This Story Is Sweet

Publisher's Summary

Released in our ‘Young Adult Classics’ format, Emily Brontë’s classic story of passion and enduring love is a masterpiece of the gothic genre. Menacing, mysterious Heathcliff and willful, beautiful Cathy are two of the best-known characters in all of English literature. Freda Dowie gives a compelling reading of a novel as bleak and elemental as the moors upon which it is set.

Same old, same old

Is there anything you would change about this book?

It's Wuthering Heights. What can I say. It's boring. Sorry, I know that it's a classic, but it is so depressing. Even the name "Wuthering" conjures depression as well as the names of the characters. There's nothing wrong with the performance. The readers do a very good job of relaying the feeling of the book. (I read it years ago in high school and had to read it again recently for a book club. That's the only reason I see for reading this ... if you have to do so!)

Would you ever listen to anything by Emily Brontë again?

Probably not.

Have you listened to any of Freda Dowie and Ken Drury ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to their performances on other books; however, very competent.

Was Wuthering Heights worth the listening time?

Nope! (Okay, it did help to listen to it before going to bed. I fell asleep quite quickly.)

Any additional comments?

In general, I like your audio books. And I think that they are good values.
