Genre: Classic; Gothic


Wuthering Heights tells the story of a romance between two youngsters: Catherine Earnshaw and an orphan boy, Heathcliff. After she rejects him for a boy from a better background he develops a lust for revenge that takes over his life. In attempting to win her back and destroy those he blames for his loss Heathcliff creates a living hell for those who live at Wuthering Heights. This tale of hauntings, passion and greed remains unsurpassed in its depiction of the dark side of love.

My Take on the Book:

For those who aren’t into books that have got dark atmospheres – rather give this one a skip. This is a book that has a dark atmosphere and themes. Even though this book wasn’t quite to my taste, though written well – I’m glad I read it. I ended up giving this leisure read a two star rating.

Last Word:

Even though I have been wanting to read a classic for a while, this wasn’t quite what I was wanting to go for. I will be reading another Bronte book at some stage.
