This was a hilarious take on a classic novel. I highly recommend listening to it as an audio book. It was very entertaining.

A good story though only if you try and forget about Jane Austen's original. Very long winded. and a 6.3 aftershock on the 22nd Feb 2011 didn't help.

A bit of a letdown. They could have had so much more fun with this, but instead focused on being true to the original text far more than on making the sea monsters fun. Unfortunately, this one just turned out to be boring.
