An instant they held asunder; and then how they met I hardly saw, but Catherine made a spring, and he caught her, and they were locked in an embrace from which I thought my mistress would never be released alive.

Emily Brontë tells of the passion between Cathy Earnshaw and the wild Heathcliff with such vivid intensity that her tragic tale of love now has the classic status of ancient tragedy. Download and start listening now!

    " Love wrapped in cruelty and violence. How sweet. "

    " Favorite line in here is Heathcliff telling Catherine he loves his murderer but how can he love hers (just needed to mention). Right at the start, you get a bit of that ghost story you think you're going to get but you realize this is a depressing novel. Practically every single character in the book has a mean spirited, ugly side and you as you read, you think Emily Bronte must have been heavily disturbed (which she was). Oddly enough, this is such a great romance that had little of it. But what you do get is absolutely beautiful, and horrific, a painful and passionate love story where there are plenty opportunities Heathcliff and Catherine could have just stopped and been happy together but they refused. Both have caused anguish to many and show a side to themselves that prove they do not deserve love at all. They do not deserve to be happy at all, they are bad people that never stop to make things right. Heathcliff has a more of a right to be the way he is (because of his treatment his entire life) but one is still surprised at just how far he takes things, and how infinite his rage. Catherine is just as bad since she was more in control of how their life could have been and she just didn't want to give things up. I think this novel shows how rage and insanity could be contagious as everyone's lives are completely destroyed by themselves as well as others. Almost every character is being pushed down by either Heathcliff or Catherine, and they let it take them. This is the perfect romance for a pessimist,(it will make you miserable and cry) since everyone is bitter and hopeless. It's an emotional novel, incredibly depressing but you'll love it for the bursts of romance, just dripping in tragedy. "

    " Read this book maybe three times over the years and I still love it. The love and hatred amazes me. So sad, heathclif and Kathy were doomed from the start. A book worth reading. "

    " Thought Heathcliffe and Cathy were going to be another Miss Bennett and Mr Darcy. Not even slightly!! Both crazy! Both deranged! Both bloody sinister in their own ways. At least it had a nice ending :-) "

    " I thought the book was good overall, the story was entertaining although most of the characters were crazy. The only thing that really bothered me was how Joseph's talking was written. It was very hard to understand. "

    " A fantastic classic, but densely confusing at times... I will definitely be reading this one again in the near future to get a different or better perspective. A must-read in classic literature! "

    " This was a super good author because of the way she made me passionately hate the characters. I was so angry at the book. I can't believe a movie was made of it and I can't believe I'm actually interested in seeing it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mayra Hainsworth | 12/14/2013

    " It was hard for me to hear the story from a third party as the narrator but when they finally started telling the story I loved it. "

    " I finished reading it because I was waiting for the characters to die. Very well written, interesting story, horrible characters. "

    " a very good novel .. in term of the story it's amazing.. While the language -particularly of dialogue- is a little bit harder.. "

    " I have been reading only the part of introduction and found out that this women was having a hard time surviving when she was writing this book. am very looking froward to read the first chapter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kennedy Webster | 8/14/2010

    " I absolutely loved this novel. It is so intricate in its plot and characterization. My favorite theme is the discussion of nature vs. nurture. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jojo Bell | 10/11/2009

    " oh my goodness... horrid book, terrible values.. stupid characters... no hook!! I couldn't finish this book. "

    " another very dark story that I read in college. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam | 3/31/2009

    " I loved the unrequited love story between Heathcliff and Cathy, however Bronte's colloquial style can be tiring at times. The relationship between Healthcliff and Cathy, paralleled by nature, is notable. There are many subtleties within the book that make it a timeless classic. "

    " My personal favorite book of all time. "
