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.

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

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.

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!
