PPZ is by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith. Grahame-Smith took the original Austen classic and added the undead to it to make it more interesting--brilliant! In fact the book is about 85% Austen's original story word-for-word.
Here's one example of a change:
OPENING LINE OF PRIDE AND PREJUDICE:It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.OPENING LINE OF PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES:It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.
Too sweet! I've made it clear before that I'm a big fan of the zombies, so this is right up my alley. I love this teaser from the back cover:
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.
