Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters


Well, I gotta be honest. I didn't enjoy this one as much as I did Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I think Quirk Classics should spice up a classic be another author - Maybe Oliver Twist and Sewer Rats or something like that. I love that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies stuck to the original plot and just added the Zombies to the storyline. Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters was a totally different story. I think that's why I didn't like it as much.

But I didn't hate it. Reading it just as a story, not really as a take on Sense and Sensibility, it's an entertaining story. But it didn't keep me wanting more like Pride did. Good book, not great. If you don't like the idea of tarnishing Jane Austin's goodhearted stories, then this would be a good book for you since there isn't much Sense and Sensibility to it. (Oh, and the video clip I mentioned in my other review - that's doesn't actually happen in the story.)

But really, given the choice, I choose Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Ariel - I don't, sorry. Going back to school, one of my budget cuts is buying books - thus I've become a frequent library card user (wish there were rewards benefits like free books for how many I check out.)
