A Propensity to Hate the Undead

"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, a Jane Austen parody by Seth Grahame-Smith. It's written in the spirit of Bored of the Rings, which I also enjoyed. But a Jane Austen parody has more going for it: Regency-era England, martial arts-trained Bennet sisters, famed hunter of the "sorry stricken" Fitzwilliam Darcy, a ninja corps and a violent throwdown between Lizzie and Lady Catherine, renowned slayer of the "unmentionables"? What could be more entertaining?!

Oh wait...maybe Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters?!
