I have read this book, watched a movie and now a audiobook. I love this story. So romantic and sad as well. I never tire of this classic.

Subject: one of the best books ever written
I love this book. I've read it dozens of times and I plan on reading it dozens more. I love the narrator's voice too. She gives each character life with subtle intonation of her voice.

one of my favorite books brilliantly read. Agree with the comments about Cathy's voice though

Excellent job of narration from Ruth Golding. Bravo Ruth!!! The story was good, but she started loosing me towards the end of the book. Sad how life must have been for some in that century. I highly recommend this book.

Ruth Golding does a terrific job reading this book and the recording is very clear with zero background noise. I wasn't very fond of the story line itself but I loved the use of the English language in this book; which made it fun and interesting to listen to.

Although I didn't like the characters, or particularly enjoy the story, Emily Bronte's beautiful use of the English Language was impressive. I thought that Ruth Golding did a fantastic job with the reading and the character's voices. Excelent recording!

Ruth Golding did a fantastic job. In depth and engaging, and had a different voice for every character. I would most definitely listen to her again.

Subject: Wuthering Heights-awesome listening!
I agree with Sarah T completely.....Ruth Golding is great at reading it and giving life to all characters but she makes Catherine sound very silly and frivolous....She doesn't sound like the heroine of this great novel....

What amazing narration. Ruth Golding changes her voice with such ease from one character to another and with so much emotion. A thought provoking novel between love and hate, vengence and forgiveness.

I've never read the book before, so I looked up Joseph's parts... couldn't understand a word of it without this recording! Well done!

Subject: Joseph's dialogue is perfect!
If you look up Joseph's dialogue in the book, it's barely readable. Ruth Golding does a brilliant job interpreting his jargon.

Ruth Golding is amazing, such great voices and emotion. My only caveat was related to Joseph's voice, as I did find his words a little too difficult to understand. On the whole, an amazing job.

Ruth Golding read this amazing book wonderfully. I enjoyed it greatly.

Ruth Golding is an outstanding reader, obviously a trained voice actor...wish there were more such outstanding voice readers. My only gripe with her reading is the interpretation of Cathy's voice and character; she makes her sound rather silly and idiotic, almost like one of the screeching women on Monty Python's Flying Circus. I've always thought of Cathy as having a bit more gravitas. As for Joseph, his speech is rendered in the book as a kind of dialect, and it's meant to be difficult to understand to modern readers I suppose. All in all, this is possibly the best recording I have managed to find. As good as anything you would pay for.
