Book Review: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Sorry its been awhile guys. I have just been super busy and reading my book has not taken first priority in life lately. I mean that is understandable right? Anyway, I did finally finish the next book last night. Obviously nothing too deep or anything. I mean how deep can you get with Pride and Prejudice mixed with zombies? There aren’t going to be any life lessons there, that’s for sure. This was definitely just a fun read.

Likes:
I love the Pride and Prejudice storyline. I have always enjoyed Jane Austen and have seen the six-hour long Pride and Prejudice from BBC as well as the Keira Knightly one. I also own both of them as well. There are times when I prefer P&P to my usual Sci-Fi or horror choices. So, the storyline is still great! The fact that they added in zombies, fuels my desire for romance as well as horror or whatever you classify zombies as. It added a nice little twist to the original storyline.

Dislikes:
The zombie bits honestly did not add as much to the storyline as I was hoping. I mean it was most of the time just a little add here and there. Nothing too dramatic. I would’ve liked more zombie bits to be quite honest. If you are going to add zombies, add zombies. If not, just forget about it.

Overall:
I loved it! It really was such a great read! Again, I love the original story line. The zombies did not take away from that at all, which was awesome. It wasn’t like they totally messed with the original, they just added in some zombies, so that was fun. I really enjoy watching the love between Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth unfold. There came a point in the book where I couldn’t put the book down even though I knew what happened. I seriously read for about four hours when I got home last night from work. I just wanted to read what happened next even though I know it by heart. The fun part of reading a book after watching the movies is that you picture the movie (adding in zombies, of course) as you are reading.

The next book is: Christian Outdoor Leadership by Ashley Denton (one of our professors for our Masters program.)

In other news, I finished my pocket scarf. Pictures to come soon I promise. I took one with my phone but I need to take a picture with my camera now. Haha.

I also got accepted into Seminary for the spring! Yay! I was so excited when the admissions counselor called to tell me and then when I actually got the acceptance letter in the mail yesterday! I have been working to get this acceptance since about March so it was about time that I finally got accepted. Getting transcripts sent over to them. Them processing my application, etc. took wayyyyyy too long. But the Lord provides and I am off to get my Masters in Outdoor Leadership come Spring 2013. Whoohoo!

  1. Aw, that makes me want to read P & P again. I have 6 books sitting on my desk to write about. I have been keeping up with you on the weekly challenge, but just not writing about them. I guess I don’t have to write about them, do I. I may just change my reading list on my blog to keep track. Anyway, deep into a quilting novel series and am having trouble putting them down at night. (BTW, this is the first comment ever posted from my new computer.) Slowwwly getting the hang of it.
