    1. Always interesting to take a book/character you know and have their story told differently.For me,Heathcliff didn't seem angry enough or obsessed enough for the story that I knew would unfold.A good stand alone book though,full of decent stories to fill the missing years.The random violence didnt seem to fit the tone of the bookIt didn't carry on for long enough either,I was most surprised by what felt like an abrupt finish,though a natural one.Could have happily carried on reading.

    2. Whilst Wuthering Heights is my favourite book and I thoroughly rated Nelly Dean by Alison Case, I was a little disappointed with this story of what happened to Heath cliff in the years he was away.It's hard to say too much without giving the plot away so all I wii say is that it was nicely written and included a lot of things relevant to the time period but the recurrent use of a particular swear word I felt unnecessary. However the pleasure of reading an idea of what may have happened to Heath [...]

    3. I wish this book didn't have so much swearing!!! It was really offputting to see the C word bandied about so much! And I have to confess that this version of Heathcliffe was no where near the version in my head. However all that said, the plot was really engaging! I enjoyed the character of Emily and their journey together with all its many troubles was pretty riveting stuff! It just wasn't what I was expecting/hoping it would be.
