    So if fictional characters love a book, does that make the book double-fiction? I think someone divided by zero here.

    Emily Bronte lived from 1818-1848, died at the age of 30 having written just one book, "Wuthering Heights"

    Based on this information alone, I am pretty sure "Wuthering Heights" was written about 160 years before this Edward or Bella character were even conceived.

    PS - I have here a book called "Dracula" written by Bram Stoker in 1897.

    If any subsequent vampire story was referenced on the cover of said book, I honestly would have to murder the party responsible for doing so

    Oh my god!

    I have that book.

    When I saw it in the bookstore and I saw that on the cover, I was appauled.

    Unfortunately, there were no other copies, so when I got home I had to literally cut off the "Bella and Edward`s favorite book" part from the cover and dispose of it.

    There are also copies of Romeo and Juliet and Pride and Prejudice that were redone with Twilight-themed cover art. They have the quotes "The original forbidden love" and "The love that started it all," respectively.

    Not only do I honestly love Wuthering Heights, I am also wondering how they imagine this sort of marketing strategy is going to work? I mean, seriously, as if any twilight fanw*ore is actually able to unterstand half of it...

    And people who actually read classic literature will definitely be deterred buying a book blemished with such atrocity.

    Wuthering Heights would be well into the public domain by now. So it was probably some low-end slimeball publisher that came up with this, rather than a reputable publishing house. Or at least I hope that`s the case.

    Comp - It`s Harpercollins. They`re not a low-end slimeball publisher.

    Do none of you people know a thing about advertising? By changing this book cover, HOW many more copies of this book have they sold? HOW much more money have they made? A pooTON! It was a smart marketing decision.

    As for the cover, it`s cute. I kinda` like it.

    I am not really sure why you said that, but I very clearly referred to when the characters were conceived. The characters were conceived by an author who made them up. They`re not real.

    All these books look and probably are exactly the same. What happened to the vampires I used to know and love? The cold, calculating killers that had not so much as an iota of compassion or love. Whose only goal was to seduce you into their their grasp so they could suck the very fluid that keeps you alive. STOP turning my favorite childhood bringers of fear into these pussy love stories. If you want to read a love story so badly, why don`t you improve your vocabulary a little and pick up some shakespeare?

    Agreed Smith. What happened to vamps who are also mysterious and powerful sorcerers? None of them fly or shape shift any more, none of them have the "evil genius" factor, they are almost never rich and powerful as an immortal being would be with infinite time to build a fortune. I miss characters like Barlow from Salem`s Lot, hypnotizing his victims and making crosses burst into flames.

    If it makes you feel any better, they`re not doing it to make people read it as much as they`re trying to cash in on the horrible Twilight craze. Plus, the idiots who worship the books will actually get a little bit of culture for once. So it`s not TOTALLY bad thing! You just have to look at it right!

    I absolutely loved vampires before the Twilight series ruined it. I read and enjoyed the books, except the last one bleh, but it was the movies and the fangirls after the movies that just killed my vamp fantasies. Blame the movie franchise and the pandemonium that it causes because books will never garner this much attention.

    "That`s terrible. WHY!??! They`ve ruined the original cover with that Twilight-esque flower, and why do they have to put about Bella and Edward?? JEEEEZ!"

    Because unfortunately for anyone with any taste in literature (I use the term ever so loosely in regards to the Twilight series), Twilight seems to be what sells at the moment.
    I f**king hate you Stephanie Meyers or whatever you`re called.

    What`s sad is Stephanie Meyer compares her books to the classics, such as Wuthering Heights and claims hers is much, much better.

    paddy,
    stfu,
    if you dont want to read the books, then dont read them.
    and besides,
    it doenst matter what the cover of the book is, im pretty sure that its contents are the same as it was 100 years ago.
    if it upsets you that much, rip the cover off...

    That`s disgusting. I guess if it get`s a generation of tasteless little girls to read a truly great peice of literature it`s not so bad. If you`re a diehard Twillight fan grab the nearest stick, shove it up your nose into your brain and grab a copy of Salem`s Lot and read a decent vampire novel.

    Cry me a drating river. I`m so tired of people being "disgusted" or "depressed" because of Twilight. Grow the fudgeC up! Really? It`s that big of an inconvenience on you that someone changed a book cover to bring in a new audience? Wow, that`s impressive that you have that little of a drating life.

    Seriously, you Twilight-haters must think about that drating series more than the fans do. That is NOT hatred.. That`s obsession. Get some help.

    And PreoSmo -

    Are you stupid? Meyer has said over and over again that she`s a novice writer, and that she`s seen improvement in her writing since starting, but she has NEVER claimed to be a literary genius. If she did, more people would hear about because it`s simply that untrue.

    Oh no. It`s real. I saw it in my local bookshop. It killed me just a little inside. But I suppose it encourage some twiheads to read the classics.Which can only be a good thing.

    I have read the Twilight books, mainly because every bit of technology I had broke a few months back, and they aren`t as bad as everyone is saying they are.
    I`m not saying that they are good . . . at all . . . . . . ever, but they aren`t this abomination of the english language that everyone is making them out to be.
    The movies suck donkey ass through a straw though, those ARE abominations.
    I think the main reason that everyone hates the books is because of their fan club of teenage girls who will murder you if you say anything bad about their oh so holy Edward.

    There`s my two cents.

    i never read the series, i went and saw the first movie (reluctantly, i only went cuz i had a good chance of gettin a piece of ass that night) and the movie sucked. it was boring, predictable, and not worth the time spend between the beginning of the date and getting laid

    "I have read the Twilight books, mainly because every bit of technology I had broke a few months back"
    Excuse fail. There are literally billions of books you could have chosen to read, and you chose Twilight. Really, it sounds to me like you feel like you have to make excuses for reading, period. What, you`ll only pick up a book if your PSP breaks down? Literacy fail, as well.

    I actually have an extensive collection of books, and the only technology I had at the time was my laptop, film camera and television. I have read all the books I currently own at least five or six times, but I don`t own Twilight, I borrowed it from one of my friends who is one of those people who warship Edward . . . yeah yeah. When I said I read it because my technology broke I meant specifically those books, my technology was constricting my time to such a degree that I didn`t have the time to read those specific books. I easily read about ten or eleven books a month.

    And yes, I have nothing better to do than write this.

    Yeah I saw these in a bookshop a while ago. I ripped out pages from my notebook and slipped notes inside which read: "You know this isn`t Twilight, right?" and "Just to let you know, there aren`t any vampires in this one". Its awful that classic books have been reduced to this.

    This has to end. Bronte is probably spinning in her grave. Hey, not a bad idea. Even as a zombie Ms. Bronte could pwn that fictional pansy vamp.

    If this spills over into Jane Austen I am leaving the country. Indeed the planet.
