Considered lurid and shocking by mid-19th-century standards, Wuthering Heights was initially thought to be such a publishing risk that its author, Emily Bronte, was asked to pay some of the publication costs. A somber tale of consuming passions and vengeance played out against the lonely moors of northern England, the book proved to be one of the most enduring classics of English literature.
The turbulent and tempestuous love story of Cathy and Heathcliff spans two generations — from the time Heathcliff, a strange, coarse young boy, is brought to live on the Earnshaws' windswept estate, through Cathy's marriage to Edgar Linton and Heathcliff's plans for revenge, to Cathy's death years later and the eventual union of the surviving Earnshaw and Linton heirs.
A masterpiece of imaginative fiction, Wuthering Heights (the author's only novel) remains as poignant and compelling today as it was when first published in 1847.

    I bought one for myself as well as one for my best friend. I really enjoyed the book. Sometimes it was hard for me to undeerstand but I still got through it after a few times and it was great! My best friend got through it faster than I did and she loved it.

  • NOT original!
    Verified Purchase

    I feel jipped. I bought this book thinking it was the original text of the classic, but not so -- it's only HALF the book! (the original is closer to 500 pages) WHY sell this if it's not the original??? They should at LEAST note in the description that it's not the complete original. But instead it's listed as an "unabridged" version. Isn't unabridged the whole book??? So, now I have to pay for shipping to return the damn thing. Not fair.

    Verified Purchase

    I am very impressed with the condition that this book was delivered in. I was afraid when I ordered that because it was a book it may have damage to the corners of the book from packaging etc...However Overstock did a wonderful job with packaging and it was delivered in a timely fashion and in perfect condition. I was also afraid that this book may be really small or something weird becasue of the price but it is the perfect size and I am very happy with it. This edition is larger than a standard paperback. I would definately recommend it if you are looking for a copy of Wuthering Heights but don't want to pay over eight dollars at a bookstore.
