Short book reviews by Tats: Wuthering Heights

Half way point: Pretty much all of the protagonists are insufferable. Heathcliff holds the intergalactic record for Epic Brooding and has zero redeeming features.

Curious how it'll manage to salvage a happy ending from here.

Also, I still want to live on a moor. Despite Heathcliff.

At the end: Ok so it seems whichever Bronte wrote Wuthering Heights was a bit obsessed with folks going mad and dying of TB. But the ending was nice and tidy, cousin-marriages notwithstanding.

Heathcliff can eat a bag of dicks though.

That is exactly what bugs me about Jane Eyre.

I've only read Jane Eyre, which I think is by the other sister. Eons ago (like, in the 70s in high school). I only remember not liking it much.

And cousin marriages happened for realz all the time back then, she says looking over her family tree...

Yeah, but it lead to that great song, Wuthering Heights. I now have a cover version stuck in my head.

Dunno if you're a fan of wacky online comics, but Kate Beaton has some fantastic strips about Wuthering Heights.

Just wait until you've read Jane Eyre ... Mr Rochester is just as bad ...

I had to read Wuthering Heights in high school. Maybe it would be different if I read it now, but when I was in high school it was the most boringest thing ever.
