From the moment of his adoption by the Earnshaws, the foundling boy Heathcliff devotes himself to their young daughter Catherine. Growing up together, the two share a love that blossoms into romance, until Catherine's hurtful betrayal. But Heathcliff's emotions know no bounds and acknowledge no limits--not even death. Determined to secure the family estate of Wuthering Heights as his own, the tyrannical Heathcliff vents his bitterness on his and Catherine's heirs, manipulating lives and shaping destinies under the influence of a passion that has curdled into obsession. First published in 1847, Emily Bronte's classic novel Wuthering Heights was acknowledged by readers and critics as a tale of dark romance as tempestuous and untamed as its Yorkshire moors setting.

About the Author

Emily BrontË (1818-1848) published Wuthering Heights, her only novel, under the pseudonym of Ellis Bell in 1847--a year before her death at the age of thirty. She also published a volume of poetry under that pseudonym, together with her sisters Charlotte and Anne, entitled Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell.

If you're looking at the Leatherbound books B&N has to offer, chances are you are probably an avid reader who collects books for your library. The previous batch of Leatherbound classics (Shakespeare, Grimm Brothers, Sherlock, Poe, Austen, Wicked, Anne Rice, H.P Lovecraft, Alice in Wonderland, Narnia, Jules Verne, Jurassic Park, Dante, Homer, To Kill A Mockingbird, Arabian Nights, Hitchhiker's Guide, H.G Wells, Dickens, and a few others I may be forgetting) were an avid reader's dream - big, beautiful leatherbound covers with gold-trimmed pages and bookmark to boot. They literally are books to keep for the ages. The new collection of Leatherbound classics are somewhat different. They are a little bit smaller (although by no means small for a hardcover - these new ones match up with my Gone With the Wind) and the pages are not gold or silver trimmed. However, do not let this deter you from purchasing some of these gorgeous books! The covers, while less ornate (and more abstract), are still beautiful and sturdy. The pages are, I must admit, better quality than some of the older leatherbound editions. They will still look great with your other leatherbounds. I just hope that Barnes and Noble continues to make more Leatherbound classics!!

This is such a good book! I have read and re-read the novel numerous times and it just gets better and better everytime. The characters are so unforgettable, as is the plot. It brought back fond memories of my years in high school, when I first read the novel. The joys and the sorrows that the characters experience throughout the course of the novel was something that I could relate to.

Even though I watched the Wuthering Heights movie before I read the book, I completely fell in love with the story all over again after reading the book. The characters are exceptional and the plot is one to remember for a life time.

Read this for fun in high school and was asked to read it with a friend recently. Wow, this novel is so good. I became completely engrossed in it which I haven't done with a book in a long time. Literally could not put it done. High drama, wonderfully written and truly a classic for the ages. And these leatherbound books Barnes & Noble does are gorgeous, I am addicted.

I can easily say that Heathcliff is now my most despised literary villain of all time.While set in the early 19th century, the story is timeless. Many reviewers and literary critics focus on the unrequited love between Heathcliff and Catherine. However, I disagree that this is the main theme of the story. Heathcliff is far from a star-struck lover. Instead, at its root is the importance of a child¿s formative years and the impact that abuse can have on their place in society as an adult. As an adopted orphan ¿gypsy child,¿ Heathcliff was treated horribly by his siblings and as a servant or outcast. He was often referred to as ¿it¿ and was both physically and mentally abused. He grows to become a sadistic sociopath fixated on vengeance with a sole purpose in life to ruin the family that took him in as a child and gaining control of the family home, Wuthering Heights, and the surrounding property.I was surprised by the relatively graphic descriptions of the physical and mental abuse in this book. While trivial by today¿s standards, I can only imagine what a reader of 1847 would have thought. The cruelty is central to the story, however, as it provides the foundation for the characters¿ behavior.The plot can be challenging to follow as two family lines continually intertwine. The intermarriage between the Earnshaws and Lintons is what initially works to Heathcliff¿s advantage in gaining control over both houses but eventually results in their return to the rightful owner.I have to admit that I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this novel. It had never really been on my reading radar before and I picked it up on a whim. I¿m glad I did.

Oh how I love this book. It's been a favorite of mine for years but this edition is especially loved. I've read through mine about five times in the two years that I've had it. It's really held up well. It's comfortable to read. That is not true of many of the leatherbound series books. Some are so large and cumbersome and/or with tiny type. I still love them and I have collected about 10 of them so far and plan to buy more but this one is my favorite. If you have never read a novel by one of the Bronte sisters, I suggest to start with this one. Jane Eyre is twice as long anyway so you'll be through this one quicker. This is a book that you not only read for the plot but the writing itself.

An amazing book, beautiful leather cover, amazingly written. A must buy book. Another score for Emily Brontë.

This leather bound edition looks great next to my Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre books in my bookcase. Of course, the story is still as classic as always. Wish you had leather bound editions of the Charles Dickens books.

A lovely edition, however, unfortunately for me every time I've attempted to order this copy twice and each time Barnes & Noble keeps canceling the order.

I had to read this book for school. Now admittedly when you force someone to read a book, that person's views might be altered, but I have been forced to read other books, such as the Old Man and the Sea, and have enjoyed thoroughlly. I see this book as an 1800's version of 50 shades of Grey. If this book was a movie, it would be a chick flick. It is really just a woman who pines for someone who loves her, but is unattainable, and generically there is someone the main protagonost is attached to that does not love her. This story has alot of unnessicary words and chapters, which makes for a very boring read.
