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 Austens biting social commentary with ultraviolent depictions of sea monsters biting. Its survival of the fittest and only the swiftest swimmers will find true love!
The above text is from the book Sense and Senseibility and Sea Monster book I just saw in the store yesterday. I blogged about Pride and Prejudice and Zombies when I saw that. I love those books and I think it is stupid to make them w/ supertnatural creatures. I know there supposed to be quirky and funny but I would hate a good classic to be ruined the way it is.
