*snicker* It's here!
What could be better? The perfect novel combined with zombies...NIRVANA!!! Lest anyone jerk my English Degree bona fides I adore Jane Austen and have read all of her novels numerous times and have dissected and discussed her imagery ad nauseum. Some of my best writing revolved around my girl Jane. The only thing I adore more, however, is satire and, let's face it, liberal arts students (and graduates) have a tendency to take themselves a trifle too seriously. What better antidote to those clove smoking, espresso swilling elitists than taking a literary masterpiece and injecting it with brain eating zombies? "...Mrs. Long struggled to free herself as two female dreadfuls bit into her head, cracking her skull like a walnut...." I never did like Mrs. Long and this seems a fitting end. I'm hoping for some more of the same for Wickham, Lady DeBourgh and that little brat Lydia if you must know the truth. I'll let you know how it ends. Read on!
