Jane Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice just marked its 200th anniversary, what better way to celebrate than mention that "other" classic, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies?
When this whole "mash-up" thing with classic literature began, I admit thinking it was funny, but I wasn't too interested at first. Okay, I'm slow. I now have a copy of the aforementioned book in hand and seeing the great illustrations and funny lines, I wonder why I waited so long?
So, England is overrun with zombies and the genteel ladies are fighting off zombie hordes? haaa! The cover, of course, has long been a favorite.
Adding in a mention for Two Sentence Tuesday, how can you resist these lines from PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith:
Line under one illustration:
"Elizabeth lifted her skirt, disregarding modesty, and delivered a swift kick to the creature's head."
Another great illustration and line:
"The wedding took place, and no one but Elizabeth seemed to suspect the bride's condition."
