Expertly crafted and no doubt a great story teller. Though, not even that helps much with the dull story held together only by the few tolerable characters ( )

Strange, dark read, but it kept me coming back for more. ( )

Pensaba que seria un libro romantico, al estilo "sentido y sensibilidad". Y ciertamente es un libro romantico, mucho mas quiza que el anteriormente mencionado pero a la vez es totalmente distinto. Principalmente por sus personajes totalmente odiosos.

Mientras que en el tipico libro romantico el amor lo puede todo y es la mayor fuerza positiva, aqui el amor desde luego es la mayor fuerza pero mayoritariamente negativa, destructiva, obsesiva.

Este libro es casi su propio genero, la formula seria: horror pasion = tension.
Para lo limitado de los eventos y los caracteres, el libro mantiene la tension perfectamente. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0393978893, Paperback)

The text of the novel is based on the first edition of 1847.

For the Fourth Edition, the editor collated the 1847 text with the two modern texts (Norton’s William J. Sale collation and the Clarendon), and found a great number of variants, including accidentals. This discovery led to changes in the body of the Norton Critical Edition text that are explained in the preface. New to "Backgrounds and Contexts" are additional letters, a compositional chronology, related prose, and reviews of the 1847 text. "Criticism" collects five important assessments of Wuthering Heights, three of them new to the Fourth Edition, including Lin Haire-Sargeant’s essay on film adaptations of the novel.
