A half sad and nearly 'half' glad story was being unfolded, here and there, up and down, touching and withdrawing...Once again Simon Vance has given his master blessing. It is almost OK to look beyond the faults of the characters. From time to time, it's comforting to know the present of the 'goodness', presented by and manifested through a reddleman. It is a 'real' story worth sharing.
This book is an excellent example of how wonderful a listening experience can be when a fantastic writer combines with a gifted narrator. Thomas Hardy writes in a way that makes mundane details seem enthralling. While the story is entertaining enough, on its own it wouldn't compel four stars; it's the writing that does the trick. Well worth a listen.

I first read The Return of the Native when I was 14 years old. I fell in love with Eustacia Vye then and she will always be my first love.
The narration is perfect, capturing the characters on the heath in all their nuanced glory. Simon Vance is the best Audible narrator.
A perfect Audible experience.
