Wuthering Heights (Paperback)
Set in the north of England on the wild moors and craggy hillsides of Yorkshire, it has always been touted as a romance, but can surely be seen as a story of passionate revenge. Catherine and Heathcliff have a relationship that is ever-suffering. Their dark pull toward each other is fierce and somewhat tormented. It depicts what in humans can not always be controlled.
This book is definitely my favorite classic of all time! I cherish it differently every time I read it.— laurie
The classic novel of unrequited love. Heathcliff is found in Liverpool and brought to stay at Wuthering Heights, a farmhouse on the Yorkshire moors. There he meets Catherine and he falls in love. Alas, Catherine chooses to marry Edgar Linton instead. Jealousy and vengeance form the core themes, and while this is Emily Bront 's only novel, it stands the test of time. A must-read.
