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.

    Just finished reading this book. Now, after reading Pride and Prejudice, my bar has been set so high that no other book compares to it. So, on it’s own, this book is quite okay. The story is very, for the lack of better word, common. I have read numerous books which progress in a similar fashion, and conclude the same way as Wuthering Heights. Overall, it’s a good one time read.

  • A Captivating Tale

    By MightyThor4
    Emily Brontë did a seamless job at writing a story with truly detestable characters that still hold your interest as you read them. A must read for fans of gothic literature. Even, the setting is a character in this classic, in my opinion. I don’t think I will ever be the same after reading Wuthering Heights, like any good book does. It is a captivating tale of revenge that is as horrific as an old version of a fairy tale.
