‘Pride + Prejudice + Zombies’: A Literary Mash up in Which Darcy and Lizzy (*gasp!*) Fight Zombies

June 28, 2016 6 Comments

I’m over on Silver Petticoat today chatting up the Pride + Prejudice + Zombies book, a novel that is recently adapted as a major motion picture. With Lily James and Sam Riley, the film sounds like it’ll be a fun time sure to entertain those of us who like a fun adventure.

A kind of “literary mash-up” and retelling, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (of a sort) is sassy, creative fiction. Ironically, I found it as relevant to today’s society (is there anything that cannot be cured by a dose of infected zombies? *sarcasm*), as it might appeal to those who admire the old literary language that Austen wrote with such class and grace.

ADAPTATION RECOMMENDATION 

Of course, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has already been adapted earlier this year starring Lily James and Sam Riley. But if you like Austen mashups like Lost In Austen or Austenland, you might also enjoy this one although those aforementioned noticeably lack the addition of zombies. For those who like contemporary films, Warm Bodies is also an adorable rom-com involving zombies.

    I loved this movie! I haven't read the book though. I've been meaning to!

      ME TOO!! The movie is so much fun – and for the most part, the book is equally so. :)

    Pride & Prejudice is my favorite book but I’ve never read this spinoff.
