Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Oh My!

Robin has been eagerly awaiting the book Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith. He bought it on Amazon and it arrived in the mail yesterday. He's busy with a stack of library books, and noticed the drool hanging from the corners of my mouth, so my sweetheart took pity on me. Just started reading it - so excited!!!

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith, Copyright 2009 by Quirk Productions, Inc.

From the back cover: "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."

Illustration of Elizabeth Bennett's response to Darcy's first declaration of love: "One of her kicks found its mark, and Darcy was sent into the mantelpiece with such force as to shatter its edge."

From A Reader's Discussion Guide: "Some critics have suggested that the zombies represent the authors' views toward marriage - an endless curse that sucks the life out of you and just won't die. Do you agree, or do you have another opinion about the symbolism of the unmentionables?
