Publisher's Summary

Featured title on PBS's The Great American Read in 2018

Raised together on the Yorkshire moors, Heathcliff and Catherine become lovers and soul mates so utterly inseparable that their destiny seems inevitable. But when Catherine's desire for social status results in her marriage to Heathcliff's wealthy rival, Heathcliff is consumed by revenge. And no one in his path will be spared.

Admired for its stark originality and condemned for its fiendish affront to the senses, Wuthering Heights polarized critics. For generations of readers since, its themes of gender inequality, religious hypocrisy, social climbing, and the violent extremes of romantic obsession resonate to this day.

Revised edition: Previously published as Wuthering Heights, this edition of Wuthering Heights (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

An excellent book, beautifully narrated

I've always loved this book. It seems a dark and dreary story, but yet so beautiful in the eloquence of the story and the building of each Character! I absolutely loved every moment of the book and feel somewhat sad that it is over!!

Much ado?

The audiobook is excellently read. After finishing I wonder why it is known as a great book. Every is first class, yes. It's the story that I had expected for more.

Audio

There was a lot of glitches in the audio that caused a discourse I didn’t notice until I played it without my earbuds.

Very sad, with inhumanity and humanity in the same person

Glimpses into the inhumanity in some people, who desire to torment others for pleasure. And yet at times those same inhumane people have hearts, which show their vulnerability at times. This story also reveals the selfishness that can grow in the heart so easily.
Excellent narration. I was only confused once or twice as to who was speaking. A man narrates Lockwood’s part, and a woman narrates the tale told by Mrs. Dean.

Bronte Brought Back!

The two narrators were perfectly in sync with each other for this reading of a true classic. Very nicely performed, Bronte has been brought back to life in this tale of heartache and misery. Very evocative, would recommend highly.
