all i wanted to do with my labor day was to stay in bed all day and read a silly book. success!!*

i fully expected to hate this book. i mean, come on:

Instead of storms tearing through Yorkshire moors, the sounds of '90s grunge rock whisper through backwoods American cornfields…

ohhhh - grunge! heathcliff in flannel! cathy in a knit hat!



hilarity.

and what the hell is up with that cover?? why is heathcliff sitting around shirtless getting his trousers all wet in… a lake??? a crick??? in west freakin

Esto es puro melodrama, o sea, del tipo de las novelas de la tarde (de la mañana, noche, el horario que sea) que dan en la tele. Parecido a los clásicos como "no toques a mi hombre, inválida del demonio"...pero no tan ridículo, no tanto como para reirse. En realidad, lo contrario, es ridículo pero atrapante, creo que hasta te lo podés tomar en serio.

Es la esencia de Wuthering Heights sin la prosa maravillosa de Emily Brontë (duh). Me pareció que los personajes, a pesar de la pavada, los diálogos

OK, I'll be completely honest and say I picked it up because of the cover. I mean, look at it. Yum!



The cover captured my eye but the blurb made me read it then and there. It's a Wuthering Heights retelling set in 90's. It sounds cool, right?

The first half of the book was all about Cathy and Heath growing up, falling in love and finding out love is not enough when it comes to people who want 2 entirely different things.

The second half of the book was so intense and mind-blowing! Cathy and Heat

This story is inspired from the book, Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. I wish I could say I’ve read but I haven’t, so I don’t have anything to compare it to. However, I can tell you that I loved this twisted and dark story; it’s an absolute page turner and will keep you up all night long! Yes, it’s that good!!

I had no idea what to expect from this story and I stumbled onto this book purely by accident on Amazon; I’m not sure if it was the blurb, the cover or both that attracted me to this book

What fun!

In this edgy, stylish adaptation of a beloved classic, Chambers takes the iconic love triangle of Catherine, Heathcliff, and Edgar to new levels. Without losing the spirit of the original characters, Chambers reinvents many of the situations that the characters find themselves in, in order to both reconcile with the changing times, and to resonate with a contemporary audience.

Wuther also takes bold risks-Linton as a sociopath-ic "kissing-cousin", Catherine as a grunge-loving 90's teen

2 or 3 stars. Hmmm, trying to decide...

I liked this book. I also did not like this book. It had promise, but it fell short for me.

The writing was very choppy, more so in some parts than in others. There were times when I was pulled right out of the story because of the stilted sentence structure. I felt as if the sex scenes in particular were being thrown at me, sentence by choppy unnatural sentence. It needed...more. More feeling. More emotion. More more. I usually disappear into a book, but t

Dark, cruel characters and weak, shallow characters - somehow the writer finds the balance where you're interested in each of them. This book kept me guessing. I haven't read Wuthering Heights so I have no frame of reference. If you're looking for a twisted read this Summer, this book is for you. It's not a feel good, happily ever after kind of book.

I had to force myself to finish this book. A lover of Wuthering Heights, I thought this would be right up my alley. I was wrong. The amateur writing made me cringe. This author is a high school English teacher? This book read like one if her students' essays.

If Zemira says this is good I will give it a try! :)

I have never read "Wuthering Heights" so can't really compare the two. Each time I think about this book - I still cannot decide if I liked it or not. It started out just fine and then kinda descended into a bit of chaos. Catherine as portrayed in this book pretty much prostituted herself in the name of love, tried to justify it and then convinced herself that she truly loved Eli and maybe she did eventually. And Heath...wow..what a train wreck he turned out to be - continueing the vicious cycle ...more

Messed up page turning drama that is utterly compelling, a modern twist on Wuthering Heights which is well worth a read.

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! Just as haunting and twisted as the original but she managed to make it her own.

Book 9 by V.J. Chambers, I'll have to give a 0. If it was a movie like the Notebook, I might be able to follow along. It's not & so I'm unable to.

I really enjoyed this telling of WH. I'm a fan of the Bronte story and reading a modernized version made for a brilliant page turner. :)

Considering I didn't like Wuthering Heights, why am I bothering to read this? Oh right. Shirtless guy.
