Review of Wuthering Heights

Treachery and violence are spears pointed at both ends, they wound those who resort to them worse than their enemies.

Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights

Genre: Gothic

Author: Emily Bronte


Mr. Lockwood, the narrator of Wuthering Heights rents Thrushcross. Finding his landlord Mr. Heathcliff (the current owner of the Wuthering Heights) and the inhabitants in it,strange. The narrator gets confused. Mr. Heathcliff though he seems to be a gentleman was not one in his qualities and speech. He was very bad tempered. Mr. Lockwood was unwillingly allowed to pass his night in Wuthering Heights where he was offered the room of a lady called Catherine who was already dead and he finds some of the books of hers in it. The narrator falls asleep he dreams of Catherine knocking the widow of the room, pleading to enter. When Mr. Lockwood shouts in fright, Mr. Heathcliff enters, convinced that what Mr. Lockwood saw was real. But, after finding no one enter, Mr. Heathcliff sends the narrator to his own room. The next day when Mr. Lockwood returns to the Grange and falls ill, He meets his housekeeper Mrs. Dean who was the former housekeeper of Wuthering Heights and narrates him the story of the inhabitants in it. And, there begins the story of Wuthering Heights.

While reading the last two chapters of Wuthering Heights, I was too excited to write a review for it. This story is an unthinkable roller coaster ride that holds exciting scenario in each and every chapter. Each page of Wuthering Heights must be read attentively. If you leave a sentence out of your concentration, the reader would be lost in the story. I was always looking forward to read a story of one of the sisters of Charlotte Bronte and I was not disappointed. Wuthering Heights is a totally different story with an extremely worthy plot and I highly recommend this gothic novel.

You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , other people could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thanks
