Sneak peak!

Coming tomorrow!!

(or whenever I have a good enough hair day to take pictures...)


Has anyone read "Pride & Prejudice & Zombies" ???

I just got it and will be posting a review later on :) But I guess I'm a bit wary of it ... not that I'm a big Austenphile .... but it just seems sketchy.

Notice how it's by Seth Grahame - Smith AND Jane Austen?? Whhhaaaaat....?

Sounds like a bit of a rip-off ... like some dude basically plugged in zombie scenes to the original?

I dunno.... thoughts?

My husband is reading it. He said that he wants to be able to discuss literature with me and since Pride and Prejudice is a favorite he wanted to read that, but of course, wanted to keep it interesting, thus the zombie version.
I heard it was actually the Smith's dissertation (?) I don't know if that's true or not, but if it was I'm sure he turned some heads.

zombie scenes and ninja fighting are thrown in. the story is reworked to make more sense with the new storyline

Yeah, it's done in a very Austen-esque style. My fave moment was the girls' "Pentagram of Death" :-)

Yeahh....It made me mad sometimes cause I'm such an Austen lover, but really it was pretty good. Especially when you've read P&P like a dozen times, there are a couple 'inside jokes' only hard core fans can get.
