Orgullo y prejuicio y zombis (Spanish Edition)

«Es una verdad universalmente reconocida que un zombi que tiene cerebro necesita mas cerebros». Asi empieza Orgullo y prejuicio y zombis, una version ampliada de la clasica novela de Jane Austen, solo que con escalofriantes escenas de zombis que siembran el terror y devoran a seres humanos. Cuando esa misteriosa plaga llega a la apacible poblacion inglesa de Meryton y los difuntos empiezan a resucitar convertidos en temibles muertos vivientes, la intrepida heroina Elizabeth Bennett tendra que acabar con la amenaza y, al mismo tiempo, evitar que la llegada del altivo y arrogante senor Darcy la distraiga de su empeno. Reescritura en clave de solfa de un clasico fundamental, Orgullo y prejuicio y zombis es una comedia deliciosa, aderezada con civilizadas peleas entre los dos jovenes enamorados y otras mas violentas en el ensangrentado campo de batalla donde Elizabeth libra una guerra sin cuartel contra legiones de zombis que se alimentan de seres humanos. Orgullo y prejuicio y zombis, con sus desenganos amorosos, sus duelos, su canibalismo y sus cadaveres putrefactos, transforma una obra maestra de la literatura mundial en algo que realmente desearemos leer. / "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 Merytonand 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 loversand even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead. Can she 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 read.

I tried to resist. When everyone starting losing their shit over this book and pre-ordering it, I told myself that this was a literary bandwagon I wouldn't jump on. I read the reviews posted here, and saw that for the most part the consensus was that this book was grossly overrated. All the parts... ...more

Since I am known by my friends as a Jane Austen person, SEVENTEEN different people sent me the link to this publishing announcement. Even though the book won't be published for another two months, a friend managed to procure an advanced copy (aka Word doc of the finished product), and so I read i... ...more

Taking my cue from the emotional ratings of the goodreads star system (and I can only muster two stars for this book), I offer you a fully gut reaction to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of some sweet weaponry to defeat the hoards of zombie flesh eating natives"

By Sparring (The United States) · ★★★★★ · June 06, 2009
this book is a beautiful fantasy, as if someone reached into my head, pulled out two of my dearest loves, and put them together in such a brilliantly captivating fashion as to make me giggle aloud quite inappropriately in public places where i happen to find myself reading.

This is the biggest case of false advertisement that I’ve seen since The Never Ending Story!!! They claim that in this book you’ll find some Ultra-Violent Zombie Mayhem… but they lie!!! They lie I say!!!! They only have a couple of scenes with some mild zombie violence and that’s it! the rest is... ...more

The Pride and Prejudice we all know has been re-imagined. England is over run with brain lusting Zombies. Elizabeth and her sisters are trained and practiced in the deadly art of Zombie slaying. Elizabeth’s best friend has been stricken with the “strange plague”. And a true gentleman beheads the... ...more

There's an old Calvin and Hobbes comic strip in which Calvin, like he is wont to do, goes off on a particularly wild flight of fancy about T-rexes flying F-14s and bombing his school. The joke of the strip is Calvin shrieking happily "THIS IS SO AWESOME!" while Hobbes sighs "THIS IS SO STUPID".

This is one of the few classics that lays bare the massive scourge of the undead that blighted so much of English life in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It has been stated that Austen and Grahame-Smith's works critique the novels of sensibility of the second half of the eighteenth centu... ...more
By Carrie (Williamsburg, KY) · ★☆☆☆☆ · July 07, 2009
I was under the impression that this would by and large be Pride and Prejudice intact with the simple insertion of zombies in some places. Rather, it is very nearly an entire rewrite of the original, and not an improvement upon it. Grahame-Smith takes it upon himself to explain and over explain t... ...more
