Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

Wuthering Heights : ★★★★☆

“He’s more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”
Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

This book was part of the book club project with my best friend Nhi, and we both came to the conclusion that we loved it. And the Why we loved might be different. Why I love this book is the fact that the characters are the perfect imperfect anti-heroes. Yes, you have read it right. These characters are not the typical characters in classics like Jane Austen or Charlotte Bronte. And that is exactly why I admire this book so much it hurts my own feelings.  The fact that Emily Bronte can picture the ugliest, unlikable, monstruous, irrationnal, self-absorbed people in the world and make us realize that no matter how perfect a person appears to be, there’s always a flaw in them. It’s just a matter of time. a matter of circumstance.  A dark novel that deals with some very complicated situations.


There are two  completely different opinions on this novel, there are people who hate it. Like hate hate. Can’t support this book no matter how hard they try and others just love it. This is why I don’t recommend this to everybody. This is not the typical cheerful  journey nor an escape from reality. This is for the ones who enjoy good litterature, I mean old classics with a twist end to the characters where you have to see beauty in the ugly.  If you read this book with the hope it will get better, it won’t. If you’re looking for a happy ending, there is none.

    I JUST LOVE WHAT I JUST READ LADY, WHY YOU ROCKING SO MUCH ?? HAHA ❤ I think I love the book even more after sharing my opinions with you because I totally agree with what you think of this amazing work of art. Not every love story has that fairy-tale-like ending and it's not because you love that you're loving the right way. Rather than the heroes (if you can call them so), I think that what stood out the most of this story are those strong up-and-down emotions that Bronte made us go through. Absolutely loved it. ❤ For the interested, I found the 1998's film adaptation really well done. It depicts all the characters pretty well. Although some small details are missing, the essentials are there. AND another reason to watch it is because Hareton the hottie is played by the more-than-hottie Matthew Macfadyen (MR. DARCY !!) !!!! Yes man, eye candy !! XD

    How curious that we wrote similar blog posts so close together! (But of course it was Emily’s birthday last week, so around the world people’s minds would have turned to Wuthering Heights.) Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. Following you now! All the best with your reading and reviewing.
