Wuthering Heights is a ghost story with the atmosphere of ancient tragedy. An epic poem in prose, it is widely considered to be one of the greatest English novels. The book was published in 1848 and did not meet with approval at first because of its bleak descriptions of physical and mental cruelty. Essentially, it is a tale of revenge set in the North Yorkshire moorlands.

Ever since its publication, the novel has eluded classification, and its characters and plot have fascinated and bewildered readers for over 150 years. The title is suitable, as wuthering is a provincial term used to describe a tumultuous, stormy atmosphere. The English language has rarely been utilized as well as it has here, and you would need to go back to Shakespeare to find its parallel. Romanticism reached its high water mark with this novel.

Listener Opinions

    " MESSED up relationships between various sets of people. Interesting, but I felt a little "and?...." at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aviva | 1/31/2014

    " Certainly well written and may deserve another star, but I'm unclear about what makes it special and worthy of its status as a classic. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anders K. | 12/22/2013

    " I actually gave up on it after less than a chapter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James Coon | 12/15/2013

    " I was initially expecting a tedious story devoted to detailed descriptions of curtains and linen, but what I found was an extraordinarily dark and brooding story of sickness and the deterioration of the human spirit. There are many modern novels about "toxic relationships," but the astute reader can avoid them all and simply read Wuthering Heights. No more need be said on the subject. "

    " Wow! That was an interesting read. I wasn't sure I'd like it, but it seemed really good. I didn't like any of the characters though, except Mr Lockwood and Ellen. Well worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brett Scuiletti | 9/24/2013

    " Better than I would have expected, but the lesser of the two novels I conquered in the summer of 2005. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Newton | 9/6/2013

    " Much to appreciate, but a little emo after reading Eliot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sinead Murray | 8/29/2013

    " Love this so much - my favorite ever book "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Caitlin | 7/8/2013

    " Um...what? What a feel-bad story populated by nothing but feeble/incompetent/cruel/insane people. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 6/29/2013

    " Great book, but so dark. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chas Bayfield | 6/16/2013

    " The only book of my A level English Literature course that I truly remember enjoying. What a blast. Primal, visceral, epic. Did Bronte actually know what she was writing? Like, how big it was? Properly inspirational and beautifully mad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rose | 10/21/2012

    " I did not enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed some of her sister's work - but it is still a masterful piece of British gothic literature. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Etta | 6/1/2012

    " it was so so so sad. I ended the book feeling like I wanted to crawl into a hole and never come out. That being said, I actually enjoyed it- the characters, their relationships, and emotions were so detailed. It was easy to get into the story for sure. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Molly Mckinney | 3/2/2012

    " I had to read this for English class and it was...okay. I could see why this was a classic, but I didn't get that into it. The characters are horrible people, except for two people that are victims of the horrible people, and everything ended in tragedy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jimena | 7/20/2011

    " Heathcliff is one of my favoruite characters of all time. The relationship between Heathcliff and Cathy is so much alike to a relationship I used to have with someone, so sick, but still, we love each other. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 3/20/2011

    " Still one if my favorites. Katherine could kick Hanes ass anyday "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tommie | 8/9/2009

    " An excellent snapshot of the era in which it was written, a very complex philosophical journey into the root of how people become who they are, and how they become more than that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Orla | 4/27/2009

    " Still trying to make up my mind if I really liked it... "
