Amazon.com has my number

I majored in English Literature in college.  Considering I work with computers for a living, that usually surprises people.  Nevertheless, I remain a voracious reader, devouring an eclectic mix of genres, including everything from literary classics to comic books to science fiction & fantasy.

PnPnZSo I shouldn't have been surprised to see Amazon.com recommended Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.   Well, perhaps I shouldn't have, but I was.  Mostly because it is hard for me to imagine this book even existing.

Self-described as "The Classic Regency Romance - Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!", author Seth Grahame-Smith is attempting to seamlessly integrate the original text of Jane Austin's classic with brand new scenes involving the living dead.

I wish him the best of luck.  Pride and Prejudice was never a favorite of mine, probably because it could be summed up as "SWF ISO SWM ~ £10,000".  So I can see where a bit of zombie action could only help!

I can only assume that Amazon.com has gained a frightening insight into my mind from my various purchases over the years.  Or maybe they recommended it because I have Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog on my Amazon Wishlist?  You decide!

As one reviewer I saw said "I wonder what Jane might say about this. Of course if we could ask her she would probably just say brains.... BRAINS...."
