Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Book coverNow at #13 on the Amazon.com bestseller list, the classic Jane Austen novel seems to be making a comeback.  Its new title is: “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance – Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!”

From the readers’ discussion guide, courtesy the NY Times article:

“Some scholars believe that the zombies were a last-minute addition to the novel, requested by the publisher in a shameless attempt to boost sales. Others argue that the hordes of living dead are integral to Jane Austen’s plot and social commentary. What do you think?”

Well, I think that this is probably the best thing to happen to the publishing industry since the Ugly Duckling Presse.  I am particularly excited for “The Odyssey: The Classic Homeric Epic – Now with Fucking Zombies!”

    Ah, so voicing one’s opinion, and one that is apparently echoed by others is trolling? In my experience, trolling consists more of repeating one’s statements redundantly, i.e. “troll troll troll troll” as well as using vindictive language like “shut up”

    I don’t think the story is that this exists, I think it’s that it’s in the top 15 on the Amazon bestseller list.

    I concur. I feel like i heard about this three months ago, if not more. Same with that worthless Asher Roth post. Please, keep the posts relevant and up to date. These “look what i found” posts are rather dull, and they make the poster seem foolish when the topic is not even a novel one.

    jane austen? pride and prejudice? me thinks it has to do with college –
    stupid commentators have to realize that wesleyan had many majors – hence wesleying has a huge array of topics it can cover, that are all “focused on [at least a part of] Wesleyan”
    P&P has been assigned oh… just about 5 different times since my freshman year.
    I think wesleying is justified in posting “things” (and “funny things”) that have to do (remotely or not) with academia.

    What’s the purpose of this post? I know Wesleying doesn’t have a mission statement, but it should really be focused on Wesleyan. I understand you want to share funny things you found on the internet to everyone, but there are 100 other sites that do it better because it’s their purpose. All this does it bump Wesleyan-related posts down and off the front page.

    this is cool, but, like, every time a wesleying blogger posts something pretty cool and not wes-related, I think to myself, I saw this on boingboing last month. so for everyone who reads any of the basic cool-shit blogs these posts might just be annoying – how is this relevant to wesleying? let’s get it together. nothing personal jacon.
