Wuthering Heights (Version 2)

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Emily Bronte

Narrated By: Ruth Golding

Date: September 2016

Duration: 14 hours 50 minutes

Summary:

Emily Brontë's only novel, published in 1847 under the pseudonym Ellis Bell, tells the tale of the all-encompassing and passionate, yet thwarted, love between Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw, and how this unresolved passion eventually destroys them and many around them.

Now considered a classic of English literature, Wuthering Heights met with mixed reviews by critics when it first appeared, with many horrified by the stark depictions of mental and physical cruelty. Though Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre was originally considered the best of the Brontë sisters' works, many subsequent critics of Wuthering Heights argued that its originality and achievement made it superior.

    Although I never understood Joseph, Ruth did a good job. It’s a classic known for being a bit dark, so there’s that. But I listened to the end and liked it.

    I am so bored with this book. I’m about half way through but I had to take a break for a couple weeks. I keep hoping something, anything of interest will happen but I am losing hope.

    Hard to follow

    It's such a classic that I persevered. It took me numerous bored and irritated starts but about 4 hours in I got into it. The reader was very well-suited and there was something captivating in the dark twists and turns of the characters and story. After finishing, I went back and re-listened to the first 4-5 hours and was able to pick up so much more. I loved listening to Jane Eyre, and tho I'm glad that I've now 'read' Wuthering Heights, just know that it's a dark experience with very little redeeming or upllifting about it.

    Ruth Golding is excellent but I had to put it on 1.25 speed because it was so slow. (I might not have minded the pace if I had enjoyed the book more, but it was a slog.)

    Very dramatic story but with a good ending

  • Alana P.

    This is my favorite book of all time. I was scared to listen to it bc I was afraid I wouldn’t like it as much as hearing it in my own voice. Ruth’s real accent and character portrayals are way better than the ones in my head. I understood Joseph better than when I’ve read it. I will listen again.
