The Lovereading4Kids comment

One of the most haunting, complex and tragic love stories, Wuthering Heights tells the dark story that lies behind a remote and desolate house. Cathy and Heathcliff are powerfully and violently in love. When Cathy refuses to marry Heathcliff, he takes a terrible revenge leaving him, Cathy and those they love in great danger. Teen author S.E Hinton introduces the classic story admitting to its faults but celebrating its rawness and intensity. In this terrific pocket size Puffin edition there’s lots of additional material at the end of the book including an author profile, a guide to who’s who plus many activities beyond the book.

Reviews

-It is as if Emily Bronte could tear up all that we know human beings by, and fill these unrecognizable transparencies with such a gust of life that theytranscend reality.---Virginia Woolf

About the Author

Emily Bronte

Emily Bronte lived from 1818 to 1848. Although she wrote only Wuthering Heights and about a dozen poms she is accepted as one of the most gifted writers ever. Perhaps the intensity of her writing grew out of the extraordinary pressures of her home life.

Emily seldom left her home village yet produced one of the most powerful novels of the inner self ever written. She caught a cold at her brother’s funeral in 1848 and died a few months later.
