Wuthering Heights

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

Lockwood rents the manor Thrushcross Grange from the master of Wuthering Heights, Heathcliff. Upon arrival, Lockwood walks the four miles to Wuthering Heights to meet his new landlod and is greeted very strangly by a group of strage and suly people. Lockwood grows ill and as his servant Nelly Dean nurses his back to health, she tells the story of the Earnshaws, Heathcliff, and the Lintons.

I read this for a group read and discussion. It is one of those books that I have always wanted to read and felt lik I SHOULD read. I am glad I read it but there were many characters I did not like and made me angry. I do not see Heathcliff as either romantic or heroic. I just don't see it.

I'm interested to see how I end up feeling about this book. I'm only on chapter 12..so I have a lot of reading to do still.

I will be anxious to hear your final thoughts Kris. I am afraid to respond to some of your thoughts, questions, as I don't want to spoil anything!
