Little Vampire Women By Louisa May Alcott and Lynn Messina. Published by Harper Collins… Is the latest book desperately jumping on the bandwagon of the success of “Pride and Prejudice and zombies.”
“Christmas wont be Christmas without any corpses.” (Wow, if I had a nickle for every time I said that!)
The dear, sweet March sisters are back, and Marmee has told them to be good little women. Good little vampire women, that is. That’s right: Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy have grown up since you last read their tale, and now they have (much) longer lives and (much) more ravenous appetites.
Marmee has taught them well, and so they live by an unprecedented moral code of abstinence . . . from human blood. Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy must learn to get along with one another, help make society a better place, and avoid the vampire hunters who pose a constant threat to their existence. Plus, Laurie is dying to become a part of the March family, at any cost. Some things never change.
So let me get this straight not only are they vampires, but they are also socially conscientious vampires…..
Do they also glitter in the sunlight by any chance. And what the crap is up with that cover. Why are vampires always shown with blood dripping down their face. Haven’t they ever heard of napkins? Damn vampire slobs. Clean yourselves up!
To be honest I don’t know why this mashup irritates me and the other one’s don’t…. I’m fickle I suppose. Maybe tomorrow, I’ll be all over it, but for right now… Meh.
(FOLLOW UP EDIT)
It’s been two day and this idea has grown on me. Little Vampire Women sounds funny to me now, because why the hell not. As long as it’s poking fun at the classics I’m all for it….. Although seriously, ladies, wipe your mouths. Why are vampires always shown drooling blood all over the place? That’s not necessary.
That stuff stains you know!!!
