    I’ve always wanted to read The Monk, you’ll have to tell me what you thought of it.

      I’m a third of the way through Martin, and even though its not the most gripping story, it’s actually a very sexy read! It’s even more provocative than Madame Bovary. If you like Gothic/Classic literature in general, you’ll like this one anyway, so I do recommend it! 🙂

        I thought it was a horror story, but this sounds good too 😉

      • Nisha says:

        I thought it was too! LOL 😛 Unless the horror/supernatural element comes later, I’ll have to wait to find out!

        Martin, just a quick note to say that I strongly recommend this book(The Monk). I know I said it started off slow – indeed the first 150 pages were dead boring but it escalates to such a frenetic pace towards the end that it’s definitely worth the initial boredom. Oh, and it IS a tale of horror(supernatural) by the way. 😉

    (In response to Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights read during January/February 2012)

    I see your still reading Wuthering Heights, how are you finding it so far? 🙂

    • Nisha says:

      Oops, lol, I’m almost finished but if you think thats bad, I haven’t even reached half-way through Age of Miracles yet!
      I’m not a fan of Bronte’s writing style, I must be honest, but I do find Heathcliff’s character quite fascinating. For a book with such a sedated setting, there sure is a lot of drama!

      • beckyday6 says:

        I don’t really remember much about the writing style, but I don’t think I had a problem with it, although the start was kind of confusing because of the names Catherine and Cathy being too similar!
        Wuthering Heights is one of my fave’s, I love the tragedy of it all, so I hope you can get past the writing style and still enjoy the story 🙂

      • Nisha says:

        Yeah the Cathys were confusing but the Edgar Linton/Linton Heathcliff was even worse. Luckily my copy had a family tree with all the names of the characters but even then, it was still confusing.

        I’ll tweet you when I’m finished with the book. 🙂

    Haha yeah, I wonder it Bronte did that on purpose? I don’t know why she would….but surely she would have realised it would be confusing?
    A family tree in the book! Awwwhh man, that would have made my life so much easier! I actually wrote out my own family tree as I was reading it haha.
    Cool, I’ll be interested to see what you make of it 🙂
