Great Book

a pretty good classic book

Better than I expected!

I read this for book club, which was great as I have often thought that I should take the time to go back and read more "classics." Wuthering Heights worried me, though. My memory of it from high school English class was of absolute drudgery and boredom.

Luckily, this was FAR more readable than I remembered. I had to pay attention, but it wasn't the slog I was concerned about. There is enough action and interaction to pull the story forward, and the cast of characters are well developed.

But in the end, I still largely didn't CARE. It occurred to me along the way to wonder, "If this story was set on a space station, would I like it better?" (as much of my reading is SF/F). I vaguely think yes, and finally figured out why. Stories set in the future are really always trying to tell us something about NOW. Books that were written so far in the past tell me about THEN, which is not a time I care so very much about.

Still, I'd like to work a few more classics back into my reading list... if I can ever make the time beyond the bookscape already on my To Read shelf and list!

I don't like this book. I read it in highschool and didn't like it. Then I read it again to see if maybe I was just too young, and nope...I still hated it. It's like reading a soap opera in the 17th century. Yuck
