partially read

Jane Austen and Ben H. Winters' Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters
I enjoyed Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (can't find the link to my review--Blogger's search function is so finicky)--it was an original and funny idea, and I loved the original and this new take. I was a little leery of this rushed-to-market sequel, which is even less Austen text and more add-ins. But actually, the reason I couldn't get through it was that Sense and Sensibility is not one of my favorite Austen books (the romantic foibles annoy me), and the insertion of sea monsters somehow made it even more boring. I only made it to page 56. Oh well.
