What if Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice was told from a cat’s point of view? On the heels of smash hits like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and I Can Has Cheezburger, this hilarious mash-up by children’s author Pamela Jane and photographer Deborah Guyol spins a fresh, quirky take on two of the things we just can’t get enough of: classic cats and classic Jane.
Pride and Prejudice and Kitties juxtaposes wacky photos of cats with the wicked humor of Jane Austen, and it’s just in time for the 200-year anniversary of the publication of the original Pride and Prejudice. Soulful Mr. Darcy gazes at Elizabeth Bennet in fascination; hysterical Mrs. Bennet yowls that no one understands her; somnolent Mr. Hurst passes out on the sofa after dinner; arrogant Lady Catherine hisses at Elizabeth. Each photo includes a hilarious caption that goes along with the text of Pride and Prejudice, told from a feline perspective.
Pride and Prejudice and Kitties is a book for cat-lovers, Austen-lovers, and people who love to laugh—in other words, just about everyone. The adorable meets the absurd!
"Sejak awal, perangaimu, keangkuhanmu, sikap acuh tak acuhmu, jadi landasan kebencianku padamu. Belum sebulan mengenalmu, aku sudah tahu bahwa kau adalah pria yang takkan mungkin kunikahi."
Di mata Elizabeth, Mr. Darcy tidak pernah menjadi sosok yang memesona. Baginya, laki-laki itu angkuh, sombong, dan menyebalkan. Elizabeth membenci tatapannya yang merendahkan, cara bicaranya yang meremehkan, dan segala hal tentang bangsawan kaya raya itu. Kebencian itu semakin bertambah ketika Elizabeth tahu bahwa Mr. Darcy telah melakukan hal yang menurutnya tak bisa dimaafkan.ÿ
Butuh lama bagi Elizabeth untuk memahami sisi lain dari Mr. Darcy dan menerima kenyataan akan kebaikannya yang tersembunyi. Dan, ketika akhirnya gadis itu menyadari perasaannya kepada Mr. Darcy telah berkembang menjadi cinta, dia pun jadi ragu, akankah dia bisa menebus prasangkanya yang sangat buruk pada laki-laki itu? Lalu, akankah cintanya yang baru tumbuh itu menjadi sia-sia?
Dalam Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen menuangkan detail yang memikat mengenai kaum menengah ke atas pada abad ke-19. Karakter-karakternya yang memukau, juga narasinya yang cerdas, menjadikan novel ini sebagai salah satu roman terpopuler sepanjang masa.

So begins Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, an expanded edition of the beloved Jane Austen novel featuring all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton—and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she’s soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers—and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield. Can Elizabeth vanquish the spawn of Satan? And overcome the social prejudices of the class-conscious landed gentry? Complete with romance, heartbreak, swordfights, cannibalism, and thousands of rotting corpses, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies transforms a masterpiece of world literature into something you’d actually want to read.
Emma Woodhouse is a privileged young woman whose greatest pleasure in life lies in matchmaking for anyone but herself. Written, by Austen’s own admission, as “a heroine whom no one but myself will much like,” Emma’s charm and wit exist in constant tension with her capacity for selfishness and vanity. Despite her intelligence, Emma stumbles from one catastrophe to the next—from a misguided attempt at securing a husband for her friend Harriet Smith to her disastrous meddling in the affairs of new arrivals Frank Churchill and Jane Fairfax—before ultimately falling into her own unexpected happy ending.
Both a discerning look at the strictures of Regency England and an enchanting comedy of errors, Emma remains a classic two centuries since it was first published.
This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
Beautiful, smart, rich-and single-Emma Woodhouse is perfectly content with her life and sees no need for either love or marriage. Nothing, however, delights her more than interfering in the romantic lives of others. But when she ignores the warnings of her good friend Mr. Knightley and attempts to arrange a suitable match for her protegée, Harriet Smith, her carefully laid plans soon unravel and have consequences that she never expected.
