Wuthering Heights: The End

Hello there. So I finished Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights a couple days ago, and I want to share my thoughts on it. Overall, it was a fantastic book. Really, my only complaint is the fact that it was just storytelling, there wasn’t much plot to it.

But, on the other hand, it definitely kept me interested throughout the whole thing. And just for the record, I totally predicted that Catherine would have a thing for Hareton in the end. ❤ He was my favorite character.

Okay, so the book did start off a little slow, so it took me about seven chapters to really get into it. But once I got into it, I couldn’t stop. I was hooked!

So, talking to Kat about it, she didn’t like Heathcliff really at all. I was into him. He had a rough childhood, and Catherine went and ruined his life for no good reason. Why must she be such a dumb head? Good gravy.

Yes, as I said earlier, Hareton was my fave character, he was so cute when he had a little crush on Catherine (jr), but instead, she picks Linton. The biggest crybaby in the history of all crybabies. He’s so obnoxious and horrible.

And then Heathcliff dies and I was like what?! HE CAN’T DIE! Why must I have emotions. Why. Why why why.

Anyway, that’s all my thoughts! Kat, go right ahead!

Hey guys!  Kat here, reviewing Wuthering Heights.  So all in all, the book started off a little slow.  Like Em said, I was really not into Heathcliff.  He was, to put it frankly, a demonic dude.  I know love can hurt, especially when you lose your childhood partner-in-crime, bff, and high school sweetheart, but to go all Count of Monte Cristo on your ex-girlfriend’s relations? C’mon, dude!

Since four out of the original five neighbors/enemies: Heathcliff, Hindley, Catherine, Isabella, and Edgar – have died, Heathcliff takes in their kids.  He corrupts Hindley’s child into an uneducated, swearing young man.  As if that isn’t enough, his nice, foolish, and pretty wife Isabella raised her son away from his abuse until she DIED (of course).  Therefore, Heathcliff makes a total jerk out of her mild pansy of a son, Linton, eventually forcing sweet little Cathy to marry his vile offspring.  Oh yeah, and Linton Heathcliff – guess what – DIES – a few days later.

{That sounds a little harsh, but adjectives can help me prove my point.} 😉

The part I did like was the happy ending – Catherine (jr) and Hareton make a sweet match and Heathcliff – you guessed it – DIES. 😛

Well, yeah.  That also sounded harsh.

So, now that you’ve got a taste of both sides of the coin, you can try this gothic drama out!   (or if you feel like a shortcut, just read some reviews) XD

This is Em, I’m Kat, and this has been our first book club!
