Ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok …. are you ready? You are NOT ready for the mind explosion you are about to have. Brace yourself …..
Pride and Prejudice … and Zombies!!!
“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be want of more brains.”
So. Original P&P = a GIANT snooze fest. What do you do? How do you spice this baby up? Add nudity and sex scenes? Nah, too pedestrian. Think outside the box: you add zombies. Lots of zombies. Hordes if you will.
“As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton—and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she’s soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers—and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead.”
Ok. I need to catch my breath. This little gem is out May 13, 2009 on Quirk books. Reserve your copy now for, you know, the invasion … of zombies.
Also included: illustrations in the style of the original illustrator of P&P.
