Book of the Month club

Post by DougallStrange » Fri Aug 14, 2009 11:34 am

I wasn't sure where to post this, but I just finished this book and thought that the other members of the drabblecast (Nation? Community? Army? Middlemen?), would enjoy it and so I present my suggestion for the first Drabblecast book of the Month... Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahme-Smith

I'm appalled at the shameless self-promotion.

P.S. Read My Drabbles!!!

Now that I've got that outta my system, congrats on getting the book out there.

Title and blurbs were quite amusing. :D

Thank you for thinking I could write this well but I just finished reading it and thought my fellow drabblecast fans could enjoy it

Wrote it, read it: It's pretty much the same thing, isn't it?

There is also a new book in the "&" series, just out: Sense & Sensibility & Sea Monsters.[/i]

LOL, oops (wipes egg off face)

Hey, it's not inconceivable, after all, there a few published authors lurking around here...

I have just started "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies", I will let you know if it has overcome my inherent antipathy to Jane Austin (stemming from an unfortunate incident in which some berk in a volvo dinged by car in the car park of her house, grrr).

Done. That was a fun book. Jane Austen was more blood-thirsty than I expected.

Zombies aside this is really just the story of five sisters who love big balls.

Time to cue up some vintage AC/DC.

this book made me happy how many other books have ninjas and zombies in them.

I liked it overall, but felt that the romance subplot was too forced. What's wrong with just midlessly killing zombies?
