    The ‘happy’ ending didn’t really work for me either, although I did love the last line! Overall this book was not at all what I was expecting. I liked it more than you did, but can’t see myself ever reading it again (or recommending it). The read-along experience was the best!

    I read this a couple of years ago and had a hard time with it as well. All the emotional angst, all the codependency and control issues…it was very bleak. I am not sure how I felt about it in the end, and it’s a classic for a reason, but I just had a hard time wrapping my head around the characters and their weirdness. I have never read anything quite like it before!

    These poor teens who open Wuthering Heights due to Twilight. They are in for a disappointment compared to how it’s portrayed in Meyer’s series.

    A friend made a point to me yesterday that I wondered about–she said that it seems that those who read this in high school tend to have a more positive recollection of the novel than those who read it as an adult. I’m not sure if this is true or not but I first read it in high school and loved it. I thought it was awful this time around but I was still captivated by the obsession and passion between Catherine and Heathcliff. Maddening though it is–there’s just something about it.

    Hope you’ll join us for Brothers K! Hopefully it will be a less depressing/wretched read. 🙂

    I feel behind and just finally got around to finishing this! I’ve read it twice before but thought maybe I would understand why it’s supposed to be such a great love story now that I’m older. Not so much!
