Book: Wuther­ing Heights

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - R14EVIEW -

This is a form of tor­ture. How is it pos­si­ble to pick one book? I’ll go back to the first book that made my legs buckle. I read Wuther­ing Heights in my teens and I blame it for the fact that I am sin­gle to­day. (I am jok­ing! Hon­estly!) The novel had a huge im­pact on my de­vel­op­ing ro­man­tic sen­si­bil­i­ties. I al­ways had a pen­chant for the his­tor­i­cal ro­man­tic novel, but this one was “art” and it swal­lowed me whole and spat me back out. I be­lieved in a half-crazed hunk of a man called Heath­cliff and wild head­strong Cathy, whose love tran­scended death.
