AP Reading List – Book-a-Day: Wuthering Heights

Author:  Emily Bronte

Category:  Fiction

Overview: A young homeless boy is taken in and cared for by a well-to-do family.  He and the daughter of the house grow to love each other, but cannot marry because of their different social statuses.

What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “Good girl, kind of, falls for bad boy, sort of.  One of the most romantic stories ever written, it is also frightening and atmospheric.  I have read this countless times, loving it more each time.”

Ethan: “Bronte fills Wuthering Heights with enough romantic relationships to fill a spreadsheet. However, her commentary on the dangers of jealousy, as seen through this web of relationships, makes for an enduring read.”
