Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

From the NY Times Paper Cuts blog: "Like a DVD loaded with extras, the book includes the original text of the Regency classic juiced up with 'all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem.'"

Aparently the opening line is "It's a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possesion of brains must be in want of more brains."

I haven't read Pride and Prejudice, but I'm still not sure how I feel about this new "reworking" of the classic book. Thoughts?

I have read the original, it is truly a classic. The story is a total chick flick, chock full of everything that inspired every stereotype about women.

That said, I love a good zombie makeover and am quite curious to see what could be done with this idea.

I'd read it. Rather, I'll read in 2010. I'm serious about the female author thing and this zombie concept is by someone called "Seth". I need to make a "for 2010" list.
