In this novel this tale portrays Catherine and Heathcliff, their all-encompassing love for one another, and how this unresolved passion eventually destroys them both, leading Heathcliff to shun and abuse society.
Book, better than movies.
No matter how, Wuthering Heights was superior with book medium to video/film medium. I first read this book in 1995 and watched movies. In the book, characters and sceneries are vivid, wild, and spectacular with lots of my personal imagination. At that time, I was not living in the United States of America. The land of U.S.A. in the book was untamed and wild enough. That was the beauty of this book. When I travelled lots of places in the U.S.A., only several parts of the land were less tamed (West and Southern America). Probably, books should be red throughout childhood and adolescents, rather mature adulthood.
I have to read this for school cri

What I Thought
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.
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! :)
By housewife loves sonos
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.
A GREAT book
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.
Nothing to rave about
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.
Very fun to read!!

It was a timeless story. It's no wonder it's a classic. Funny and smart. Tragic and beloved. It had was love and deception and death and truth. It as a memorable experience. Loved it.
Classic and amazing

This book is captivating and a great classic. But here's the thing, I don't like the characters, Catarina and Heathcliff see, both treacherous, but one of the reasons I love it is because they both choose to ignore the others sins and faults.
