Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters
From the publisher of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies comes a new tale of romance, heartbreak, and tentacled mayhem. Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters expands the original text of the beloved Jane Austen novel with all-new scenes of giant lobsters, rampaging octopi, two-headed sea serpents, and other biological monstrosities. As our story opens, the Dashwood sisters are evicted from their childhood home and sent to live on a mysterious island full of savage creatures and dark secrets. While sensible Elinor falls in love with Edward Ferrars, her romantic sister Marianne is courted by both the handsome Willoughby and the hideous man-monster Colonel Brandon. Can the Dashwood sisters triumph over meddlesome matriarchs and unscrupulous rogues to find true love? Or will they fall prey to the tentacles that are forever snapping at their heels? This masterful portrait of Regency England blends Jane Austen's biting social commentary with ultraviolent depictions of sea monsters biting. It's survival of the fittest-and only the swiftest swimmers will find true love! From the Trade Paperback edition.

1 . Entertaining Read
Posted April 23, 2010 by Hannah , Portland, ORI never read the original, or even knew anything about it except that it existed. I did enjoy it though, but I wish I had something to compare it to for the comedy and absurdity. The ending felt a bit rushed and unsatisfying, but other than that it's very good. The language and interactions feel very authenticly Jane Austen.
