DescriptionWuthering Heights is a wild, passionate story of the intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine's father. After Mr Earnshaw's death, Heathcliff is bullied and humiliated by Catherine's brother Hindley and wrongly believing that his love for Catherine is not reciprocated, leaves Wuthering Heights, only to return years later as a wealthy and polished man. He proceeds to exact a terrible revenge for his former miseries. The action of the story is chaotic and unremittingly violent, but the accomplished handling of a complex structure, the evocative descriptions of the lonely moorland setting and the poetic grandeur of vision combine to make this unique novel a masterpiece of English literature.

Reviews for Wuthering Heights
True Love Never Dies!
A story of love and passion between Catherine and Heathcliff that even death could not get in the way. You either like this book or hate it. You'll be surprise the violence and cruelty surrounds the characters in this book not to mention some foul language on the side. You'll never thought that it actually was written by a woman living in the late 1880's and a being a daughter of an Anglican minister.
A Gothic epic romance that has served to be a basis for the famous 1939 movie which was titled the same as the book.
Obsession of loss, passion for unrequited love, ghosts, madness, desolate setting and peace at death in the end.
An absolute must read. by R.D-Diaz
