Book Review: The Heights

Title: The Heights
Author: Brian James
Genre: YA Literary Fiction
Rating: C

140-Character Summary: Wuthering Heights told as if Heathcliff and Cathy lived in San Francisco in an era where marrying your adopted sibling would be creepy.

First 140 Characters: "Always near the bay, I've felt like a fish. Pushed along through every day of my life the way fish are by the currents. Not caring much..."

140-Character Review: Making Bronte easier to understand is great (Henry was the best translation), but the shortening of the book left "a lot to be desired".
