5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most beautiful books ever written, 28 May 2012

This review is from: Wuthering Heights (Kindle Edition)
Thank you Thank you Thank you for putting this book on kindle. This is absolutely one of my all time favorite books and I am quite a prolific reader rarely reading anything more than once, but I have read this over and over. It helps I suppose that I am from the area written about in the story, so I know the moors and the landscape very well, know what Cathy means when she talks about being 'on top of the world' when she is on the moor however I cannot understand anyone who could say that this book is anything but wonderful. The writing isn't very difficult to read and the style isn't really that old fashioned- there are no Dickenson style long winded descriptions, bearing in mind that it was written around the same time. It is a shortish book full of passion, love, ghosts, pain, longing, and long dark nights of the soul. It is a story about decisions that are made having life long consequences and the suffering that people inflict on each other when they themselves are in pain.
It is beautifully written and a tale that has stood the test of time as it is a classic story that people will repeat and repeat in their own lives.
Recommended at least once in your lifetime.
