I really am lost for words. One website suggest putting this book on your list of things that are unbelievably awesome. I suggest that for, "awesome" you read, "shite".

Just when I thought nothing could make Edwardian snobbery interesting. I was wrong! If it's brains Zombies crave, I guess Miss Austen's heroines will satiate them?

Anna Russell said...

As long as the don't make Mr Darcy any less swoon-worthy than Colin Firth, it's alright with me.

Now, excuse me, I'm off to read Zom Bieote (geddit?)

Sir B - You do know that every time you say "awesome", God strangles a kitten? FACT.

I think "shite" is OK.

Laura - Braaaaaaains!

Anna - Here is a picture of Sancho Panza listening to his master. You couldn't make it up.

Mr Farty:

I did not know that! That's awesome!

Welsh Girl said...

It's nice to see zombies finally making it into the mainstream without the usual disguises. I'm fairly certain that a lot of chick lit authors are actually zombies, they've just never come out officially though it is obvious to the rest of us that they are brain dead.

IBM - You missed one: Two Zombies of Verona

Taffeta - They're what dead? Oh, BRAAAAIIINNNSSS!!!

Sew - You've been thinking about this. With your braaaaaiins!

Guess what group is coming to Scotchland in April? Yes they are!!!

Lesley said...

Oh dear god: My Zombie-obsessed friend Chris will read EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE, thankyouverymuch.

Mr Farty said...

Lesley - You have been away for a while, haven't you?

On reflection, Gone With The Zombies should probly be called Groan With The Wind.
