Wuthering Heights
 
yay or nay?

I just finished reading it. Again. :mad:

Saria 01-20-2013 12:02 PM

NAY! Do not want.

kat180 01-20-2013 12:15 PM

Love the book.

As a romance? Nay. Lol.

Although Catherine and Hareton's story is sweet.

claudine19 01-20-2013 12:18 PM

I couldn't get through it.

Hated that book I'm a Jane Eyre type of girl.

I prefer Jane Eyre.

Wiregirl 01-20-2013 10:16 PM

Yes, yes yes and the movie with
Sir Laurence Olivier who was married to the crazy byotch Vivien Leigh at the time! To die for!

Love the book and the movie.
I like Jane Eyre too but it's sometimes too light and fluffy for me. I'm a dark and brooding kinda girl mostly.

Very dark. I just read Ethan Frome again and it bummed me out as usual.

Me too. I find it interesting that WH delves into the romantic gothic tradition, but also exposes the kind of creepy, stalkerish lunacy which is the natural extension of that romantic ideal of eternal, larger-than-life love. Nothing good comes out of Heathcliff's unrelenting posessiveness. I think its odd so many women find him desirable. In the end, its the kinder, more compassionate and down-to-earth love between Catherine and Hareton that prevails.
