Wuthering Heights

Wuthering Heights Summary

An Apple Books Classic edition.

If you’ve only ever seen Wuthering Heights on screen, you may have an image of Catherine and Heathcliff as the ultimate star-crossed lovers. But that’s just scratching the surface of this iconic Gothic romance. Emily Brontë’s only novel is an unabashedly dark tale of passion and revenge that created shockwaves upon its publication in 1847.

Without spoiling too much, the original Heathcliff is breathtakingly vengeful, cruel, and possessive, not the deeply misunderstood romantic hero of some adaptations. And Brontë’s story does not end happily ever after. After tragedy strikes, Heathcliff haunts the swirling mists of the Yorkshire moors, consumed with possessing a ghost. A must-read for fans of Gothic literature, this novel will appeal to anyone who loves a creepy story.

To whoever said the Bella and Edward thing as one of the first reviews let me be the first to say OK BOOMER. The classics are for everyone so shut it.55

Very good read...4 star

Having read many Dickens classics, I was familiar with the style of Bronte’s writing. I admit to being hooked on this work from page 1, when Lockwood first meets Heathcliff. Wonderful story from an author whose career ended too soon.45

Wuthering Heights5 star

I can’t imagine that the author after writing such a rich and descriptive story didn’t write again. Her work is rich in detail both in characters personally and their environment. The author made you feel the moors, walk the hills and smell the wind. Then feel the revenge that Heathcliff imposed on the innocent characters of this book. A truly great story that should be required reading to every young person everywhere. A great study in a defective personality, and to analyze on what lead to Heathcliffs self destruction.55

What I Thought4 star

I really liked Wuthering Heights. It was recommended to me by someone who knows what they are talking about when it comes to books, and they loved it. It took me a little while to get into it at first, but about halfway through the book, I really got into it. I recommend this to anyone who likes Victorian novels, and tragic love affairs.45

This was a really good, enjoyable book. It was quite sad, but I couldn't put it down. Definitely would recommend it and don't regret reading it at all! :)45

Wuthering Heights1 star

A dark ominous book that was filled with selfish, unforgiving, vengeful, hate filled, loveless characters. I read on thinking there has got to be a hero somewhere. There has to be some hope or forgiveness in the lives of these characters. Catherine Linton Heathcliff was probably the closest to being the heroine. But still a character motivated out of sheer selfishness. This was a story that truly depicts how the lack of love, grace, or forgiveness in ones life leads to jealous murderous hatred that destroys lives. Not a book that I would recommend to anyone despite the reputation of the author as a classic literary author.15

A GREAT book5 star

It' like 7 years since i red the book, but i still compare al the books to this one. It did impress me a LOT. About human nature, betrayal, money, love, hope (your hope for a happy ending) it's all in this book.55

Nothing to rave about2 star

I have, at my age, read thousands of books. I love period pieces and often find myself using a word or phrase from old English, Irish or Scotish, much to the confusion of family. I finally decided to pick up Wuthering Heights, never having had occasion to read it but knowing it is considered a classic. Having read it, I can't for the life of me understand why! I must say that I am quite disappointed. I always imagined it to be some great love story that ended in tragedy. It is in fact a tale of love, but a love grown out of selfishness, rebellion, abuse and great dysfunction. Had I any clue, I would have left it on the shelf and my imagination intact.25
