Wuthering Heights

by Emily Brontė

In spite of its age, the direct language makes it quite accessible to a modern audience.
It's unfairly characterized as a love story - it's really a hate story: hate and revenge; and what Heathcliff feels for Cathy is more of an unstoppable obsession that makes him gloat in the destruction of anyone who stood between him and her.
I keep coming back to this one, because the depth of emotion in the characters makes many passages a joy to read again and again.
