Wuthering Heights is a wild, passionate story of the intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine's father. After Mr Earnshaw's death,

Heathcliff is bullied and humiliated by Catherine's brother Hindley and wrongly believing that his love for Catherine is not reciprocated, leaves Wuthering Heights, only to return years later as a wealthy and polished man. He proceeds to exact a terrible revenge for his former miseries.

The action of the story is chaotic and unremittingly violent, but the accomplished handling of a complex structure, the evocative descriptions of the lonely moorland setting and the poetic grandeur of vision combine to make this unique novel a masterpiece of English literature.

Synopsis:
Wuthering Heights is set in the 19th century in the Yorkshire moors, and follows several generations of the families who live there. It follows the romantic and destructive relationship between Catherine and Heathcliff, the young orphan Catherine’s father adopts. Heathcliff is badly treated by Catherine’s older brother, and departs the Heights, feeling his love for Catherine is not returned. Heathcliff returns many years later and proceeds to extract revenge on all who wronged him in his childhood.

Review:
Wuthering Heights is a novel I've always wanted to read, I've had a copy of the book for a long time and it has lived on my bookshelves for years, but I've never gotten around to reading it. I so wish I’d read it earlier, it’s a fantastic, haunting book and really is a great example of classic English literature.

Jane Eyre has been one of my favourite novels since I was a little girl, so I just loved examining the similarities between it and Wuthering Heights, and there are quite a few. Both novels look at things not often talked about in Victorian literature, and the nature of the violent relationships highlighted in Wuthering Heights, was I'm sure quite shocking at the time.

Thanks.

Thanks Antdav

I think most of the classics are free either through amazon or links within goodreads if you are a classics fan.

I must admit I read this earlier this year and it wasn’t what I expected at all; I thought it was a love story, when in fact it was a competition on who could be the biggest a-hole. Worth a read, I disliked it at the time but it stayed with me.

​Ditto, it's quite a disturbing book, nothing how I thought it was going to be, I knew nothing of the story before and decided to read it after doing a fair bit of hiking around the 'Bronte' area.

Classic book the author owes a lot to Kate Bush for its success..... Or was it the other way around. Heat applied 😊

My favourite book ever.
