Mansfield Park and Mummieson April 29, 2010 at 5:00 am
Suck it, Jane Austen fans! Because the desperate jumping on the band wagon of “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” continues with “Mansfield Park and Mummies.”
From the publisher:
Spinsterhood or Mummification!
Ancient Egypt infiltrates Regency England in this elegant, hilarious, witty, insane, and unexpectedly romantic monster parody of Jane Austen’s classic novel.
Our gentle yet indomitable heroine Fanny Price must hold steadfast not only against the seductive charms of Henry Crawford but also an Ancient Egyptian Pharaoh!
Meanwhile, the indubitably handsome and kind hero Edmund attempts Exorcisms… Miss Crawford vamps out… Aunt Norris channels her inner werewolf… The Mummy-mesmerized Lady Bertram collects Egyptian artifacts…
There can be no doubt that Mansfield Park has become a battleground for the forces of Ancient Evil and Regency True Love!
(Oh noesssss!!!, Not an Ancient Egyptian Pharoah! I hate those guys) Jane Austen, your frustrated tears nourish the black empty pit I call my soul.
I love it!
