Classic Remix

Look up Elizabeth - It's makeover time
Now I know what cricketers mean when they say they're 'out of form'. Strange it is.. to not have the drive to do what you love and enjoy the most... for me it's reading, blogging, exercising. No thrill in any of those these days. But more on that later.

What has brought me back here was an article I found in today's papers. You can read it here...

Apparently classics like 'Pride and Prejudice', 'Jane Eyre' and 'Wuthering Heights' are set to get a "steamy makeover". Blasphemy or what??? Oh well once upon a time I did find them a bit restrained and staid. However, that's part of the old world charm of the books, isn't it?

An Elizabeth who finds Mr Darcy 'hot'.... is not the Elizabeth I know.


  1. I think the problem is we dont have many writers who can write original these days , so they try to RE-mix it in a new face.

    it happens a lot these days not jsut with books but with all MUSIC, Movies everything

  3. Am not totally against remixes per se, though agree would be a murder of the classics. Would be willing to give it a shot after duly convincing myself that it is a new story. Only condition - should be well written.

  4. @Bikram: I've accepted the music remixes but somehow this seems like sacrilege. maybe over time we'll get used to them too.
    @Snigs: It won't be a new story... but one can read it like a new one.

  5. Agree. The last line says it all!


Glad to have you here. It's your turn to share your thoughts...
