1.0 out of 5 stars A poor attempt to modify a classic 22 Oct 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read several books of this genre but this was very, very disappointing. Others, such as Jane Slayre and Android Karenina, weave the new elements subtly cleverly into the text, in the style of the original author. This didn't happen here - a few references were thrown in such as Heathcliffe having hairy hands, and as for the conclusion... terrible! Suddenly Emily B's lovely prose became something else entirely, without any attempt to match style or even tense. It could have been so much better. Not recommended. Read the original, unchanged version if you haven't already. Now THAT is really a classic.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 1 Jan 2012
By PFK
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read some very good books of this type (Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters is a particularly good one) I had high hopes of this book - and was extremely disappointed by it. It is basically Wuthering Heights with the odd sentence inserted perfunctorily at long intervals, and a scrappy and very brief ending added. Not remotely worth buying - don't bother!

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the better mash-ups 30 Mar 2012
By w james
Format:Paperback
I've read some of the other mash-ups, like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, and Abraham Lincoln-Vampire Hunter, but this one was better than any of those. The problem with those books was that the mash-up aspect was jarring, and not very well worked into the original text. And they were too over-the-top. This one is much more subtle, and works in the werewolf aspects of the story in a really ingenious way, so that the text flows smoothly, and makes for a much more enjoyable and entertaining read. And after all, Heathcliff had a very beastly nature in the original, so to turn him into a werewolf works realy well. It's not a completely ridiculous premise, like sea monters in Sense and Sensibility. And it all leads up to an ending which is really great. If you're looking for an obvious, obnoxious mash-up, then this might not be for you. But if you want something with a little more thought put into it, I don't think this one will disappoint.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pointless 11 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and loved it - it was the perfect monster genre mashup - but this, this is complete and utter rubbish.

The thing with it is, Wuthering Heights is a GREAT book, a fantastic book, and there is probably a way to make it into a GREAT and funny book by adding in your werewolves and your zombies; but this just reads like Wuthering Heights, with the odd wolf-related observation chucked in there. I don't know about the zombie - I never made it that far.

Pride and Prejudice (another great book) was enhanced by the addition of zombies. This has actually managed to detract my enjoyment from a classic read. I feel my reading experience of that classic novel has been sullied by reading this tripe. In fact at about p. 254, I felt the need to cleanse myself and downloaded the real Wuthering Heights to my Kindle, to get rid of this claptrap from my mind.

There was no need for this ever to have been written and certainly no need for it to be published. It's a bit like that old Blackadder joke - it's like a broken pencil - Pointless. Come to think of it, I wish the author had broken his pencil and never subjected us to it in the first place. Crap. Utter Crap. Don't waste your money on it. I only paid 77 English pence for it, and quite frankly it was 77 English pence too much.
