Ditto. I think it's interesting for non-loving-Heathcliff reasons, but the people who go on about how great he is baffle me a bit - he's a total menace, and that's rather the point of the novel.

I felt the same until the last chapter or so when we got Jekyll/Hyde's perspective re: twin demons inside the self. That made the story for me. It was so interesting!

Like with Twilight, I'm glad I read them so now I can explain why I dislike them.
Haha, I feel exactly the same way. (About the same book too)
