I just picked up this book today, written by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith and it is absolutely hysterical. Here's the opening 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."

I was hooked immediately. :love: It promises me "romance, heartbreak, swordfights, cannibalism and thousands of rotting corpses." Anyone else reading it?

I've wanted to read it ever since I first heard about it on NPR but I haven't found it yet.

:love:

That sounds funny and interesting! What's the name of the book? (Or is it the thread title?)

Sounds interesting. :D

Here's the Amazon page for it. Figured I might as well post it since I went there to check it out.


Also, I see that someone else went with Arrested Development sig pic theme. Wohoo! :P

My Literature and Sexualities lecturer recommended it...

Then again, he thinks dirty stockings symbolise the vagina.

I'm currently reading it, it's a fairly fast read as I have read P&P before, but additions are frakin brilliant. I have been laughing out loud more than one time, even to the point my kids are like :roll: I keep telling them they need to read it. It's hilarious!

I got the notice from the library yesterday morning and begged Freddy to let us stop by so I could pick it up before we left for Cleveland. So I started reading it last night! :)
