Overview

Wuthering Heights is the story of love turning on itself and of the violence and misery that result from thwarted passion. A book of immense power, it is filled with the raw beauty of the moors and a deep compassion for the conflicting destinies of men and women. Emily Bronte lived out her life in the wilderness of the moors and died a year after her extraordinary novel was published.
The story of stubborn Cathy and wild-as-the-wind Heathcliff has been a favorite since its original publication in 1848. The novel begins with Lockwood, a tenant, taking up residence close to Wuthering Heights. His landlord, Mr. Heathcliff, proves to be surly, unfriendly and rude. When Lockwood discovers a mildewed book with the names Catherine Earnshaw, Catherine Heathcliff and Catherine Linton scratched on its cover he begins to read and starts on a strange tale that proves irresistible . . .

I had never read this book, nor seen the movie. I thought it would be a tragic love story. And it's nothing like I expected! Very dark, but it's a fascinating read.

I have seen the movie, but had never read/listened to the book. This book was long, but well narrated. I'd highly recommend the book to anyone looking to listen to a classic. Well worth the time!
