Outside the strange and bleak manor Wuthering Heights, overlooking the Yorkshire moors, the ghost of a young woman stands at the window, wanting to be let in....
Considered scandalous, shocking, and inappropriate by its Victorian readers; this novel is now considered an undeniable classic. It is the story of Heathcliff, a fascinating, romantic, monstrous, impossible-to-define character – too sadistic to be a hero, yet too engaging to be a villain. It is a story of a love affair, social class structure, and strife between nature and culture. It is a sophisticated, grotesque, and brilliant Gothic masterpiece.

This is wonderful. Fantastic story, over which I have wept copiously. I even named my first child Catherine! The writing reflects the harsh, solitary, surroundings and wildness of Emily Bronte's life at that time and her longing for romance. The Duke of Wellington was the hero of the time and the Brontes fashioned many a romantic notion around his heroism.
A good read
I thought I knew this story but turns out I didn't know it at all. Quite a sad tale really 😢
Worst book ever. Even though I am an English literature teacher this is absolutely revoltingly stupid and damp and daft. This is disgraceful and stupid I can't believe I am saying this because I love English but this book is the worst book I have ever read because there isn't much passion to it.
