Just when you thought you had seen it all with the incredible popularity of Quirk Books’ reimagining of Jane Austen’s classic novel into the Regency period zombie-fest Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, now comes what sounds like an even more bizarro/hilarious blend of Regency romance and … sea monsters!!
Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters is the latest title from Quirk Books. Just imagine the Dashwood sisters (played in the 1995 film by Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet) and what happens when their suitors, Edward Farrars (Hugh Grant), John Willoughby (Greg Wise) and Captain Brandon (Alan Rickman), have gills/tentacles/a general sliminess. Hilarity and gruesomeness must surely ensue. Not to mention the Dashwood sisters needing to develop some serious lung capacity in order to hold their breath while possibly being courted underwater.
September 15th is the day to circle on your calendar for the book’s release. You KNOW you want to see how THIS classic novel plays out with heaving bosoms and floppy tentacles.
