If Thomas Hardy is not exactly one of your favourites among the Nineteenth Century's Literary Greats, the narration of this novel by Jamie Parker will change your mind. Promise.

It more than exceeded my expectations. Jamie Parker does the Wessex rustic voices brilliantly. I would happily listen to him reading any books.
I love Hardy's tales.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
The problem with having a movie adaptation of a great novel is that many people will never read the novel. In the case of this classic, that is a shame. The story, the characters, the natural setting and the action are all presented in beautiful prose that is rarely heard in contemporary writing. This unabridged release, narrated by the tremendously-talented Jamie Parker, is exquisitely "acted", with each character having their own "voice", and every sentence is phrased in a way that captures the ear and feeds the imagination of the listener. I could not be more pleased with an audiobook, and would have given Parker 6 stars if this were an option!
What did you like best about this story?
The prose is beautiful and descriptive and I felt transported to the place and time of the story through the excellent voice acting of Jamie Parker.
Which scene was your favorite?
Sorry, I couldn't possibly choose just one. The crafting of the story is even-handed and exquisite throughout.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
I wouldn't. See my initial comment.
