After reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and loving it, I was really excited to get my hands on this book. It's not quite as good as P&P&Z, but that may be because I like zombies better than sea monsters and I like P&P better than S&S. Winters does a good job of mixing the new Sea Monster parts with the classic Sense and Sensibility. In both this book and P&P&Z, I've been amazed with how easily the two aspects (the classic Austen and the added weirdness) mix. I thought there were a few interjections that were a bit over done with this book (the sub-plot with Margaret was a bit too much), but over all I thought it was a fun read.
