Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith
Seen in the univ bookstore when I stopped over there yesterday. (I saw a real paperback book, not the Kindle version...but Amazon seems to be a little sleepish today.)
I did not buy it; I'm not amused by zombies. But my son, who will be 20 on Saturday, IS. Do you suppose this book would be any good if you hadn't read P&P? Which I feel confident that he has not...
It begins thus:
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains. Never was this truth more plain than during the recent attacks at Netherfield Park, in which a household of eighteen was slaughtered and consumed by a horde of the living dead.
Who do you suppose makes up this stuff? or, said a nicer way,
O, brave new world, that has such people in't!
