Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters (Paperback)
This had to be one of the biggest wastes of time I have experienced with a novel in a long time. I really, really enjoyed Pride and Prejudice and Zombies; primarily because Austin's work was left intact and the author just added Zombies, almost as if they really belonged there. But the characters and the story line was in line with Austin. This story, Sense and Sensability and Sea Monsters changed character, landscape, personality, etc. It was ridiculous. It is clear to me that the author was simply trying to cash in on the success of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, without understanding why it was such a success. Please, if you are looking for a fun read, don't pick this book! And, if you are a lover of classics, be prepared for a slaughter of beloved characters and out of place, unfunny, uninteresting changes to the story.

That's nearly word for word the review I came here to make. I love the original and am something of a zombie fan, but this was an inept attempt at... I'm really not sure what the goal was, but he failed.
