“Wuthering Heights” is totally different than what I thought it would be. This book is definitely not your typical “Pride & Prejudice” romance but more like multiple tragic love stories. It’s the story of Cathrine and Heathcliff, two stubborn, selfish people with bad tempers who are in love but marry other people anyways. This makes everyone around them, including themselves, completely miserable. While the plot itself may not be terribly exciting, the characters themselves kept me reading. I hated them all for all the horrible things they did, yet I loved them all at the same time and I continually wanted to find out what each was going to do next. A wonderful read, but probably not for everyone.
