Overview

Wuthering Heights (A Classics Series Book error free transcription) by Emily Brontë

Wuthering Heights is the only novel by Emily Brontë. Written between December 1845 to July 1846, it was initially rejected for publication until first being published in December 1847 under the pseudonym Ellis Bell, and a posthumous second edition was edited by her sister Charlotte.

The name of the novel comes from the Yorkshire manor on the moors on which the story centres (as an adjective; wuthering is a Yorkshire word referring to turbulent weather). The narrative tells the tale of the all-encompassing and passionate, yet thwarted, love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, and how this unresolved passion eventually destroys them and many around them.

Now considered a classic of English literature, Wuthering Heights met with mixed reviews by critics when it first appeared, mainly because of the narrative's stark depiction of mental and physical cruelty

I started reading this book and did not really know what to expect. I tried to come into it with an open mind since I am not much of reader. I think that Emily Bronte structured this book with sheer genius. For being her first and only book the structure is quite complex. I was a little overwhelmed in the first 5 or 6 chapters because it took a while to get use to the writing style of the book. The reading is fairly tough because of the time period it is set in; especially when a character named Joseph starts talking. I think that the characters are well represented are gone into in quite detail. It is sad that the characters that are immature, unstable, self-absorbed and hell-bent on revenge. This is to be considered one of the greatest love stories ever told. Ironically there is not much love exhibited throughout the novel from anyone. It is more of a tragedy than anything and if you are into tragic love stories and genius novel structure than this book would be for you.

This book is very complex for an average person to read. The plot itself is interesting as towards the end you want to find out what happens. One strength that this story has is that you feel for the characters that are in the story. A great book is one that the reader can zone in on a character and understand the emotions that the character is going through. The main characters Heathcliff and Catherine are very relatable. Women can feel for Catherine as she struggles to find her true love and tries to find the right man. Ultimately, though, she picks the wrong one. Men can feel for Heathcliff as well. He is a guy who struggles to find success but ends up finding it, even if he takes a toll getting there. One negative that I feel the book has is that it is very hard to read. For example, in the first five chapters, the author was very descriptive to the point where she was overly descriptive. Also, at certain chapters, it is hard to figure out sometimes who is talking as pronouns were used more than proper nouns. All in all, if you like reading books, then this book could be your cup of coffee but it you are a casual reader, you might get bored and confused with this book quick.

It was a difficult book to get into at first to be honest. Not an easy read for me until I got past the first couple of chapters, not something I strongly favor in my choice of reading. As the story started to develop though, I found it a very active and intriguing novel, something I truly do love when it comes to books. I think Wuthering Heights is a very good discussion book, as I read it was easier to understand while discussing and interacting with the character as they developed through others understanding. One character Joseph was very hard to understand, he spoke in a broken English type of slang, but the version of the book that I had, actually had a notes to the text portion to the novel which explain what Joseph said. I really appreciated that assistant to the book. All in all I really did like reading Wuthering Heights, I thought it was a great story and loved how it was pulling me in more and more. It is very much a mystery novel, trying to figure out who loves who, and which children belongs to which couple, what Heathcliff will do next, and why certain characters act how they do. If you like an intelligently written novel that keeps you guessing, Wuthering Heights is the novel for you!

I read Wuthering Heights in high school, and when I saw the paperback I wanted to read it again. I enjoyed it even more years later. I suggest revisiting books that were required reading in school.
