Book Drunkard

“I am simply a 'book drunkard.' Books have the same irresistible temptation for me that liquor has for its devotee. I cannot withstand them.” L.M. Montgomery

Book Review


Virginie Says…

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by  Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith is a book I completely scoffed at when I first heard about it’s upcoming release.  I thought he was pretty nervy to mess with a book as great as Jane Austen’sPride_and_Prejudice_and_Zombies masterpiece and vowed not to read it.  Then the book came out and I kept hearing and reading all the great reviews.  I couldn’t believe it!  I knew I had to read it then, even if only to see what all the fuss was about.  I’m glad I did.

I’m going to go as far as saying I liked PPZ as much, maybe even more than the ‘original’.  The idea of the Bennet sisters lifting their skirts to kick some zombie butt had me laughing and reading until my eyes fell out of my head.  I love how Seth Grahame-Smith took familiar lines and stories from the book and peppered them with ‘unmentionables’.  The illustrations in the book were also terrific!  I found the writing style easy to read and understand (which is sometimes hard when you read  the great classics).

Big thanks to Quirk Books for sending me a copy for review!

  1. hahah glad you liked it!!! this was one of my favorite books 🙂 I’m looking forward to Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters!

  2. Oh you may have tempted me to read this. I’m such big P&P fan and I’m not sure if I could read this. It does sound like fun though, so I may have to give it a go.

  3. I’m interning at a high school library this semester and this book won’t stay on the shelf long enough for me to snag it! I’m looking forward to enjoying this one someday…

  4. Great review! I’ve been a bit reluctant in trying some of these new spin-offs. This one sounds like fun reading! Thanks:)

  5. I’ve got this on my list for the Everything Austen Challenge, so I’ll be reading it soon!
