I do not say that lightly, I've read quite a lot from all different genres and time periods, but this is my favourite book.

The ladies over at The Readventurer kindly allowed me to get my feelings of utter adoration for Wuthering Heights off my chest in their "Year of the Classics" feature, but I now realise it's time I posted a little something in this blank review space.

I mean, come on, it's my favourite book so it deserves better than empty nothi This is my favourite book. I mean, come on, it's my favourite book so it deserves better than empty nothingness.

So, what do I love so much about Wuthering Heights? Okay, maybe not, that wouldn't really be saying it strongly enough. What I love about this novel is the setting, the wilderness.

This is not a story about niceties and upper class propriety, this is the tale of people who aren't so socially acceptable, who live away from the strict rules of civilization - it's almost as if they're not quite from the world we know. The isolation of the setting out on the Yorkshire moors between the fictional dwellings of The Heights and Thrushcross Grange emphasises how far removed these characters are from social norms, how unconventional they are, and how lonely they are.

This is a novel for readers who can appreciate unlikeable characters, readers who don't have to like someone to achieve a certain level of understanding them and their circumstances. People are not born evil What torments a man so much that he refuses to believe he has any worth?

What kind of person digs up the grave of their loved one so they can see them once again? It would be so easy to hate Heathcliff, and I don't feel that he is some dark, sexy hero like others often do. Heathcliff eventually becomes little more than the man he hates, by being brought up with beatings and anger he in turn unleashes it on everyone else.

And Cathy is no delicate flower either. What hope did Heathcliff have when the only person he ever loved was a selfish, vindictive, little wretch? This is a dark novel that deals with some very complicated individuals, but I think in the end we are offered the possibility of peace and happiness through Cathy younger and Hareton's relationship, and the suggestion that Cathy older and Heathcliff were reunited in the afterlife.

I had an English teacher in high school that said Cathy and Heathcliff's personalities and their relationship were too much for this world and that peace was only possible for them in the next. I have no idea if this was something Ms Bronte intended, but the romantic in me likes to imagine that it's true.In a new preface to the edition of Wuthering Heights and Anne Brontë’s Agnes Grey, Charlotte revealed the true identity of Ellis Bell and included a defensive biographical sketch of Emily.
