Ok, everybody..don’t kill me for asking this, but I need some help with a summer project I’m working on.
I’ve enlisted a couple of friends to help me, but I thought I would see if by posting something this would get more responses.
I was Googling the ‘greatest love stories of all time’ and came back with ‘Wuthering Heights’ as number one. Of course, I’m sitting there thinking…WHAT? That’s got to be the absolute worst book of all time. I wouldn’t even call it a love story. Love turning into evil…that’s not a true love story. Why in the world would some great library say that love turning into evil is the greatest love story of all time?
Forget Romeo and Juliet.
Perhaps some guy thought ‘Wuthering Heights’ up just because he was obsessed with some chick that turned into a bad ending…and that’s why it hit #1 on the list.
So I’m not using ‘Wuthering Heights’ as a model this summer…thank you very much.
Let me explain what I’m looking for in this project…
I am looking for the most inspiring love stories in book or movie format…especially stories that talk about FATE/DESTINY. “Serendipity” with John Cusack is a good example for the movie category.
I’m starting on “Love in the Time of Cholera” later this week when I finish “Dreamers of the Day” (a historical novel based in 1918-1921 about the days of Lawrence of Arabia and Winston Churchill).
What books/movies inspired you and made you think that love was worth it all? Or books/movies that made you sigh thinking…WOW…
You can post the comment here or email me at: email@example.com.
And guys…come on, there’s got to be a good one out there for you. My brother swears by “Notting Hill.” Well, at least the soundtrack. 😉 And right after I wrote that…my brother calls me to ask me if he sounds like he’s high when he talks on the phone. Brothers…
