    Well,firstmost it is a story of love and then revenge.The emotions that poured through the lines were extreme.The book was not boring even for a moment.I must say ,although it is a work of fiction,there is much resemblance to real life as it is based on subject of love,loss,grieve,revenge.

    Gifted this beautiful peguin edition of Wuthering Heights to my friend as an early brithday gift. She is always looking for old UK editions as the editing and translations are much better than Indian editions. The day I received the book, I was totally enamored with it.

    Love, hate, betrayal and finally revenge. You get all flavours of a classic fiction in this book. “The wuthering heights” needs no introduction. The love story which leds to the ruining of two families is a must read book for book lovers. Although it is a bit serious book evoking all emotions in you. But all well that ends well. So read this book.

    Talking about delivery ,the book was delivered on time ,was in good condition, packaging was good.

    The story is good, by the language is a bit tough and you can’t just read on continuous go if you’re a beginner or you’re used to simple language, the other thing is the story is so tragic that it gets no relief in the whole story line, there is some or the other tragedy going on in the house, it’s a gothic novel but there’s nothing much of horror in the story, only the kind of love story going between characters in 2 generations, it’s just about how people get affected when they love one and marry and commit to another, can go with one time read it can definitely improve your vocabulary, and the story is also good as there’s nonstop tragedy.
