My favorite classic novel is Romeo and Juliet and than I came across this novel that was passed down to me from my older sister. Oh my God this is by far my favorite all time classic novel. The love affair between Catherine and Heathcliffe is electrifying and their undying love for each other is undeniable. I was a teenager when I read and feel in love with this book and have read it several times since and fall in love with it all over again. I just get lost in the whole drama and how they treat each other which one would think they hate one another but it is totally the opposite. I watched the original movie in black and white several times as well. Wuthering Heights was then and still now my all time favorite. A must read.
I was forced to read this book for English and for once, it was actually a book I enjoyed.
It might seem like a boring old book, long and pointless, but it is so much more.
Wuthering Heights tells the story of possibly the greatest love story, moreso than Romeo and Juliet.
It follows the story of Catherine and Heathcliff (a orphan boy who was taken in by her family) and their love for each other. Various issues separate them including their different class and other people.
The novel may seem to be a bit annoying. It was hard for me to like Catherine as a character because at some points her treatment of Heathcliff was just awful, and Heathcliff appeared to be cruel at times. However, it must be noted that these two are destined lovers and when they cannot be together they are in a state of suffering where no one can truly be happy.
The funny part of this novel is the fact that there are so many characters that can relate to those in our lives. Even though this was written a long time ago this novel is still a wonderful story and I found it hard to put own (which really says something because I usually hate to read classic literature) meaning that this is truly a classic, and Emily Bronte is a genius!
