Today while I was on www.ew.com I saw a short article on a much anticipated book coming out in the spring. I know I blog about books a lot, and it may be annoying, but when you read 7 of them a month, what else do you expect?
Pride & Prejudice & Zombies! I know what you are thinking. What the??? But when I saw the cover of this book I know I HAVE to read it!! The cover just made me laugh, there was something about it that I just loved. I know, call me weird and morbid. (See what Wuthering Heights did to me?) Here’s what piqued my interest . . . it’s still the original writing with the interjection of the “unmentionables” which is what they are calling the zombies because it’s still going to be written in the ‘old world’ style and zombies would have been a curse word back then. But I LOVED all 6 hours of P&P on DVD done by the BBC. HA! That was a cool little rhyme. I haven’t actually read P&P and I’m planning on it since I’m on this quest to read classics. P&P&Z doesn’t come out until May so that will give me plenty of time to read Jane Austen’s untouched version before the zombie rebellion takes over.
