Wuthering Heights


While in high school I read Wuthering Heights for the first time.   The plot caused me to finish the book before its due date.  Since then I have read it multiple times, and each time I read it through "new eyes" with my life experiences affecting my understanding of the book.  It is still one of my all time favorites that I would recommend to everyone!  If Magdalena had been a boy, I would have been stubborn about using the name Edgar, a character from the book and a family name.  Noah was thankful not to have to deal with it because that is not one of his favorite names.  I still can't convince him to consider it as a possibility!  My mom had named one of her dogs Edgar, so he always associated the name with the dog.  

Edgar is one of the few kind characters in the book because everyone is so selfish that they are driven to wild actions that cause others to suffer.  Although there are strange situations and mean characters in the book it ends peacefully.  It offers a hopeful situation to people who were forced into a life a misery from their ancestors.  

This book can be downloaded FOR FREE on your Kindle, or I found it here online.
