Wuthering HeightsWuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A story of passionate love and fanatic revenge. So many people dislike a book because the characters portrayed in it are unlikeable! I cannot comprehend this judgment of a book being good or bad resting on the shoulders of the fictional characters and their likeability. For me, it is more intriguing to explore the prospects of dark characters and their emotions.Moreover, the crudeness of raw emotions and actions depicted in this book perhaps reflects the life and times of 1800 era.

I liked the way Emily Bronte has bounded the story in a subliminal explanation, that does seem unnecessary to some. However, (I reckon) it is employed consciously to the subconscious of readers to support the writer's description of events and surroundings. The tiresome details of surroundings not only make the story more vivid in reader's mind but also bolsters the state of affairs of the scene. Likewise, the contrast between the two households is a good symbolism and reflects the mood and culture of the bearer of the place.

The story and emotions in this book are not quite simple to be judged by a bare 'good' or 'bad' it reflects complications and hue of human emotions followed by fanatical/(or rather well thought off) cacoethes.The dynamics of the relationship in this book was unfit/unhealthy and yet exploring the relationship gone bad was interesting. I would restrain from disclosing more in an attempt to conceal the spoilers...

I enjoyed reading it.
