    I need some classification here..
    This has semi been a challenging book, it has been very intriguing like a soap Oprah back in the 1800's. But I'm having trouble following what's happening..


    ***SPOILER****







    When exactly was Catherine's infant born? When she was unconsciousness?

    It was a couple of years ago since i read it so might be wrong but didnt Catherine have her baby just before she died? I dont remember the unconscious bit.

    Yeah apparently she gives birth before she dies. But they never mention she's with child at all.
    Just that in the future her child is like her. So I'm waiting to hear the news when she becomes pregnant, and how that roller coaster turns out, considering she haggard and malnourished.

    But she just faints in heathcliffs and that night BOOM! There's a baby.

    I'm sure C-section was not a procedure back in the 1800's

    **:star5:**

    I don't normally give five stars but this piece of work was outstanding.
    At times it may have been confused, once i got used to the writing I was engrossed, and enchanted by the story.

    The love and chemistry was outright phenomenal than any love story I've read. Was not predictable, nor cliche.
    Mostly it pained me to read the outcome of these stories, it wasn't deserved, the authenticity was so realistic I yearned for their happiness.

    I cried! Very rarely do I cry when a character dies... Brilliant!

    Are you a fan of watching movies after you read the book? After I finished the book i rented Wuthering heights 1970 and 2014. I have my pros and cons about each one.

    Yes, I adore comparing them after reading. Although, I didn't bother with the Wuthering heights films, however, I did watch the TV series (maybe because Tom Hardy plays Heathcliffe). It was ok but nothing in comparison to the book!

    Hello, forgive me for intruding without introduction, but the title caught my eye. I love classical fiction and "Wuthering Heights" is one of the early reads that planted the seed for me. At times I enjoy searching for the movie after reading a book - though I am a bit leery of modern American attempts because there seems to be a tendency to "reinterpret" the work in an effort to appeal to modern audiences. My favorite representation of this particular work was the 1992 movie staring Ralph Fiennes -

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0104181/

    IMHO - the best by far to date.

    Thanks for letting me share,
    W.
