BOOK REVIEW

Released: July 8, 1992

"Stick to the high ground of the original instead."
Sequelmania strikes again as Haire-Sargeant presumes upon Emily Brontâ's stark, strange masterpiece, delivering a story that achieves a slight success as a literary pastiche but never becomes a satisfying work of fiction in its own right. Read full book review >
