Publisher's Summary

"If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be...I am Heathcliff...." Catherine Earnshaw's passionate statement reveals the core of Emily Bronte's tempestuous literary masterpiece. Meeting as children, Catherine and Heathcliff begin a relationship that grows into obsession as family, class, and fate work against them as much as their own jealous natures.

    "compelling and intense; the narrator grew on me"

    Like the previous reviewer, I was a little taken aback by the crackly voiced, "old lady-sounding" narrator at first. However, as the book proceded, I decided that I actually liked this narrator. Her voice works b/c much of the narration is told by the housekeeper, Nellie. Moreover, she does a fine job with the voices of the younger women and the accents of the locals, both male and female.

    It had been years since I'd picked up Wuthering Heights, and this audio book was a pleasure. The cast of tortured characters and senseless and unjust wrongs propels one to continue even while questioning why such people should matter. They simply do. It is a disturbing, haunting story, with--at long last--a happy ending of sorts.

    "Better than reading it"

    I tried to read this book several times and just couldnt get into it- but then I saw this audio version and decided to give it antother shot.

    It's kind of a bizzare story, but I also found it to be entertaining and interesting. The narration is fairly good as well.

    If you always wanted to know what all the fuss is about regarding Wuthering Heights then this is the way to find out.

    "Drama and Evil "

    I'm still struggling with why people find this book so fascinating that they read it more than once. I can see how, 168 years ago, this book may have been so entrancing for those who read it. Maybe even 50 years ago, but it was more high drama, evilness of the villain, and naivety of the other characters than my taste can swallow. But for the sake of finishing the "classic" I pressed on.
    At times it was difficult to discern one character from the next for the narrator didn't have a lot of differentiation in her voice.
    All in all, I don't feel as though it weren't entertaining or interesting, I just feel it a bit over the top for my taste of romance and drama. I can now say I know the story, but I wouldn't seek out to read or listen to it again.

    "Horrendous narration"

    This is a great story, at least from what I remember when I read it 10 years ago! I enjoyed some of the other classics on audio so much and decided to give this one a try. The narration is awful, so difficult to understand and it seems like it's on fast forward. I had to slow the narration on my ipod so that I could understand what was being said. Very disappointed at the quality of this audiobook, this is a first as I have enjoyed every other narrator I've heard thusfar. The one star is not directed at the story, but at the awful narration!

    "wonderful narration of my favorite novel"

    I love the way the narrator doesn't just read the words, but changes her voice and accent with each character. She really made them come to life in my mind as I listened. Thank you Flo Gibson!

    "I just HAD to read a classic..."

    I have been trying to read all the classics, and this one had been on my list for a while. YAWN. It was hard to hear/understand the narrator at points, which made an only mildly entertaining book a chore to get through.

    I have noticed that many classics have more subtle themes and plot lines, but this one was quite dreary. It isn't a happy story, and it is slow going.

    "Couldn't finish- Narration is terrible"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I honestly have no idea. I only listened to about 20 minutes or so before deciding it wasn't worth it.


    Has Wuthering Heights [Recorded Books Edition] turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. My biggest issue with this book was the narration. I can't tell if I thought the story was boring because it was boring or if I was just annoyed at the narration.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A different narrator all together. The narrator's voice was too raspy and hard to understand.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Just annoyed.


    Any additional comments?

    I have no idea if this book is good or not. Perhaps it would be good with a different narrator.

    "Okay"

    I'm an avid reader and always wondered what all the fuss was about Wuthering Heights so I decided to read the book but just couldn't get into it, I recently started listening to audiobooks so when I saw this book I was ready to give it another go...although the story was okay, the female narration of a male character "bugged" me and I couldn't get beyond the first few chapters. Wish I could rate the book better as it pains me to give a classic story such a mediocre review.
