I just finished reading the book and watching the 2011 version of the movie. This was actually my second experience with the book; I tried reading it when I was much younger and couldn't get through the first few chapters. After watching the movie, I decided to give the book another go.

I wanted to open up a discussion about the book just to see what people liked and disliked about it. And the movie too if you would like to talk about that!

I Like the 2009 (?) movie with Tom Hardy, but not the 2011 version because Heathcliff seemed mindless and overly cruel.
However, I haven't read the book so I can't compare. I can say that the 2009 movie was great and very touching though. It focuses on the tragic love!

Oh in the book he is very cruel! So I thought the 2011 version was pretty accurate.

Hm, he is cruel towards Katherine in the 2009 version, but in the other movie the scene with the puppy shocked me :(.

I know! I actually watched it before reading the book so I was just like "What is he doing?!"
