Wuthering Heights

Let me just say first that I haven't read this yet, just seen the Masterpiece Classic on PBS. I've got it on hold at the library as we speak (read?)

I've noticed in the past as well as recently that the classics are just that. There is a reason that they have sustained long lives. I've read several "classics" and most of them really tell a wonderful tale. Deep, insightful, clear... anyway...

Like I said I got to watch Wuthering Heights and it really touched me. Usually I can do without movies made from books. There are exceptions (as with most rules), but this was beautiful. I think I might have a hard time reading this book due to the pouring forth of tears, but I'm going to try anyway. As long as the language is easier to get through than Dickens, I think I'll be okay. (yeah, I know I'm a blasphemer - You don't like Dickens? - Whatever)

So, I guess as soon as I get this finished I'll bore you all with what I think about it, without telling you too much at all about the story itself. Cause that would just be too easy.

Anyway... are there any books that caught your interest because you saw the movie?

I burned a DVD of this movie. Tears are good for a movie. Titanic makes me cry every time I see it. Must be on #50 by now.
You would like Jane Eyre...movie and book. Book came first of course.

Wuthering Heights is amazing...it will be my favorite book forever. I don't think I've read another book that compares. I haven't seen the movie though! Have you read the Twilight series? The MC makes references to Wuthering Heights quite a bit...
