Another gal hosted our Book Club last April for a “Spring-Like” and Wuthering Heights Book Club lunch and discussion.

EASTER DECOR

Easter Day was just around the corner, so her Faux Chocolate Bunnies greeted us in her foyer.  (I’m nuts about these foil bunnies of all shapes and sizes:)

THE BOOK

Wuthering Heights is considered a classic novel.  Years ago, it was often assigned as one of the required reads in a high school English class.

In our Book Club discussion of this book, we found ourselves wondering why this was.  None of us enjoyed reading this book.  We found the book violent, dark, and disliked the characters.  Several characters were just downright nasty.  Hardly a love story as some consider it.

Upon further research about Wuthering Heights afterwards, I discovered it was seen by some as a pioneering text of the Gothic genre.  Also, one reason may be Wuthering Heights might be considered a classic, is Emily Brontë died young and this was the only novel she published adding to the novel’s mystique.  (Makes sense.)
