I would not recommend you buy it, even if you want an abridged copy.
I must say, although I struggled at the beginning of this novel, I soon found that I was able to comprehend it, even though the use of language was quite foreign to me.
In this piece of literature we meet the Earnshaw’s who own Wuthering Heights. Mr Earnshaw has a wonderful wife, and two children, Catherine and Hindley.
But on an outing, Mr Earnshaw comes home with an orphan, a young child who doesn’t belong to anybody.
It’s instant love for Catherine. The child with no mane (who is named Heathcliff) become close friends.
On the other hand, Hindley hates him as his father’s affection is taken from Hindley and focused on Heathcliff.
So begins the tale of the Earnshaws and Heathcliff.
Also let’s not forget the Linton’s who live at Thrushcross Grange. Both of these families are incorporated in this novel that I have perceived to be about a love forbidden and a man scorned wanting to seek revenge on those who hurt him. It’s a novel about loss, pain and the sheer agony of not being able to have the love of your life.
For me Wuthering Heights was a beautiful story that captured my heart.
I am glad that I took the plunge to read this icon of literature.
A thoroughly enjoyable read.
