Adding to my Goodreads list ... POST HASTE

Pride, Prejudice & Zombies. Yes, you're reading that right.

As elaborated upon on Salon:

One obvious question, of course, is what would Ms. Austen think of this unconventional adaptation? To this, I turned to Salon book critic and Austen fan Laura Miller, who replied:

"Well, she'd be astonished, of course, since her age was, sadly, as bereft of zombie movies as it was of indoor plumbing. However, I don't doubt that Elizabeth Bennet would adapt quickly to the imperatives of a zombie attack and in time prove one of our ablest leaders in the war against the undead. The real question is: If Mr. Darcy became infected, would Elizabeth have the fortitude to behead him in time?"


Does it get better than that? I think not.

I keep seeing the cover to this one, and JUST. CRACKING. UP. It is SO gross.
