Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith

The plot and most of the words are the same as Austenís classic Pride and Prejudice streamlined a bit so as to be clearer. A plague of zombies all over England is integrated into the story in such a way as to clarify the motivations of the original characters and improve the book. It is as if this is the original version of the book and Jane made a hasty decision to remove all references to zombies, which left holes in the story that cannot be explained as well in any other way. It is a riot. Four stars.
