2. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen & Seth Grahame-Smith – Sept 9, 2011
Although I’m sure you’ve all at least heard of this book, here’s a little blurb as to what it’s about:
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a 2009 parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith. It is a mashup combining Jane Austen’s classic 1813 novel Pride and Prejudice with elements of modern zombie fiction, crediting Austen as co-author. Grahame-Smith began with the original text of Austen’s novel, adding zombie and ninja elements while developing an overall plot line for the new material.  According to the author, the original text of the novel was well-suited for use as a zombie horror story:You have this fiercely independent heroine, you have this dashing heroic gentleman, you have a militia camped out for seemingly no reason whatsoever nearby, and people are always walking here and there and taking carriage rides here and there . . . It was just ripe for gore and senseless violence. From my perspective anyway.’ ”

My thoughts??  READ THIS BOOK.  It’s so fricken hilarious!
