3. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls by Steve Hockensmith
“Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls (2010) is a parody novel by Steve Hockensmith. It is a prequel to Seth Grahame-Smith’s 2009 novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, focusing on “the early life and training of Elizabeth Bennet, heroine of the earlier Pride and Prejudice and Zombies as she strove to become a gifted zombie hunter, with some mishaps in her early romantic encounters also included.” It was first published by Quirk Books on March 23, 2010.”
This book was a relatively quick-read, and quite entertaining. The writing style is (obviously) different then Pride & Prejudice, and Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, and it weird to hear Elizabeth Bennet’s voice so differently at first. Partially because there was a tad more sexual innuendo in this book too. Go read it.
