Re: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Here's something I just heard on All Things Considered:

 

Pride and Predator

I was listening to NPR Sunday and they were making a joke about a book called Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and I thought it sounded hillarious.  I didn't think it was real though until I looked it up today and it's supposed to be released in April.  I can't decided if I'm going to read it or not.

 

It got me thinking though what other classis books could be redone this way to include our favorite monsters?  Could we somehow put vampires into  A Tale of Two Cities or shapeshifters into David Copperfield?

Laurel:

Yeah, it's mind-boggling to think that there are TWO upcoming projects dealing with Jane Austen and whacked out SF/fantasy premises. Here's a link to the Pride and Predator movie, which is being produced by Elton John's production company! I honestly thought this was a joke at first...

What's next- Pride and Vampires? I wouldn't be suprised.

Re: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

"Neckbiter Abbey"  (vampires and Austen)

 

Or possibly "Scents and Sensibility" (werewolves and Austen)

 

 and of course that Dickensian Zombie masterpiece ""Bleak House, 28 Days Later."

You just made me tinkle.... (Not really, I'm just trying out my two-year's ever-growing lexicon.  I really like the word "tinkle" – I'm going to try to use it in a review....

 

Loved Scents and Sensibility, by the way. You're a genius!   :smileyhappy:

Re: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

There is a small piece about this book (and the upcoming movie) in the newest issue of Entertainment Weekly (the one with the Watchmen covers). I have no idea if it is accessible online or not.
