I can take a while to get into it. It is well written but can be dry at times. If your interested in the Bronte sister, I would personally recommend Jane Eyre it is much more interesting and never dull. You can also watch the movie free online.

Originally Answered: What is Wuthering Heights ACTUALLY about?
Revenge. Many people, generally those who have never read the book, consider Wuthering Heights to be a straightforward, if intense, love story — Romeo and Juliet on the Yorkshire Moors. But this is a mistake. Really the story is one of revenge. It follows the life of Heathcliff, a mysterious gypsy-like person, from childhood (about seven years old) to his death in his late thirties. Heathcliff rises in his adopted family and then is reduced to the status of a servant, running away when the young woman he loves decides to marry another. He returns later, rich and educated and sets about gaining his revenge on the two families that he believed ruined his life.
Both are great, but WH is by far my favorite. Jane Eyre is really romantic, but I sort of felt like that was it. Wuthering Heights has much more passion and drama. It has love in it but is not just about love. I sort of liked the fact that none of the characters are likeable, it made the book more interesting. Didn't charlotte bronte publically say that she did not like wuthering heights because it was so dark? I think she said that she did not think that characters as evil as Heathcliff should be written. The credit for the book should be attributed to the writer, Emily, who is most talented in my opinion. edit: I agree with you about charlotte promoting the book, I just find her views on it interesting. I guess I felt that in JE all of the characters were almost too "good" and moral to the point where it was almost boring. Someone mentioned once that they liked JE because they were an optimist, and good can be seen in all of the characters. I'll admit that im a pessimist, and maybe I like WH because it demonstrates shows a world where all of the characters are "bad". Its also interesting to think that maybe charlotte and emily had different views on life, positive or negative, and that is why they had such different works. Just a thought...

It can be a little dense, and isn't my favorite Bronte novel - but it's still very very good.
I'd recommend watching the Laurence Oliver version of the movie as well - then, if you read the book after, you'll find out there's much more to the story.

the story line is about heathcliff and catherine sr. One of the main focuses of the book is the love of the two and also pay attention to descriptions of the moors. Know that their love is destructive, selfish, ignorant. Its a nice books with a good ending to a sort of family feud.

It is a very good book that revolves around the story of Heathcliffe and his love for Cathy who turns away from him because he is beneath her socially. Heathcliffe goes away and returns many years later, a very different man. That should interest you. The character of Heathcliffe and his relationship with Cathy has been the subject of debate since the book was new. It is true classic literature. Pax-C

Hatred intensifies love. Catherine and Heathcliff are locked in a sadistic relationship where rejection is proof of love and desire is fed by defiance. Nelly Dean is a sentimental foil to the intensity of these passions, and the romantic landscape of the book is a counterpoint to the cruelty of love as Cathy and Heathclliff know it.
