A book by Emily Brontë

Grade 8 Up-British actor Martin Shaw reads this shortened version of the classic Emily Bronte novel. His easily-understood accent is appropriate and helps to set the mood. Shaw reads at a very steady pace, pausing effectively for emphasis or when his … see full wiki

There's something rotten in the manor of Wuthering Heights. A young boy is hanging up puppies like decorations, an elderly servant can't speak comprehensible English, and the master of the house is a maddened, love stricken gypsy hellbent on exacting vengeance on all those around him. Okay that's exaggerating a bit, but...      It's really hard to review a literary classic without saying things that haven't been said a million times before. And if you do, …

I was required to read all of the Bronte books (6 total?) for a class on the Bronte sisters. It's unfortunate that Wuthering Heights is the only book Emily finished before she died.      Her use of multiple narrators is something that one would expect to make the story unreadable, but it works considering our trust of the narrators is one of the things that is being questioned.      Wuthering Heights is much darker and deeper than any of the other Bronte …

Reading this book has moved me to the extent of remembering the conversations of the main characters. There is something remarkable about this story; it kept me amazed on how their lives and the ones closed to them were connected. I am very convinced that it’s a must-read book. Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange were the two main settings of the story, itself. Both situated on the moors of Yorkshire in Northern England, scenarios of love and hatred between two families occurred. …

This novel is one of the ultimate classics in my opinion. Never have a seen a story with this much character charisma and a plot that ultimately goes down a road that no one has ever repeated. Part of this I believe is because the novel does not have a conventional happy ending, in reality it becomes quite sad at about the middle when Catherine dies. The rest of the novel draws you in and you watch as Heathcliff fulfills his revenge which in the end comes to nothing because it relieves none of …

This is my favorite Bronte book, edging out Jane Eyre.
review by . November 15, 2001
Let's admit it, as good a writer Emily Bronte was, she wasn't as good a writer as her sister, Charlotte. Her only major work, WUTHERING HEIGHTS clearly illustrates that. The writing is superior to most fiction that one reads today and the story is rather interesting. Yet, it failed to catch my attention as easily as JANE EYRE did. There are very few likeable characters in the story (the young Catherine Earnshaw, the housekeeper, and the narrator) and the ending seemed rather hasty. Nevertheless, …
