“Wuthering Heights” is known as a classical book written by the famous Emily Bronte. This book is an amazing work of art about romance. After reading this book you will start to notice that many romantic movies and TV shows allude to the romance of Heathcliff and Catherine of “Wuthering Heights”. I loved reading every minute of this book. I read this book because I was forced to read it as an assignment. My first thought when I saw this book was, “Wow, another cliche book about two people who fall in love.” Wow, was I wrong.

After reading this book, I was intrigued and I wanted to read it over and over again. This book is has so many plot twists. With every few page flips, there were betrayals and drama. This book teaches you that you can’t have the best of both worlds. You have to decide on what you want the most or else in the end you will get neither. This book is also filled with meaningful quotes.

Emily Bronte is an amazing author that puts meaningful words on paper. She is great at putting the thoughts that everyone is thinking of into simple, deep, meaningful terms.

If you haven’t read this book, you must put it on your future to read list. This book is full of passion and intense love between the characters Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff. The side-characters add humor and artistic appeal to the book. The book is set during the time when the United States was just settling in. The book is wild and confusing, but something about it makes you want to keep reading and find out what happens. If you’re interested in reading this book but don’t have the time to read books, there are some great audiobooks online that are free. It can help you understand the book better as well since it is written in an old English language.

The most amazing thing about this book is the language. Many people may think that you read books for the plot, but the real key to an amazing book is the language. The language in this book is rich, and unique. You might be able to find other books with the same plots and cliche ending, but you won’t be able to find any other book with the same kind of language. As we grow older, we realize things in life that we were too naive to notice before. I would suggest reading this book through once, and maybe reading it again in a couple years. You’ll pick up on more things. Every time I read this book I notice more things that I didn’t notice before.

If you are a bookworm, or if you’re in need of a book for your English class, this book is for you. There is so much in this book that can help you in the future. You can write about this book in future essays, or base some ideas off this classic literature. “Wuthering Heights” is considered classic literature for a reason. It mixes dark, romantic themes, with the human emotions that everyone knows.
