Jane Austen Vs. The Living Dead

Wow, who woulda thunk it?Someone either has way too much time on their hands or they’re a genius. Maybe they’re a genius with way too much time on their hands? Whatever the case is, the person is Seth Grahame-Smith and the book is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

I’ll just let that sink in for a moment...

Grahame-Smith has taken Jane Austen’s classic love story and inserted scenes of zombie carnage, which for some reason sounds more pleasant than a boring old period romance. Some “official” plot, if you’d like:

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies features the original text of Jane Austen's beloved novel with all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie action. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton—and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she's soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers—and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead.

Complete with 20 illustrations in the style of C. E. Brock (the original illustrator of Pride and Prejudice), this insanely funny expanded edition will introduce Jane Austen's classic novel to new legions of fans.

Wow. What more do you need to rush out and get this sucker right now? Hit the link below to get it through Evilshop!
