Il testo del libro è completo, ma manca un indice dei capitoli. L'edizione è al momento gratuita, per cui non mi aspetto né note, né introduzioni, né commenti, ma un elementare indice sì.

4.0 su 5 stelle The ultimate dysfunctional family 13 dicembre 2011
Di Karl Janssen - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato 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!

5.0 su 5 stelle Emotionally wrenching, indeed! 7 febbraio 2012
Di Catherine Lawton - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
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 su 5 stelle Breathtaking! 4 agosto 2013
Di Martin Lodahl - Pubblicato su 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!

2.0 su 5 stelle A story of obsession and very unhappy people 5 marzo 2015
Di Jennifer Lanam - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
Okay, so I'm a little embarrassed that I didn't like such a "classic" book. But that's not going to stop me from posting an honest review.

Here's a sentence from someone who DID like the book, and it pretty much sums up my feelings: "It is not a pretty love story; rather, it is swirling tale of largely unlikeable people caught up in obsessive love that turns to dark madness. It is cruel, violent, dark and brooding, and many people find it extremely unpleasant."

Yep, that pretty much sums it up. The author of that review goes on to talk about how wonderful the language was, but I don't care how wonderful the language or imagery is if the story is about awful people who live to make others unhappy. Really.

There are so many different versions of this book on the market. I'm so glad I got this one. The cover is beautifully classic. The size is just right. Not as big as a hardcover, but not tiny like a mass market PB. The paper quality is also lovely. I can't wait to give to my daughter for Christmas.
