Set in the Yorkshire moors, the ill-fated, passionate love story of Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff is beautiful, haunting, and sometimes harrowing.

If a person wasn't depressed when they started this book, it certainly would follow after. I must confess that I only got halfway through. I remember my mother as a kid referring to Cathy and Heathcliff glowingly as a testament to enduring love. I forget the mindset of martyrdom some equate to "love". This was the largest collection of disgusting human beings I had the displeasure of coming to know in a book. I have to battle my own critical and negative inner voice without inviting the hate and revenge filled ravings of others even though they are fictional. I read to be uplifted as well as entertained. The book is eloquently and well written and the narration by Flo Gibson is perfect. She is one of my all time favorite narrators. Before giving up on it after all these many hours of listening, I quickly read some notes on the book in Wikipedia to see if there was going to be a change for the better in the story line.....nope, not much.
