Wuthering Heights (Splinter Edition)

Although it has been a few years since I read Wuthering Heights, re-reading the book has me remembering the first time I read it quite fondly.

Sure, there are angst-ridden moments in the book that could, in some ways, leave the reader with an "Oh, come on" sort of feeling, but overall the writing fits the time period.

I liked it as much this time around as the first time I read it. I like the moodiness of the setting, the drama of the relationship between Heathcliff and Catherine, the tragedy that keeps building on itself, the little slice of happiness that Catherine finds with Edgar Linton. The above-mentioned angst-ridden moments are another reason I also liked the book.

Wuthering Heights may not be to everyone's tastes for various reasons, but it is a good book that has been a reading staple for many years and will be around for many more.
