Wuthering Heights Bookworms review

I've just finished my second book from my list.
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.
I enjoyed this book very much. It's not what I expected at all.
Being partial to the classics, I enjoyed it and actually got through it quickly. For some reason, I expected this book to be like "Gone With the Wind'...I was so wrong.

Anyway, what is 'Wuthering Heights'? It's a house. With a name like 'wuthering' (which I can't find in the dictionary by the way) I expected this to be a romance novel. Supposedly 'wuthering' is a Yorkshire word that refers to turbulent weather.

I kept hearing this is a 'gothic romance'. It is dark and gothic. It is a love story, but not just that. It's about death and revenge as well.

I really like Wuthering Heights. It is a dark book, though.

You should see the movie with Ralph Fiennes and Juliette Binoche. Very well done.
