I'm in shock...!

OH MY GOSH! Do you SEE what that little red circle on the cover says!? In case you cant, it says:

Bella & Edward's Favourite Book

...are you kidding me??

I'm sorry in advance for any of you Twilight-obsessed fanatics, but this is just waaay too much! Sure, I thought the Twilight saga was great and all - but what the heck is the world of literature coming to!? Wuthering Heights, a classic, is now reprinting the book with this sticker on it...not to mention the cover.. hmm it looks awfully familiar. I can not believe they would go this far just to sell a classic novel. It's pathetic.

I'm sorry, I just really gotta get all of this off my chest. Everywhere I look nowadays, it's always Twilight this! Twilight that! There are sooo many other great books out there for people to discover. I'm so tired of everything being Twilight - it hurts my head. :/ I used to love the books, but now...ughh it's just way too overdone.

Basically I just think it's pretty stupid that a classic novel, Wuthering Heights, now has to be promoted by Twilight. "Bella & Edward's Favourite Book"...is that really the best thing they can think of to try to sell more copies of it!? They are freakin fictional characters!

Again - I'm sorry if I offended anyone but it's just my own opinion. What do you think about it?

Totally agree with you. It is crazy. But the marketing people know that Twilight is a huge hit, so they are going to continue to market those people until they know they cannot go any further. It is sad really to see this.

I think it's pretty funny. Imagine how surprised some TWILIGHT fans will be when they purchase WUTHERING HEIGHTS based solely on the cover! Ultimately, I think it's insulting to Bronte, too.

the twilight craze extends even further! I thought they crossed the line when I found out Edward has his own GOOGLE but this is just crazy. I can't believe people still love twilight with the same fervor they had waaay before all the crazy movie madness.

Edward has his own Google!? What??

UGH UGH UGH

Then again, I think it's oddly appropriate. I mean, I certainly thought the plot of Wuthering Heights was as strangely icky as that of Twilight, so...I guess they deserve each other, at least a little.

Somebody else posted about this and I'll say the same thing. Are you kidding ME! I totally agree. I liked Twilight but I hate how they're comparing it to everything now. Did you hear that they're comparing it to HP? Come on! Now its making me hate Twilight.

In a way, I think this is really sad, especially because of that shameless Edward and Bella plug off to the right haha. But, I also think this is good because it gets people, especially teens reading. A lot of younger people want nothing to do with books of any kind, let alone a classic like Wuthering Heights. But that little red stamp thingy turns me off lol.

Michelle, I agree with you about how it's a good way to get tweens reading classics...but the thing is - this was written in the 1800's! I think a lot of kids will be disappointed with it because it's a much harder and more complex book than Twilight.
