    " (view spoiler)[I loved to hate Heathcliff, hoping at some point I'd find a redeemable quality in him. Well, he doesn't have a single one as far as I'm concerned. Justice, of course, comes in the end when Catherine and Hareton fall in love. Not that Heathcliff would really care because, not long after, he becomes completely demented, hallucinating before he dies. I'm glad that Heathcliff didn't turn over a new leaf, or learn to love or forgive, it makes him more realistic. Even though I really didn't love any of the characters in the book, I did love the book. (hide spoiler)] "

    " there are no redeemable characters in this classic. I struggled with not having anyone to root for. I think I need to reread this "

    " Wuthering heights is one of the most iconic literary classics of all time! I studied this whilst studying For an english literature exam and also read the spark notes that coincide with it. A rebellion at its initial time of printing and under a pseudonym it both shocked and intrigued. Emily Bronte Loved being on the moores which is the primary setting for this amazing novel. She explores many things throughout the books such as religion and social class. There are many themes and motifs to persue as well as ideas and morals. Emily wrote of many things that she felt herself such as isolation and poverty. I absolutely loved the storyline. The novel also raises many questions which make for a brilliant study but its also a perfect read and embellishes a similar theme to charlottes novel jane eyre Which also deals with a time where women felt undervalued and love was expected to be dependant on wealth rather than feelings. Emily wrote a book about love and religion. Hope and betrayel. Madness and isolation. Personally i feel it is profound. I love it. Amazing. Happy reading. Emma "

    " Wuthering Heights? Blithering Depths more like. If this, or anything like it, had been written today it would be instantly despatched to the slush pile marked 'over-wrought juvenilia'. I'm not surprised that teenage girls get all gooey over this - but then they get all gooey over Twilight, which (I am led to believe) has all the literary merits of a sack of spanners. Anyone caught liking this overlong, confusing, badly constructed miasma of drivel should be rapped sharply across the knuckles and told to read Jane Austen instead. I prefer the Monty Python version in semaphore. "

    " One of the most haunting books you will ever read. The imagery of the landscape, its starkness and its bleakness is brilliantly juxtaposed against the doomed love story of Catherine and Heathcliff. A classic that I have read at least 5 times "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nora | 1/8/2014

    " This is another book that is perfect for wallowing in angst. The romance & pathos of it all.... "

    " I thought I would like his book more the second time. Nope! I just can't bring myself to finish it. "

    " WOW!! What a read!!!! A fave for many years! "

    " Awalnya memang suram dan kelam sekali cerita sekaligus penggambarannya. Tapi, itu semua terbayarkan di bab-bab terakhir. Aku tahu, buku ini memang sangat menguras emosi, tapi terus baca sampai halaman terakhir. Karena jujur, aku nggak bisa melepaskan diri justru waktu baca halaman-halaman terakhir. "

    " I have loved and enjoyed all of the Bronte sisters books with the exception of Wuthering Heights. It is a classic but . . . "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Seraiah Scamardo | 7/10/2013

    " While I enjoyed the writing style of the book, the characters were overly dramatic and disruptive. The tale was somewhat stressful as well. I enjoyed the writing style, however I did not enjoy the story. Perhaps I'm being ludicrous but I could easily compare it to the Twilight of the classics. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Angela | 7/5/2013

    " Good plot but I just can't take this style of writing. Sorry Bronte, I'm sure someone else appreciates it. "

    " My absolute favourite book, each time I read it I find something new "

    " It began quite boringly, and this was the reason this was the second time I tried my hand at reading it. But as it proceeded, the story evolved, it became the sort of book that kept me up until 4am. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betty Unibe | 3/16/2013

    " A favorite. Love the characters. "

    " Oh Heathcliff where are you? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kari | 2/7/2013

    " This book has it all... Love, hate, treachery, ghosts, and redemption. The beginning of the book was a little hard to follow for me simply because I didn't quite understand how the Heathcliffs and Earnshaws were related. All of that information comes in due time, and it is worth the wait. "

    " not a chick and I loved it anyway! "
