PPZ Readalong/Readathon Thingy
The good people over at Quirk Books messaged me a while back and asked me if I would like to be a part of the two week READATHON celebrating the movie release Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith. I was all like, “Uhh, YEAH!” As if?! So they sent me a lovely copy of with the movie tie in cover. *LOVE*.
If you aren’t familiar with the book or movie, its… well, it is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, just…with zombies and bad assery and stuff.
Here is a snip-it of the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies movie trailer.
I can’t wait to see how they tie the Black Plague in with the start of the zombie apocalypse. I’m a huge fan of the Walking Dead, and the science of it…is the one thing I am waiting for the most on that show. Its that thing that is “missing”. I need to know how/why. Using a plague to introduce the zombies is going to be AWESOME! Well, I mean the plague was a horrible thing, but in the movie it will be awesome. Not saying the plague will be awesome. Saying having an answer will be awesome. *sigh* You know what I’m saying, stop.
Anyway, lets talk about the cover change for a second. I loved the first cover, for its – well- gore. I didn’t think I was going to like the movie tie in cover, at all, but here it is, and I it is really pretty. I can’t decide which one I like better.
In addition to the cover change, the new release also has a bunch of stills and stuff in it from the movie. Which is always a big bonus. I think if I had to choose which one to get now, I’d go with the movie tie in cover, just because it has the bonus material. I say that, but everytime I go to put the older cover in my “Giveaway Box” I can’t, and end up putting it back on the shelf. #ImSuchABookHoarder
by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith
Release Date: 2015-12-15
In the five years since its publication, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has become a true cultural phenomenon, amassing a legion of fans and spawning an entire “mash-up” genre.
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.
This movie tie-in edition features eight pages of color movie stills and a new introduction by Seth Grahame-Smith.
