Wuthering Heights
Emily Bronte
464 Pages

People fall in love with dark mysterious love stories and i cant help but wonder why is that? Is it because the dark kind of love is off limits and that there isn't any kind of love in this world? We all desire the unreachable.
Wuthering Heights is about an orphan boy named Heathcliff that is adopted by a man, Mr.Earnshaw. Mr.Earnshaw is the owner of property called Wuthering Heights. When Mr.Earnshaw bring him home, his children, Catherine and Hindley weren't too fond of Heathcliff. Hindley saw him as more of an outsider, while Catherine started to accept him and play with him. One day, Heathcliff and Catherine run into Thrushcross Grange, another nearby property, but get into a situation where the watch dogs attack and injury Catherine. The family, The Lintons, see that Catherine is one of the Earnshaws and decides to take Catherine in so she could get better, while they sent Heathcliff away- since he looked like a "gypsy" or a dirty beggar. After five weeks in Thrushcross Grange, Catherine is a changed women and everything goes into chaos afterwards.
I think this was an interesting book, since there is so much things you can get from this story. It is written around 1847 and the literature is different from now a days. The story talks about morals and love and i feel like there was also a dark meaning behind the story. I personally think that the theme of the story was love and that many people are glued to this story, is because it showed more of a violent side of love that no one ever seem to want to admit to. Sometimes the best books of literature history could be the darkest ones that we just aren't sure what they could mean.
