Pride And Prejudice And Zombies

Well, courtesy of Mr Bruce of the Cool Shite Team, I've now had the opportunity to read the eagerly awaited "Pride And Prejudice And Zombies" by Seth Grahame-Smith (and Jane Austen.)

For the rest of you eager awaiters, I regret to announce I was less than captivated. Full review by your faithful scribe to be found here.


  1. I thought the illustrations were a nice touch.
    Also Ninja's, right there the novel improved with the addition of ninja's. I still think it make it 1,000,000 better than the original with the addtion of Zombies but that's just me.

    but his next work

    Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

    MUST rock -

    especially since there is no 'orignal' story for him to adheare too closely to which is one of the problems you have cited in your review.

    I'll probably get that one as well.

    Though I agree completely 'Saun of the Dead' is a much better Rom_Com_Zom.

  2. Oooh! I like Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as a concept. And if he lets it off the chain and writes it with at least 19th century language, it should be fun.

  3. The only parody of literature I have read is 'Bored of the Rings'. It would have been much better if zombies and ninjas had been included. However, one could argue that the Bad Guy in LOTR is a zombie. That got me thinking how many other zobies are there in literature. Being lazy, the best I could come up with was Kafka's possibly zombie cockroach.
