WHY - part 2!!!!!!

If you remember my first anguished post was about Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I did buy the book and even enjoyed it. Though that was because of the novelty of the idea and hey, zombies are kinda cute!!

But, apparently the Jane Austen canon is not to be left in peace. We now have .... wait for it ...

Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters!!!!!

That's IT!! I'm not going to read anymore of these books, much less spend any of my hard earned money on them.

If you want more WTH moments, go to Amazon and type the sense and sensibility title above and take a peek at the second book in the list. The title includes Mr. Darcy and Vampyre ......

ha ha ha.... c'mon. you know you cannot resist such books. And it has Vympara in it too :D

Did you watch a movie starring Johnny Depp that was a tribute to badly made scary movies? It was quite funny.

My my ! Marianne Dashwood with sea monsters? There wasnt any navy person in it. They could have used Persuasion.

Ohhhh how I love Jane Austen, and hate any mutilation of her work.

I didnt even like Mansfield Park starring Frances OConner, because it had some chalu dialogues.
