Will you still love me if I tell you how I really felt about this book? I hope so. Please don't bear me any ill thoughts after I express myself. Instead leave a comment and try to convince me that this book really should be a classic must read, that this book really is worth the time I invested in reading it!!!
I detested Heathcliff. There was nothing romantic in him. Nothing. I thought he was heartless and cruel. Cathy to me was insipid. That girl had no backbone whatsoever. If she wanted to marry Heathcliff then she should have. What I hated the most was that both of them married other people only to make their lives miserable. BRATS!!! If I was Linton I would've tossed Heathcliff over the cliffs..(little side joke) and be done with his intrusions into his home and life. Maybe if he had done that then Cathy's tantrums and her willing death upon herself might not have happened. Don't even get me started on trying to figure out what Joseph was saying!!!! Gibberish to me....was it a foreign language that I didn't know about? The only parts that I DID like was that the story was narrated by Ellen. I enjoyed that part of it. I also happened to like that the two offspring Hareton and Little Cathy end up together....they were perfect for each other. But what I enjoyed the most????? the final sentence which brought this excruciating read to an end.
