"Not your typical romance"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This story is morbid. A somewhat twisted romance. I find it hard to like anything about Catherine Earnshaw, she was a thoughtless and selfish character and I actually thought her quite annoying. I don't understand how Edgar Linton could fall in love with her after seeing some of her strange behaviours. Yet I find the story redeems itself towards the end in the characters of Catherine's dau­ghter Catherine (Cathy) and Hindley's son Hareton, who despite their parentage or upbringing seemed to be the undoing of all their parents wrongs. Heathcliffe is a dark character, he's harsh and cruel and yet in some ways you do feel sorry for him. Yet his oppressiveness and relentless hatred of all things good and nice and his drive to destroy leave you wanting someone to stand up to him and bring him down. The bonding between Cathy and Hareton was the best part of the whole story. Cathy learned to put aside her pride and hautiness and Hareton learned to become less brutish. They were the opposite of Catherine and Heathcliffe's re­lationship, who only seemed to bring out the worst in eachother. A good read but out of the 3 most well known Bronte sisters books, between The Tenant of wildfell Hall, Jane Eyre, and this story, I would rank this my least favourite of the 3.

Description

HarperCollins is proud to present its range of best-loved, essential classics. `Is Mr. Heathcliff a man? If so, is he mad? And if not, is he a devil?'Set on the bleak moors of Yorkshire, Lockwood is forced to seek shelter at Wuthering Heights, the home of his new landlord, Heathcliff. The intense and wildly passionate Heathcliff tells the story of his life, his all-consuming love for Catherine Earnshaw and the doomed outcome of that relationship, leading to his revenge.Poetic, complex and grand in its scope, Emily Bronte's masterpiece is considered one of the most unique gothic novels of its time.

Author Biography

Emily Bronte (1818-1848) was an English novelist and poet, best remembered for her only novel, Wuthering Heights. The novel's violence and passion shocked the Victorian public and led to the belief that it was written by a man. Although Emily died young (at the age of 30), her sole complete work is now considered a masterpiece of English literature.
