I'm surprised at the reviews, seeing as I thought this a much more witty and involved storyline than P&P&Z.

It's hard to write a review without comparing this book to its counterpart. Overall, this storyline was more what I was looking for (a total re-imagination of Sense & Sensibility, this time with sea monsters) rather than simply a few changes to the text (making Elizabeth and her sisters into ninjas).

In this book, Sense and Sensibility is transformed into another world (an under-water world, at that) and is re-shaped into something closer to the fantasy tale a lot of people are looking for when first researching this new genre.

While I do not think that this is some masterpiece to be put on a pedestal, I have to say I rather enjoyed it and think that most fans of Jane Austen and fantasy with feel the same.
