”’I’ve never seen anything like the two of you. The way you look at each other. It’s so intense it’s almost scary.’”Cathy and Heathcliff’s love was a fiery and unpredictable as a California wildfire. Their ‘love’, if you want to it that, was unpredictable and toxic, and not a relationship to emulate. It’s not love, it’s obsession. And yet in Catherine, not only did I get any fiery romantic feelings, the author made Catherine and Hence’s relationship far more romantic than it needed to be for it to be a true retelling. Catherine and Hence’s romance seemed almost out of a Disney movie compared to the novel. And if the whole point of the retelling was to capture the essence of the novel, it failed miserably.
”’We fit so perfectly. When we’re standing up, the top of my head comes to just below his chin, so he can rest his chin on my head.’”See what I mean? THIS IS NOT WUTHERING HEIGHTS OBSESSIVE, TOXIC LOVE Y’ALL. THIS IS AN OOEY GOOEY TEEN ROMANCE FROM THE DISNEY CHANNEL.
