Wuthering Heights...the book version

Is absolutely entirely and completely difficult to read! SO confusing! I went to cliffsnotes.com tonight and read through the summary and commentary so that when I try to pick it up again, maybe it will make more sense. It is crazy that I have read two complete Bronte books in the past ten days or so, one of them being Jane Eyre (500+pages!) and this one has me stumped. Has anyone else who has read this had as hard a time with it as me?!

I have never finished it. It depresses me greatly - all that angst, and unrequited love and basically insanity. Perhaps I should try again, but Wuthering Heights has always just made me sad when I try to read it.

It is a hard book to read. I picked it for my book club last year and I thought they all were going to kill me! We all made it through somehow and decided it was worth it in the end. . . even if it was just to decide that Heathcliff is a physcopath and not a romantic hero!
