Book Review - Wuthering Heights

A Classic
Emily Bronte's novel, Wuthering Heights, puts the weight of Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw's romance on your shoulders.
As children, Catherine and Heathcliff were the best of friends, but as the couple grew older the friendship turned into undying love...literally.
When Heathcliff leaves home, Catherine is left behind and she soon marries her neighbor Edgar Linton. Of course Heathcliff returns and an age of raging jealousy begins.
To strike back, Heathcliff steals Isabella Linton and forces her to marry him.
A shocking death leaves Edgar and now Catherine Linton with the Earnshaws child, a twelve-year-old boy named Linton.
Catherine becomes ill after she bores her only child, Cathy. After her untimely death, Edgar is left to raise two children with the help of Ellen "Nelly" Dean. Some drastic living arrangements are sure to come...
