[Novel] Wuthering Heights (Emily Brontë)

Wuthering Heights“Now, Catherine, you are letting your tears fall into my cup. I won’t drink that. Give me another.” -_-;

I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that contained more pure, undiluted anger than Wuthering Heights. It’s an abomination pieced together from the worst of human conditions where even the supposedly positive characters harbor more bile and contempt than your everyday villain. And that’s why it’s an absolutely brilliant piece of Victorian fiction that should be read by everyone.

Positive: Negative:
Flowery and rich but not obtuse prose Somewhat predictable plot and story
Profound, fascinating characters Can feel a bit boring at times due to relatively slow pace
The amount of anger in this book is… incredible
Enlightening on Victorian society
Thought-provoking on interpersonal relationships
