I know Pride & Prejudice is considered a classic, but after reading the synopsis it just does not interest me. What does interest me greatly is stories about zombies. My question is for the people who have read both versions- Do I have to know the full original story to appreciate the one with zombies? I know some people will reply and say "But it's a classic and you should read it anyway and blah blah blah." Save it. Please, only people who can answer my question respond. Thank you.
Honestly, reading the original will probably make you appreciate the "&zombies" edition, but if you're intent on reading the "&zombies", then don't bother with the original. I've read both and while I love P&P to death, I want to burn the other for being such a poor adaptation. Seriously, the concept is good, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired. I recommend reading P&P&zombies first and then reading the original, if you want. To be truthful though, I'd rather recommend reading P&P and forgetting about zombies.
