WTF Emily Bronte? What a bizarre book you have written. And who thinks this drivel is romantic? Not I, that’s for sure.
Summary from Barnes and Noble:
Emily Brontë’s only novel, Wuthering Heights remains one of literature’s most disturbing explorations into the dark side of romantic passion. Heathcliff and Cathy believe they’re destined to love each other forever, but when cruelty and snobbery separate them, their untamed emotions literally consume them.
Set amid the wild and stormy Yorkshire moors, Wuthering Heights, an unpolished and devastating epic of childhood playmates who grow into soul mates, is widely regarded as the most original tale of thwarted desire and heartbreak in the English language.
Yes, Barnes and Noble summary, “cruelty and snobbery” do separate them. BUT IT IS THEIR OWN CRUELTY AND SNOBBERY. These are not victims, they are horrible people! And two horrible people who love each other does not romantic make. Yes, it is refreshing when two lovers are not perfect, but really I was disgusted time and time again. Heathcliff and Cathy manage to make everyone around them miserable. I found Wuthering Heights to be melodramatic, and the characters totally unsympathetic. Blah.
