Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (P&P&Z)

With just two weeks until the highly anticipated release of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the book reviews are beginning to come out. They include excerpts that reveal some plot details, including chivalry, minor characters, and … ninjas!

Entertainment Weekly‘s review gives the book an A- and discusses opposing Chinese and Japanese zombie fighting techniques in Regency England. Its excerpt reveals some of the nuances involved when Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy slay zombies together.

The San Luis Obispo Tribune‘s mostly positive review borders on giving spoilers when it comes to a few of the book’s minor characters (Wickham and Collins). It mentions that the end of the book contains a “Readers Discussion guide”, that actually asks, “Can you imagine what the book would be like without the zombies?” Yes, the reviewer can: “Something like Pride and Prejudice.”
