A Little Light Reading

Gentle Reader,
If you have a delicate constitution, don't read today's post.
Let me preface this by saying I LOVE all things Jane Austen--the BBC Version of
PRIDE AND PREJUDICE is the only movie that I can stay awake for (my kids find this unbelievable--and a travesty). I have savored her books and every movie based on her books that I can get my hands on--not all worth the time and effort yet hope springs eternal.
But...if you have a boy (or maybe a girl) who is a reluctant reader, this might be for you:

Editorial Reviews
Product 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.
