Treadmill Theater: Trudging Through the Classics #4 - Wuthering Heights (part 1)
Wuthering is a regional term, meaning "stormy".

Here's my suggestion. When it's stormy outside, stay indoors. If your beloved has left, running across the moors, stay indoors. If you think you heard a noise by the old cabins, stay indoors. If you think a moonlit skinny dip IN THE STORM is a good idea, no, no, no, stay indoors.

You'll catch your death of cold. Or worse.

Never saw the movie and dunno if anything could ever induce me to.

Part of the reason for this: we did the novel in English class, and of all the books I ever took in English, it was the only one I could not read, I despised it so much. That was the one time I took copious notes in class and studied from them for the test, instead of studying the book.

I figure if the novel was tougher slogging than any other book ever, chances of me enjoying anything about the film are virtually nil.

For me, this was Jude the Obscure.

Yep, I could hack even Thomas Hardy more than I could hack Wuthering Heights. (For us it was The Mayor of Casterbridge, and I read the whole thing...)

My uncle hung me on a hook once, Johnny. Once.
