March Reading 22

Wuthering Heights
Emily Bronte

I don't even know how to classify this, I guess the best way is the most fucked up love story ever. The oddest characters ever, but very well written. Catherine love's Heathcliff, Heathcliff loves Catherine, but Catherine also kinda loves Edgar. Heathcliff marrys Isabella, Catherine dies while giving birth to Cathy, Heathcliff still love's Catherine and hate's Edgar, Isabella dies, Heathcliff gain's a Son, Linton. Cathy loves Linton, Heathcliff hate's Linton and Cathy, Heathcliff forces Linton and Cathy to get married, Linton Dies, Edgar dies, Cathy hates everything, Heathcliff hates everything that isn't the idea of Catherine, shit goes down, Cathy hates Hearton, Cathy loves Hearton, Heathcliff dies, Everyone lives happily ever after?

The decisions of the National Assembly, How the Parisians and people in the country felt of the Kings flight, ending of course with the death of everyone. Not exactly light reading, but interesting.
