Follow Friday is hosted by Alison Can Read and this week's question is:
Q: Activity! Dreamcast your current read.
Yaaaaay, so excited. Oh wait, casting 'Wuthering Height's is going to be difficult!!! The characters are so complex and difficult. And they reflect so much more than just the characters
For Cathy I would choose Amber Heard. She is gorgeous and I think she's be able to deal with the slightly psychotic side of Cathy.
For Heathcliff I would go for Michael Fassbender. He was pretty good as Mr. Rochester, who I sort fo see as a tamed down version of Heathcliff. But then there is the age gap that might make this pairing a bit off. Oh well.
For Linton, Cathy's husband, I might go for Michael Pitt. He would be such a contrast to Michael Fassbender and he looks slightly scared ont he picture below, which would be necessary in the movie.
This week, I chose Emily Bronte's 'Wuthering Heights' because I am currently rereading it and have, again, absolutely fallen in love with it. There is something about Heathcliff and Cathy that is immensely interesting and fascinating. Emily Bronte is my favourite Bronte, much better than Charlotte Bronte, if you ask me.
Anyways, Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader and Friday 56 is hosted by Freda's Voice.
1801. - I have just returned from a visit to my landlord - the solitary neighbour that I shall be troubled with. This is certainly a beautiful country! In all England, I do not believe that I could have fixed on a situation so completely removed from the stir of society. A perfect misanthropist’s heaven: and Mr. Heathcliff and I are such a suitable pair to divide the desolation between us. A capital fellow!The book is narrated in the beginning by Lockwood, who travels to the countryside to escape people. The solitary neighbour, Mr Heathcliff, is actually everything but a 'capital fellow' and Lockwood's inability to see this leads to some rather amusing, but also distressing, moments in the book.
'He threw himself into a chair, laughing and groaning, and bid them all stand off, for he was nearly killed - he would not have such another walk for the three kingdoms.'
Cathy's father has just returned from a journey and in itself it is a rather insignificant line, but I love the way it is written.
So, how about you? Who have you decided on for your casting?
