Wuthering Heights

Wuthering Heights Summary

Outside the strange and bleak manor Wuthering Heights, overlooking the Yorkshire moors, the ghost of a young woman stands at the window, wanting to be let in....
Considered scandalous, shocking, and inappropriate by its Victorian readers; this novel is now considered an undeniable classic. It is the story of Heathcliff, a fascinating, romantic, monstrous, impossible-to-define character – too sadistic to be a hero, yet too engaging to be a villain. It is a story of a love affair, social class structure, and strife between nature and culture. It is a sophisticated, grotesque, and brilliant Gothic masterpiece.

I had to read this book because my daughter is doing it for English Literature exams. I struggled to get into it initially, but after the first two difficult chapters is really became compelling. It's written eloquently in an old English early 19th century style; the behaviour of the characters would have certainly been quite shocking to the audience of the day and the social prejudice possibly offensive to modern audiences. A perfect classic; I will certainly be reading more Brontë books by the other sisters if this one is anything to judge by.55

I've no comment on the book, for what can I add, however, I must comment on this free edition. There are large sections that are set in italics for no apparent reason. There are also a few typos. Probably it would be worth a couple dollars to avoid these annoyances.25
