3.0 étoiles sur 5 In praise of the baddies 30 décembre 2013
Par Zikmu
Format:Format Kindle
I had read that book when I was 15 and had a dim memory of it. Then I happened to pick it up again a few days ago. Well ...

To-day's literature and cinema is essentially Manichaean: there are goodies, and there are baddies. The baddies are just bad, the goody-goodies are merciless in their self-righteous destruction of the baddies, the end makes us feel so good ... Here we have something quite different: it is the baddies who are supposed to retain the interest, even the sympathy, of the reader. The not-so-bad (and that is relative) are good-for-nothing bibulous weaklings. And what snobbery! Some characters are considered as belonging to the "gentry" - and that is petty gentry, they are not titled - but that allows them to heap scorn on the others, and the others to envy them. So, is that a true pîcture of the society of the time? I don't know that much about nineteenth-century England (I'm not English), so I cannot answer that.

But if I look around in to-day's world, even at very close range, I also find revenge, cruelty, self-inflicted misery, silly destructive conflict. Which makes me think that the book is not Gothic fiction but true realism.

Not really a love story that you could warm to easily, given heathcliffe's personality. But a really gripping read nonetheless.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Emotionally wrenching, indeed! 7 février 2012
Par Catherine Lawton - Publié sur Amazon.com

I downloaded Emily Bronte's "Wuthering Heights" to my Kindle and read this gothic novel for the first time since I was a teenager discovering 19th Century novels. I remember liking "Wuthering Heights" as well as Charlotte Bronte's "Jane Eyre." I'm sure as a young girl I enjoyed the lyrical, descriptive writing, the mysterious, dark setting, and the passionate but impossible love. But now, forty years later and perhaps wiser, I saw so much more in the characters and the relationships, that it was almost overwhelming to read. I now definitely prefer Charlotte's Mr. Rochester to Emily's Mr. Heathcliff. Such a conflicted, tragic character, Heathcliff only gives small glimpses of human warmth. Yet those glimpses kept me reading and wanting to hope for him. Every character in the book is tragically flawed. But like water springing in hard, rocky soil, love breaks through in unexpected places (as with Catherine and Hareton at the end).

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The ultimate dysfunctional family 13 décembre 2011
Par Karl Janssen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
It's unfortunate that Wuthering Heights often gets lumped into the category of Victorian chick lit, because it probably has more in common with Dickens or Balzac than with Jane Austen. The various film adaptations often make much of the love between Heathcliff and Catherine, but that doesn't begin to cover the scope of this book. Wuthering Heights is no conventional romance novel. It is in fact an epic examination of human wickedness involving an ensemble cast that spans two generations over the course of almost 50 years. Filled with powerful imagery and unforgettable characters, it makes for a profoundly entertaining read.

Heathcliff, a gypsy-looking street urchin from Liverpool, is adopted by the Earnshaw family, who live among the moors of northern England at the secluded estate of Wuthering Heights. Mr. Earnshaw treats Heathcliff as his favorite, much to the consternation of his eldest son Hindley. When the father dies, Hindley seizes the opportunity to retaliate against Heathcliff, revoking his favored family position and forcing him to labor in the fields. Meanwhile, Heathcliff and his adopted sister Catherine develop a love for each other, but due to his servant status, dirty boots, and surly demeanor, she spurns him for her more elegant and refined neighbor Edgar Linton. Heathcliff resolves to revenge himself upon all who have hurt him, and the following generation of Earnshaws, Lintons, and Heathcliffs must also suffer the repercussions of his passionate vengeance.

The joy of Wuthering Heights is that there isn't a single character in the book who could be described as a good person. They are all at best selfish and petty, at worst deplorably evil. All are set on destroying each other, not through murder or violence, but by making each other's lives a living hell until one by one they gradually drop dead of sorrow or destitution. Emily Bronte's unrelenting audacity in depicting the cruelest, basest aspects of humanity is so refreshing it's a joy to read. Yet over and above its sensationalistic pleasures, Wuthering Heights is undeniably a meaningful piece of literature with an intricately constructed plot and keen insights into human nature. It offers important lessons on the poisoning effects of resentment and vengeance upon the soul, as well as the resilience of the human spirit to rise above adversity and degradation.

