Pride & Prejudice & Zombies.

October 2, 2009

So i made my visit to Barnes & Noble yesterday,
I even skipped class because I was so excited to take all of you up on your suggestions...


and then i saw this:
"pride and prejudice and zombies."

as heaston would say, "what is going on..?"

K. It's weird. But I must admit, I am kind of intrigued at the same time and I kind of want to see what it's all about...In fact, yesterday at the bookstore I opened up Pride & Prejudice & Zombies for a moment and read over this oh-so familiar opening line:
“It is a truth universally acknowledged....
That a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.”

Apparently, the novel uses about 85 percent of Austen’s own words.

has anyone heard of this?
better yet - has anyone read over them?
it might be a fun halloween read,
and i'm kind-of dying to find out what it's all about.

no pun intended.
at least not really.

Barnes and Noble! I've skipped class to read there too ha! Maybe we'll run into each other one of these days. As for zombies...I saw this book over the summer and I still don't know how I feel about it! It is a tempting Halloween read though; I may just do that. Tell me what you think, mmk?

p.s. I got my tights at Nordstrom. They had so many great colors and textures! I saw some good stuff at Gap as well.

My roommate bought this book and I'll have to check with her to see if she has read it yet. You will have to let me know what you think as well, hope you enjoy your weekend!

Haha I have seen this book. Jane Austen is probably rolling in her grave.

Ew, the Seamonster's clip is awful. Yet, intriguing. Maybe we could read it as a little guilty-pleasure..just this once!

Hi! I am Lauren. Love your blog :)

Anyway, I have heard mixed reviews. Either people LOVE them, or HATE them. I am thinking I will read the zombie one and see if I like it. Let us know what you think!

I read the book. I would have to say it was just ok. My husband is not a reader, but I am. So he is always finding books that he is interested in and getting me to read them. Goofy boy. Mostly it just left me sort of confused about the real actual Pride & Prejudice book. I wanted to read the classic version again just to clean my slate- if that even makes sense. So my opnion is, read it if you want, but you will just crave the real thing when you are finished.

Ugh, I think it's horrid. And I bet Jane Austen wouldn't be keen on it either!!!
