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.

Very good read...
Having read many Dickens classics, I was familiar with the style of Bronte’s writing. I admit to being hooked on this work from page 1, when Lockwood first meets Heathcliff. Wonderful story from an author whose career ended too soon.
If you are thinking of reading this because "Edward and Bella told you" stay away from this book. This is a classic for people who know how to appreciate it. It's phenomenal! There's so much to figure out in this book. It's very deep.
A book I had head of and wanted to read , or thought I wanted to read.
I gave it three stars , could have been five but it just couldn’t get there
A story of cruelty and expectance
Hard for me to absorb, coming from a different area
I guess it hits to close to the sheep of this area.
