When I  first read Jane Austen , it was  a little bit of a struggle, but I grew to really enjoy  her books .  I liked the language , the rules, and the glimpse into another time.  ( A time I’m not so sure I’d want to live in). 

 I love Pride and Prejudice.  I’ve read it a number of times.  I’ve seen a number of movie adaptations (the BBC version with Colin Firth is my favorite,but Bride and Prejudice , a bollywood adaptation of the book was pretty good, too. ). I have to admit that I haven’t read any of the prequels/sequels or spin- offs…Until Now. 

I was  given  a copy of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies for my birthday.  Yes, author Seth Grahame-Smith has added ‘ultraviolent zombie  mayhem’ to P&P.  And it is really  funny .  And a little gross.  It is somewhat disconcerting to be reading a very proper comedy of manners and then zombies ( known  as unmentionables in the book ) rudely interrupt the ball.   Happily, Elizabeth and her sisters are very good at dispatching  zombies. 

The First line made the book absolutely  irresistible to  me:

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possesion of brains must be in want of more brains.

I suggest jumping on the waiting list for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. If zombies aren’t your thing, a reread of the original could be nice … and a movie might be nice, too.

So, be prepared and have a happy October.

(Pssst! If you enjoyed this video, you may wish to check out the Zombie Survival Wiki.)
