Well, this week has been the SF-ification of Pride and Prejudice, it seems. First, I watched LOST IN AUSTEN, which has the cute premise of sending a modern-day gal obsessed with P&P right into P&P Land. Plot mayhem ensues as her presence, and Lizzie's absence, cause things to go way off the canon. Will the 21st century gal be able to love a Regency male? Rent it and find out. I got it from Netflix. It's enjoyable, although the latter third sort of gets slightly wearying. The ending works nicely. And the guy who plays Mr. Darcy does a decent job, too. He's no Colin Firth in the role, but who is?
"It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains."
Today, I came across a featured book at the Sony Reader bookstore: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance - Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem! by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith. That one is just begging for a Monster by Mail treatment, doncha think?
You can read the opening pages at amazon.
