Item description for Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë...

Bront , Emily "Wuthering Heights" in the revolutionary Bed Book Landscape Reading Format - a new approach to reading in bed as well as other places people enjoy reading while lying down, such as the beach, or on a grassy lawn in the park. Bed Books provide the freedom to lie in any comfortable position without being obligated to sit up in order to read. They can be an essential aid for readers who may be prone to back and neck strain when assuming the contorted body positions normally required for reading while lying down, and for those who have previously found it difficult or impossible to read books in bed, such as the elderly and the disabled. Bed Books can also be read sitting up as easily as with a conventional book. See the current Bed Book Catalog at: www.bedbooks.NET

Reviews - What do customers think about Wuthering Heights?

Romance... Or Reality Check?   May 20, 2007
This is an interesting book in that people tend to take it in one of two ways. People either feel that Miss Bronte is drawing a love story between Heathcliff and the 1st Catherine or that Miss Bronte is is pointing out the worthlessness and 'terrible truth' of the failings of romantic love. I myself leans towards the latter. (For one thing, the first Catherine dies 1/2 way through the story!) The story is basically this. Mr. Earnshaw (father of Hindley and the 1st Catherine) brings home an abandoned child. (Heathcliff) At the risk of oversimplifying, Heathcliff is basically responsible for rifts in the Earnshaw household. (For one thing, with some justification, Hindley feels that he has lost his father's affection to Heathcliff.) Heathcliff seems to bring out the worst in both Hindley and Catherine. While we may sympathize with Heathcliff from time to time, he basically represents vengeance and destruction. Moving on, you'll probably notice that while certain characters display passion for each other, the happiness DOES NOT last into the marriage. We may be tempted to think that the character Nelly Dean is in fact, Emily Bronte herself scoffing at the very characters she created. Moving on, the first Catherine (who married Edgar Linton) dies leaving behind one daughter. (Cathy) The widower Hindley dies leaving behind a brain damaged son. (Hareton) The story then switches focus to Hareton, the widower Edgar, Edgar's daughter Cathy, and Heathcliff's son Linton. It is interesting that Edgar is the most likable once he is a widower trying to raise his daughter. Heathcliff remains a character of darkness and vengeance bringing pain and torment to the surviving characters. (For someone who is famous for supposedly loving the 1st Catherine, he sure doesn't mention her much! Nor does he seem to have problems treating her daughter wickedly. There is something called false imprisonment as well as kidnapping!) I don't want to ruin the book for those of you who haven't read it yet. But there is an interesting resolution that to some extent gives the 'romantic at heart' what they want. However, at the same time, Heathcliff's expansion of character is notably limited and not overly convincing. While many see this as a romantic novel, Miss Bronte is offering us an interesting reality check. (Passions are often shortlived and do not usually last once marriage and reality settle in.)
