compelling and intense; the narrator grew on me
Like the previous reviewer, I was a little taken aback by the crackly voiced, "old lady-sounding" narrator at first. However, as the book proceded, I decided that I actually liked this narrator. Her voice works b/c much of the narration is told by the housekeeper, Nellie. Moreover, she does a fine job with the voices of the younger women and the accents of the locals, both male and female.
It had been years since I'd picked up Wuthering Heights, and this audio book was a pleasure. The cast of tortured characters and senseless and unjust wrongs propels one to continue even while questioning why such people should matter. They simply do. It is a disturbing, haunting story, with--at long last--a happy ending of sorts.

Better than reading it
I tried to read this book several times and just couldnt get into it- but then I saw this audio version and decided to give it antother shot.
It's kind of a bizzare story, but I also found it to be entertaining and interesting. The narration is fairly good as well.
If you always wanted to know what all the fuss is about regarding Wuthering Heights then this is the way to find out.
