This is the follow-up to Quirk's first classic - Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" - a novel that's even funnier, scarier, and infinitely more entertaining. Once again, Quirk offers the original text from a masterpiece of English literature - supplemented with all-new pages of high-octane monster action. "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" reached as high as number 17 on Amazon Books and number 1 on The Book Depository. "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" is the publishing industry's surprise hit of Spring 2009. Now Quirk is elevating the genre of 'mash-up literature' to awesome new heights with "Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters", an expanded edition of the beloved regency romance - with thrilling all-new scenes of giant lobsters, rampaging octopi, two-headed sea serpents, and other biological monstrosities. 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.
