Overview

From the moment of his adoption by the Earnshaws, the foundling boy Heathcliff devotes himself to their young daughter Catherine. Growing up together, the two share a love that blossoms into romance, until Catherine's hurtful betrayal. But Heathcliff's emotions know no bounds and acknowledge no limits--not even death. Determined to secure the family estate of Wuthering Heights as his own, the tyrannical Heathcliff vents his bitterness on his and Catherine's heirs, manipulating lives and shaping destinies under the influence of a passion that has curdled into obsession.
 
First published in 1847, Emily Bronte's classic novel Wuthering Heights was acknowledged by readers and critics as a tale of dark romance as tempestuous and untamed as its Yorkshire moors setting. This exquisite collectible edition features an elegant bonded-leather binding, a satin-ribbon bookmark, distinctive stained edging, and decorative marbled endpapers. It's the perfect gift for book-lovers, and an artful addition to any home library.

In early nineteenth-century Yorkshire, the passionate attachment between a headstrong young girl and a foundling boy brought up by her father causes disaster for them and many others, even in the next generation. Includes explanatory notes throughout the text, an introduction discussing the author and the background of the story, and a study guide.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

These inexpensive Collectible Editions are Barnes & Noble exclusives, only available in our stores and on our website. Each of these novels is by any standard a classic; from Oscar Wilde's ominous The Picture of Dorian Gray and Bram Stoker's eerie Dracula to the strange human mysteries of Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights and the nuanced social satire of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Attractively bound and exquisitely readable, these Barnes & Noble Bargain deluxe classics boast a price less than many, if not most paperbacks. Frugal shoppers can fetch even greater savings by purchasing the handsome boxed set, containing all six leatherbound hardcovers for just $70.00! Arguably the best buy of the month.

    Despite some differences, the new Leatherbound Classics are still worth the buy!

    If you're looking at the Leatherbound books B&N has to offer, chances are you are probably an avid reader who collects books for your library.

    The previous batch of Leatherbound classics (Shakespeare, Grimm Brothers, Sherlock, Poe, Austen, Wicked, Anne Rice, H.P Lovecraft, Alice in Wonderland, Narnia, Jules Verne, Jurassic Park, Dante, Homer, To Kill A Mockingbird, Arabian Nights, Hitchhiker's Guide, H.G Wells, Dickens, and a few others I may be forgetting) were an avid reader's dream - big, beautiful leatherbound covers with gold-trimmed pages and bookmark to boot. They literally are books to keep for the ages.

    The new collection of Leatherbound classics are somewhat different. They are a little bit smaller (although by no means small for a hardcover - these new ones match up with my Gone With the Wind) and the pages are not gold or silver trimmed. However, do not let this deter you from purchasing some of these gorgeous books! The covers, while less ornate (and more abstract), are still beautiful and sturdy. The pages are, I must admit, better quality than some of the older leatherbound editions. They will still look great with your other leatherbounds. I just hope that Barnes and Noble continues to make more Leatherbound classics!!

    True Love Never Dies!

    This is such a good book! I have read and re-read the novel numerous times and it just gets better and better everytime. The characters are so unforgettable, as is the plot. It brought back fond memories of my years in high school, when I first read the novel. The joys and the sorrows that the characters experience throughout the course of the novel was something that I could relate to.

    Truly fell in love all over again

    Even though I watched the Wuthering Heights movie before I read the book, I completely fell in love with the story all over again after reading the book. The characters are exceptional and the plot is one to remember for a life time.

    I had forgotten how great this was...

    Read this for fun in high school and was asked to read it with a friend recently. Wow, this novel is so good. I became completely engrossed in it which I haven't done with a book in a long time. Literally could not put it done. High drama, wonderfully written and truly a classic for the ages. And these leatherbound books Barnes & Noble does are gorgeous, I am addicted.

    Love the leather bound cover

    This leather bound edition looks great next to my Pride and Prejudice and
    Jane Eyre books in my bookcase.
    Of course, the story is still as classic as always.
    Wish you had leather bound editions of the Charles Dickens books.

    A lovely edition, however, unfortunately for me every time I've attempted to order this copy twice and each time Barnes & Noble keeps canceling the order.

    I had to read this book for school. Now admittedly when you force someone to read a book, that person's views might be altered, but I have been forced to read other books, such as the Old Man and the Sea, and have enjoyed thoroughlly. I see this book as an 1800's version of 50 shades of Grey. If this book was a movie, it would be a chick flick. It is really just a woman who pines for someone who loves her, but is unattainable, and generically there is someone the main protagonost is attached to that does not love her. This story has alot of unnessicary words and chapters, which makes for a very boring read.
