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.

Wuthering Heights Characters Names in 한글/Korean (Reading Practice)

Because why not. I figure this can be a short 한글 lesson (specifically regarding Konglish) and could make good reading practice for beginners. Konglish always trips me up. Wuthering Heights is my absolute favorite book. All the characters are awful and you don’t read it to support the characters; you read it to see whatContinue reading “Wuthering Heights Characters Names in 한글/Korean (Reading Practice)”
