After reading some of the scathing reviews on this book I had to put in my two cents. Wuthering Heights is by no means a dainty, happy book. But it has a deeper meaning in my opinion. I believe when Emily Bronte wrote this she was giving an example of an extreme. The pain one would incur from unrequited love and the misery of unchecked revenge. I think she speaks to the sensible side of all who read her works. To caution against foolish inclinations and to show how you should react to situations and what could happen if you reaction is unreasonable. For those of you who have read it, I am comparing Heathcliffe and Cathy with Hareton and young Cathy. For those of you who haven't, just pay attention, look deeper, see what you think. But please, don't take this work as a sad work of fiction, look beyond the surface and see how this could apply to your own life. See how even though things could be unfair, cruel, and hard that life can still be worth living because you never know what could be waiting for you in the end.

Emily Bronte has written one of the most romantic stories I have ever read in Wuthering Heights, but the beginning is difficult to read and the characters have no redeeming qualities except their love for each other. Htis book is almost obnoxious because the characters are so selfish! However, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte is amazing in comparison. I have loved that book forever which is why I read this one. Read this book for the experience and the feeling of accomplishment at the end. THe ending is what gave it 4 stars, in my opinion. Overall it was a good book, just not outstanding.

This is one of the best books I have ever had the pleasure to read. Emily Bronte's masterpiece thoroughly captivated my attention for its entire duration, never dulling for a moment. Without spoiling a plot of epic proportions, it is sufficient to say that this is perhaps the best novel involving tragedy and romance ever written. Character development is wonderfully descriptive in Wuthering Heights, while still being concise and clear in reference to which person is being referred to. The brilliance of the landscape was beautifully portrayed and added considerably to the agenda of the plot. Furthermore, the manner is which the story was told was equally satisfying. Wuthering Heights was an all-around fantastic read. Personally, I can find no faults with it whatsoever. I -highly- suggest this novel for anyone. It will always be an absolute fixture in my library.

I loved this book! I heard about it in Twilight and couldnt put it down. At first the old fashioned talk was hard to understand but i got used to it soon. I love how unlike in Twilight, there really isnt a happy ending. Heathcliff and Catherine are made for each other but they make each other miserable too. I love how Heathcliff is so unlike Edward in Twilight. I think this book is just as romantic as Twilight but different. Its amazing and everyone should read it!!

I loved to hate Heathcliff. But got a little confused at times by the changing point of view in which it is written.

I think that this is too mature for a ten year old. It has a hard to follow plot for unexperienced readers, and the vocabulary may be difficult to understand. I would recommend this book for people ages 14 +. This is a very good read, but is not your classic love story. I hope this helps some younger readers decide whether or not to read this book.

I purchased this classic book over other less costly ebook editions because it was advertised as including "beautiful illustrations". IT DOES NOT HAVE ANY ILLUSTRATIONS! I was very disappointed, and with ebooks, once you click on "buy", you are stuck with the book! Shame on the publisher for deceptive advertising!

Extremely complex. Almost too complex. I like complex characters, but the storyline is so dense, it is hard to get to know all the characters and keep them straight. Soo much happens in this book. Take it slow and don't try to rush like I had to. I imagine I'd appreciate it more if I had more time to absorb it all. Beautifully written classic of course.

This is not the romantic story I was led to believe. Two of the most selfish people with very dark charcteristics. It was however very entertaining.

If you like really dark romanticism then this is the book for you!

This book is fantastic; it is a true classic, and I would recommend it to any who like romantic tragedies with flawed characters. That being said, I would warn any Twilight fans that Wuthering Heights is not an easy read, nor is it a typical 'happy ending' book. I would recommend that you research it more before just buying it, else you might be a bit surprised.

I read this book for a school assignment and it was one that I actually really liked! Wuthering Heights has a dynamic plot that spans over a long period of time providing a unique reading experience. Love, Hate and Abuse seem to be common themes throughout the story. It is a classic that can be enjoyed by many different ages. Although there was not a specific lesson taught or reason that the book was written it was very well done and i would recommend it to anyone to likes a good love story with drama. The author creates such passion in each of the characters, it is impossible not to become attatched! Good book!

While the writing was eloquent, the characters were selfish, whiny and altogether unlikeable. I'm glad to say i read it, as it is a classic, but i wouldn't necessarily recommend it to anyone.

Wuthering Heights, a classic. Many characters to remember. Only half through the novel. After I complete the novel I will rent the movie to see what I remebered. A great read.

This book is complex, hard to read and generally boring. Amazing story line though as i learned from sparknotes. Dont waste your time , just read sparknotes.

I loved this book. At first, it is a little slow and hard to understand, but as the story unfolds, you delve into the family history of The main characters Cathy and Heathcliff. Their character histories are so detailed that I felt like I knew them by the end of the book. The style of writing is very unique and interesting. The ending was unexpected (for me) and held a melancholy sort of happiness. Loved it! <3 I recommend another great book by the author's sister, Charlotte Bronte.

Difficult to read due to the language and time period of when this book was written. Definitely worth the read though. It is a timepless classic.

I somewhat enjoyed reading Wuthering Heights. The characters and their stories are certainly some of the most complicated I have ever encountered. The whole story centers around the undying love between Heathcliff and Catherine and how their love affects their actions and others around them. I was not sure whether to hate or love the main characters, Heathcliff and Catherine. Heathcliff at first seems to be a crazed, cruel man who does not care about other people. As his history is revealed however, he transforms into a broken hearted lover intent on revenge. I sympathized with him up to a certain extent. His cruelty toward people who have never done anything to harm him seemed harsh. Catherine is a spoiled, arrogant, and headstrong girl. I disagreed with many of her actions, including the one to marry Edgar Linton. She did that, not out of love, but because she wished to gain social status; a decision I felt was selfish and shallow. Wuthering Heights is not the easiest book to read, especially considering the fact that it was written in the 1800's. Much of the language and culture of the story seems foreign to readers now. Although I had difficulty understanding the language of this book, I did not find it difficult to understand the themes of it. It seems that Emily Bronte's themes transcend the changes in culture and language. I clearly understood her theme of undying love represented in both Heathcliff and Catherine's relationship and Hareton and Catherine's (daughter of Edgar Linton and Catherine). The theme of revenge also runs strong. The later half of the story surrounds Heathcliff's vengeful actions. A feeling of ominous darkness surrounds the plot. I felt slightly depressed while reading this book. Ghostly appearances and the dark setting add to the mystery of the story. Although slightly perturbed by the disturbingly shallow and cruel characters, dark themes, and images in Wuthering Heights, I enjoyed the original plot of it. Although Wuthering Heights is confusing, it is a good book to read if you are hungry for a story about the fierce and dark passion between two people.

Love the Bronte sisters! Though must admit love Jane Eyre a bit better than Wuthering Heights, but great read and nothing like the sister's work! The Barnes and Noble Classice series is especially enjoyable as there are references and footnotes...worth the purchase! A classic for a reason...give it your time!

I'm a huge fan of the Twilight series and since this book was mentioned quite a few times, I thought I'd give it a go. After reading Stephenie Meyer books though, I found Wuthering Heights to be a difficult read. It is of course a classic and one that everyone on earth should read at some point. It gave me topics of discussion at the workplace and with some friends as well. However, it is a slow read because the dialect is not what I am used to. I can say that I expanded my vocabulary with this one!
