Teaser Tuesdays (6) - Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme that was started by MizB from Should Be Reading.

If you would like to participate in Teaser Tuesday, all you have to do is take the book that you are currently reading and open it to any page. Then you choose any two (2) sentences from that page to share with the rest of us!

This week’s teaser comes from page 130 of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith. Did you know this is slated to become a movie as well?


"Elizabeth drew her Katana and shielded herself from the first three flying weapons, then snatched the fourth out of the air and threw it back at its originator-striking him in the thigh. The ninja cried out and grabbed the wound with both hands, and Elizabeth brought her blade down, taking off not only the hands, but the leg which they held firmly."

  4. Gruesome. I have a hard time visualizing Elizabeth doing this. So much more likely to stab with a hat pin.

  20. How are you liking P & P & Zombies so far? I love Jane Austen, enjoy zombies, and thought the concept was clever, but I had a hard time with the way it was written. I think I would have liked it much more if Seth had not used quite so much of the actual text from the original novel, but had written it more like a zombie-filled fanfic. I look forward to reading your reviews.

    Our teaser is from The Rise of Renegade X this week.

  23. You got a smile out of me with this one. I'm picturing Lizzie Bennett doing all that and find it amusing. Thanks for sharing!

  24. Thanks for dropping by my blog. I don't feel like I can read this since I never read the original, but maybe it would be like killing two birds with one..Zombie. Sorry. :)

    If you are an armchair traveller, I have tons of pics on my blog from recent travels. I currently live in S. Korea and spent a weekend in Taiwan a few weeks ago that allowed for some great photo opportunities.
