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!

After the previous Pride and Prejudice and Sea Monsters I was curious to see where this adventure would take the reader. Although Kathryn Kellgren's reading is masterful as always, the material is so bad that nothing can really save it. Not worth the paper, or MB it takes up in the world.
The girls are island hopping with sea monsters in Devon. It was too much to pass up and so to my regret I wasted a credit. In the next series one of Anthony Trollup's preachers meets superman.
As an Austen fan, I have read every variation on Jane's novels I can find. This ridiculous "book" is just awful. I found absolutely ZERO merit in it. It is an embarrassment to its author, an assault on Jane's timeless work and an insult to my intelligence. If I could, I would rate it ZERO stars out of five.
