It is time to play Fun and Games with Jenners again! This game is a bit challenging so I’ll give you all week to work on it — or longer if you feel you need more time. I don’t even have mine ready, but I’ll tell you what inspired this particular game.
Have you heard about the new book called Pride and Prejudice and Zombies? The subtitle is “The Classic Regency Romance — Now With Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!” (I swear, I am not making this up. Click on the link and you’ll see.) The book description from Amazon reads:
“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.” So begins Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, an expanded edition of the beloved Jane Austen novel featuring all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton—and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she’s soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers—and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead. Can she vanquish the spawn of Satan? And overcome the social prejudices of the class-conscious landed gentry? Complete with romance, heartbreak, swordfights, cannibalism, and thousands of rotting corpses, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies transforms a masterpiece of world literature into something you’d actually want to read.”
So reading about this book got me to thinking about how this would be a great “game” to play here. So here is what you need to do for this one:
Think of two types of books/authors/stories/genres that are wildly different. Then come up with a title of a book that combines the two — along with a sample paragraph or two.
What if Danielle Steele was combined with Dr. Suess?
Or how about the Twilight books written by Charles Dickens?
Or if Stephen King and Augusten Burroughs decided to write a book together?
I know you guys can do it! And I promise to put my tired little brain to work and come up with something myself by Friday. (If I’m not around too much this week, now you’ll know why.) I’ll post Mr. Linky on Friday and you can hook up your posts any time from Friday through Sunday. On Monday, I’ll highlight what you all come up with. I know this one might be hard, but I’m confident you are up to the task! I so cannot wait to see what you come up with. Good luck!
