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.
So 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!
