A beautiful book. Emily Bronte creates a bleak, desolate, haunting landscape, populated by characters as bleak and uncompromising and isolated as the place where they live. Central to this we have Heathcliff, as hard and selfish a character as it is possible to meet, and Catherine, the woman he is in love with - nay - obsessed with - who returns his obsession in as selfish and insanely conniving way as one could imagine. Yet somehow Bronte evokes sympathy and empathy for these lovers from the reader. The story has one other crucial character and that is the landscape that envelops and pervades the characters around it. Beautifully written, impossible to describe plot that works on every level, just do yourself a favour and read this book :)
