The wild and mysterious moors of Yorkshire are the setting for a passionate connection between childhood friends Catherine and Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights. Though they grow up and marry other people, theirs is a fierce love that cannot be tamed by the laws of society or cooled by the passage of time. Bronte's gothic tale explores the irresistible and dangerous nature of a love that knows no limits as it consumes the two people at its core.

One dazzling novel, the 1847 Wuthering Heights, was all it took for Emily Bronte (1818-1848) to secure a legendary status among British writers. Together with sisters Anne and Charlotte, Emily was part of one of Britain's most famous literary families. A writer from the days of her childhood in the windswept expanse of the Yorkshire Moors, Emily Bronte is known for a captivating style that embodies the same spirit of untamed wildness and energy.Back to top

While this was a tragic love story..it was a love story all the same. I loved this book. It was no more tragic than Romeo and Juliet...another alltime great! Heathcliff may not be a traditional hero...in fact he was more of an ingrate at times... but the depth of the love he had for Catherine is what made him be revered as a hero. He loved her to no end! I LOVE the ending. Hareton is, in my eyes, the major hero of this story...and little Catherine. They rise above adversity!! Just an amazing book all around. Tragic but amazing!

This was a page turner for me. The story was tragic but also beautiful. Just when all seemed that it would only end bleakly Emily surprises you. I highly recommend this book.

I can't believe there haven't been more movie adaptations of this novel--the language is so rich and the story much more fulfilling than anything by Jane Austen. I do have to say that the book could have ended in the middle, but I suppose it was more realistic for Bronte to let us know what happened to all the characters.
