Audio Book 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 nineteenth-century agrarian landscape, still almost untouched by the industrial revolution and the encroachment of modern life.

    Thomas Hardy's Tess of d'Urbervilles has always been a classic favorite and now I have a second favorite book by him. I looked forward every day to hearing the story...I miss it now that it's done. I loved the narrator's voice.
