I’m reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies now for my fun summer reading, even though I hate zombies. There’s no good from a zombie. The only thing to do with a zombie is shoot it in the head. But in zombie movies, people are torn. The zombies are reanimated dead bodies, but they look like the people they used to be. There’s always someone in a zombie movie who hesitates and does not shoot the zombie in the head because it looks like her sweetie. But it’s not her sweetie. Her sweetie would never try to rip off her arm or eat her brains out. Zombies are carnivorous monsters who only want to kill and eat human brains, something the loved ones they resemble could never do.
Look at actions, not appearances. Don’t trust the wolf who looks innocent in the sheepskin, but see what fruit he bears. He will prove himself to be the ravenous monster he is underneath, not the innocent sheep he appears on the surface. Only a fig tree can bear figs, you’ll only get stung by a thistle. The good people will show their goodness, and the bad cannot hide their true nature for long.
