Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

If you love Jane Austen but also love a good zombie story, you might be interested in the latest project from Chronicle Books: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Hard as it may be to believe, this is a real book scheduled to be released in mid-April. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, written by Seth Grahame-Smith, includes the original text of Austen's Pride and Prejudice "with all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie action." The book will also include 20 illustrations in the style of C. E. Brock (the original illustrator of Pride and Prejudice). Chronicle Books hopes this bizarre collaberation "will introduce Jane Austen's classic novel to new legions of fans." If this sounds interesting to you, you can pre-order the book on Amazon.

I think this book would be a must just for the weirdness factor alone. I hadn't heard of it before, but it sounds very interesting. Thanks for posting this!

I have never liked Jane Austen, but this might actually convince me to suffer through Pride and Prejudice again!
