiudizio e zombie, versione fedelmente aggiornata del celeberrimo (e amatissimo) capolavoro di Jane Austen, grazie a numerose scene «inedite» in cui, a farla da protagonisti, sono appunto gli zombie. Pubblicato da una piccola casa editrice americana, questo romanzo ha suscitato l’entusiasmo sia dei neofiti sia dei più fanatici ammiratori della Austen, scalando in breve tempo tutte le classifiche di vendita e imponendosi come il fenomeno editoriale dell’anno. E il motivo di un successo tanto clamoroso è semplice: al fascino di una storia d’amore senza tempo, si aggiunge il divertimento di una lotta senza esclusione di colpi contro l’orribile flagello che si è abbattuto sull’Inghilterra, arrivando fino al tranquillo villaggio di Meryton, dove l’indomita Elizabeth Bennet, insieme con le sue sorelle, è impegnata a contrastare orde di famelici morti viventi. Un ruolo che le calza a pennello, almeno finché non arriva il bello e scontroso Mr Darcy a distrarla... Pieno di romanticismo e avventura, di cuori infranti e cadaveri affamati, di argute schermaglie e duelli all’arma bianca, Orgoglio e pregiudizio e zombie trasforma una pietra miliare della letteratura mondiale in un libro che si ha, finalmente, davvero voglia di leggere. O che non si vede l’ora di rileggere.

I tried to resist. When everyone starting losing their shit over this book and pre-ordering it, I told myself that this was a literary bandwagon I wouldn't jump on. I read the reviews posted here, and saw that for the most part the consensus was that this book was grossly overrated. All the parts th Leggi tutto
If you are an Austen purist, you probably will not like this. If you are a zombie purist, you will probably not like this. If you can accept two seemingly unrelated worlds colliding in a creative, fun, and gruesome tale that both pokes fun of and pays homage to each genre – step right up and check thi Leggi tutto
Since I am known by my friends as a Jane Austen person, SEVENTEEN different people sent me the link to this publishing announcement. Even though the book won't be published for another two months, a friend managed to procure an advanced copy (aka Word doc of the finished product), and so I read it o Leggi tutto
The movie was a billion times better than the book... How often do you get to say that ? What a great idea! Take a universally loved classic and spice it up with some zombies! Honestly, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this thing. I just knew that it was going to be so much fun to read! I was wrong. Leggi tutto
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, #1), Seth Grahame-Smith, Jane Austen It is a mashup combining Jane Austen's classic novel Pride and Prejudice (1813) with elements of modern zombie fiction, crediting Austen as co-author.

Taking my cue from the emotional ratings of the goodreads star system (and I can only muster two stars for this book), I offer you a fully gut reaction to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. didn’t like it 1. The ninjafication of Lizzy and the Bennet sisters. It was completely idiotic. The book really s Leggi tutto
Find all of my reviews at: http://52bookminimum.blogspot.com/ When I saw the theme of the winter library challenge was “Classics Re-Mixed” I knew Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was going to be one of the five books I would read – or in this case re-read. I’m not a “re-reader” by nature, but P&P Leggi tutto
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is brilliant and hilarious. This is a mash-up, meaning that Graham-Smith used the actual text of Jane Austin’s novel (she is listed as a co-author) and inserted his zombie story along the original storyline. The trouble with most horror stories, whether print or film, Leggi tutto
Um...oh my gosh...what to say? A quarter of me thinks I should be outraged, the other three-quarters is insanely giggling at the very idea, and then there's the very small uncounted minority of me that is throwing her fist in the air and screaming "Finally! This is the best idea ever!" And now that I Leggi tutto
I'm sorry to say but this one didn't work for me, at all. To begin with, this is almost a word for word copy of Pride and Prejudice, the zombies are mentioned but not really used. They are just a setting, there's no plot involving them, no battle, nothing! Believe me, I read on and on waiting for so Leggi tutto
