WUTHERING HEIGHTS is a story of love turning in on itself and the violence and misery that result from thwarted longing. A book of immense power, it is filled with the raw beauty of the moors and a deep compassion for the destinies of men and women...a compassion made all the more extraordinary by the fact that it came from the heart of a frail, inexperienced girl who lived out her lonely life in the moorland wilderness and died a year after this great novel was published.

Wuthering Heights is a great example of a classic romance- a story that I found both heartwarming and heart breaking. The story revolves around two central characters Heathcliff, and his childhood lover, Catherine Earnshaw, as well as focusing on the characters of the next generation. Heathcliff wants to be with Catherine, but the problem is- he is not wealthy and he is considered to be off poor class. The story then drifts on the love triangle between Heathcliff’s son, Linton and Catherine’s daughter Isabel as well as Hindley (Catherine’s brother)’s son. The story focuses on a lot on themes such as class, prejudice, abuse, depression. Since, the story focuses on all of these themes, the story is able to relate to so many readers, even readers in today’s society. The title ‘Wuthering Heights’ refers to the setting in which the story takes place as well as emphasizes the novel’s haunting atmosphere. I love how the story was told in a way where someone was telling the story to someone else. The story is told by the housekeeper, Nelly’s point of view to her master, Mr. Lockwood. I enjoyed how she had a neutral view of the situation and did not take sides with anyone. The only thing that was difficult with this novel is understanding it’s vocabulary and cultural references (since the story took place in the 1800s). However, once you get used to it, the story becomes a pleasurable read. I recommend this story for many teenage readers especially girls, who will adore this and will find similarities to Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight. If you are new romance reader, and are looking for more novels, this one should definitely be on your list!
