A fantasy take on the worlds of Jane Austen and the Brontes, which I have to admit has faded in my memory since I read it several weeks back. I remember finding the period language a bit off-key in places. It's a better idea than Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, anyway.
A short but rather depressing book by Nobel laureate Lessing, about a disastrous marriage between two white colonists in the future Zimbabwe; a vivid pair of psychological portraits, though the motivation for the crime that starts and ends the book seemed a bit obscure to me and rather played into rather than against racist stereotypes.
