Yes, this book exists.
"Pride and Prejudice and Zombies features the original text of Jane Austen’s beloved novel with all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie action. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton—and 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 lovers—and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead."
That's it in a nutshell but isn't it interesting how many adaptations of Jane Austen stuff there is out there? It was only a matter of time until this idea was seized upon and it's only a matter of time until this is made into a film (oh please, please, pleeeeeeeeeeeeease let me be able to work on it! Can you imagine- all the lovely gentility and regency-era stuff I adore combined with what would be the most awesome props, prosthetics and make-up production piece ever). I'm about 4 chapters in because I'm pretty busy on film set right now but it's already proving quite funny. Lizzie Bennet, instead of being merely affronted at Darcy's initial rudeness, wants to follow him outside and open his throat. It's very me.
"The more unfortunate souls nearest to the windows were seized and feasted upon by the unmentionables."- GOLD. The book comes complete with illustrations done in the style of the original illustrator of Austen's classic which makes it even more hilarious to see Lizzie and her sisters doing the "Pentagram Of Death".
How do I know all this? Cos I have a copy of it in my hot little hands =D. Elaine, lovely soul that she is, saw it on my Facebook status and got a copy for me when she saw it in the bookstore. I love you Elaine! Expect me to be laughing at many small little violent things for the next week or so.
