Below is a link to a very interesting article regarding Jane Austen and the various incarnations of her novel that are being published. One is titled “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies”, which begins with “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.”
I’m probably going to be drawn and quartered, tarred and feathered and boiled in oil for saying this but I’ve tried several times to read “Pride and Prejudice” but I can never get past the first chapter. I’ve seen all the movie versions of the book and enjoyed them but reading the book? Nope, I just couldn’t do it.
I did read “Emma” for a graduate course I took and I actually liked that book. But that was quite some time ago.
Maybe having a couple of zombies shuffling around Regency England might not be such a bad idea.
