Each book that I read changes me, as each book contains several lessons for life. However, my favourite book is Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.

It is a dark, mysterious story about the undefined relationship between Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw. Heathcliff was adopted by Catherine’s father. After his death, Earnshaw’s children didn’t treat Heathcliff well and Catherine, whom Heathclif has fallen in love with, didn’t reciprocate his love as he desired.

Heartbroken, as well as full of anger, Heathcliff leaves Wuthering Heights only to return several years and lots of riches later, to take his revenge.

This novel is so deep and ambiguous that it is open to many interpretations. This makes it a rather unique masterpiece.

This novel makes me think about how we as humans judge others. Even if we love them, we are judgmental and our high expectations and desires make us err, resulting in broken hearts and hurtful relationships.
