What’s Mimsy Reading?

I haven’t started it yet, but I just checked out Pride and Prejudice and Zombies from the library. I’ve heard it’s supposed to be a mashup of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice with a zombie story. Well, duh, obviously; you can tell by the cover. An interesting concept…or maybe just silly? We’ll see. This isn’t the type of book that I’d normally be interested in reading — a monster story, that is — but as a die-hard Austen fan I’m curious. (I’ve also read online that Natalie Portman will be playing Elizabeth Bennett in the film version of this novel. Hmm.)
