Reviews for Wuthering Heights

AudioFile Reviews 2006 December/January 2007
Slamming doors. Jangling of keys. The whispery, husky voice of a man on his deathbed. The anguish of a selfish woman realizing her paramour has overheard her lack of faith. The sound effects of this production create a completely absorbing experience. Appropriately haunting pieces of music connect the episodes, and the ensemble cast is perfectly matched to deliver the characters of The Grange and Wuthering Heights. The recording features outstanding performances by Amanda Root as the high-strung, na•ve Cathy and John Duttine as the dark and ultimately cruel Heathcliff. Duttine's masterful scene of Heathcliff's morbid visit to Cathy's grave is psychologically rich and truly chilling. R.F. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine

This audiobook offers a good introduction to Brontæ's romantic tale of the tormented relationship between Heathcliff and Cathy, two of the best known protagonists in nineteenth-century literature. Nadia May gives a spirited reading; she characterizes voices with enthusiasm but handles female voices more successfully than male ones. In all, May's overall tone is so strident that it becomes somewhat irritating. C.R.A. Copyright 1999 AudioFile Reviews
