This book is so very dark,Emily sure chose the moors as a suitable place for so much heavy brooding and deep-seated violence. I feel she was ahead of her time as the first classic tale of child abuse and domestic violence. That the children and women in this tale have no recourse for justice,that other characters are content to sit back and watch the unfolding tragedies is a reflection,not only of her society,but of our own today. I loved it! Her imagery is enough to let you feel the cold,cruel wind and the bitter,twisted hearts that do as they must. The violence is perpetuated as we see,down through the generations. Still,the blame must lay with the old Mr.Earnshaw. Wish Emily had enlightened us a little more about his relationship with his wife,whether he beat her,too or simply the children. God forbid that children were raised like that as a common day occurrence!
The book is about a juicy love story between many people. Catherine's love to every member of the male gender is ridiculous. The characters' relations to each other are undefined. There are too many narrator shifts in the middle of the story. If you like romance (this one doesn't get to specific about the relationships), then this is the book for you. But if you like action and something that progresses fast, you probably won't like the book.
I really enjoyed reading this book (it was a good exercise in my vocabulary!), but it made no sense!! How can a gypsy boy be soulmates with a young patrician girl? Why doesn't he succeed? What is Bronte trying to tell us? Frankly, I was frustrated trying to decipher the meaning of this novel. I was required to read it for an English course, and I would not read it again because it is so frustrating!
I think this book should be burned. It sucked
