Wuthering Heights Wednesday is a read-a-long hosted by Fizzy Thoughts.
This is me, catching up with you all!
For this week, WHW is covering the last two chapters (13 and 14) of “volume 1”, and the first chapter of “volume 2”. I’m not going to summarize what’s happened, since some of you have already done that, and, frankly, I don’t really want to!
I will say this:
Why is there no one to like in this story? Or sympathize with? Or at least feel properly sorry for? At least there’s always something interesting going on, so I’m not bored reading. I just find myself constantly screaming at the characters, going “seriously? SERIOUSLY?!?”
This was also the book that my book club read before the first time I joined in, and when I mentioned the impression I had gotten, they also agreed that there’s no one to like in Wuthering Heights. How has a book with absolutely no likeable characters managed to become such a classic?
Anyone out there have a different impression?
