Description

An Apple Books Classic edition.

If you’ve only ever seen Wuthering Heights on screen, you may have an image of Catherine and Heathcliff as the ultimate star-crossed lovers. But that’s just scratching the surface of this iconic Gothic romance. Emily Brontë’s only novel is an unabashedly dark tale of passion and revenge that created shockwaves upon its publication in 1847.

Without spoiling too much, the original Heathcliff is breathtakingly vengeful, cruel, and possessive, not the deeply misunderstood romantic hero of some adaptations. And Brontë’s story does not end happily ever after. After tragedy strikes, Heathcliff haunts the swirling mists of the Yorkshire moors, consumed with possessing a ghost. A must-read for fans of Gothic literature, this novel will appeal to anyone who loves a creepy story.

    *spoiler warning* It really started to pick up for me after Catherine died, but before that, I had a hard time finding the motivation to read through it. The writing is very good and the characters are extremely well fleshed out.
  • Quite a tale…

    Bronte paints a picture of her characters so well that you feel invested in each of their outcomes. Hard to stop reading.

    Great story. Heath cliff was a very abusive man. He hurt others and liked being evil. I enjoyed the story and the characters. I highly recommend. LADY PEPPER ROSE SEPTEMBER 2021 FREEPORT NEW YORK
