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!

5.0 su 5 stelle All-time favorite book 27 luglio 2011
Di Harry Potter - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Wuthering Heights is timeless literature. I read this piece when i was about fourteen, and, although difficult to follow and differentiate between the Cathies and Lintons in the beginning, Bronte unraveled this work very thoroughly and revealed a ghastly and revealing story about two selfish lovers.

Heathcliff is truly the most despicable character imaginable, and for his feisty spirit he is one of my favorite characters.
Catherine is selfish and a character i feel a strong connection to on some levels.
Together these two complete a classic tale, which i would have fallen in love with no matter who the author. However, I am truly impressed with Emily's gal to have written this grizzly tale. For its time, this type of literature is a bold one, and for a women to write? Forget about it! That's a piece beyond the story I absolutely relish.

I advise anyone interested in reading this to pick it up and enjoy (possibly making notes, or just trudging through the beginning like i did, ha) But definitely read it twice over, at the very least, for a truly enjoyable (and understandable) read.
Anything below five stars for lack of clarity is no fault of the author, and is simply a problem with anyone reading the book. Yes, it is confusing sometimes, but there are pieces to that which complete the complex puzzle of revenge and human indecency.

5.0 su 5 stelle Heathcliff!! 1 dicembre 2014
Di Holly - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

You want to read this book on a rainy or cold winter day, curled up in your favorite reading spot, with a cup of hot coffee, tea, or chocolate. You want it to be just you and the book, be able to drown in the words, the scenes, the tragic love of Heathcliff and Catherine. Watch how a broken heart can turn into bitterness, and start to destroy lives. I secretly wished that Heathcliff could find himself and love again after Catherine, but instead he let bitterness, and heartache ruin his life. Such a sad, sad, man and until the very end when he finally found peace.
