Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

This Penguin Classic is performed by Aimee Lou Wood, star of Netflix's Sex Education. This definitive recording includes an introduction by Pauline Nestor.

Lockwood, the new tenant of Thrushcross Grange on the bleak Yorkshire moors, is forced to seek shelter one night at Wuthering Heights, the home of his landlord. There he discovers the history of the tempestuous events that took place years before: of the intense passion between the foundling Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw, and her betrayal of him. As Heathcliff's bitterness and vengeance is visited upon the next generation, their innocent heirs must struggle to escape the legacy of the past.

MASTERPIECE

It is WORTH THE CREDIT to listen to this version narrated by Aimee Lou Wood. She is a FANTASTIC narrator, and brings each character to life with incredible accents. Now in to the actual book:
This novel, this MASTERPIECE surpassed not I my my expectations of the work itself, but of classic literature in general. While it is often shelved beside Jane Eyre or Pride and Prejudice, it is nothing if the sort. Emily Bronte’s novel is GOTHIC. She has created an incredibly atmospheric world within the moors of Wuthering Heights and the Grange, to the point that it is nearly a character itself. Her storyline is, by simplest definition, EPIC. It documents the lives of two generations, tracking the causes and effects one’s choices can have on the future. The characters are remarkably relatable and come to life off the pages, especially with the aid Emily Bronte’s excellent SARCASTIC style. Truly I laughed out loud throughout. It is as accessible and engaging to a novice as it is to a seasoned reader of classics. It may have the most quotable insults since Shakespeare. Yet, intermingled with the witty comedy is truly devastating tragedy. This is NOT a romance, by any means. It is a portrait of excellently crafted characters, their development throughout their lives, and their interactions with one another in a small community (basically two families). It tells the story of what happens when an outsider comes into a set structure and overturns it completely, and the swinging balance of equilibrium. It is a story of love, but more so of regret, loss, revenge, and forgiveness. It is truly one of the most incredible works I have ever read, far exceeding other classics of equal or greater prestige. It lingers with me still, and I’m still reeling from the unexpected twists and turns of both plot and emotion… and taking notes for my own work. Whether you’re looking to read one of the greatest pieces of literature in English history, or simply searching for a story unlike any other, Wuthering Heights may be the answer of your longings.

Eternal love, eternal pain

The narrator Aimee Lou Wood (like Kate Bush) does a great Cathy, in particular because of her high-pitched voice that contains a mixture of the childish and the wise.
She is thus a witch and her voice is her instrument an impish violin-song of the damned of fairyland with it’s bratty temptation of Heathcliff that delights in his suffering, as well as the base using of Edgar Linton for whom she has contempt, and even when she tells him how contemptible he is to her, she is still, by that voice, able to lure him back and ultimately to his own death.
Both Cathy and Heathcliff despise all other beings and are full of cruelty to all worldly creatures, and each spends their lives tormenting all the other characters as punishment for their own failure to be true to themselves and be together.
The producer should have got a man each, and each a different man, for Lockwood and Heathcliff.
My favourite scene is when Heathcliff is trying to get into the house at Wuthering Heights when Isabella, only half-willingly warns him that Hindly is there with a shotgun waiting to murder him, and she yells out to her hated husband that he should go and lie down on Cathy’s grave until he dies, and thereby do everyone a favour. This moment shows the degradation that all have been reduced to through being exposed to or being caught in the middle of Heathcliff and Cathy’s violent eternal love.
