Wuthering Heights Discussion Thread: TSR Book Club

Here is the discussion thread for one of our September choices: Emily Brontë's 'Wuthering Heights'.

Feel free to come and discuss how you are finding it etc whenever you fancy; I'm sure there will be people around to answer any questions/debate any issues you might have :smile:

Could spoiler tags please be used for any plot details until 30th September?

I only re-read this one a week ago so I'm pretty ready to discuss but I'd better wait for more people to buy/borrow/steal and read first :biggrin:
I will say that I did enjoy Wuthering Heights, it was a bit different to books I have read before.

Also need to learn how to do spoiler tags *newbie*:colondollar:

Welcome to TSR!
I've read it recently so for me it's still pretty fresh in my mind, for the moment anyway,
There are few things that could make book club boring, so I'm glad you found another.

Wuthering Heights is one of my favourite books, so if I come across as excessively passionate about it in any way, I apologise :tongue:

I actually first finished reading Wuthering Heights on this day, two years ago (I wrote it down in my diary). I absolutely loved it however, I can understand why some people would hate it. The characters of Catherine and Heathcliff are quite ... unique to say the least :biggrin: I personally think that they are the two most interesting characters out of any of the novels by the Bronte sisters.

Yes I agree! It's even possible to argue that there is not one likeable character in Wuthering Heights (and I would say there isn't) but each character is fascinating which is what made me love the book :smile:

I would certainly argue to this effect. :yep: Including, as seems to generally be overlooked, the characters of Nelly and Lockwood. I particularly disliked the former.

I have not read this book yet. Will do after my exams. :smile:

Nelly pissed me off so much when I read WH; bitch doesn't know her boundaries! (Of course I put this in a more sensible and articulate way in my exam :smile: ).

May I just say (completely off-topic) that your signature is rather wonderful :smile:
That is all.


On topic - I didn't find Nelly too bad.... Lockwood was more annoying for me.

:biggrin: Anything concerning The Great Gatsby will always be wonderful. You should check out Kate Beaton's site, the Jane Austen ones are very funny :smile:
