Product description

Review

Black Spring is a powerful Gothic fantasy which can be enjoyed whether you have or haven't read Wuthering Heights...The characters are its crowning glory. * Book Angel Booktopia * Anyone who can turn my most hated read into an excellent enjoyable book is definitely an author to be explored further * Serendipity Reviews * An impressive modern retelling which captures something of the language, drama, madness, tortured love and agony of the original. Well worth reading * My Favourite Books * I would recommend it to anyone who likes a bit of a passionate gothic fantasy * Big Book Little Book * It is a re-imagining and, for me, a very successful one that is not only likely to encourage teen readers to investigate Wuthering Heights for themselves, but also prepares them for some of the difficulties they may face in doing so * Thoughts from the Hearthfire * A stylish, elegantly written story -- Julia Eccleshare * Lovereading4kids.co.uk * Atmospheric throughout, and gripping til the end, with a tension that never abates, Black Spring is a lyrical masterpiece; a beautiful piece of literature that evokes as many emotions as the flawed, incredibly human characters it pays homage to throughout. * ArtsHub UK * The book is a brilliant gothic fantasy all on its own but it gains in complexity and depth through its relationship to its source text * Oxford Erin * Like the story that inspired it, this is a story of passion, violence and love that destroys, not heals, but with a fantasy twist * Victoria Writes * If you enjoyed the original and like fantasy, or if you want to read a dark tale of despair, then Black Spring will be perfect * My Book Journey * It's a such a clever retelling - all the crucial basic plot elements of Wuthering Heights are here, with characters appearing in similar guises, but what I think is really amazing is the way Alison Croggon captures the atmosphere of the original book, including all the savagery and violence, and its dissection of the concept of revenge * Katy Moran * I would recommend it to all my friends, as it is flawless in style, character and plot. -- Alisa Matyunina * Teen Titles *
