Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

I passionately recommend Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte for those who enjoy 19th century stereotypical drama. Bronte’s novel investigates how love can be etched forever in your mind. Heathcliff, an orphan, is discovered by Mr. Earnshaw in Liverpool. He takes him home to Wuthering Heights, where he’s raised. Everything is delightful now because the poor, orphan boy has a comfortable home. But the problem has to begin someplace.

Right off the bat, Hindley Earnshaw doesn’t like Heathcliff because he’s favored by Hindley’s father. Obviously, this will spark conflicts between the two when they’re growing up. Catherine Linton, Hindley’s aunt, expresses certain strong feelings for Heathcliff. They both hold extremely distinctive personalities which, to me, makes the story that much more entertaining.

This book really appealed to me because it’s a story within a story. When it starts, the story takes you into a different time period, but then it takes you even further back when the former housekeeper, Mrs. Dean, starts her story. Mrs. Dean is a caring, sweet woman. Her character faces internal conflicts with Catherine Linton, who possesses a strong personality.
This book taught me, and probably other readers, that arrogance and anger will turn someone into a monster and you will be feared. There are a lot of little things that Catherine says, but she doesn’t realize it, and it ends up hurting the ones around her for than she’s expecting.
