Jane Austen: now with 100% more tentacles

I'm still not thrilled by the [Jane Austen novel] + [random monster] formula*, but I have to give Quirk Classics credit: this is the best-quality book trailer I've ever seen.

*Seriously, choose a different author--one whose books actually needed improvement. Imagine how much better, say, a D. H. Lawrence novel would be with some zombies in it!

Ah ha ha! That was delightful. I particularly liked when the conversational transition from Jane Austen to silly horror... as the woman loses her temper in while still speaking in Jane Austen narrative.

Her books don't need such "enhancement," but that was quite fun.

Yeah, I have to admit it--it was pretty funny.

Actually, S&S is my least favorite Austen, so if they HAD to stick in a sea monster somewhere, I suppose it could have been worse....
