As I stated that my favorite author was Emily Bronte and the poor lady only wrote Wuthering Heights, it seems to follow that my favorite book from my favorite writer is ultimately Wuthering Heights. The story is ridiculously famous (and rightly so) so I won’t insult anyone’s intelligence with an all-encompassing description of the plot- suffice to say that Catherine and Heathcliff’s (what’s not to love about a guy call Heathcliff!) doomed romance always pulled at my heart strings. Possibly because there isn’t really a happy ending, contrary to many other stories in this era which, although they beat their characters up a bit, ultimately see them happy in the end. This story is full of suffering, grief and regret- which whilst more brutal, are much easier to relate to and thus much more endearing. And of course, because I feel the need to cast my lot into the age-old debate, I do consider Wuthering Heights to be a better book than Jane Eyre.
