A new edition of Wuthering Heights designed to resemble Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight books has sold over 10,000 copies in Britain this year, reports the Guardian:
“Love the Twilight books? Then you’ll adore Wuthering Heights, one of the greatest love stories ever told,” gushes the book chain’s synopsis of Emily BrontÃƒÂ«’s novel. “Cathy and Heathcliff, childhood friends, are cruelly separated by class, fate and the actions of others. But uniting them is something even stronger: an all-consuming passion that sweeps away everything that comes between them. Even death!”
Apparently some new readers are unimpressed, as are those who did not need young adult vampire fiction to discover the book on their own.
