Summary

Wuthering Heights is the sole novel of Emily Brontë, who died a year after its publication at the age of 30. A tale of exceptional emotional and imaginative force, it is an arresting vision of metaphysical passion, in which nature and society, heaven and hell, and dynamic and passive forces are powerfully juxtaposed.
Wuthering Heights is the name of an old house, high up on the Yorkshire moors, occupied by the Earnshaw family. Events are set in motion by the arrival of Heathcliff, a child waif who has been living the life of a wild animal in the slums of Liverpool. Adopted by the kind Mr. Earnshaw, he is bullied and humiliated after Earnshaw’s death by the new master of the house, Hindley. But Heathcliff’s passionate and ferocious nature finds its completion in Earnshaw’s daughter, Catherine.

Critic reviews

“There is something magnificent about the depth and intensity of their love….it is hard not to listen in awe when Catherine cries out, ‘I am Heathcliff! He's always, always in my mind; not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself, but as my own being.’" (Erica Bauermeister, 500 Great Books by Women)
"It is as if Emily Brontë could tear up all that we know human beings by, and fill these unrecognizable transparencies with such a gust of life that they transcend reality." (Virginia Woolf)

Wuthering Heights

Very enjoyable, the narrator used different accents to express the differences of the characters. .I.was able to follow the story and get as engrossed as I do.when reading well-written novels. This was my first audio book, it will not be my last.

I loved listening to this book that I read as a teenager, I got so much more out of it this time and the narrator was fabulous!

What an awful story!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I'd read this book as a teenage English Major and nostalgically thought it would be good to hear it again. Was I wrong! It is nuts!

What do you think your next listen will be?

A more enjoyable current work of fiction!

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

None that I can easily think of - except to realize that the 'good old days' in England were pretty brutal - and that we've come a long way from the cruelty of family relations that Bronte writes about.
