After reading Rose Pearson’s series, I saw the sequel to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies on sale. But I hadn’t read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. So I thought I would read that one next.
I’m not sure why, but zombies have never caught my imagination. As much as I love fantasy (and I surely do), zombies just don’t interest me. So I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect with this book.
In this one, Elizabeth Bennet travels to China to be trained in the deadly arts. Yet, the aristocracy prefers Japan’s training. Mr Darcy trains, of course, in the Japanese style.
Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)
In Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the story stays true to canon. Zombies add some flavor to the story. The Bingleys leave London to get away from the living dead. During the assembly, the horde attacked and the Bennet sisters slew the zombies, displaying their skills. The sickness provides several changes in the story itself. Want to learn more? Read it.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is an interesting variation. I must say that I’m not a fan. There was not enough changes in the story to warrant capturing my attention. There are so many other captivating variations that should be read before this one.

And in case you hadn’t figured it out, my plan for 2021 is to write a blog post for each book I read. Last year, I read 150 books. We’ll see how I do this year.
