Wuthering Heights (Barnes & Noble Classics Series)

Wuthering Heights - Emily Brontë, Daphne Merkin In preparation for the essay I must write on this book for my AP English class, I thought writing my review first would help warm up the creative juices (and I also might be sick of this novel by the time I finish this essay and find myself unable to write the review, hahah). I really enjoyed this novel, which I don’t find surprising–this time period was truly a great one for classic novels, and although I haven’t read anything from the Brontë sisters in the past, I knew I was going to love this! It wasn’t exactly everything I thought it would be, but I enjoyed it all the same. I found the characters intriguing, and all the thinking I’ve had to do with the character development (me essay is on why Heathcliff is an emotional vampire, hah!), being able to think about it and gain more insight to the characters than I would have reading it outside of class has helped me enjoy it even more. The narrators both bothered me immensely as characters, but I appreciated the (mostly) unbiased point of view the story was told from. All in all, definitely a great read, and a classic to be treasured!(Meanwhile, while I write this review, I’ll be trying to think of a witty opening line for my essay. Hmm…)Read more?
