Book Love

Look what Steve bought me today!  He is so thoughtful...
It's called, "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" and includes such tantalising lines such as these:
(a conversation between Lady Catherine de Bourgh and Elizabeth Bennett) 
"Mr Collins tells me you are schooled in the deadly arts, Miss Bennett".   
"I am, though not to half the level of proficiency your Ladyship has attained" (gasp!)
"Oh!  Then - some time or other I shall be happy to see you spar with one of my ninjas.  Are your sisters likewise trained?"
Anyway, by a quick flick through the pages, which include gruesome etchings of monsters, I think this is going to be a bit of a laugh & I can almost hear Jane Austen spinning in her grave! I am exhausted tonight so must hit the sack. Cheerio!
