P&P and zombies

上飞机之前正好看见书摊上摆着这本书,想起 Helen 提起过,于是拾起来翻了翻,第一句就是:

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.

(傲慢与偏见的原文是 It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.)

的确是一本 clever 且幽默的书。 Bennett 爸爸教给 Lizzy 和姐妹们的五角死阵 (the Pentagon of Death,好像是)杀 zombie 所向披靡,而 Mr. Darcy 的优越社会地位也来自他的剑术与火枪技巧高超,杀 zombie 名声远扬。书挺短的,有空借来看看。

过去曾经参加过一个书店的读书组,里面有俩小孩儿,所以对新潮流很通,介绍过一本幽默书 Zombie Survival Guide ,让我深感代沟。毕竟不是看着 George Romero, John Carpenter, Sam Raimi 电影长大的。
