“You should like balls infinitely better,” said Darcy, “if you knew the first thing about them.”
-Mr. Darcy, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
You can do a lot in a week. You can lose weight on the SlimFast diet plan. You can create the heavens and the Earth. You can also read our Summer FBOTU Book Club selection: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith. Of all the things you could conceivably do in a week, the latter will probably be the most fun.
I know, between zombies and Jane Austen, Jane scares you more. Don’t be intimidated! All you need to know about that era is that all social interactions were strictly dictated by the norms of the time. Sons were considered valuable heirs, and daughters were burdens who must be married away as soon as possible. Love was usually secondary to a practical or advantageous match. Women who yearned for choices and independence were considered insolent and dangerous. Now…throw zombies into all that, and you’ve got a party.
Discussion begins Friday, July 10 in the Books Forum. Don’t miss out! Start reading (or keep reading) today! Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is available for $7.77 at Amazon, or wherever books about balls and zombies are sold. It’s the perfect reading for a summer holiday weekend!
