Pride & Prejudice… & ZOMBIES?!?1

Can it be? Has my favorite novel of all time been cannibalized from the frontal lobe down?!

pandpandz“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.”

Really? REALLY?!? I can’t decide whether to rush out and buy it immediately, or start my angry letter to the presumptuous, supposed co-author now, before even cracking the spine…

Here’s what amazon.com says about the “novel“...
…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 as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead. Can she 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.
[what? WHAT?!]

And about the author(s)…
Seth Grahame-Smith once took a class in English literature. He lives in Los Angeles.
Jane Austen is the author of Sense and Sensibility, Persuasion, Mansfield Park, and other masterpieces of English literature.

Oh jeez. Oh man. Even if it’s terribly, horribly — and not even in a fantastic camp way– just plain awful and sick and wrong and BAD…. even then…. this is just too good.

I must buy it now.
