when zombies go awesome


dear valentine,

i am a huge nerd. i love to read, watch, and dream sci fi / fantasy. but like nearly every woman in america, i also love jane austen, especially her classic pride and prejudice. so when i came across seth grahame-smith's "pride and prejudice and zombies" i nearly jizzed my pants. its like he wrote it just for me.

here's an excerpt to satisfy your zombie craving until you too can go out and pick up a copy:

"It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains. Never was this truth more plain than during the recent attacks at Netherfield Park, in which a household of eighteen was slaughtered and consumed by a horde of the living dead"

f__k yeah!!!! now thats how its done jane austen, charlotte bronte and louisa may alcott. hope you are taking notes.

big shout out to the evil genius who conceived this brilliant literary spawn from hell.
