An excellent, spellbinding reading of a complex, dark classic. David Timson and Janet McTeer give brilliant performances, he telling Mr. Lockwood's part of the tragic tale, and she Ellen Dean's. Their voice characterizations of the other characters are perfectly done, both actors shifting easily from the King's English to authentic Yorkshire dialect. (McTeer's clear rendering of Joseph's nearly unintelligible dialect is particularly laudable.) Highly recommended.
This highly emotional story is often refereed to as a love story, but it is not my definition of love. I would say it's an obsession & selfishness story. Never-the-less, it is worthy of it's place among the ranks of "Great Literature".
Heathcliff & Catherine's broken hearts are redeemed in Hareton & Cathy's love story
The narrators performed the characters very well, keeping clear characterization in mind. It was easy to keep up with the appearance of multiple characters with the same name because of this.
The feisty Catherine Linton is best performed in this audio book, though all characters were well played.
Heathcliff's final days with Catherine's spectre and the discovery of his corpse were the most moving.
Great book, must read and have. Love is hard and no matter how you act if you are mean and evil you will know love but love will not know you.
Love reading the classics -- especially with great narrators.
This book. The characters were unique and yet believable. So much passion and energy to lift anyone from the mundane.
Everyone should read this at least once ! Bronte was well beyond her time in every respect the novel is an absolute classic and this was a brilliant audio production.
wuthering heights is my favorite book. I can re-listen this book a million times. listening to it has been amazing with these two narrators. I love it as background noise and on my long drive home.
One of the best audible books I've heard! Superb performance by Janet McTeer, who reads the majority of the book and David Timson. Really enjoyed this story and I believe many will as well!
I discovered Wuthering Heights through the 92 move. So I read the book and fell in love utterly for the story. In a first moment, the audiobook did not meet my expectations. I thought Janet McTeer and David Timor would perform a audiodrama but instead they acted only Ms Dean and Mr Lockwoods dialogues and reported speech. Although, as soon as I realized that it was according to the narration structure of the book, I enjoyed a lot!
Wuthering Heights is a must read classic. This Audio book version was read very well with the exception of the character of Joseph. I felt like I had lost most of all of what is said by Joseph due to the narrators heavy accent.
