Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Considered lurid and shocking by mid-19th-century standards, Wuthering Heights was initially thought to be such a publishing risk that its author, Emily Brontë, was asked to pay some of the publication costs. A somber tale of consuming passions and vengeance played out against the lonely moors of northern England, the book proved to be one of the most enduring classics of English literature.
The turbulent and tempestuous love story of Cathy and Heathcliff spans two generations—from the time Heathcliff, a strange, coarse young boy, is brought to live on the Earnshaws' windswept estate, through Cathy's marriage to Edgar Linton and Heathcliff's plans for revenge, to Cathy's death years later and the eventual union of the surviving Earnshaw and Linton heirs.
A masterpiece of imaginative fiction, Wuthering Heights (the author's only novel) remains as poignant and compelling today as it was when first published in 1847.

My 13-year old daughter loves this book so I thought that I would try it, fulling expecting to put it down after 30 pages or so. I couldn't! It's not perfectly presented, but the novel does entice the reader into the bizarre world of Wuthering Heights. I normally read war novels (lots of blood and violence) and honestly, Wuthering Heights in some ways is as violent as they are. It is both disturbing and satisfying. I recommend it.

Format: Paperback
The story: Mr Earnshaw adopts a young boy on the streets of Liverpool (Heathcliff) and brings him home. Son Hindley doesn't like the new addition to the family and is mean to him. Daughter Catherine and Heathcliff hit it off well -- too well. Forward a few years. Heathcliff and Catherine apparently love each other, so Catherine marries neighbour Edgar Linton. (That's how they did it in those days. No, really.) Heathcliff marries Edgar's sister Isabella to use and abuse her under the happy couple's nose. Catherine has a daughter, Cathy, and dies just to spite Heathcliff. Isabella leaves Heathcliff and has their son named Linton. Heathcliff is so mean to everybody all the time that the only way they can survive is to live somewhere elese, so most die and a few move away. The central question is, can Heathcliff keep Catherine's memory alive forever so that he can live miserably ever after just like Marvin the Paranoid Android?

The central characters --

Catherine: an irritating brat. She encourages Heathcliff to love her, and then marries the wimpy fop Edgar instead. Really. It's all there in the names. It's like Groucho Marx said, "Don't you think that even though girls go out with boys like me they always marry the other kind?" Not long after, she has the infernal nerve to die. How's that for taunting and torturing Heathcliff? Horrible woman.

Heathcliff: a very naughty boy. Way too possessive of Catherine when they were kids, practically glued at the hips. Runs away (understandably) when she announces her engagement, but then comes back three years later like the Terminator.

Format: Paperback
While Wuthering Heights deserves its place as an English classic, it's not a classic of the same magnitude as Middlemarch, or even Pride and Prejudice. The most interesting quality of WH, to my mind, was the sheer amount of violence in the book. At first, this created an element of strangeness to the book that was enjoyable; later on, the violence and character reactions took on more of a tinge of melodrama. More or less, I would say that WH is an exceedingly well-written soap opera. I think a little restraint would have made Heathcliff into a more convincing villain. I would be interested to know what others think.

Book Review for Wuthering Heights November 30, 2014
By

Often times we hear stories about forbidden love with young teenagers, constantly fighting their passion for each other in order to keep their lives less complicated. In Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights, the author creates a tragic romance between Mr. Heathcliff and Catherine, taking the audience through a unique yet pitiful love story. The author intends for the reader to neither pity nor feel for the two lovers. Instead, they are meant to be misunderstood characters that are equally unlikable. Although they are both selfish and stubborn, Heathcliff and Catherine never ended up getting what they truly wanted due to the judgmental ways of society and negative attitude towards the lover’s romance.
The author creates very complex characters that are misleading to the audience due to their many contradicting characteristics. Bronte is very effective in creating two people that are likeable as children, but grow up to be highly unpleasant individuals. While describing this depressing love story, she brings out the emotion in the audience. Although we dislike the characters and feel as if they are egotistical, we still are emotionally connected to their romance and feel a sense of sadness when we discover that their love will never be fulfilled. The author is also very effective in describing the setting of the novel. She creates great imagery while explaining Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange, allowing the audience to envision the homes and the great distance between the two places.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Ms.Will it's hank on October 16, 2013
Format: Paperback
If you are looking for a classic love story, look somewhere else! This book is definitely not for those who are expecting a typical love story with a typical perfect ending. (Think more along the lines of Romeo and Juliet instead of Noah and Allie) This book is raw passion, and reveals the basic need for people to be wanted. The main characters Heathcliff and Catherine are both flawed people, They are the antagonists in the book and can both be viewed as the hero/heroine and the villain. They are as wild and untamed as the moors they live in. They story is told by Heathcliff's maidservant Nelly who is referring the story back to the renter of Thrushcross Grange, the estate owned by Mr. Heathcliff. She tells him the story of Catherine and Heathcliff's love, and the events that tore them apart, and the families that were so bitterly effected. The story is heart-wrenching and moving. It is hard to get into at first, but past the first two chapters it is hard to put down.
I suggest this book if you are into more dark and depressing reads, But it is definitely for the mature reader. There is some adult content in this book that is not appropriate for children, and the language can be difficult to understand at times. It was the author's first and only novel before her death at the tender age of thirty from tuberculosis. When the book came out in 1847, it was very controversial because of the dark and sometimes insane characters. But now it is a novel that many consider to be of great literary Merit, and has been made into many film adaptations over the years. I would say that if you are ready, go for it. It is overall a fun and interesting read, one that you will not soon forget.
