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