Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith
Want to delve into a classic, while simultaneously fulfilling your need for zombie action? Then look no further, for this is your book. All the elements, in full, of the classic are there- the witty discourse, the frantic Mrs. Bennett, the mysterious Mr. Darcy, but with the added extra that England has been overcome witha curious plague that turns the afflicted into brain-eating zombies. The Bennett girls, however, are all trained zombie killers, sworn by the Crown to protect England from evil. Even if you didn't like the original, this vamped up version just might be your thing. The final ending remains the same, but how much cooler is it that Mr. Darcy and Lizzy Bennett get to fight zombies together side by side? That's my kind of romance.
