5.0 out of 5 stars Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte 22 Nov 2011
By iandliz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is so hard to know where to start with this book. It is renowned as one of the world's greatest love stories with the infamous Heathcliff and Cathy as its main protagonists but there is so much more to it than that. It is not only a story of unrequited love but also it is a dark tale of revenge.

The setting of the novel on the Yorkshire moors sets the tone of the story. It is dark, remote and the weather is harsh and unforgiving. The two households of Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange seem to have little to do with the outside world. There is none of the usual social whirl of dinner and dancing that other 19th century literature has. The cast of this novel are deserted and at one another's mercy. The book is also deliberately confusing creating a sense of unease in the reader. The narrator is a visitor to Thrushcross Grange listening to the stories of long-term housekeeper Nelly Dean. The names of the characters are hard to keep track of - we have Catherine and Cathy, Hindley, Hareton & Heathcliff, the Linton family and Linton Heathcliff. The driving force of the novel is Heathcliff, utterly destroyed by the death of Catherine and intent on revenge. He manipulates Hindley and robs Hareton of his birthright. But its not just Heathcliff who is the anti-hero. Cathy is spoilt and nasty, the young Linton is weak, disloyal and coniving. Love does triumph in the end with an unlikely pairing, but the reader is still haunted by all that has gone before.

This was the third time I have read Wuthering Heights. The first time was as a teenager when I found the language difficult and didn't really get to grips with the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Masterpiece 13 April 2011
By M. Dowden HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like most people I have read this book countless times over the years, and I know that it has led to at least one person being inspired enough to become an author themselves. I think everyone must know the tale of Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, their all consuming love and passion that ultimately results in their downfall and destruction, and also that of those who surround them.

If you have never read the book before and only ever seen tv and film adaptations, now is the time to sit back and enjoy this free kindle edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark, moody, tense and utterly engrossing 31 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read and re-read Wuthering Heights more than any other book I own. I always find the first three chapters dull but they do form an essential contrast to the lives and loves of the Earnshaws and the Lintons. The stories are told by our narrators, Lockwood and Nelly Dean and populated with memorable, if not always particularly pleasant or likeable characters.
There is so much passion, cruelly, angst, love, betrayal, damnation and ultimately redemption that I find myself suffering from a period of withdrawal every time I finish reading it. Incidentally, it is due to the power and skill of the writer that even though matters of a carnal nature are never directly alluded to at all, the thing just drips with with sex. It's a brooding animal presence throughout.

I am never sure if Heathcliff and Cathy are not simply destined to enjoy their damnation together at the end, redemption being reserved for the living survivors of the revenge of Heathcliff; our rough but enigmatic protagonist. Both tormented and tormentor. I have never seen a film adaptation which truly portrays the story and it characters even adequately. This is a novel that best resides in the imagination and I am sure , for myself at least, this is where it plays out most satisfyingly.
A word about this kindle version: seems to be a good copy with no glaring errors that I have spotted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wuthering Heights 31 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a story about serious but real human dramas, interpersonal drifts, life turns and twists, psychological struggles and stark socio-temporal distinctions. The morals of this books are multitudinous, multidimensional and indispensable for every human.
The author is highly renowned for her elevated style and language, writing with masterly skill, and lively narrative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very vividly written 18 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I feel woefully inadequate to reviewing this book, as it is one of the great classics, and there's been so much said about it already down the years.

My thoughts on reading it (apart from that it's a good book, and very vividly written) were that Emily carries out a very good analysis of what "heaven" or "hell" may mean to different people - that one person's "hell" may be different to another's. I have not read any studies on the book, so I don't know even if this is meant to be one of the themes, but that was my impression.

I would definitely read this book again one day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book. Not the easiest of reads.
The writing style is typical of the era it's written in so does not make the most easy of reads. However if you can get to the end it is a very good read.

Good read and one of the classics for a reason. The story stays with you for days afterwards but at times the story can be a little slow.

It would degrade me to marry Heathcliff now; so he shall never know how I love him: and that, not because he’s handsome, Nelly, but because he’s more myself than I am.  Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same; and Linton’s is as different as a moonbeam from lightning, or frost from fire.’ &quote;
