I too read this book for high school. I found myself not liking any of the characters and wondering how I could like a book with such an unlikeable cast! I soon realised, however, that the point is not to 'like' the characters particularly (as we are made to do in most modern books and movies) but to see their struggles, passion and lives for what they are. Life is hard, life can be ugly. Another thing that struck me was the intense love and devotion to Catherine from such an unloveable being as Heathcliff. The story tells me that Catherine and Heathcliff could only really love each other. My advice is read this book. You may not like all the characters and you can forget all the romance cliches, but it is valuable to know both as a piece for school and a tragic story. Oh, and do read Joseph's parts aloud-it helps!

I am a senior in high school... My teacher loves this book for some WEIRD reason.. She made all kinds of hype over it and made it sound like a great book and we would love it. How wrong she was!!! I don't think one person in class liked the book, and most of us are advanced readers. At any rate, the teacher still thinks its a great book and tries to ignore the fact that nobody likes it. The storyline is boring ...its someone telling another story....when half the characters have the same name and its really hard to figure out who is doing what and who is who at times! I wish I didn't have to read this book!

I don't understand why we (seniors) had to read Wuthering Heights in order to graduate. The book has nothing to do with us at all. The book was really complicated and the movie was worse. Why did they use the same characters over and over again. And by the way, how old was Nelly Dean anyway? This book really sucked.
