Tenant of Wildfell Hall vs Party Shoes

It's depressing to be sitting in the sunshine reading a book as morose as The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and to realize I empathize so much with the protagonist ("Oh yes, I know just how that feels!"). I probably ought to stick with lightweight stuff if I want to cure my head of its ills. Unfortunately I left Noel Streatfield's "Party Shoes" at homem because I wanted to push myself a little harder to read some literature instead of good, healthy fluff.

 

And with that, I'm off to see a play about having a stroke.

Wow... I don't think I ever hated a book as much as I hated the Tenant of Wildfell Hall. By the protagonist do you mean Gilbert or Helen... I had next to no sympathy for her I'm afraid, she was just unbearable.

Gilbert. The guy just smashed somebody in the face and justified it to himself. He's like a bad temper incarnate. No sense of perspective. I'm guessing from what you have to say about Helen they probably really deserve each other.

Heh... from Gilbert, Helen and Arthur, Gilbert is the nearest to sane... the other two are a long bus ride away from normal.
