Ok, I know. It’s Pride and Prejudice. It’s like when we read Hamlet and I was all, Man, this is GOOD! I mean, I know it’s Shakespeare and it’s supposed to be good, but THIS is blowing my mind.
P&P blew my mind…mostly in how hard I laughed. Did you not laugh? Tell me you laughed. Tell me that every time Mr Bennet opened his mouth, you were LOLing your AO.
And before I read this, when the Mr Darcy/Mr Rochester debate came up I was always flying the Dark and Brooding flag (as opposed to the…reserved and somewhat misunderstood flag?). But Mr Darcy is SO MUCH Bridget Jones’ Mark Darcy (and yes, I know that this was intentional), and I love Mark Darcy. DO YOU HEAR ME, COLIN FIRTH? I LOVE YOU IN ALL YOUR DARCY MANIFESTATIONS!!!!
So now I am torn (about the Darcy/Rochester duel for my heart, not about P&P. P&P was stellar).
And I know I’m the last one to jump on this bandwagon, but I am one of the FIRST to ride the ‘and Zombies’ train into town. How so? Because Pride and Prejudice and Zombies just came out yesterday/doesn’t come out until the middle of the month, depending on who you ask. But the word on the street is that a few stores goofed and got a few of theirs out early, and a few people bought them, and one of those people was Erin, who darted home and started up a blog JUST SO THAT SHE COULD REVIEW P&P&Z BEFORE IT CAME OUT!!!! You should go over and say hi.
ANYway, Erin emailed me all, I got this book early! You want I should read it quick and then send it to you in the mail so that YOU can read it early? And because I am not a zombie, I said yes.
HOW JUVENILE! BUT SUBTLE! BUT A BALLS-JOKE!! BUT IN A LITERARY CLASSIC!!!
