Question of the Day!



So I saw this article: "Wuthering Heights Sales Soar after Twilight Revamp" And it has me thinking, is Wuthering Heights a fun book to read? I remember back to my Babysitter's Club book reading days, and the character Mary-Anne from that series loved Wuthering Heights. So, I bought the book, and I was probably around the age of 10, and I could not get into it. I tried it again a few years ago, after buying a copying that I though looked pretty, and once again it was hard for me to concentrate on it, and it didn't captivated me what-so-ever. So I'm asking all of you out there in SVC Land, is Wuthering Heights worth my time again? Is it a entertaining book to read? Who out there has read it and how do you feel about it? Or is it really one of those books that people read to say that they've read it, but don't really get past the first few pages or it still sits there on your book shelf wanting to be read at some point?

6 enjoyed the bouquet.:

I have never read the book. I always wondered since Twilight gave so much attention to it, if more people would be tempted to pick it up. I have a hard time reading books that are not written in present day. Or if they do take place in past tense, at least they were written TODAY lol.. does that make sense? I think that's why I had such a tough time in school reading books b/c I was bored with the classics. That's pretty awful to say, isn't it? lol

I own it. I've started it a few times in the oh, 8 years I've owned it, but I never got very far. i think I bought it in my "classics" phase, but it bored me. Maybe I will try again someday.

I had to read it for my undergrad program. Not my favorite :-/

I read it in one of my English classes in High School and I really did not like it at all. That was 10 years ago, so maybe I would like it more now, but I remember it was a complete bore back then!

I read it a few years back (I was between the ages of 8-11) and it was one of those books you have to really read between the lines. I remember it starts really slow but sort of picks up. It took me almost 2 monthes to read (seeing as it was interupted every time my dad gave me a new Terry Brooks book) and it wasn't exciting, but it wasn't boring for me either.
