Hi there bookworms!
Welcome back to my blog! Today is Wednesday, that means that it is time for another edition of Shelf Control which is a weekly feature hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies and it gives us a chance to talk about the books that we have had on our shelves for a long time that we haven’t read yet. This week’s book is Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.
Title: Wuthering Heights
Author: Emily Bronte
Published: 2008 by Vintage
Owned Since: I can’t remember, that’s how long it’s been!
Goodreads’ Rating: 3.81 / 5 stars
Goodreads’ Synopsis: Wuthering Heights is a wild, passionate story of the intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine’s father. After Mr Earnshaw’s death, Heathcliff is bullied and humiliated by Catherine’s brother Hindley and wrongly believing that his love for Catherine is not reciprocated, leaves Wuthering Heights, only to return years later as a wealthy and polished man. He proceeds to exact a terrible revenge for his former miseries. The action of the story is chaotic and unremittingly violent, but the accomplished handling of a complex structure, the evocative descriptions of the lonely moorland setting and the poetic grandeur of vision combine to make this unique novel a masterpiece of English literature
