It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen only published four books in her lifetime, and two posthumously. As such, there is a faction of zealots who will read any hacks version of certain of her novels. Pride and Prejudice is the most loved Austen novel, and therefore the most often butchered. I know this, because I too have a tendency to read these lame variations of her books.
As Jane Austen spins in her grave, her fans around the world, myself included, are feeling the anticipation build as the most popular book that bastardized “Pride and Prejudice” prepares to hit the big screen in February.
This movie version of the book that sold over 700,000 copies, “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” is striking fear in the hearts of Janeites not for the reason one would assume, but rather the fear is that of being disappointed. The general sentiment seems to be: “I really hope it doesn’t suck, because I have to see it.”
Well fans, if you read the Zombie book…through to the end, you know as well as I do that it is going to suck, but I’ll see you in the theater anyway.
