Love is a nightmare. This we know. I’m so tired of those stupid chick lit books where everyone ends up safe, happy, and in love at the end. That’s why I’m so excited that the new romance/horror mash-up from the genius behind Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is now on bookstore shelves! In Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, Ben H. Winters expands on the Jane Austen classic with all-new scenes of giant lobsters, octopi, two-headed sea serpents, and other sub-human monstrosities. Now that’s my kind of love story! Bloody, gory, awkward, and odd—kind of like it is in real life. When the Dashwood sisters are forced to leave their childhood home and sent to live on a mysterious island, they will either drown or stay afloat. While sensible Elinor falls in love with Edward Ferrars, romantic Marianne is forced to choose between two suitors—handsome Willoughby and half-man/half-monster Colonel Brandon. That’s a no-brainer—go for the monster dude, of course! See a video preview for the book after the jump.
