To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I adored this remix of Wuthering Heights! I’m a huge Tasha Suri fan, and I was curious about how she’d take on a non-fantasy novel. I shouldn’t be surprised that in What Souls Are Made Of, she crafted an exquisite reimagining of Wuthering Heights.
It’s clear that an incredible amount of research and care went into this novel, but it never feels bogged down. Rather, I was swept away by Cathy and Heathcliff — not only their love story, which is beautifully swoony, but also the incredible arcs that Suri gives each character. Imagining them as having Indian backgrounds deepens their stories and, in my opinion, only improves on the classic.
And, as usual, because this is a Tasha Suri novel, the prose is stunning.
Overall, I would say that however you felt about Wuthering Heights, What Souls Are Made Of is a must-read.
