Staff Reviews


This Valentine's Day, give Downton Abbey a rest and experience British passion at its wildest. True forces of nature, Heathcliff and Catherine are the lusty poster children for every bodice-ripper since. This Bronte sister knocks that wishywashy Jane Eyre into a chamber pot. — Charles Bottomley

Oh yes. OH YES. Your eyes do not deceive you. This eighteen year old boy is imploring you to read Emily Bronte’s classic 1847 romance novel Wuthering Heights. English teachers love it, English students love to hate it, but I beg you humble reader, give it a chance. It is a classic for. a. reason.
This is the original soap opera, the revenge-tragedy to end all revenge-tragedies, and of course, one of the greatest gothic novels of all time. Reading this book is nothing short of an absolute rollercoaster, as its whirlwind plot takes twists and turns which puts most other novels to shame. It’s just a blast. With two Catherines, two Edgars, three Lintons, and an abundance of H’s (I’m looking at you Heathcliff, Hindley, and Hareton), you’ll need a three-generation genealogy map just to make it through the first few chapters! Trust me though, it’s truly worth it. Whether you need catharsis after a bad breakup (nobody’s love life is as disastrous as Heathcliff’s), you’re on a schadenfreude kick (so much misery, but it’s so much fun), or your power is out and you can’t watch your daily soap, Wuthering Heights will not disappoint. Trust me, after reading this, General Hospital will put you to sleep.

— Patrick Molluso

Description


"I saw everything. They told me everything. I played a part in everything." Nelly Dean has spent her life serving the inhabitants of Wuthering Heights. She has quite a tale to tell. She wants to tell it to you. Nelly’s story is as wild and stormy as the moors on which it is set. She talks of haunting, hatred, love, grief, and the desire for revenge. Her tale begins and ends with the mysterious Heathcliff. Where has this strange, silent boy come from? Will you fear him or pity him? What drives the adult Heathcliff to destroy others, even his own son, and to dig in dark graveyards? Is it love or vengeance, or both? This famous story of Heathcliff and Catherine will thrill you and chill you to the bone.
