An Apple Books Classic edition.
If you’ve only ever seen Wuthering Heights on screen, you may have an image of Catherine and Heathcliff as the ultimate star-crossed lovers. But that’s just scratching the surface of this iconic Gothic romance. Emily Brontë’s only novel is an unabashedly dark tale of passion and revenge that created shockwaves upon its publication in 1847.
Without spoiling too much, the original Heathcliff is breathtakingly vengeful, cruel, and possessive, not the deeply misunderstood romantic hero of some adaptations. And Brontë’s story does not end happily ever after. After tragedy strikes, Heathcliff haunts the swirling mists of the Yorkshire moors, consumed with possessing a ghost. A must-read for fans of Gothic literature, this novel will appeal to anyone who loves a creepy story.

Great book. Way better than the movie. Couldn't put it down
To All Who Haven't Heard of Wuthering Heights:
Wuthering Heights is easily one of the most phenominal and wrenching stories of all time. It is a true classic, written by a darkly gifted woman.
Since it was written so long ago, the style requires patience. But if patience is given, the reader will be very richly rewarded. Be prepared, however, to spend most of the time reading in tears.
Five stars! Six, ten, twenty if I could.
It's one of those books that I just wouldn't mind reading over and over again
