Always a sucker for a good zombie story, I’ve been reading Pride & Prejudice & Zombies lately. After reading this, and considering my stance on chick lit, I have come to realize that I can actually stomach chick lit IF it has a healthy dose of zombies.
Since I have read Pride and Prejudice before (in college), and I found it incredibly boring, I can only assume the only reason why it is palatable now is because the Bennet sisters have become zombie killing machines whose sole purpose in life, aside from finding a handsome, effete English gentlemen to wed, is killing zombies in great numbers.
I understand that there is a whole series of these “classic” literature pieces getting the monster treatment. There is also a Sense & Sensibility & Seamonsters addition to the canon.
I think if more women writers would just understand that they could double the readership of their slack jawed romantic musings simply by adding a carnivorous beast hellbent on killing and maiming the main characters, all chick lit would actually be much worthier of attention.

Haha! Interesting! What is it with you (and Frank) and Zombies?
Zombies are awesome. While I would love to explain it and convert you, either you get it or you don’t. It is a sociological test that must be passed to be accepted into the fraternity of cool. If you don’t understand it, you can never get in. Sorry.
ah.. so it’s one of those *cool nerd* things!
