Wuthering Heights came highly recommended, but I just don't see it. There's clever writing all throughout from Emily Brontë though that alone is rarely good enough to keep me engaged. Mostly this is a book of irritating people being generally bothersome. I'm sure I'm completely missing the larger literary importance here since this is one of the classics, but for now I'm not impressed.

This is the fifth time I'm reading this awesome book by Emily Bronte. I always get a new astonishing meaning from a different part when I re read. You will enjoy this book about revenge and heartache.

...2 stars is the average rating?? What the heck. I thought this book was great, not hard to comprehend at all. I loved Healthcliff and Catherine. My only complaint is that the second half of the book was kind of dull, but that's just because I felt apathetic towards the Cathy+Hareton pairing.

Considered one of the Top 10 classic novels (my #9) of the western world. This dark novel is the best of a series of great novels written by female authors (others being Jane Austin, Mary Shelley, and Charlotte Bronte) in England during the early to mid 1800's, a period when women were not 'encouraged' to write novels. In many cases, their works were often published under a different name. See my GerryD Lists for other great novels.

extremely well written with characters that you can't help but hate

I hate this book so much. Never have I ever read or come upon anything as evil as Heathcliff is. It made my heart ache to know the things he did, the way he thought. I, in all my hate, could not put the book down, however. Its captivating.

Wuthering Heights has a very complicated plot line. I got confused quite a bit near the beginning and the points between switching narrators could often be unclear. I found though it was a well written book, but the motives for the characters were quite creepy.

This is one of the greatest books ever written.The love between Heathcliff and Catherine is maybe the only good thing about either one of them, and it destroys them and everyone around them. Beautiful story.

Could become confusing at times, but it was written using a beautiful style. It wasn't my cup of tea, but not bad either.

Lockwood, a new tenant, has stumbled upon his landlord and the cold house he owns. He realizes, one night when forced to spend the evening at his landlords place, that everyone and everything about the house they live in holds a story. More nosy than curious, Lockwood persues a maid to tell the haunted story of Heathcliff (the landlord) and how he came to be.

2 people that have way different back roundes but fall in love despite what evereyone says

A story within a story- 2 tales of 2 generations that fall madly in love, and the darkness that ensues because one's love is denied. This isn't some pretty love story, it's a dark yet memorable novel of how love manages to live on- despite all odds.

A tale of a doomed romance between Catherine, the daughter of the house and Heathcliff a foundling.

"...I am Heathcliff! He's always, always in my mind--not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself, but as my own being"
