Wuthering Bites

Wuthering Bites
By Sarah Gray
Kensington Pub. 2010. 362 pgs. Fiction

I find it surprising that the breakthrough novel of the twisted classics genre was a zombified version of Pride and Prejudice when so many other classic works lend themselves so much better to stories with horrific creatures of the night. Wuthering Heights seems to be made for such additions and while reading Wuthering Bites I often found myself wondering how the storyline even made sense without the undead literally roaming the moors. Heathcliff’s dark moods and Cathy’s inability to rest in peace are perfectly at home amid the vampires that populate England’s countryside in this new depiction of Bronte’s time-tested tragedy.
