Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters expands the original text of the beloved Jane Austen novel with 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. 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!

This genre-crossing novel combines the classic social commentary of Austen with--of all things--monsters from the deep. Katherine Kellgren's proper English accent and manner are interspersed with moments of suspense as the two-headed sea serpents and a whole catalog of other sea monsters go on the attack. Kellgren maintains the heroine's attitude of civility and unflappably correct behavior even when the monsters are at their worst. Through sickness, loss of fortune, and romantic disappointments, Kellgren sees the characters through without hesitation. She maintains a good pace and relies on changes of tone to add texture to the narration. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
