I think Wuthering Heights has such a passionate atmosphere. I can almost feel the freedom that Emily must have felt looking at the moors from the top of a hill. I think the sense of liberty and wildness was so prominent in this story. Many of the characters stitched into a social system that stuffed them into this corner or that, but Emily and Catherine could be themselves on the moor. They were able to break the confines of a society that bound them. And run free.

Wuthering heights is one book which will never go to a place in my mind where it is not easy to feel what the book made me feel while reading it. Very few books do that to you. This is one of a kind and I'd give it 4 on 4 forever because of the timeless and effortless ease of the author in carrying us into the world of Heathcliff and Catherine and making us feel them or feel for them.

This is undoubtedly my most favorite book. I might have read it at least 5 times. This story has held me captive for years, with its unforgettable characters, the eerie setting in the moors, and the undying love of Catherine and Heathcliff. More than everything, I remember Catherine's words, "I am Heathcliff."

For me to get into the story, I need to like at least one, if not multiple, characters. But in "Wuthering Heights", no one is likable! Not even Nelly! So, this is one of those books that I enjoy for the craft of writing, rather than getting into the actual story.

I wish I had a print edition of this book just so that I could throw it across the room. I hated it. It took me so long to read it (over a year in bits and pieces) because I was incredibly bored. Each and every character is detestable, which would have been fine if the plot was entertaining. This is my least favorite book of all time.
