Publisher's Summary

The wild and passionate tale of Cathy and Heathcliff's impossible love for each other and its phenomenal setting on the blasted Yorkshire moors has to be one of the best-known love affairs in literature.

When it was first published in 1847, Wuthering Heights was greeted with a fair degree of outrage, not only for the open description of desire and disaster but for the almost unheard of method of telling the story using unreliable witnesses whose tales and points of view open out from each other, leaving the audience to piece together the truth of the story.

Only such novels as Mary Shelley's Frankenstein had previously attempted to challenge the reader in this way, and it is only in the last century that the true genius of Emily Brontë's work has begun to be appreciated.

Prepare to be as swept up and buffeted by the extraordinary power of Brontë's storytelling as Cathy and Heathcliff are by the winds of Wuthering Heights.

    "A bizarre story, an ingenious performance!"

    Well, Heathcliff remains a psycho for me, but having listened to this book as an adult, I see that there are more reasons than just his sociopathic nature for his awfulness. Cathy is a tragic character who did love both Heathcliff and Edgar Linton, for such different reasons, and chose the safer, reliable life with Edgar, to the torment of both herself and Heathcliff... This is beautifully written, with rich, deep characters, but sheesh, what a dark and narrow world! Juliet Stevenson is brilliant as always, and I loved her short commentary here after the completion of the novel. Good stuff.

    "On old favorite"

    Juliet Stevenson perfectly sums up my feelings about Wuthering Heights at the end of her narration. I loved and romanticized the book as a young girl, but as an adult I see the tragic selfishness of the couple that leads to so much misery. Stevenson does s beautiful job as narrator.

    "Great Narration"

    Stevenson emulated each character with perfect poise. From all of Heathcliff's complexities to the adolescent Isabella, the novel was retold beautifully.

    "Worth Listening for the Narration Alone"

    I'm not a big fan of Wuthering Heights ... for me, the story is, for lack of a better term, a "downer" as we said back in the day - lol. The overriding theme of malevolence and cruelty is woven through every chapter, and the only real redemption, from my perspective, are the finely-drawn and sometimes amusing characters.

    However, to listen to Juliet Stevenson narrate this work is to be lifted out of our surroundings. Each character is given his/her own voice and accent - they come to life in such a way that I feel as though I'm attending a theatrical performance. Her dialects are spot on ... Joseph, Heathcliff's servant, is highly amusing when brought to life by Ms. Stevenson.

    In any case, if you're new to Wuthering Heights, stay with it - after the first chapters the narration will draw you in, and hold you captive.

    Juliet Stevenson is amazing! The character voices and accents are all on point. I've read wuthering heights many, many times and I picked up more out of the story from this performance.

    "literature the way it was meant to be"

    I'm so grateful that I discovered this book. I loved the author and I love the narrator! truth be told I went through several titles looking for a narrator that I would like and I found Juliet Stevenson's picture and knew it was meant to be.

    "Splendid Narration Brings Out New Facets"
    Any additional comments?

    Juliet Stevenson's summation of her experience narrating Wuthering Heights (located at the very end of the novel) also sums up my experience.

    I also thought I knew the novel, having read it when I was young and watched several versions of the book as film.

    Ms. Stevenson brings out the characters in such a marvelous way.

    "I really wanted to like this classic. I Didn't "

    I know its old...it's a classic. But I hated the characters and nothing really happened. Maybe if i grew up with this book I could love it. Just disappointed that it was so dull and the use of the word ejaculated was so over used.

    "Better than any film adaptation"

    What a fabulous narration of a brilliant book. I was mesmerised by the story and the wonderful voices of the characters from Juliette Stephenson. Having read Wuthering Heights in my youth, I thought I knew the novel, but this adaptation has shown me something new. I remember Heathcliffe as a romantic character, but my goodness he was cruel!

    "Wuthering Heights"

    Wuthering Heights is an epic novel that I have read previously. However, Juliet Stevenson is a superb narrator who brings every character to life and made the novel real.
