Over and over again. It is such a compelling story.
I was pretty horrified by it. In the films based on this book Heathcliff is presented as lovelorn and obsessed, but in the book he is rather a fiend. The ending was very compelling.
For the story as a whole, I did not like it. For the readers, there are two; a male and a female. The male has a perfectly normal British accent and is easy to understand. The female reader is easy to understand when she is speaking a female part; however, when she reads any of the male dialogue, you can't understand a word she says. It's really distracting.
Such beautiful narration by Janet Mcteer and David Timson, I've fallen in love with this book all over again. You've got me hooked up to audible.
I hadn't read this in many years and had forgotten most of it, but this audio version brought it back with new lustre and was beautifully read with great emotion and intensity. I thoroughly enjoyed it and had a different take on some of the characters than I did when I was younger! I'd never thought of the importance Nelly played in the story, but she was often the catalyst. A wonderful story with exciting characters.
The narration team of this book, made the story come off the pages, as if you there with the characters yourself. They have done Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights justice, in every way. What a story, enjoyed it lots.
I believe a previous reviewer said it best when he said the book should be called "What a bunch of a**holes." After listening to the Audiobook I ended up watching the recent PBS film adaption of the book. Mostly to get a different perspective on this classic story. I honestly felt that the book was a bit of a downer. Janet McTeer has a nice voice but her vocal impersonations of some of the characters made them sound so miserable, wretched and incredibly annoying, and as a result I felt no connection or sympathy with ANY of the characters.
I read all the books
This is the one to get. I could listen to Janet McTeer all day! Her voice is just lovely--and she does a fantastic job with all the different characters she's called upon to voice. Her men actually sound masculine, in sharp contrast to flighty, girlish Cathy.
Janet McTeer provides the best narration of a novel that I have ever heard. Every character she performs has a uniquely recognizable voice that brings them to life in a way that no other audiobook can match.
The first time that I read Wuthering Heights,it was in the original text and was hard to get into, but worth it when I realized the importance of it to set the mood and atmosphere. Listening to this version was not like hearing the origninal dialect, but so well worth listening to because of the remarkable readings of the actors that brought it to life as I remembered it.
This audio version held up to the story that I have loved for many years.
