Emily Bronte's only novel appeared to mixed reviews in 1847, a year before her death at the age of thirty. In the relationship of Cathy and Heathcliff, and in the wild, bleak Yorkshire Moors of its setting, Wuthering Heights creates a world of its own, conceived with a disregard for convention, an instinct for poetry and for the dark depths of human psychology that make it one of the greatest...

This classic is dark and tragic. It's considered to be a great romance novel, but there is so much spitefulness and hatred between people, the romance is dramatic and sorrowful.

When you read the novel, the mystery and characters are so enticing you I imagine the reader receives the same subtle thrill that Lockwood must have felt being told the story.

DIfficult i can find so clever and imaginary writing..When i read it,i cant take my eyes..Something hold me and continue to reading..And that was "Emily" with magnificent feelings and fantasy see have..How talent have this woman?Really i dont know and I feel so small compared to her.."Emily" show with her book,that all humans have feelings..Something precious..All care for something even the most dangerous people..And the only thing have matter,is feelings..And that break us..So i give more attention on that and not on bad "Heathcliff" type..From the start to the end this book is amazing..Too shame because only this make before see die..This and "Jane Eyre" from her sister,can stay forever in ours hearts..The word "Thank you" is so little beyond so many things they give us..One of the few amazing things i see in my life..

I have mixed feelings about this book. Overall I did enjoy it but as another user pointed out is takes a dreadfully long time to get going. Heathcliff is a bit of mess and I find that whole "dark, brooding and dangerous" character trope a bit annoying. Too lany young women want a man like that without realising how painful people like this can be, nevermind outright dangerous and abusive.

I love this book. The first half is quite slow, but picks up in the second half - I could hardly put it down in that half. You don't hear that often of a classic such as this. A truly heart-wrenching story all-around, no one comes out on top, but it shows so many different sides of broken love. Or, perhaps, it is simply love from broken people.

This love story is worthy of a high school level maturity, but not for an adult. I just don't get it I guess.

Intensely powerful throughout, dark and haunting with an ending that puts a signature spin. I absolutely loved it, and found it to be devastating and lovely at the same time.

I absolutely loved this book! I was expecting it to be similar to Jane Austin and therefore "okay", but I found myself hooked and not wanting to put it down.

Greatly enjoyed this masterpiece the first time I read it and wrote a term paper on Catheryn & Heathcliffe as embodying the Byronic Hero concept in college. It still ranks as one of the best books I have ever read.

i am so glad I finally had time to read this book as I was so ecstatic about the movie/s and the book was a reward. It had so much more in depth about the characters and story line. I would advise anyone having seen the movie, get the book it has more to offer in the story line.
