Passionately moving, I wasn't sure if I'd like it or not, but after a slow start I was drawn into the book. It has a fantastic end paragraph which I adore and would post here, but for all the people who haven't had the pleasure of reading this classic, I'll refrain from doing so.

Wildcat,

It's a classic but don't hold it against Bronte; it's not her fault it's considered one. This might be the most dysfunctional fictional relationship of its time period. Once you get past the first few chapters, turning the pages becomes easier and easier just to see what these crazy people do next.

I've read a ton of 'classics' in my 18 years and this one is right up there. I personaly enjoyed it because of the spontanaity. It clearly describes human tendancies while suprising you at the same time.

Yeah, WH is definetly a classic, I loved it. It didn't seem like it was going to be my kind of book at first but I was just drawn into the lives of each character and when you go over it enough to spot the little metaphors and messages and things you can't help but regard it as a classic.
I'd strongly advise reading it.

Indeed it was, how to say...interesting to some extent. But for a woman who had a sheltered life. She sure knew alot about love.

I jsut suppose it goes to show the literary genius she was. As she can captivate such a passionate and raw emotion such as love, as well as rage. So maybe this book could have possibly reflected something we saw? Who knows? Or was she simply just insane?

Any how you look at it W.H is brilliant.

I really liked it. Didn't think I was going to like it.
