Editorial Reviews

Review

“With the zombie Austen mashup mania showing no sign of abating, this is a must-read for fans and a must-buy for the libraries serving them.”—Booklist Online

“The further they get from Jane Austen, the better the zombie mash-up books become. Enter Dreadfully Ever After by Steve Hockensmith.”—McClatchy News Service

“A masterpiece of parody and wit.”—Fangoria

About the Author

Steve Hockensmith is the author of the New York Times best seller Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls and several other novels, including the Edgar Award nominee Holmes on the Range. Critics have hailed his books as “hilarious” (Entertainment Weekly), “dazzling” (The Boston Globe), “uproarious” (Publishers Weekly), “wonderfully entertaining” (Booklist), and “quirky and original” (The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette). He lives in Alameda, California, with his wife and two children. 

More About the Author

As you might have guessed by now, I am a writer. Most authors are (with the possible exception of Snooki). As a writer, it is my duty to spend large portions of my day sitting in front of a computer in ketchup-stained sweatpants while swilling enough coffee each hour to drown a chihuahua. This I cheerfully do. Occasionally, I even write something. Via this time-tested method of sitting, drinking coffee and writing, I have managed to produce several novels. Some people think they're pretty good. I will now fill the rest of my allotted space with quotes from positive reviews. Sorry. To make it more fun for everyone, I've slipped one fake review in with the real ones. See if you can spot it!

"Grade: A-...hilarious...delightfully offbeat...." --Entertainment Weekly on Holmes on the Range

"Other books and TV series have featured genre-melding cowboys armed with ratiocination as well as revolvers, but Hockensmith's take is quite special. There's his combination of intriguing mystery, breathless action, colorful characters and enough laugh-out-loud moments for the book to fit in the humorous crime category." --The Los Angeles Times on The Black Dove

"Hockensmith takes a concept that could have been terrible -- the backstory of the Bennet girls learning to fight the undead, setting the stage for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies -- and turns it into a gory and gross, wonderful and clever tale...a true delight, really." --Romantic Times on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls

"Hulk hate silly things puny humans call 'books.' Hulk smash The Da Vinci Code! Hulk smash puny Harry Potter! But Hockensmith books pretty good. Hulk no smash. Hulk want more sequels." --The Incredible Hulk on The Crack in the Lens

Highly recommended for those who like zombies and twisted literature.

In contrast, while I enjoyed seeing some of Austen's more minor characters developed in Dreadfully Ever After, I felt out of touch with the original lead characters.
NebraskaIcebergs
I laughed out loud as I read and the book kept me hooked wondering what would happen next.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dreadfully Ever After (Quirk Classics)

As any reader of my reviews knows I love the "Pride & Prejudice & Zombies" series of books. I believe that the two books before this one are classics and I am pleased to tell you that this one is very much the same. I always loved the idea of the classic story being told with Zombies in the mix and the prequel just added to it. Now here we have a sequel that only adds to the wonderful story but sadly is bringing it to an end. Hopefully the return to this world one day and give as some more great stories.

The story picks up years after the first book with the married couple of Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy. They have had a great marriage some four years later and things could not be going better, until. One day Fitz gets attacked and bitten by a Dreadful child and while Liz knows what she should do she does not kill him. Even though it would be the right thing to do, she instead seeks help from a lady named Catherine. The thing is she may know of a cure that could bring Fritz back. So off Liz goes with family in tact on another Zombie Slaughtering adventure.

The book is very well written and has that same great style the previous ones had and yet still is different. I don't know about what other people think but I found this one just as fun and funny as the previous two. I mean the way people really talked back then mixed in with the zombie attack, pure genius. You should also remember that things are not always what they seem, that is all I am going to say. All in all I really enjoyed this book like I did the previous two, I highly recommend this book to all who liked the first two, and even then you may like this even without reading those two.

Format: Paperback
DREADFULLY EVER AFTER is the final installment in the PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES mashup trilogy. Whereas the first book in the series (the aptly named PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES) - written by Seth Grahame-Smith - is a rework of Jane Austen's PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, the subsequent two novels (both penned by Steve Hockensmith) comprise original material. While DAWN OF THE DREAFULS precedes the events of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES by five years, DREADFULLY EVER AFTER is a sequel, following new bride Lizzie Bennet's desperate search for a cure to the zombie affliction that has overcome her beloved Mr. Darcy.

As with its predecessors, DREADFULLY EVER AFTER is bloody good fun. Action packed and filled with ninjas, zombie slayers, and reanimated corpses, DREADFULLY EVER AFTER retains much of the maudlin humor and sardonic wit that fans have come to know and love. If you didn't enjoy the previous two books or aren't a fan of the mashup genre in general, probably you aren't reading this review anyhow.

I listened to the previous installments on audiobook - between housework and exercise, it's one of my few opportunities for leisure "reading" - and slightly prefer that format for this series. But I received a copy of DREADFULLY EVER AFTER through Library Thing's Early Reviewer program, so I'm really in no position to complain. Either way, I can't wait for PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES to come to the big screen, Natalie Portman or no. BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER meets 28 DAYS LATER - and PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, of course. Score!

I absolutely loved Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Dawn of the Dreadfuls, not so much. It was OK, funny at times, but not nearly at the same level as the first book. Dreadfully Ever After tries hard to redeem the trilogy and, while still not the level of greatness as the first book, is certainly worth the time for anyone who liked P&P and Zombies. It's a fun read, especially if you don't go into it with really high expectations!

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
First, we had "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies." Then we got a prequel, "Dawn of the Dreadfuls."

And finally we have a sequel to round out this warped Regency romance-with-zombies trilogy: "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dreadfully Ever After." This time Steve Hockensmith whacks the Darcy-Bennett families with a threat much closer to home, and it's an amusing little ride with a very slow middle section.

After four years of marriage, Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy are taking a leisurely walk when Darcy is attacked and bitten by a little dreadful boy. Despite her training, Elizabeth's love for Darcy stops her from beheading and burning him; instead, she appeals to Lady Catherine for a cure. Lady Catherine reveals that a London scientist named Angus McFarquhar (hee hee!) has the cure, and she has a plan for getting it.

However, the plan involves Elizabeth leaving her infected husband at Rosings, and setting out to seduce the serum out of the scientist. Soon Lady Catherine's diabolical schemes pull the Bennett family to London, leading to a gruesome race against time involving a sexy ninja, a rabbit, a mystery man in a box, a bunch of dandies and the increasingly sinister Anne de Bourgh! Can Lizzy cure Darcy before he becomes an undead horror?

"Dreadfully Ever After" isn't quite as entertainingly tongue-in-cheek as the original "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," though it is fun to revisit Jane Austen's characters after four zombie-strewn years. And as anyone would expect of a "P&P&Z" sequel, there's bloody flesh-tearing gore aplenty.

And Hockensmith has plenty of fun mingling Regency mores (a gentleman's wife simply doesn't carry weapons!) with lots of ninjas, zombies, and martial-arts-filled scuffles.
