Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

Ce n'est pas mal du tout. Le dessin est dans le style viellot noir et blanc. L'histoire est très déjantée mais sa base sur des valeurs sures.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 A zombie in possession of brains... 18 mai 2010
Par E. A Solinas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Everybodu knows about "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" -- Jane Austen's classic comedy of manners, zombies and ninjas, blah blah blah. Unfortunately, the book doesn't really translate well into a graphic novel -- it falls completely flat because of the patchy editing and some of the laziest artwork I've ever seen, which ends up confusing an otherwise enjoyable spoof.

You know the drill: the Bennett family is in an uproar when wealthy Mr. Bingley moves into the neighborhood, and Mrs. Bennett is especially happy when he takes a liking to the eldest Bennett daughter Jane. At the same time, Elizabeth matches wits with the haughty Mr. Darcy, rebuffs her toadyish cousin Mr. Collins, and befriends the hunky flirty Mr. Wickham (who claims to have been wronged by Wickham). Scandals, weddings and nasty old bats ensue.

However, this isn't exactly the Jane Austen story one would expect. England is overrun by a plague that turns people into shambling zombies. The Sisters Bennet are deadly Shaolin-trained warriors (Lizzle "has something more of the killer instinct than her sisters"), Lady Catherine is a feared zombie-slayer with an army of ninjas, balls are crashed by the undead, and Charlotte Lucas accepts Mr. Collins' proposal after she's infected by the zombie plague. I guess marriage to the professional toady isn't quite as bad as becoming a zombie.

"Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" was the start of the current ongoing fad for adding zombies, sea monsters, werewolves, vampires and other horror tropes to classic literature. It actually seems like a really cool idea for a graphic novel, but unfortunately the result is a hastily slapped-together cash-in -- and the biggest problem is the artwork.

The concept is still pretty cool, and of course the dialogue is pretty hilarious ("I prefer a great many things to cards, Mr. Hurst. Not the least of which is the sensation of a newly sharpened blade as a punctures the round belly of a man"). But the editing is rather patchy, jumping quickly from scene to scene.

And the artwork is just TERRIBLE. The character designs look realistic and well-proportioned, and there are some very gross action scenes included. BUUUUUUUTTTT.... the artwork is abysmally lazy and halfhearted -- it literally looks like somebody started sketching out the artwork in pencil, decided, "Eh, this is good enough. I'll just release these rough sketches," and slapped together the graphic novel on the spot. It literally looks unfinished! Would it have killed the publishers to include some ink?

Additionally, both men and women look way too similar -- Lizzie, Lydia and Mrs. Bennett (yes, Mrs Bennett!) are almost identical, and I have trouble telling Darcy from Bingley or Wickham. I can only tell Jane apart from the other girls because she has dark hair, and Charlotte because she... well, never mind.

"Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Graphic Novel" is as disappointing as Sir William's zombie-slaying abilities -- while the story is diverting, the haphazard artwork is absolutely disastrous. Avoid this as you would the unmentionables.

I'm a Pride and Prejudice fanatic and I had to have this for my collection. It follows the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies novel quite well and it was fun to see it in graphic novel form.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Review of Pride and Prejudice, The Graphic Novel 19 juillet 2010
Par Ryan Mease - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Note: I haven't read either the original work by Austen, or the novel with Zombies.

I genuinely enjoyed this take on Victorian Britain, and what I assume to be a pleasing satire of Jane Austen's original novel. As I read, I worked to construct possible parallels that might cover for original pieces of Austen. The comic is funny, consistent, and (thanks to Austen) features great characters and a fitting end.

I don't understand why they didn't bother to ink the comic. Does Jane Austen really need to be in black and white? Also, this is a very talky comic, with plenty of dialogue on every page; I prefer something more fast-paced, though you may prefer the detailed plot an adaption like this offers.

Par Shirlz - Publié sur Amazon.com

I thoroughly enjoyed Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance - Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!. So when I heard P&P&Z the Graphic Novel was coming out I was excited to purchase it. I even pre-ordered it.
But after receiving it and giving it a quick read through, all I can say is "it's OK."

Though the story is nicely adapted into the graphic novel format, I simply can't get past the drawings--which are entirely in black and white. I read the first few pages and quickly had to put it down because my eyes started to hurt. I'm 25 years old. My eyes shouldn't be hurting! Now, don't get me wrong, I have nothing against strictly black and white drawings (I am a big fan of The Walking Dead Compendium Volume 1), I just don't feel they were done right.

I know the goal was to make it look similar to the drawings featured in P&P&Z--but I'm sad to say it just isn't working for me. The reason the drawings in the novel worked was because they were so detailed! This gn looks more like sketches.

For those who are a fan of the original Austen Novel, I suggest purchasing Pride and Prejudice (Graphic Novel) Its nicely done.

For those who loved P&P&Z the novel, like I did. I say, there's no harm in getting this gn, just don't expect much on the visual side.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Great zombie art, but assumes you already know the story 3 mai 2014
Par S. Mercier - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I want to start this review off by saying that I have never read the original Pride and Prejudice, nor have I read the text version of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. All I have to go on for the basics of the original story really are <a href="http://www.lizziebennet.com/">The Lizzie Bennet Diaries</a> web series and a full-length movie adaptation that I vaguely remember watching a very long time ago.

So, with that on the table, let's talk about the graphic novel. The art in this book was very detailed, but there were some panels that looked almost like sketched drafts. I'm not sure if this is typical because I have just started to read graphic novels, but this bugged me a little bit. "Drafts" aside, the art illustrating the zombie fights is particularly impressive. The artist is able to illustrate the danger, urgency, and confusion of the moment very well and the gore is very realistic.

As for the story, I really enjoyed the integration of so many fun, unexpected elements into the original story, the ninjas being my personal favorite. I did however feel a bit lost at times due to the fact that I am not as familiar with the original story as I'd like to be. People are briefly introduced and plot twists are oftentimes glossed over very quickly, leaving the reader disconnected from the story and attempting to piece together what is going on based on context. There was also a bit of a lull in plot movement about 75% of the way through the story, but things pick back up relatively quickly.

Overall, this is a decent graphic novel which will be best enjoyed by fans of the original Pride and Prejudice and Zombies book or the traditional, zombie-free version of the story. This is simply due to the fact that the graphic novel assumes some level of prior knowledge about the story in order to really understand what is going on. However, if you really love zombies and are willing to accept some level of confusion in your reading experience, the zombie art in this book is really fantastic and you should give it a shot anyway.
