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.

Made my boring car journeys fly by!

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!
