“Never before have readers been able to read Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel side by side with Jane Austen’s classic work”
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) October 24, 2011
In 2009, readers gobbled up the New York Times and international best seller 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' faster than zombies eat brains. Now Quirk Books, in partnership with PadWorx Studios, breathes new life into its monster mash-up book thanks to an original app that takes readers into an animated and interactive world where bloody fingerprints and undead horror invade their mobile devices. 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Interactive eBook' is the definitive, user-driven ebook experience available on tablet PCs and in the Apple App Store. The application—which features hundreds of pages of illustrated interactive zombie mayhem, original music, sound effects, and more—is regularly priced at $8.99 but is available for a limited time launch price of $4.99.

'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Interactive eBook' is the only e-book edition of the best-selling novel and includes the text of both Seth Grahame-Smith’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. From reading pages by candlelight and unsealing letters to playing disturbing nineteenth-century music and witnessing exploding zombie brains, readers interact with the text of Jane Austen’s beloved classic, Seth Grahame-Smith’s inspired retelling, and amazing new graphics to bring the book to life, page after gory page.
“Never before have readers been able to read Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel side by side with Jane Austen’s classic work,” says David Borgenicht, president and publisher of Quirk Books. “Readers will love that they can hold their device one way and it's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, flip it 180 degrees and it's Pride and Prejudice, and flip it 90 degrees and it's both, side by side!”
