"It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains." So begins Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, an expanded edition of the beloved Jane Austen novel featuring all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton—and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she's soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers—and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead. Can she vanquish the spawn of Satan? And overcome the social prejudices of the class-conscious landed gentry? Complete with romance, heartbreak, swordfights, cannibalism, and thousands of rotting corpses, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies transforms a masterpiece of world literature into something you'd actually want to read.

Very Unleashable

I briefly skimmed this a few months ago, but picked it up recently anyway. Perhaps I'll delve into it more in a bit--but I doubt it. Update: I briefly skimmed this again this past week. What a waste! Even the discussion questions are riffing on this classic. The bottom line is this: if you love P & P and want to see a modern, unconventional update of it, then this could be a great book for you. If, however, you are like me and do not like seeing the classics tampered with, then this book stinks. Enough said.

Do not Unleash
