    First, I should say that I greatly appreciate that there is a thorough graphic novel of Wuthering Heights, since I'd never know the story otherwise. This really is beautifully illustrated. Recommended for high school students who don't want to actually read the book! One complaint about the format: the seemingly random bold text got on my nerves. That said, AAARGH. THIS is considered one of the greatest romances of all time??? Not a single likable character in the story! Catherine's a self-sabot First, I should say that I greatly appreciate that there is a thorough graphic novel of Wuthering Heights, since I'd never know the story otherwise.

That said, AAARGH. THIS is considered one of the greatest romances of all time??? Not a single likable character in the story! Catherine's a self-sabotaging idiot, and Heathcliff is an emo psychopath. Also, I'm sure this is a common complaint, but I can't understand a damn thing Joseph says.

    This was okay but unfortunately I didn't like the art that much and I think Heathcliff and Cathy didn't look like described in the book. I also didn't get the feeling I get reading Wuthering Heights and I think this graphic novel didn't do the story any justice. But I have to give it some stars because Wuthering Heights is my all-time favorite book and at least I could revisit parts of the story.

    Wuthering Heights is one intense, heartbreaking and tragic love story between Heathcliff and Catherine - two complex and unfortunately, not very endearing characters. It's a pretty good adaptation using the original text, although some parts did feel disconnected. I absolutely loved the fabulous hand-painted artwork by John M. Burns! Overall, this graphic novel is a good read and a good way to refresh my memory about this novel I read ages ago.

    I gave this three stars, the same as the original novel. I can't rate the graphic novel better than Emily Brontë's book (which loses stars for the unlikeable characters and being so depressing), but I think it is a very good and faithful adaptation.

The artwork is beautiful. I read the Swedish translation, which thankfully does not have random words set in boldface like the English version (I find the constant use of boldface or italics very annoying and distracting - why do they do that in English graphic novels? I'm glad Finnish and Swedish translators have not adapted that habit).

    This is my first time experiencing the story of Wuthering Heights, I’ve always known it’s about a love story but had no idea it would be this complex and intense. I liked this version of the story and the illustrations were gorgeous! But I think I would have liked it better had I read the actual book – that way I would have had the chance to explore the story more on my own and made up in my mind how I thought the characters and the surroundings were looking like.

Still I think it was good for me to start with this graphic novel and then later move on to the book as I tend to have a bit of a hard time going into classics. This graphic novel made me want to pick up the book as soon as I can and then also watch the movie adaptations.

    I have read the original novel and didn’t care too much for the story so thought I would try this graphic version, hoping that the shorter length might make it a better read. Unfortunately the book is still full of unpleasant, wicked and self-centered characters and I simply struggle to connect with any of them. I suspect that whatever method the story is presented, I would still find it silly and wanting.

    Artistic licence taken and graphics interesting to say the least. A bit hit and miss for me but I am a bit of a purist. Enabled me to get my daughter to read but she was a little confused.

    For something that is supposed to be a legendary, passionate love story, I was not all that impressed. I enjoyed the story and was glad to finally be able to get through it, but just didn't feel that strongly about any of it. It could be that something was lost in translation from the original to the graphic novel. Maybe the artwork is too much function and not enough art. In graphic novels the art is just as important to the story as the words, and can evoke just as much if not more emotion in For something that is supposed to be a legendary, passionate love story, I was not all that impressed.

In this one, the facial expressions just feel frozen at best and awkward at worst. Still, a graphic novel version of the classics is great to help those (myself included!) for whom old language is just too old to understand what's going on.

    It's been 25 years since I read the novel, so I thought this would bring back memories of romance, albeit doomed. Wow. Actually, all I wanted to do was falcon-punch Heathcliff in the throat and thank the stars that we now have stalking laws in place to keep lunatics like him--and Catherine for that matter--at a safe distance of 500 feet. Catherine, BTW, turns out to be a long-lost relative of the Kardashian sisters (super cray-cray).

    I can see why a certain writer took inspiration from this. Heathcliff and Cathrine are supposed to be this amazing romantic couple. And Heathcliff supposed to be this amazing man. But I can't see it. I just can't. At least not in this version. Heathcliff is just an abusive asshole that one should avoid as much as possible, thank you. But it makes sense that he is, since a certain Edward was inspired by him who then inspired a certain Christian. What is wrong with woman wanting men like this?!?

    I read the original version MANY years ago. It was interesting to find this story in graphic novel format. I think it loses something in the translation... In this version, I found Heathcliff and Catherine to be more annoying than tragic. I think shrinking this to a graphic novel takes away the subtle nuances that made this story a classic romance.

    It was great to go back and read again one of my favorite novels. I loved the fact that it was a graphic novel, and the art work is lovely. I think it's a great condense version of the novel, that preserves all the great thinks from the novel, yet keeps it shorter. Even though i wasn't a big fan of graphic novels, i think i'm starting to enjoy this genre more and more.

    The pictures of the characters in the beginning of the book were extremely helpful to keep the Earnshaw, Linton, and Heathcliff children straight. I love reading graphic novels, because it's like reading a summary of the book, but you still get all the necessary details of the story! Wuthering Heights is one of my favorite stories and I'm always glad when I can revisit old friends!

    The artwork in this graphic novel deserves the highest award, but unfortunately the obscurity of the story won't enamour comic fans to this book. The original novel is hard enough and this interpretation simplifies somewhat, but perhaps the Quick Text version would have helped me. The artwork shines in its complexity - the dreary moors of Yorkshire in the rain and Cathy Junior is beautiful

    Svindlande höjder av Emily Brontë är både spännande och tankeväckande roman, och är definitivt värd att läsa. Detta är en roman som du kommer älska från första början eller vilja lägga ifrån dig direkt. Emily Brontë skapar en miljö kring sina karaktärer som drar in en i berättelsen och romanen blir svår att lägga ifrån sig.

    I did not like this. The artwork is good. if a little dark, and the story in this follows the original novel(from what I remember). But it is just not very well done. In truth I was bored reading this. I read the original book years ago, but I was never bored whilst I was doing so. At least it didn't take me very long to get through it.

    The review has nothing to do with the graphics of this book. It was beautiful. And I understand why critics called it complex. If Emily Brontë hadn't died before the book was published I'm certain she would edit it a bit more. I find it hard to believe why it's so popular to be honest. The love was not healthy at all.

    This is a lovely little condensed version of WH with outrageously funny depictions of the characters. With Emily Bronte's original words combined with the artistic talents of John M. Burns, makes the reader fall in love with the story all over again.

    Wuthering Heights is one of my all time favorite books and it was interesting to read this story in graphic novel format. I don't think reading this version is as amazing and wonderful as reading the actual book but the illustrations are amazing!

    Ouch, it was really hard to keep track of all the persons in this book, but I liked being introduced to the story. I don't remember reading the full-length story, so I guess I need to re-read it again after this version...

    i read it for my novel class and i hated it ! not knowing why .. but maybe because it's a school related and that i have to study it rather than reading it in my free-time ! but i think i'll hate it anyway..

    While I'm not a massive fan of the original novel, its sweeping melodrama is the perfect fit for a graphic novel format. Will look for others from this publisher.
