Summary

Summary

Perhaps the most haunting and tragic love story ever written, Wuthering Heights is the tale of Heathcliff, a brooding, troubled orphan, and his doomed love for Catherine Earnshaw. His desire for her leads him to madness when Catherine is made to marry a wealthy lord, sending Heathcliff on a lifelong quest to avenge himself upon those who stole his only love and his life. In this gripping chronicle of the never-ending conflict between the heart and the mind—and the pain and passion of true romance—Emily Brontë created an unforgettable classic saga of love, desperation, vengeance, and forgiveness. Published just one year before Brontë's death in 1848 at the age of thirty, Wuthering Heights endures as one of the world's greatest love stories and a classic of English literature.

Editorial Reviews

[Flosnik] masterfully alters her voice for each character.... Without being overly dramatic, Flosnik inserts passion into the dialogue and vividly conveys Brontë's imagery. AudioFile
“Emily Brontë‘s sorrowful story of doomed romance between two childhood friends finds its voice in Anne Flosnik’s narration. The diverse range of characters in this classic could present a difficult challenge for a sole narrator, but Flosnik conquers it with alacrity and enthusiasm. She masterfully alters her voice for each character and maintains keen attention to the varied British accents. Without being overly dramatic, Flosnik inserts passion into the dialogue and vividly conveys Brontë’s imagery. She captures the cruel infatuation of Heathcliff and the dramatic ranting of his beloved Catherine. Alternately, Flosnik delivers the humble narration of maidservant Nellie in kind, measured tones. Overall, Flosnik draws listeners into the story, interweaving passionate lamentation with articulate narration.” AudioFile
“I discovered for myself Wuthering Heights; I think I read that book every year of my life for fifteen years. I simply adored it.” Katherine Anne Porter, Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times bestselling author

Emily Brontë (1818–1848), sister of Anne and Charlotte, published only one novel in her career, Wuthering Heights. Though she died just one year after its publication and never knew of its success, the story of doomed love and revenge went on to earn its place among the masterpieces of English literature.
