Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

Wuthering Heights is a book I love to hate. There isn't a single character that has made good choices in their life and that is what makes this book interesting. One hears Wuthering Heights and assumes it is this beautiful love story. It might be for some people but to me it is a story about love destroying lives because characters are too afraid to face it. Wuthering Heights further removes the reader from the story with the second person point of view. It takes some getting used to but try to appreciate the beauty of Emily Bronte's writing and the challenge it is for an author to tell a history of two people when neither of those two characters are the ones telling the story. Wuthering Heights has unlikable characters and a difficult structure but is well worth the read. If only so the readers can learn from the mistakes of the characters and follow their hearts.
