'Wuthering Heights' by Emily Brontë
June 24 - 27, 245 pages
I did it. I finally did it. Over the past two and a half years I have had three failed attempts at reading this book. I just could not get into it and eventually tossed it aside each time.
But I couldn't let it beat me.
I did start to get interested in the plot after one hundred or so pages but in no way was I hooked. I guess it just came down to the fact that deep down I didn't really care what happened to the characters. I didn't like any of them. Except maybe Nelly.
I am glad I read it, though. I can see why it's a classic. It is well-written and insightful. Complex and thorough.
I might have to take a break before embarking on more Brontë sisters' books though.
And at week twenty-six I am halfway through the year without missing a week yet!
