Publisher's Summary

Here is Thomas Hardy's timeless novel, read by Julie Christie.

Far from the Madding Crowd is perhaps the best-known of Hardy's works. The story centres around the beautiful and wilful Bathsheba Everdene, mistress of Weatherbury Upper Farm, and the three men who love her. Hardy combines outstanding description of West Country rural life with a deep sense of romantic passion.

Normally I prefer audio books complete and unabridged, without filtering or embellishment. But I make an exception for Julie Christie's lovely clear reading of this classic. I was surprised how enjoyable I found this audio book.
