What happens when we choose our own endings?
This piece in Boing Boing about an analysis of paths and outcomes in a choose-your-own-adventure book made me wonder what would happen in the case of a similar analysis of Lost in Austen (the book, not the excellent TV series, which is brilliant if only for Amanda's "postmodern moment"). My Honours class recently looked at the book and oddly... or not... "unfavorable endings" abounded. The path of true love never did run smooth.
There is also a graphic novel of Pride and Prejudice due out. And word out on the street, a graphic novel version of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
