Is There Anything Zombies Won't Improve?

Turns out, the answer is probably "no". Thanks to the BBC, I just learned about a new book: "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies". Finally, an English literature classic I can relate to. Never did get on with all that irony, social commentary and long, boring, mannered prose Austen was perennially fond of. How better, then, to make it more accessible than to add zombies to the mix? Brilliant.

Here's the opening line ...

"It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains."

I mean, it doesn't get much better than that, eh?
