                                                   My Best Reading Experience

Hi! How are you today? It's been a long time since I wrote something in this blog. So this time, I am going to publish something related to my best reading experience.

My best reading experience was a novel written by Emily Brontë: "Wuthering Heights". Have you read it? It is an amazing novel, I am sure you will like it. If you haven't read it, I provide you with a little summary:

"In 1801Lockwood, a wealthy young man from the South of England who is seeking peace and recuperation, rents Thrushcross Grange in Yorkshire. He visits his landlordHeathcliff, who lives in a remote moorland farmhouse, Wuthering Heights. There Lockwood finds an odd assemblage: Heathcliff seems to be a gentleman, but his manners are uncouth; the reserved mistress of the house is in her mid-teens; and a young man who seems to be a member of the family, yet dresses and speaks as if he is a servant.
Snowed in, Lockwood is grudgingly allowed to stay and is shown to a bedchamber where he notices books and graffiti left by a former inhabitant named Catherine. He falls asleep and has a nightmare in which he sees the ghostly Catherine trying to enter through the window. He cries out in fear, rousing Heathcliff, who rushes into the room. Lockwood is convinced that what he saw was real. Heathcliff, believing Lockwood to be right, examines the window and opens it, hoping to allow Catherine's spirit to enter. When nothing happens, Heathcliff shows Lockwood to his own bedroom and returns to keep watch at the window.
At sunrise, Heathcliff escorts Lockwood back to Thrushcross Grange. Lockwood asks the housekeeper, Nelly Dean, about the family at Wuthering Heights, and she tells him the tale."

Last year, I had to read the novel Wuthering Heights in the teacher training college. From the moment you start reading it, you experience a lot of different feelings. I remember that when I read it, I experienced two feelings : "love and hate". Heathcliff, the main character of this novel, was the only one to blame for my confused feelings. At some parts of the novel, he deserves to be loved and you can even feel pity for him and his life. However, there are some parts in which he behaves like a wild animal, he is full of anger and he is cruel to any person without caring anything.
I highly recommend this novel. But if you're a bit lazy, you can watch the movie. Here goes the link:
