The new Wuthering Heights reviewed. - By Troy Patterson - Slate Magazine
<<It is common to invoke Classics Illustrated to insult literary adaptations that degrade their sources, but Wuthering Heights is corny to its core, and Masterpiece's comic-bookish treatment of it is actually elevating. One hears stories about readers who finish bingeing on Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series and find themselves jonesing for something of the same potency—and they go ripping through their roommates' bookshelves to see if there's a hit of Heights up there. (Bella Swan, the heroine of Meyer's vampire novels, is a big fan.) Stylizing Brontë's broad strokes, the creators of this latest Wuthering Heights turn weak literature into muscular pop and contrive something perfectly suited to that very audience of Twilight-zoners.>>
