Behold, I bring you Pride and Prejudice and Zombies!

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith
It’s Friday! We all need a little more fun! A few more exclamation points thrown into our sentences! And a book about regency England! And zombies! The cover alone is enough to entice you to read the book, is it not? No?! Well then let me quote to you from the first paragraph:
"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."

Oh come on. It’s funny! And there are illustrations! Elizabeth Bennet kicking major zombie butt! I can’t think of a more delightful premise. I was lucky enough to score an advanced reader’s copy, then realized the book has been out for a month now. But we are getting it in soon—promise! But for now just enjoy the fact that there is enough creativity in the world for someone to come up with this idea for a book. Way to go, Mr. Grahame-Smith! You just gave me one more thing to giggle about.
