More Austen Mash-ups Expected.
Apparently, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies just wasn't enough for fans of the new "mash-up" genre - more adaptations are on the way. As a major Austen fan, I'll be taking a pass on these. I did try to read P&P&Z, but couldn't make it past the first dance sequence - reminds me a bit too much of adolescent gore-mongering. I wasn't into it then, either. Though, perhaps there is a silver lining in that people who might not otherwise have read Austen now are - ? Does this count as reading Austen? Better than Cliff Notes, at least?
