What I Thought
I really liked Wuthering Heights. It was recommended to me by someone who knows what they are talking about when it comes to books, and they loved it. It took me a little while to get into it at first, but about halfway through the book, I really got into it. I recommend this to anyone who likes Victorian novels, and tragic love affairs.
This was a really good, enjoyable book. It was quite sad, but I couldn't put it down. Definitely would recommend it and don't regret reading it at all! :)
By housewife loves sonos
A dark ominous book that was filled with selfish, unforgiving, vengeful, hate filled, loveless characters. I read on thinking there has got to be a hero somewhere. There has to be some hope or forgiveness in the lives of these characters. Catherine Linton Heathcliff was probably the closest to being the heroine. But still a character motivated out of sheer selfishness. This was a story that truly depicts how the lack of love, grace, or forgiveness in ones life leads to jealous murderous hatred that destroys lives. Not a book that I would recommend to anyone despite the reputation of the author as a classic literary author.
A GREAT book
It' like 7 years since i red the book, but i still compare al the books to this one. It did impress me a LOT. About human nature, betrayal, money, love, hope (your hope for a happy ending) it's all in this book.
Nothing to rave about
I have, at my age, read thousands of books. I love period pieces and often find myself using a word or phrase from old English, Irish or Scotish, much to the confusion of family. I finally decided to pick up Wuthering Heights, never having had occasion to read it but knowing it is considered a classic. Having read it, I can't for the life of me understand why!
I must say that I am quite disappointed. I always imagined it to be some great love story that ended in tragedy. It is in fact a tale of love, but a love grown out of selfishness, rebellion, abuse and great dysfunction. Had I any clue, I would have left it on the shelf and my imagination intact.
Very fun to read!!

It was a timeless story. It's no wonder it's a classic. Funny and smart. Tragic and beloved. It had was love and deception and death and truth. It as a memorable experience. Loved it.
Classic and amazing
By Yo Yo😜😜
This book is captivating and a great classic. But here's the thing, I don't like the characters, Catarina and Heathcliff see, both treacherous, but one of the reasons I love it is because they both choose to ignore the others sins and faults.
This book was awesome, If you loved Ender's Game or the Matrix, you'll love this
Emily Brontë In this novel this tale portrays Catherine and Heathcliff, their all-encompassing love for one another, and how this unresolved passion eventually destroys them both, leading Heathcliff to shun and abuse society.
Emily Brontë Outside the strange and bleak manor Wuthering Heights, overlooking the Yorkshire moors, the ghost of a young woman stands at the window, wanting to be let in....
Considered scandalous, shocking, and inappropriate by its Victorian readers; this novel is now considered an undeniable classic. It is the story of Heathcliff, a fascinating, romantic, monstrous, impossible-to-define character – too sadistic to be a hero, yet too engaging to be a villain. It is a story of a love affair, social class structure, and strife between nature and culture. It is a sophisticated, grotesque, and brilliant Gothic masterpiece.
Emily Brontë Wuthering Heights is a novel by Emily Brontë, written between October 1845 and June 1846, and published in 1847 under the pseudonym Ellis Bell. It was her first and only published novel: she died aged 30 the following year. The decision to publish came after the success of her sister Charlotte's novel, Jane Eyre. After Emily's death, Charlotte edited the manuscript of Wuthering Heights, and arranged for the edited version to be published as a posthumous second edition in 1850.
Wuthering Heights is the name of the farmhouse on the Yorkshire moors where the story unfolds. The book's core theme is the destructive effect that jealousy and vengefulness have, both on the jealous or vengeful individuals and on their communities.

Emily Brontë Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell was a volume of poetry published jointly by the three Brontë sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne in 1846 (see 1846 in poetry), and their first work to ever go in print. To evade contemporary prejudice against female writers, the Brontë sisters adopted androgynous first names. All three retained the first letter of their first names: Charlotte became Currer Bell, Anne became Acton Bell, and Emily became Ellis Bell. The book was printed by Aylott and Jones, from London. The first edition failed to attract interest, with only two copies being sold. However, the sisters decided to continue writing for publication and began work on their first novels, which became commercial successes. Following the success of Charlotte's Jane Eyre in 1848, and after the deaths of Emily and Anne, the second edition of this book (printed in 1850 by Smith & Elder) fared much better, with Charlotte's additions of previously unpublished poetry by her two late sisters. It is believed that there are fewer than ten copies in existence with the Aylott and Jones title-page.

