Hi Penelope . . . I see you're a couple years younger than me.
I'm just curious which post of mine you were responding to here.
I liked Wuthering Heights - liked the movie too - a good old fashioned romance.
Did I say I didn't like it? If so, I must have had it mixed up with something else.
Well, at our age, we've got a lot of books under our belts.
This one here? I don't remember doing it in school - not even in the adult education credits I took in the 90's.
I think I mentioned that we had to do Lord of the Flies when I did a lit/comp course at Burnhamthorpe Collegiate - grade 10/11 credits.
I had my high school credits, but got most of it by going to a business college for 9 months.
Enjoyed school a lot more, as an adult, than I did as a teen.
I don't really care for this book so far - very wordy - unnecessarily wordy, IMO, but a lot of old books are like that.
Doesn't matter what the teachers tell us is good literature, if I don't like a book, I don't want to read it.
I'm going to read this one to the last chapter and if I'm still not interested, I'm closing it.
I find it kinda' depressing - maybe it's because I get particularly ticked off at the way our white ancestors just moved on into places and 'colonized'.
I won't enlarge upon that thought, for fear I'll be on my soapbox, boring everybody with my political/social views.
