Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte
read June 2011
blurb: Published a year before her death at the age of thirty, Emily Brontë’s only novel is set in the wild, bleak Yorkshire Moors. Depicting the relationship of Cathy and Heathcliff, Wuthering Heights creates a world of its own, conceived with an instinct for poetry and for the dark depths of human psychology.
I found that this book never really had a dull moment, which was not what I’d come to expect of a book from this era at an age where I was less about AAAH LITERATURE, LET ME ANALYSE IT (as I am now) and more about TELL ME A GOOD STORY. And I got my good story. An unsettling, chilling, disastrous story of love, life, and death. I really enjoyed it, though I remember having to constantly flick back to the provided family tree to make sense of who was who! This is definitely on the re-read list, and I’ll put my nerd goggles on next time.
