Wuthering Heights
By: Emily Bronte

I first read Wuthering Heights when I was a junior in high school. I had just transferred to a new school and wanted to read this book for my English class book report. The teacher looked at me funny when I asked if I could but gave me her permission. I struggled with it at first. The language used and the writing style was unlike anything I had read before. In fact, I had to rent the movie version to clear up some confusion. But this didn't stop me. I kept reading til the end, and then I went on to read it several more times in the years after.

Every time I read it it's like the first time. I always walk away having remembered something I had forgotten in previous readings. To this day it's one of my favorite classics. I have no doubt I will read it again in the near future and I can't wait. Heathcliff is a character you will not forget once the book is finished, nor is Catharine. The book itself is one of those rare gems that sticks with you long after you finish the book. The story almost haunts you in many ways.

If you ever get the chance to read it someday, I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. Happy Reading!!

Great post! I agree with you, this truly is a haunting story, and I see it differently every time I read it. I intend to re-read it this fall again.
