Summer Reading: Jane Austen Meets Shaun of the Dead

Last summer, I went thru a Jane Austen phase, reading Pride and Prejudice, Emma, and Sense and Sensibility in a short span. Then I went through a vampire and other ghoulish creatures phase. So, with summer approaching, a mini-revival of the two, albeit a silly one, is in order.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies follows the plot of the classic romance, but with the English countryside beset by legions of the undead. You will be pleased to know that the Bennett girls are master zombie slayers, famed for their "Pentagram of Death" fighting formation as well as for their beauty. I am only a few chapters into the book but I'm hooked. If you love P&P and laughed at Shaun of the Dead, this should be right up your alley, too.

Happy Friday!
