ZombiesDrule Thinks

Dreadfully Ever AfterThere are of course three books in the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies trilogy, Dreadfully Ever After being the third.

Now firstly I haven’t read the other two books in the series, up until recently Zombiesdrule had a dead-icated book reviewer who would read the zombie novels as and when they got sent to us. Unfortunately said reviewer is no longer with us, so if anyone out there wants to fill the spot please drop me an email (zombie@zombiesdrule.com).

So on with my book review.

I was a little concerned about reading Dreadfully Ever After without reading the first two books, but it holds it’s own as a novel. It didn’t feel like I was missing any back story. I’m also not a huge Pride & Prejudice fan, sure I’ve read it, I was made to at school, but it’s not really my thing. Again that didn’t stop me from enjoying Dreadfully Ever After.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was basically Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice with zombies inserted into it, the second and third books are true sequels continuing to expand the character into their own new stories.

Dreadfully Ever After opens with our newly married protagonists, Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy, defending their village from an army of flesh-eating “unmentionables.” But the honeymoon has barely begun when poor Mr. Darcy is nipped by a rampaging dreadful. Elizabeth knows the proper course of action is to promptly behead her husband (and then burn the corpse, just to be safe).
But when she learns of a miracle antidote under development in London, she realizes there may be one last chance to save her true love—and for everyone to live happily ever after.

This so called review really doesn’t do the book justice, what I can say is this book is worth the read. It did make me laugh out loud and I really enjoyed the old style illustrations within the book.
