Jane Austen’s works have recently come out of copyright, allowing anyone to republish the texts. Some have been a little more innovative. There’s a new film, Pride and Predator, expected to come out in 2010, and, of course, the mash-up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Austen’s original classic interspersed with martial arts and zombie mayhem by Seth Grahame-Smith.
While I’ve read some Jane Austen before, I hadn’t read Pride and Prejudice. I corrected this, then proceeded to read one of the silliest books I’ve ever read.
