Quirk Classic title number 3 - Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls by Jane Austen and Steve Hockensmith.
I love the concept of Quirk Classics - take a classic and turn it on it's head while still being respectful of the classic.
Although I enjoy reading the classics, they can be heavy to read, and I know when I was younger it was certainly dreadful to read them.
Quirk makes re-reading them fun and shines a completely new light on a familiar story, making the read an adventure to see what twist is coming next - lightning the heavy load of a stuffy classic.
Even more of a twist, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls is a prequel - Pride and Prejudice didn't have a prequel, so you'll be reading completely uncharted territory!
And don't feel bad if you haven't read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies - this is a prequel!
In this terrifying and hilarious prequel, we witness the genesis of the zombie plague in early-nineteenth-century England. We watch Elizabeth Bennet evolve from a naïve young teenager into a savage slayer of the undead. We laugh as she begins her first clumsy training with nunchucks and katana swords and cry when her first blush with romance goes tragically awry. Written by acclaimed novelist (and Edgar Award nominee) Steve Hockensmith, Dawn of the Dreadfuls invites Austen fans to step back into Regency England, Land of the Undead!
