Most important books: Jasper Fforde

Jasper Fforde told Newsweek about his five most important books.

And one book that is not so important to him:

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë. I had thought it was deep and full of painful unrequited love, but on rereading I think it's a bunch of very drippy people who accept being bullied for no very good reason.
Read more about Jasper Fforde's five most important books.

Fforde's new novel, Thursday Next: First Among Sequels, releases this summer.

For another view of Wuthering Heights, see the entry on the Emily Brontë novel at the Page 99 Test.
