Bryn's review of Wuthering Bites

A Waste of Time

As I cringed my way through this atrocity, I sincerely wondered to myself if Sarah Gray had ever even read Wuthering Heights....or if she just went to SparkNotes or Wikipedia and decided she knew the story well enough to parody it. She didn't even bother to mimic the style of the author, instead dumbing the language down to a second-grader's ignorant idea of how people spoke in the 17th-18th centuries, not to mention how much she disfigured the characters.

Honestly, I'm not sure how you could possibly go wrong with vampires and Wuthering Heights, considering that the characters and setting are practically screaming it on their own. An author wouldn't have to even do much to slide vampires into the book, and yet somehow Gray has turned out this stuttering mockery of a novel.

This was clearly written for that group of Twilight-loving teeny boppers who couldn't tell good literature from their big toe, and who will read any book, as long as it has to do with vampires. Wuthering Bites is an insult to Emily Bronte's memory and should be banned or burned (or both).
