There was so much wrong with this book, but I loved it anyway.

Neither out hero or heroine is emotionally or psychologically stable; one has lost her mother by methods at first untold, with the exception that she feels responsible. The other is introduced to us in the midst of a fever that has also caused him to have amnesia, except for some classic literature, deepening the mystery as he speaks only in verse and Shakespeare. Their love is so insta- that it's practically pre-, but if you know Wuthering Heights, you know why that is. Throw in a bit of magical realism and the slowly deteriorating sanity of our heroine, and watch everything unravel as expected.

When you first look, you think about Cat and Stonefield and think, "well, at least they're not as awful as Catherine and Heathcliff." But then a few numbened hours pass after your single-sitting reading and you think again. They are definitely nuanced, and even have better reasons for some of their decisions (sometimes), but can you really say that either is better?

I dunno.
