Perhaps the most haunting and tormented love story ever written, Wuthering Heights is the tale of the troubled orphan Heathcliff and his doomed love for Catherine Earnshaw.

Published in 1847, the year before Emily Bronte's death at the age of 30, Wuthering Heights has proved to be one of the nineteenth century's most popular yet disturbing masterpieces. The windswept moors are the unforgettable setting of this tale of the love between the foundling Heathcliff and his wealthy benefactor's daughter, Catherine. Through Catherine's betrayal of Heathcliff and his bitter vengeance, their mythic passion haunts the next generation even after their deaths. Incorporating elements of many genres - from gothic novels and ghost stories to poetic allegory - and transcending them all, Wuthering Heights is a mystifying and powerful tour de force.

    " While this is a work of literary genius, I don't see how everyone is in love with it! Did we read the same book? This is not a love story. Love is not abusive or insane. Nor do I prefer to read about perverted human ideals for pleasure. I can live my own dysfunctional crazy life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerry | 1/25/2014

    " One of my favourite books. Romantic, tragic & historic all in one. I could read it over & over again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dev | 1/16/2014

    " The most touching love story with out the artificial sophistication portraying the passion and vigor of intense and self consuming love "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aviva | 11/26/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Moatazz | 11/12/2013

    " well written but i don't like how vindictive and sadistic Heathcliff is. Good book, not my type of story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Holly Driver | 10/9/2013

    " Well, I feel sort of embarrassed to say I hated this book, like it makes me look unintelligent. But still. I despised both Cathy and Heathcliff, and would have been quite happy with them both dead. I know that characters don't have to be likeable for a book to be good, but to feel at least a little compassion would have been useful considering this is a romance. Cathy was childish, selfish, stroppy and overall unlovable. At least Heathcliff had some character buildup that could lead you to understand his awful personality, but Cathy seemed to just be awful. What's more is I failed to understand where their undying love even arose from. They hung out as children... that was sort of it. I'd definitely never read it again. "

    " Wonderful as always, reading an old classic every now and then between the new is quite refreshing...love love love Emily Bronte "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth Lilly | 9/26/2013

    " I absolutely adored this book. It was required reading for my senior-year high school English class. It just might be the perfect level of angst and goth for a teenage girl. Or a 20-something. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 9/4/2013

    " The first time I read this novel, I was so caught up in the emotion that my heart rate sped up and I almost couldn't breathe. In other words, one of the best books ever written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Xxburgiexx | 8/6/2013

    " Maybe it was because I had to read the book for a class but I just didn't feel drawn to read it. When I did get into it, though, I quite enjoyed the book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Audrey | 7/14/2013

    " Amazing novel. Go read it! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Katie Potter | 7/10/2013

    " I think British novels just do not work for me - could have told the same boring story in about 50 pages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Parish | 3/27/2013

    " not a chick and I loved it anyway! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 3/17/2013

    " Great book, but so dark. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy Wolf | 3/5/2013

    " Virginia Woolf said that Emily Bronte was the only author who could set down on the page exactly what she saw in her head. Perfect in its complex structure and Gothic feeling. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Delia Remington | 7/24/2012

    " I absolutely adore this book and reread it every few years. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sean | 3/10/2012

    " Maybe it's me by this was the second worst book ever, behind east of Eden by John Steinbeck "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 2/20/2012

    " Full of characters I hated. By the end I was cheering for the survivors to the extent that I stayed up late on a work night to finish it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bailey Jackson | 6/23/2011

    " It was a bit overrated, I enjoyed it but not as much as I though I would... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat Gerber-Relf | 1/16/2011

    " Not bad at all. almost a page turner, although a very old classic book. I quite enjoyed this, it was a first time read for me, although I had seen a couple of films. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicky Crowther | 1/6/2011

    " Not what I was expecting!!! Thought Wuthering Heights was going to be a romantic tale!!!! Lots of very interesting dark, manipulative characters! Brilliant!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/16/2010

    " It took me a lot longer to finish this book than I had anticipated. It just wasn't as easy to read through and as captivating as I like. It was very well written and spans a very long time period in a very good way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine Borghoff | 8/25/2010

    " Read it when I was 19 in the middle of winter in northern germany....... brilliant "

    " If you only read one book in your life, let it be Wuthering Heights. Brilliantly beyond compare. "

About the Author

Emily Brontë (1818–1848), sister of Anne and Charlotte, published only one novel in her career, Wuthering Heights. Though she died just one year after its publication and never knew of its success, the story of doomed love and revenge went on to earn its place among the masterpieces of English literature.
