message 1: by Nevey Badr (new)

Nevey Badr It seams fun to have such famous classical and turn it into horror story. Indeed it's sort of appreciation to the classicals we all love. I don't mind reading them as long as they are well writen.


message 2: by Alexandra (new)

Alexandra Lawrence I didn't enjoy Pride and Prejudice and Zombies at all, I found it was just a nearly word for word rehash of the original. Will I enjoy any of these?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads This is one of the most bizarre trends in publishing that I can remember.


message 4: by Claire (new)

Claire This trend is so much fun.


message 5: by Alex (new)

Alex Mortensen i loved pride and prejudice and zombies, and i've read a few others on this list! As I am so into the classics, but also monstery goodness, these are great! Can't wait to read more of these!


message 6: by Bookworm007 (new)

Bookworm007 it's all because of twilight that wannabe authors are turning wonderful classics into retarded stories that include vampires and other demented creatures. they were probably like "if i can't come up with a story like twilight, then i'll just turn someone else's story into one SIMILAR to twilight. that way people who like twilight will buy it because it has creatures like the ones from twilight."


message 7: by Clinton (new)

Clinton Eh, only the Quirk Classics seem to do it for me. The rest just seem like knockoffs. I particularly admire the literary "works" of Ben H. Winters.


message 8: by Amanda (new)

Amanda Kay these books crack me up! nothing wrong with having a little fun with the classics.


message 9: by Myles (last edited Nov 26, 2010 10:47PM) (new)

Myles I had given up on this trend ages ago, but I have to admit, the idea of The Meowmorphosis got to me.

The next wave of publishing will be taking the monsters out of classics.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads That is one bizarre collection of titles.


message 11: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer S I've read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreafuls... can't wait to read the others, like Little Vampire Women (sounds icky though) or Little Women and Werewolves, or the Romeo and Juliet one. Don't get me wrong; I love classic books. But adding zombies, werewolves, monsters... fun! (Though vampires don't sound appealing because of Twilight)

I wonder if they'll make a Gone With The Wind with zombies or something.


message 12: by Erika (last edited May 07, 2011 01:25AM) (new)

Erika How do I add this as my favorite list?
I haven't read any of them, but it sounds fun!


message 13: by Chrystine (new)

Chrystine I read Jane Slayre and loved that, but so far that's it... I wanna read all the vampire one's first....


message 14: by Orionskie (new)

Orionskie think its great & so does our local librarian. its a start for lots of kids who dont like to read. think ALMOST anything that will get someone interested in opening a book & reading cant be wrong

Well, wasn't that the point? To read the original book, plus zombies?!?


message 16: by Dorian (new)

Dorian I wrote my bachelor's thesis on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Dawn of the Dreadfuls and Mr Darcy, Vampyre back when the genre was still really new, there was hardly any documented information on mashups! I love seeing so many awesomely created books and can't wait to read some of them. Especially Dreadfully ever after, I had no idea this was coming up when I wrote my thesis :)


message 17: by Susan (new)

Susan Rose Thanks for this list I love a good monster mash up and im really looking forward to reading some of these


message 18: by Mallory (new)

Mallory I have yet to read Pride and Prejudice (and Zombies) and I'm reading Jane Eyre as I'm typing this, but I find the concept of spicing up classics with monsters somewhat interesting rather than stupid and desecrating.

It has nothing to do with twilight. If you had read any of them you would know. People say it's an attempt at money, but I personally see it as a way to bring interest in the classics. A teenager picks up one these because of the title, then he says "wow, that was interesting."And, just maybe, he decides to go out a get a copy of the original to read.


message 20: by Willow (new)

Willow This is a hilarious list.

Steven Thompson William wrote: "People say it's an attempt at money, but I personally see it as a way to bring interest in the classics."

Precisely, William. I could never get my kids to read "The Red Badge of Courage" on their own unless I threatened to sell their Xbox on Ebay. Add zombies to the mix, and suddenly they're interested.

Also, trying to write in the voice of the original author is quite difficult. Look at the Amazon reviews of PPZ and you'll find that, with people who felt that Seth Grahame-Smith failed to do that, it is one of their biggest complaints about the book.


message 22: by Grace (new)

Grace Pride and Predjudice and Zombies was the best! It wasn't word for word like some but had a new combination of classic lines and punching action with a decent knowledge of katana's and weapons.


Erin (Paperback stash) *is juggle-reading* I've only read Jane Eyre, and I loved it, but I heard it was one of the better ones. Have a few others to read when I get around to it.
