The wind is strong on the Yorkshire moors. There are few trees, and fewer houses, to block its path. There is one house, however, that does not hide from the wind. It stands out from the hill and challenges the wind to do its worst. The house is called Wuthering Heights.

When Mr. Earnshaw brings a strange, small, dark, child back home to Wuthering Heights, it seems he has o

This was a very unusual story! At first I thought was a little bit insane, I mean he destroyed others life just for money!
English isn't my first language and I had trouble trying to get into reading Wuthering Heights so when I stumbled upon this retelling I decided to give it a go. It's definitely helpful for those of us, who aren't fluent enough to read an original book but I'm not going to say it's something I'd recommend to those who have the ability to read an actual thing. It kind of kills the mood- it obviously lacks these beautiful descriptions we all love in older classics. I'll be getting into Bronte's wor ...more

I was really glad when my teacher told me about the Read On! Project. I have no trouble reading books of this level as I've been reading books for years now. I'm really glad because this project gave me the chance to read a lot, although the books are really thin.

This is just my first book and it took me a while before I could start reading it as I've just bought a book when I borrowed this one from school.

The only doubt that I have about these books is.. Is it really worth it? Wuthering Heights

What I loved about this book was the genius way in which the darkness which lies inside mere humans was depicted in a gothic style. No murders, no gore, yet the characters are shaped with such definiteness and sharpness that they give a chill to the reader.

Loved it. This is a retelling of the original story, and I found it to be a wonderful one.

Indeed, I have heard about the fame of "Wuthering Heights" and Emily Bronte. I even get a little bit of touch to the story, but don't have a chance to fully read this masterpiece. So when I first saw this book, I unhesitantly pick it; and it doesn't let me down. The entire book, in my opinion, is fairly easy to comprehend and acknowledge the plot of the story. Love and revenge are always interesting topic in medieval literature. The tragic love of Catherine and Heathcliff holds an important role ...more

I accidentally read this book twice. I had read it last year. Since I have read this story in another version as well, I had no trouble reading it- I sometimes troubles with memorizing names such as characters's name, places' or houses' while I'm reading English books. In this story especially, it could be confusing for me to know who's whose children. So this time I focused on the story itself and enjoyed it.

This is another version of Wuthering Heights. I think they use

Recommends it for: those who like family stories
I found this book amazing. The story is so dark and gloomy. It will please to those who like family stories. The plot is so complicated to follow , but the many deaths and twists & turns , makes you feel like knowing the end. Which is so sad , of course. But it couldn't have another , I was satisfied. Expect you to discover many treason and murders. The suspense is panting , you won't be able to put the book down , you're warn.
Everything is perfect except one thing. Like i said , the story i

Quiet a disturbing story. I'm shocked and a bit frightened.

I felt eh about the moral and premise behind this, but I particularly did not like the characters. Most of them were very cocky and the only three characters that I care about are Ellen Dean, Cathy, and Hareton. It is a tragic love story which focused on the lovers keeping themselves apart, not obstacles or man made trials. I didn't like the ending. I would only recommend this book for those people who LOVE tragic stories as this is a very difficult story to get into (even then I don't advise yo ...more

es un muy buen libro
My first experience with Emily Bronte, and it was because this is required reading for my secondary school. It was probably wrong to introduce this story to a young crowd. The tale seems a tad dark. The obsessive theme coupled with the romance makes the tale somewhat confusing and difficult to connect with. Maybe I just need to re-read it now that I'm older.

Me gustó mucho y también me destrozó el corazón, porque no es la típica historia de amor. Nunca había leído algo así y fue una experiencia muy padre.
Fue muy corto y sentí que la historia paso muy rápido (entiendo que es una adaptación) aun así, disfrute mucho la lectura :)

I read this book because it was required in my literature class. I'm not really sure if this is a love story because it's completely dark and the characters are selfish and bitter. I don't recommend this for young adults since it's hard to understand.

This is my favorite classic romance. Cathy and Heathcliffe's obsessive love intrigues me. I also wonder if Heathcliffe is the reason that so many of us like bad boys. Is this one of the places that we get that love of them.
Best Classic Book Ever!!! Heathcliff and Catherine's love story wrench my heart till I cried into tears.. Unforgettable..

My top of classic stories. I think :P
Loved it!!

I'm listening to this on my iPod while I train for the 3-Day. While I am not actually reading it, I am listening to an unabridged version!

I have an easier time with the audio book than the actual book, maybe because I had to hurry the book before school.
