I adore Wuthering Heights. It isn’t a feel good book by any means, but its cathartic and engrossing as long as you aren’t one of those people who have to love and support a novel’s characters, because you definitely don’t love or even like these characters. But you read to see the horrific sequence of events that transpires and see everyone’s mistakes play out.
So I bought the Korean translation.
Here’s some vocab.
