Sense and Sensibility and Sea MonstersSense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters by Ben H. Winters

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


This novel uses the original text of Jane Austen's classic and adds scenes deriving from the Alteration, a catastrophic event of unknown origin that leads the creatures of the sea to declare war on the creatures of the land. Adding pirates, giant lobsters, kraken, and other vicious fish to an already satiric novel about marriage and social class just makes the original text passages seem that much more trivial and silly. A fun, often hilarious (and sometimes pretty gory) diversion.
