Publisher's Summary

This story of a proud rural beauty and the three men who court her is the novel that first made Thomas Hardy famous.

Despite the violent ends of several of its major characters, Far from the Madding Crowd is the sunniest and least brooding of Hardy's great novels. The strong-minded Bathsheba Everdene - and the devoted shepherd, obsessed farmer, and dashing soldier who vie for her favor - move through a beautifully realized late 19th-century agrarian landscape, still almost untouched by the industrial revolution and the encroachment of modern life.

    "Wonderful performance that brings new life to this classic"

    Nicholas Guy Smith gives a pitch perfect of Thomas Hardy's masterpiece. He does full justice to the range of voices, personalities, moods and accents. I had not realized before how very funny Hardy can be. There are passages of dialogue, especially among the working men of Bathsheba's farm, that are hilarious. Guy Smith gives them their full measure of entertainment value. Hardy's ability to take a godlike view of a whole scene in one moment, and then to zero in on the poignantly human details of his individual characters, is most impressive and moving. This is one I will listen to more than once.

    "Not my cup of tea"

    Note to self: no more classics. I am not suited to them.
    Note to others: my review in no way reflects the quality of the story or the telling of it. Please experience this novel on your own and form your own opinion.

    "Awful!!"

    This is the most boring and long, drawn out story I have ever "read". I've tried twice to go back to it.... I can't take it another minute. Wish I could get a refund.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Far From the Madding Crowd (Movie Tie-in Edition) to be better than the print version?

    I don't always enjoy the old classics, but I found this delightful..... could wait for the end, for the right reasons!
