Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

2009 April 13

They say that if you like Joseph Heller’s Catch 22 then you will not like Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. I personally have always wondered where this saying came from and if it was related to gender. Assuming the distinction between the books is gender, then I think that my friend has inadvertently given me material for a random blog.
She knows how much I dislike P&P (and how I love Catch 22) and decided to share with me her new discovery… “Seth Grahame-Smith’s zombie mash-up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.” This actually sounds exciting to me and I almost ordered it, except for I am a poor college student so I’ll wait for it.
It has “all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem” where Elizabeth and her sisters kick zombie ass (while Darcy sits back and watches)!
