Wuthering Heights, A Longman Cultural Edition 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

The love between catherine and Heathcliff is sort of scary. they both keep making the wrong decisions. This is a love story that sets the example of what not to do. I really did not have the sympathy i think i am suppose to have for the main characters. I will give it credit though- it is highly dramatized which makes it an okay read.
