You'll be burning the midnight oil to discover the tortured tales of the inhabitants of Wuthering Heights.

Discover a passionate tale of love lost, found, and avenged in Wuthering Heights. Lockwood, a wealthy man from England, rents a house from an eccentric gentleman named Heathcliff, who is the tortured master of Wuthering Heights.

The unconventional relationships and complex story structure will keep you turning pages long into the night.
Emily Bronte, the sister of Charlotte, shared the same isolated childhood on the Yorkshire moors. Emily, however, seems to have been much more affected by the eerie desolation of the moors than was Charlotte. Her one novel, Wuthering Heights (1847), draws much of its power from its setting in that desolate landscape. Emily's work is al...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone's ridiculous but its really funny MOVE OVER SHAKESPEARE'S ROMEO AND JULIET, it's time for heathcliff the edgy emo drama kid. This was such a fun ride in my mundane university life so thanks Emily for popping this one out the oven. I felt like I learned a lot about how painfully dangerous unhealthy forms of love are from this book and I didnt feel miserable afterwords so, its a favourite of mine now

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely loved it While I was reading it, it immediately became one of my new favourites. While the subject of love has a pretty big impact on the novel, it isn't a love story. I would say its more a story of revenge. The characters are absolutely twisted, and even though they are nowhere close to likable, that's the reason Wuthering Heights is so hard to put down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A masterpiece This is not a love story. I cannot emphasize this often enough: This is not a love story. Most of the negative reviews I've seen of Bronte's masterpiece expected to find a compelling love story of innocent, lovable characters and were disappointed to find something quite different. This is for everyone who loves twisted personalities, dark themes, and depressing relationships. This is for everyone who loves hating the characters in a book. There's so much going on in Wuthering Heights, and I love every page of it. One of my absolute favourite classics.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as good! Wuthering Heights is a good book when it's read with the other Bronte books. On its own, it's a bit of cliche and exaggeration which gets too dramatic at times.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wuthering Heights Definitely not easy to get into, and not the most likable group of characters, but if you can stick with it, Catherine and Heathcliff’s twisted, unhealthy obsession for one another is kind of fascinating. #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was a fascinating read. I began reading this classic thinking it would be much different than it is.That being said... I did enjoy the style of writing very much. The story, though not endearing to ,e in this day and age, had me hooked. I had to read to the end to see the outcome.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Couldn't get through it I tried really hard to like it but I couldn't get through it. It was boring and hard to read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Classic! *some spoilers* I really enjoyed this book. I'll have to admit, though, that I had to read most of it with the accompaniment of the audiobook version because I felt some parts were quite slow and some characters were hard to like *cough* Joseph *cough*. It's a tale of a relentless love that exceeds the physical world and all those affected by it. Lots of death (though I don't think that was too uncommon in those days) and struggles with love. I really like that the book was told from Nelly's narrative; I think that gave it a nice touch and I can't imagine it being told any other way. I'm happy with the way it ended - I found the ending quite melancholy (typical of the Bronte sisters) and I would recommend this book to anyone looking to read a good classic! #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but sad I picked this up wanting to read a classic. It is well written, and paints a vivid picture. I was expecting a love story, however, and I think that's a bit of a stretch. While there is a love story, it was a lot more somber than I imagined. This book is not something you read to lift your spirit!
