Pride and Prejudice and Zombies ~ Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith

Of late, I had been hearing about and seeing this book pop up often.  The cover alone caught my eye every time I saw it at Chapters, and caused a snicker to bequeath itself every time out my nose.

Pretty much Kim and I needed to spend more money to get free shipping, and this bad boy was on sale with our iRewards for like $10 so BOOYA just went on ahead and ordered.  I was trying to put this off and read my Stieg Larsson duitully, but you come to a point in life where you just throw caution to the wind and give into that siren that has been luring you acrross the foggy water for so long.

Hoh boy, am I glad I did.  This book is genius.  It takes Jane Austen’s literary classic, and in between Jane’s eloquent words and inept story line, throws in zombies and guns and marshal arts.  I’m going to keep reading, just to see what happens in this version, but I can already fully declare that I smell a win.
