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.

    " I read this when I was really young and I remember that I didn't much like it. Perhaps I should give it a another shot now that I'm older. "

    " At first, I was hesitant to peruse this novel due to one prime reason. It was a love story. Personally, that wasn't really in my "genres-I-love-list". However, after I completed the book, I realized that I was glad that I had given it a try. Emily Bronte had really put a lot of thought into "Wuthering Heights", more than anyone could ever imagine. "Wuthering Heights" wasn't just a mere love story that made the audience feel warm and cozy inside. It was a tale of revenge. In another sense, also a tragedy. Most of the acts the characters committed were out of spite and retribution. Due to this "contradiction of genres" (love and revenge), the relationships, the thoughts, and the attributes of all the characters were really interesting and engaging to analyze and to think about. The only reason why "Wuthering Heights" wouldn't appear on my favorites list, is because it reminds me of "Romeo and Juliet" by William Shakespeare. If a novel reminds me of another novel, it personally means it isn't unique enough. In other words, "Wuthering Heights" was like a contemporary "Romeo and Juliet" with a lot less romance and bloodshed. Of course it had its own twist and turns, but I wouldn't be surprised if Emily Bronte got her inspiration from "Romeo and Juliet". Despite what I said, I think people should still give this book a shot since the character development in "Wuthering Heights" was intriguing unlike the plot. I strongly recommend this book to people who liked "Romeo and Juliet". "
