In truth, I haven’t read a book in years. I often fancy the idea of being a reader, but never put down my magazines or Internet long enough to take the time to read an actual book. Tonight, I am going to start a book that I bought today. The book is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith. If the cover isn’t enough to sell you, I’ll give you the opening sentence of the novel: “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.”
I wonder what Jane Austen’s reaction would be to this book if she were alive today. Especially after seeing Amazon.com’s description of the novel which reads, “The Classic Regency Romance – Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!” (That sold me, too.)
After only reading a single sentence, I love this book already! It could be, quite possibly, a modern masterpiece. Yes, I love zombies that much.
