Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance - Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies - Seth Grahame-Smith Among the three (so far) Quirk classics, to me, only Pride and Zombies stands out as a, well, true classic. It alters some parts of the story to wonderfully accommodate the unmentionables, making for a humorous and revolting read. If you think the latter was too much, well, it is a book on zombies after all! I have to mention though that some of the illustrations were wrong; they didn't go with the descriptions in the story (for instance: the scene with Lady Catherine and Elizabeth's fight, together with the 3 ninjas).
