Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Michael Page, Laural Merlington

Classics • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1992

Brontë’s treasured tale of willfulness, passion, vengeance, and redemption has never shone more brightly than in this production read by Michael Page and Laural Merlington. Page, as the hapless tenant of Thrushcross Grange, and Merlington, as housekeeper Nellie Dean, together recount the story of Catherine and Heathcliff. Soulmates from childhood, their pride and tempers separate them as adults, until the very last moments of Catherine’s life. Page’s flawless elocution and detachment highlight, rather than cover, the raw emotion in Heathcliff past and present. Merlington transitions nimbly among various dialects, ages, and genders, all the while maintaining the narrative character of Nellie Dean. Together the two bring balance and elegant professionalism to an exquisite work of literature. R.P.L. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 03]
