Wuthering Heights Attempt 1

In the car on the way home from vacation last week, I started Wuthering Heights. I read two chapters and closed it in disgust. Is the narrator supposed to be stupid? I guess my exposure to that time period is mainly through Jane Austen books, where they’re all gentry and therefore polite and formal. Even Mrs. Bennet has enough sense to request her husband to introduce her to Mr. Bingley before going to meet him. You’re not supposed to show up unannounced. You simply aren’t. And the other guy wasn’t very appealing either. Don’t remember his name, but I know he’s really famous. I was curious about his character. He seemed interesting. But it was all just so cringe . . .

  1. Wuthering Heights is a hard book. It took me a while to get through it and I probably never will read it again. Because it’s in the lexicon, I encourage you to try to finish. I speed read it. πŸ˜› There are some very tortured people in this book. I believe it belongs to a time and an age but am open to someone trying to explain it differently.
