Overview

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER-NOW AN EYE-POPPING GRAPHIC NOVEL OF MANNERS, MORALS, AND BRAIN-EATING MAYHEM It is known as "the strange plague," and its unfortunate victims are referred to only as "unmentionables" or "dreadfuls." All over England, the dead are rising again, and now even the daughters of Britain's best families must devote their lives to mastering the deadly arts. Elizabeth Bennet is a fearsome warrior whose ability with a sword is matched only by her quick wit and even sharper tongue. But she faces her most formidable foe yet in the haughty, conceited, and somehow strangely attractive Mr. Darcy. As the two lovers meet in the ballroom and on the battlefield, they'll soon learn that nothing-not even bands of ninjas, hordes of flesh-eating zombies, or disapproving aunts-can stop true love.

Biography

In 1801, George Austen retired from the clergy, and Jane, Cassandra, and their parents took up residence in Bath, a fashionable town Jane liked far less than her native village. Jane seems to have written little during this period. When Mr. Austen died in 1805, the three women, Mrs. Austen and her daughters, moved first to Southampton and then, partly subsidized by Jane's brothers, occupied a house in Chawton, a village not unlike Jane's first home. There she began to work on writing and pursued publishing once more, leading to the anonymous publication of Sense and Sensibility in 1811 and Pride and Prejudice in 1813, to modestly good reviews.

Known for her cheerful, modest, and witty character, Jane Austen had a busy family and social life, but as far as we know very little direct romantic experience. There were early flirtations, a quickly retracted agreement to marry the wealthy brother of a friend, and a rumored short-lived attachment -- while she was traveling -- that has not been verified. Her last years were quiet and devoted to family, friends, and writing her final novels. In 1817 she had to interrupt work on her last and unfinished novel, Sanditon, because she fell ill. She died on July 18, 1817, in Winchester, where she had been taken for medical treatment. After her death, her novels Northanger Abbey and Persuasion were published, together with a biographical notice, due to the efforts of her brother Henry. Austen is buried in Winchester Cathedral.

    A great review for all

    Pride, Predjudice, and Zombies
    Book report for the graphic novel
    This fantastic book Is one of the best books I¿ve ever read! Well for one thing, the true drama and action that is packed inside (and that is one of the first graphic novels I¿ve read). 5 sisters that are trained in the deadly arts and almost any martial fighting help fight off unmentionables (zombies) and live what would be called a considerable life in the 17-1800¿s.A great way to learn even more about the book would just to read it yourself like I did and I highly suggest it.

    Okay

    Just what the title says. So, I wasn't sure if I was going to like this. I mean with a title like that and all. But the art was good, expressions especially. And well I was hoping it would be in color. But it was still okay I guess. Detail with the zombies scenes were good. So much detail.