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
Emily Brontë Regreso en este momento de visitar al dueño de mi casa. Sospecho que ese solitario vecino me dará más de un motivo de preocupación. La comarca en que he venido a residir es un verdadero paraíso, tal como un misántropo no hubiera logrado hallarlo igual en toda Inglaterra. El señor Heathcliff y yo podríamos haber sido una pareja ideal de camaradas en este bello país. Mi casero me pareció un individuo extraordinario. No dio muestra alguna de notar la espontánea simpatía que experimenté hacia él al verle. Antes bien, sus negros ojos se escondieron bajo sus párpados, y sus dedos se hundieron más profundamente en los bolsillos de su chaleco, al anunciarle yo mi nombre.
Emily Brontë The Novel Wuthering Heights tears off, roughly enough, the tinsel from passion. We have Heathcliff, harsh, pitiless, wolfish, without a spark of kindness for the woman whose passion yet fills his whole life, with less than kindness for his fellow-men; a human wild beast, uncommon but not unnatural, of whom there are many around us muzzled by society, and who show their fangs only in troubled times. The woman, too, equally dead to pity, but without downright malevolence, is bright and biting as a clear day in winter. The passion of these human tigers for each other is pure love, or rather sheer love. Without the shadow of remorse for the share he had in her fate, he lives through many years with his heart moaning for his love; he hears her in the wailing winds, he sees her in the midnight mists; when he dies, worn out by his heated brain, the hope that smiles on his brow is to have his place in the church-yard corner where she lies; brighter than heaven to him, to lie by the side of the dead woman. — American Review, March 1850
Emily Brontë (30 July 1818 – 19 December 1848) is best known for her only novel, Wuthering Heights, now considered a classic of English literature. Emily was the third eldest of the four surviving Brontë siblings, between the youngest Anne and her brother Branwell. She wrote under the pen name Ellis Bell.
Contemporary Reviews American Whig Review, 1848 — Nothing like it has ever been written before; it is to be hoped that in respect of its faults, for the sake of good manners, nothing will be hereafter. Let it stand by itself, a coarse, original, powerful book,— one that does not give us true characters, but horridly striking and effective ones. It will live a short and brilliant life, and then die and be forgotten. Now if the rank of a work of fiction is to depend solely on its naked imaginative power, then this is one of the greatest novels in the language.
Holden’s Dollar Magazine, 1848 – Jane Eyre was written to illustrate the evils of an uncongenial marriage, Wuthering Heights to illustrate the evils of keeping two souls asunder, whose affinities rendered a union essential to the happiness of each. Such frightful, horrible, and heart-crushing, yet perfectly natural experiences as the two books relate, could never have been given with such appalling energy, but by one who had felt the evils which are so forcibly described.
Atlas, January 1848 — Wuthering Heights is a strange, inartistic story. There are evidences in every chapter of a sort of rugged power—an unconscious strength—which the possessor seems never to think of turning to the best advantage. The general effect is inexpressibly painful. We know nothing in the whole range of our fictitious literature which presents such shocking pictures of the worst forms of humanity. Jane Eyre is a book which affects the reader to tears; it touches the most hidden sources of emotion. Wuthering Heights casts a gloom over the mind not easily to be dispelled.
The Eclectic Review, 1851 — The scenery is laid in the North, the bleak, moorish, wild, character of which is admirably preserved. Emily Brontë was evidently attached to her native hills. She was at home amongst them; and there is, therefore, a vividness and graphic power in her sketches which present them actually before us. So far we prefer no complaint, but the case is different with the dramatis personae. Such a company we never saw grouped before; and we hope never to meet with its like again. Heathcliff is a perfect monster, more demon than human. Hindley Earnshaw is a besotted fool, for whom we scarce feel pity; while his son Hareton is at once ignorant and brutish, until, as by the wand of an enchanter, he takes polish in the last scene of the tale, and retires a docile and apt scholar.
Emily Brontë This Top Five Classics edition of Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights includes:
• 12 starkly beautiful woodcut illustrations by renowned artist Clare Leighton (the inspiration for the sets of the classic 1939 Laurence Olivier–Merle Oberon film adaptation)
• The complete, unabridged, carefully proofread text
• Charlotte Brontë’s preface and biographical notice to the 1850 edition
• A helpful introduction and author bio
Wuthering Heights was released in 1847 in the shadow of the instantly successful Jane Eyre, published two months earlier by her older sister Charlotte. It enjoyed only mixed reviews—but the reactions were intense, foreshadowing the eventual stature the novel would claim in the pantheon of English literature, surpassing in many readers’s eyes even her sister’s magnum opus. Though Emily would not live to see it, Wuthering Heights would become synonymous with passionate gothic romance and tragic love, establishing Heathcliff and Catherine as the most poignantly doomed couple in fiction since Romeo & Juliet, but with far darker consequences for everyone involved.
