Sept. 24 1996 Dover Thrift Editions
Classic novel of consuming passions, played out against the lonely moors of northern England, recounts the turbulent and tempestuous love story of Cathy and Heathcliff. A masterpiece of imaginative fiction, the story remains as poignant and compelling today as it was when first published in 1847.

4.0 out of 5 stars Romantic no moor Jan. 1 2013
By Chris
Format:Paperback
Based on references in books like "Twilight," I thought "Wuthering Heights" was going to be a romantic read, something similar to Jane Austen. What a misconception! The residents of Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange were the most miserable population of characters since (before) "Valley of The Dolls"! All that gloom, all that inbreeding! Five names shared by ten people! Still, I enjoyed Bronte's writing; I liked the atmosphere. And I liked Heathcliff, his volatility, though I don't consider him a romantic hero.

By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Wuthering Heights is a surprisingly modern novel given that its authorship predates our modern understanding of psychology. Like many modern novels, Ms. Bronte has also explored the darker side of human passions and psyches more thoroughly than the sunnier side. Heathcliff will remind you of classic characters whose lives were twisted by fate like Captain Ahab in Moby Dick, Erik in Phantom of the Opera, Quasimodo in The Hunchback of Notre-Dame, and the mysterious prisoner in The Man in the Iron Mask.

If there were ever two star-crossed lovers who have captured the world's imagination since Romeo and Juliet, they must be Catherine and Heathcliff. Yet, unlike, many such pairs, their unhappiness is heavily influenced by themselves.

As you contemplate their story, you are constantly drawn to the thought, "what if" thus and such had occurred differently? That's part of the great power of the story because it has so many unexpected twistings and turnings. A reader's expectations from a love story are turned upside down, sideways and diagonal from where those expectations normally rest. As a result, you'll probably decide this isn't a love story after all . . . but a tragedy. Taken from that perspective, you'll find yourself hearing echoes of Lady Macbeth and King Lear as you contemplate what occurs when the natural order is disturbed. Few English authors since Shakespeare have captured that sense of what can happen when the universe is disarranged.

What's great about this story? It's pretty simple: Emotional intensity in the writing; deeply memorable characters; doomed lovers; and a haunting glimpse at unshakeable obsession.

What's not so great? The story development itself is pretty awkward.

4.0 out of 5 stars 19th Century British lifestyles June 27 2007
Format:Paperback
Emily Bronte's classic is a romantic, almost gothic tale about the elite lifestyles of the 19th century British upper class. This was E. Bronte's only novel. it is brilliant in its construction and quite entertaining. Issues of family, loyalty and destiny abound. I liked it and anyone serious about literature must read this book, but i have a feeling that this is one of those books that you'll either love or hate. My only criticism is that it can be confusing at times, but generally the slight ambivalence is far outwieghed by staggering depths. 19th century concepts of good and evil are very well brought out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly unique piece of writing!!! Jan. 10 2003
Format:Paperback
Wuthering Heights is one of oldest romance novels and stands as a classic in litterature history.
All through the book you will meet great contrasts that to a certain extent can explain the actions. Wuthering heights is the land of storm and wilderness compared to the quiet and more passive Thruscross Grange where one might think it's more appropriate for children to grow up. The Earnshaw family lives on Wuthering Heights while the Linton family is from Thruscross Grange. When those two contrasts meets with the children of these two families, the conflicts starts. Catherine and Heathcliff are drawn to eachother from the begining and their passion is powerful and destructive. There's love, hate and suffering, but written in a poetic somewhat advanced language and it's echanting how you get caught up with this book.
Sad is it that Emily Brontë died the year after its publication at the age of thirty... But with this novel and her poems, she is one of the most well known female English writers of the 18th century.
You will surely miss out on something great by not reading this book. I warmly recommend Wuthering Heights to everyone who loves to read. It is truly a unique piece of writing!
