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.

Great Narration

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

Beautifully read

Always a wonderful text but Juliet Stevenson inhabits the characters with empathy and compassion, bringing the story to a level of connection which is unsurpassed.

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!
