Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith

The Regency classic meets Buffy the Vampire slayer in this hilarious mashup of Austen's best-known novel with flesh-eating undead. England is in the grip of a plague of zombies and the Bennet girls are keeping them at bay thanks to their arcane training in "the deadly arts." Elizabeth is distracted from her battle against the zombies by the arrival of Mr. Darcy, who is also well known for his swordsmanship. Will she marry him? Will she get her brains eaten? Most importantly, can the rotting bodies climbing out of their graves cause enough mayhem to disturb the manners of the country gentry?
