Wuthering Heights


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(3.5 stars; 33 reviews)

A tale of passion and vengeance set in the bleak Yorkshire moors, Wuthering Heights depicts the mutual love of Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff till destruction and death rend the narration. There is no place for remorse in our antihero's breast as he sets about ruining the lives of those he considers responsible for his own misery. Yet cruelty is only to be met with compassion in the following generations. Romantic, impassioned and wild, it is also a dark journey in the human soul.

(Summary by Lady Maria). (11 hr 33 min)

Giving constructive feedback is one thing; being rude and offensive is another. Show some appreciation for other peoples' hard work.

Cute


(4 stars)

I know people said the woman with the heavy accent was a pain to listen to but I absolutely loved it when she spoke. It keeps me interested, as opposed to some of the males who just drones on in some monotone voice. I loved it!

A beautiful voice


(5 stars)

It is about time that Wuthering Heights was read with flair and enthusiasm. The accent is lovely and as an English literature teacher, I am delighted with your recording. Thank you very much.

Need a good english speaker


(2 stars)

It's nice and almost attractive to hear a foreigner reading of good literature. However, the speaker hasn't perfected English enough to be reading literature. Unfortunately, it's a labor to listen too.

Another version

If you don't like this version (which is a early project, so it's understandable that the sound quality may not be very good), you may enjoy this one more: <a href="http://archive.org/details/wuthering_heights_rg_librivox" rel="nofollow">http://archive.org/details/wuthering_heights_rg_librivox</a>

Hmm


(2 stars)

Some of the readers on here are just, plainly, annoying to listen to. There's one – no offence, please – latina / spanish-speaking woman who makes no attempt to read outside of her deep accent. What I mean by that is that it makes it terribly, terribly difficult to understand because she cannot construct the "th" sound, and her diphthongs sound very Spanish. Honestly, I had to pick up the book around chapter 18 because some of the pronunciations were just that deplorable. However, on the other hand: there are a few people (one man especially) who read quite well. One man uses inflection and changes his tone or different characters. Unfortunately, I believe that was only one chapter. Other than that, don't waste your bandwidth.
