If even am sure that you know that story of it as being mostly popular but I cant get enough of reading it more than one time. It is "Wuthering Heights" by Emily Bronte.

So much indulged into human conflicts, rivilary, compassion and floods of incontrollable emotions. Revenge and supernatural themes are so much adding to this revolutionary threads of Emily's ideas and feelings.

Its worth the time you dedicate it.

Libra.


Wuthering Heights - one of my all time favs.. heathcliff and catherine sizzle.
Badami's Can you hear the Nightbird call? is also way up there.

I tried Wuthering Heights, but didn't get past the first chapter. My attention kept wondering due to the long and complicated sentances, i need to be gripped from the get go


hmm, try "The Life of PI", "The Kite Runner", "The Notebook", "Can you hear the Nightbird call?", "Wide SArgasso Sea - awesome read.. esp if you have read Bronte's "Jane Eyre"

enjoy :)

I recently finished the "His Dark Materials Trilogy"(The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass) by Phillip Pullmanand was thoroughly entranced. If you enjoy good fantasy adventure I would highly recommend this series. And I always recommend "A Prayer for Owen Meany" by John Irving (not fantasy, more contemporary literature.)

Try reading so of Ray Bradbury's books, he's a great. Also the Chocolate War is good, I can't remember the name of the author.
