" It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains. "

So begins "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," an expanded edition of the beloved Jane Austen novel featuring all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem. 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. Can Elizabeth vanquish the spawn of Satan? And overcome the social prejudices of the class-conscious landed gentry? Complete with romance, heartbreak, swordfights, cannibalism, and thousands of rotting corpses, "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" transforms a masterpiece of world literature into something you d actually want to listen to.

The reader makes this audiobook very, very enjoyable. So enjoyable that I also listened to the sequel "Dreadfully Ever After". I wish all readers were this talented.

Makes Jane Austen accessible, to a degree, for those who don't like her work all that well.

It's a fun, silly book. The voice actress is wonderful. I was a little disappointed with the book, though. The author could have done so much with having zombies in the story, but I thought it sort of fell short. Still, some parts were pretty funny.
