Now for Something Completely Different Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
Best Cover Ever!
I just got this book yesterday. I'm up to Chapter 9. The chapters are fairly short though. So far I like what I'm reading. I'm going to have to reread the original after I'm done. So far there have been quite a few zombie attacks and I like the descriptions. The mother is just as annoying in this version as well. It did get me thinking about what other old books could use this kind of mash up.
Jane Eyre and Werewolves, It makes a kind of sense when you think about it. His wife wasn't just a nut case she was also a werewolf. At the very end Rochester becomes a werewolf as well.
Great Expectations of Vampires. To be honest, I've never read Great Expectations, but I think it would work.
Moby Dick and Star Trek, It's happened.
Anyways, I do recommend this book.
