I'm posting this somewhat early this week, because I really need to do some homework. Bah...homework. It's really getting in the way of my life. What can we do though?
So I am super-duper excited for this book. As soon as I heard about it, I knew that it had to be mine. And since there seems to be a whole zombie theme to my blog this week, what with the upcoming release of Zombie Queen of Newbury High by Amanda Ashby; I decided that this was the perfect week for this title.
Here's the description:
"It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains." So begins Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, an expanded edition of the beloved Jane Austen novel featuring all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton-and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she's soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers-and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead. Can she vanquish the spawn of Satan? And overcome the social prejudices of the class-conscious landed gentry? Complete with romance, heartbreak, swordfights, cannibalism, and thousands of rotting corpses, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies transforms a masterpiece of world literature into something you'd actually want to read.
Awesome right?! So my friend Jen from Australia actually sent me an e-mail last week about this book, which just goes to show how similar we are. Although we are thousands of miles apart we both stumbled upon this book and felt the need to share it with one another. Zombies cross many boundaries.
I have to admit that I've never read Pride and Prejudice and probably never would have had they not created a version with zombies, so lucky me. I can't wait...in fact, I so can't wait that I'm going to take this time to let any author or publicist out there know that I would love a copy of this to review for my blog. (Blatant begging)
So, that's all for now, and don't forget the awesome contests going on over at Amanda Ashby's blog for the release of Zombie Queen. It's quite the shindig. http://amandaashby.blogspot.com/
