ok, so I haven't read my copy yet, but I think it would be a great theme for a swap.  We could even have it be open to any Jane Austen book , like Persuasion & Zombies, or Like Emma and Vampires or something.  The whole Gothic Novel thing.

Potential books:
http://www.amazon.com/Pride-Prejudice-Zombies-Classic-Ultraviolent/dp/1594743347/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1251434439&sr=8-6
http://www.amazon.com/Sense-Sensibility-Monsters-Jane-Austen/dp/1594744424/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1251434323&sr=8-1
http://www.amazon.com/Mr-Darcy-Vampyre-Amanda-Grange/dp/1402236972/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1251434439&sr=8-2

"I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by."  Douglas Adams

Debbies only get respect in the knitting world.  How unfair is that?

Because Poe wrote on both of them.

Anyone up for a Jasper Fforde swap?

Eehhh, I'd rather just do a Jane Austen swap. I'd be up for that.

A friend at work is currently reading it.  I took a look during lunch and think this would be so awesome!  The Bennett sisters are essentially zombie slayers.  I'm a big Austen fan and wasn't so sure about it.  But who doesn't love a zombie or two?

I read P&P&Z with a few friends, and we all loved it! It was delightfully ridiculous, essentially retains the same dialogue and plot but with zombies inserted, and I've decided that one of the names given to the zombies(the wanky dreadfuls) would make the best band name ever. I would totally participate in this swap.

This has been sitting on my coffee table for awhile--I'm dying to start it, but haven't had time.  I do imagine there could be some very creative craft-possibilities out there... I'll check in here again!

I lolled at this because one of my friends had just been telling me about this book. I love Jane Austen but from the sound of it this books quite funny - though my friede who hasn't read P&P was surprised when she found out that Mr collins didn't hang himself and Elizabeth didn't reject Mr Darcy with a kick in ass - lol!

Dear sweet zombies, yes! This is easily my favourite book of the year, I'd love to open the mail and find my own wanky dreadful (seriously, that is the best name ever! I really hope you can play *any* musical instrument, and start that band real soon!)

It's totally the most awesome book I have read in a long time. What if this was a Jane Austen meets gothic-horror type swap. Somehow, the regency and zombies/violence just go hand in hand...
