    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.

    Overall

    I like reading lit from Austen's period, and I like science fiction. I thought this would be perfect! However, the author didn't take either genre seriously, and this sort of seemingly dashed off romp is too poorly executed to make it work. I can see how someone could enjoy it if they don't want subtlety and complexity...sort of like old style comic books.
    Stick to reading Austen and Neal Stephenson alternately if you enjoy being immersed in another time and alternate realities.
