Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Publication Date: 1847
This started off good for me, and I thought I was going to really like it. But it just went more and more downhill as it went along. I hated every character, and didn't find it an enjoyable book to read. My copy of the book said "love never dies" on the front cover, which I found laughable, because I hardly felt affection from anyone towards anyone else, let alone love. I don't understand why this has been shelved so many times as a romance.
And I really hated every time Joseph spoke in the book. I don't like trying to decipher dialects while I'm reading, and have never thought it added to any story or made anything more authentic. Especially since this was supposedly being told from the point of view of other characters, and their memories of events. Did they do other characters accents while telling the story, then? I think not.
