Wuthering Heights

Wuthering HeightsWuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

You want to read this book on a rainy or cold winter day, curled up in your favorite reading spot, with a cup of hot coffee, tea, or chocolate. You want it to be just you and the book, be able to drown in the words, the scenes, the tragic love of Heathcliff and Catherine. Watch how a broken heart can turn into bitterness, and start to destroy lives. I secretly wished that Heathcliff could find himself and love again after Catherine, but instead he let bitterness, and heartache ruin his life. Such a sad, sad, man and until the very end when he finally found peace.

Book Summary:

Wuthering Heights is a wild, passionate story of the intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine’s father. After Mr. Earnshaw’s death, Heathcliff is bullied and humiliated by Catherine’s brother Hindley and wrongly believing that his love for Catherine is not reciprocated, leaves Wuthering Heights, only to return years later as a wealthy and polished man. He proceeds to exact a terrible revenge for his former miseries. The action of the story is chaotic and unremittingly violent, but the accomplished handling of a complex structure, the evocative descriptions of the lonely moorland setting and the poetic grandeur of vision combine to make this unique novel a masterpiece of English literature.
