Just wondering, because I’m going to start reading it next English lesson, and wondered what people thought about it.

God, I haven’t read that in years!
It was all right.
Not quite my style, but perfectly readable.

I read it years and years ago for English Lit. It was ok. Not my normal cup of tea, but as Boo said, readable. I think it has a really annoying ending, but I can’t remember it exactly…

Heretics, all of you. It’s an English classic and if you want i’ll go and photo graph Bronte’s grave for you cause it’s in the graveyard up the road from me. Although that’s got f*ck all to do with the book…. Is classic because of the use of language to set the scene, especially in the opening paragraph.

Eh, I didn’t really care for it much myself, but that was mainly because I thought it was too melodramatic.  It did have lots of vivid descriptive imagery.  Perhaps a bit too much, in fact.  I prefer Charlotte Bront

LOL
Spike Milligans version is even better. As is his Frankenstein. Oh, and his version of the Old Testament.

Semaphore Wuthering Heights? Classic!

Okay, read the first two chapters, and it uses the word ‘ejaculated’ alot. Thats about all I got. (yeah, I’m immature). Oh yeah, and miss said Heathcliff was like Aragorn (LOTR for the few who don’t know) so theres someone I understand. Or know what they look like. or whatever.

...Seems like its keeping your interest.  You can find it on tape…with Ralphe Fiennes as Heathcliff - it seemed to be the easiest to understand version.  It might also be the newest.  I kept getting confused with all the Cathys at first.  Then I thought there was more than one Heathcliff…and after I could figure out that some parts were sort of like history or flashbacks, I understood more of what was happening.
