Throwback Thursday

Thursday, April 8, 2010



Throwback Thursday – this is a weekly event hosted by me! It is the time each week to recognize those older books… an older book you’ve always wanted to read, or one that you have read and love; maybe one from your childhood; or review an older book -- how about even a classic! Leave a comment here and feel free to take an icon and use it on your blog!

This week's throwback is:

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
Publish date (original): 1847

From bn.com:
Set amid the wild and stormy Yorkshire moors, Wuthering Heights, an unpolished and devastating epic of childhood playmates who grow into soul mates, is widely regarded as the most original tale of thwarted desire and heartbreak in the English language.

I've read this one approximately 3-4 times. I have considered many books my favorite, but this is one of the ones I've always considered my absolute favorite. Unfortunately, there's still a lot I don't remember about it. I recently joined the read-a-long by Jill at Fizzy Thoughts so I will be re-reading this again and posting my thoughts here! I'm a little behind since I was supposed to have read the first 3 chapters by yesterday. No worries though... I started on yesterday's lunch break and read the first 2. So I'll be posting my thoughts soon!

O I absolutely LOVE Wuthering Heights! Fine choice :)

What a good choice. I think that Wuthering Heights is a novel that really stays with you. I forst read it when I was about 15 and was so haunted by it.

Happy Thursday

I read this one a few years ago and was surprised at how accessible it was. It was a great book, but all the character just seemed so angry and strange. I think I am going to have to reread this one soon. It had a wonderfully inventive plot. I know that it is a book that people have strong feelings about. They either love it or hate it, with not many falling inbetween.

Once again, I have an old crusty copy but have never read it. !

Juju -- me too!!

Hannah -- I first read this as an adult. I don't think I would have really gotten it at 15. It definitely stays with you though!

Zibilee -- a lot of people think of it as dark and gloomy and angry. And it is, haha, but I always thought of it more as passionate, if that makes sense, haha

michelle -- you definitely need to read this one!!
