Emily Bronte's only novel appeared to mixed reviews in 1847, a year before her death at the age of thirty. In the relationship of Cathy and Heathcliff, and in the wild, bleak Yorkshire Moors of its setting, Wuthering Heights creates a world of its own, conceived with a disregard for convention, an instinct for poetry and for the dark depths of human psychology that make it one of the greatest novels of passion ever written.

This book isn't a love story, it's a hate story !!
this is one of my all-time favourite books. it is lusciously written; full of prose and vivid detail. the characters are delicious in their depth and development. the plot is fantastic. it is dark and compelling; full of human suffering and angst. it plumbs the human psyche and searches the soul in a haunting, daunting and excruciatingly "real" manner. it is deep wine velvet and drips with desire for those with imagination and passion. 5 stars.
