The passionate and tragic story of Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff is one of the high points of nineteenth-century Romantic literature. In the relationship of Cathy and Heathcliff, and in the wild, bleak Yorkshire Moors of its setting, Wuthering Heights creates a world of its own, conceived with a disregard for convention and an instinct for poetry and the darkest depths of the human soul in torment.

The best performance
Wuthering Heights is admittedly my favourite book and so my review is bound to be biased. However the fantastic narration by Patricia Routledge brings the characters, the scenery, the raw emotions startlingly to life and so every single passion of the suffering characters becomes your passion, or more accurately your anguish. I have read the print version a good few times and yet discovered new and more poignant aspects that I had missed, or not given my attention to, in reading alone. Hats off to the narrator for a faultless and quite brilliant delivery of this fantastic work of creation that brings you to the Moors and places you in every scene.
The tenant's account of the night he spent at the heights on his first visit there.
I have not yet.listened to others but will be doing so soon.
Ah, this can only be the ending.
Only that I can and will listen to this again and again and, yes, again.
