REVIEW: Wuthering Heights

Title: Wuthering Heights
Author: Emily Bronte
Finished: December 31, 2010
Pages: 212
Published: 1847
Format: ebook

The only novel written by poet, Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights is a classic story of love, missed opportunities, hate and family.

The story begins with childhood friendship and forbidden love between Heathcliff and Catherine. As the story progresses, we see Heathcliff turn from innocent child in love with his best friend (who he can’t have) to a grown up holding grudges against his childhood caretakers and nemesis.

It’s been awhile since I’ve seen the movie so the story wasn’t quite so familiar, but I very much enjoyed the heartbreak, love and storytelling of Bronte, especially for her one and only novel.

The lifespan of the characters is so telling, vivid and the multiple narratives create a once in a lifetime story for history and romantics everywhere to read and I highly suggest it to everyone.
