In Defense of Mrs. Bennett

April 27, 2009 at 1:35 am (books, fun) (, )


Currently I am reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I am finding it really funny. But it also reminds me that I often find myself defending Mrs. Bennett. ( If you don’t know P&P, she is the mother of 5 daughters) She is loud, silly, and narrow-minded. And her only concern is to get her daughters well-married. Now add some zombies to the mix. Really, you begin to see that not only is marriage the only option for a well-bred woman of the time, but it might also be the only thing that stops her daughters for continuing their slaying/zombie hunting. Put your self back in time and in Mrs. Bennett’s shoes… Which life would you prefer for your daughter?
