Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters by Jane Austen and Ben H. Winters

Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters expands upon the original text of Jane Austen’s treasured tale of the Dashwood sisters by adding new scenes of enormous crustaceans, rampaging octopi, mutant sea monsters, and other aquatic horrors.
I am a huge Jane Austen fan. I have read every book and watched every movie. I tried so hard to like this book but just couldn’t get into it. It was a funny story and perhaps if I was not already a lover of all things Austen I might have appreciated the humor much more. I feel like I have dropped the ball a little with such a brief review but in all honesty my feelings about this book can best be described as indifferent