The one drawback of Wuthering Heights is its narrative voice, as told through the perspective of a visitor, Mr. Lockwood, which results in some rather convoluted constructions (Lockwood says that Nelly said that Cathy read in a letter that Linton wrote that Heathcliff told Hareton . . . ). The story would have been better served by a third-person omniscient perspective. Nevertheless, Wuthering Heights deserves its renown as a classic of English literature. It's a shame this is the only novel Emily Bronte ever finished. Let the chick-lit label be damned; real men read Wuthering Heights too!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Breathtaking! 4 août 2013
Par Martin Lodahl - Publié sur Amazon.com

First, it should be said that the style this book is written in will not appeal to everyone. As someone once said of the works of Trollope, it's "for patient readers over 30." For that reader, though, it's a tour de force, and will be in print 200 years from now, whatever form "in print" may take. Its tale of obsession, fanaticism and single-minded revenge is both gripping and chilling, and the ingenious literary device of telling the story not by a participant nor an omniscient narrator, but by a close witness speaking to a more distant one, conveys all the horror without directly threatening the reader. The ending was not to me satisfying, but I frankly can't imagine a better one. If this classic has previously escaped you, as it had me, correct that forthwith!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 All-time favorite book 27 juillet 2011
Par Harry Potter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat authentifié par Amazon
Wuthering Heights is timeless literature. I read this piece when i was about fourteen, and, although difficult to follow and differentiate between the Cathies and Lintons in the beginning, Bronte unraveled this work very thoroughly and revealed a ghastly and revealing story about two selfish lovers.

Heathcliff is truly the most despicable character imaginable, and for his feisty spirit he is one of my favorite characters.
Catherine is selfish and a character i feel a strong connection to on some levels.
Together these two complete a classic tale, which i would have fallen in love with no matter who the author. However, I am truly impressed with Emily's gal to have written this grizzly tale. For its time, this type of literature is a bold one, and for a women to write? Forget about it! That's a piece beyond the story I absolutely relish.

I advise anyone interested in reading this to pick it up and enjoy (possibly making notes, or just trudging through the beginning like i did, ha) But definitely read it twice over, at the very least, for a truly enjoyable (and understandable) read.
Anything below five stars for lack of clarity is no fault of the author, and is simply a problem with anyone reading the book. Yes, it is confusing sometimes, but there are pieces to that which complete the complex puzzle of revenge and human indecency.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A true classic, must read for any BritLit fan 2 juillet 2011
Par D. Jester - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat authentifié par Amazon
The first thing a lot of people who have read this are probably going to ask is "Why not 5 stars?", and indeed, one may be subjected to stoning for giving only 4 stars to such a well respected piece of classic literature. However, I have my reasons: for one, the book becomes a bit difficult to follow at times- when you have Cathy Linton Earnshaw, and Cathy Earnshaw Linton, and the one who is dead won't stay dead, that gets a bit confusing to begin with. There are a couple of other similar instances when the reader may have to turn back to see just which character is involved in a given encounter. Also, it seems to never be very well established just how Heathcliff went from having nothing upon his departure, to being wealthy upon his return. Perhaps not necessary for that to be fully explained, but at least some explanation would be welcome. Emily Bronte does one thing exceptionally well, which is painting a picture of Yorkshire and The Moors with words. Maybe people who are better readers than I will enjoy this more. I did enjoy it, by all means, thus the four stars, but I was not as enthralled with it as many others have been.

It would degrade me to marry Heathcliff now; so he shall never know how I love him: and that, not because hes handsome, Nelly, but because hes more myself than I am.  Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same; and Lintons is as different as a moonbeam from lightning, or frost from fire. &quote;
