Excellent scort stories

Interesting to hear Hardy's writing used for shorter stories. Less familiar stories, although I understand that they were dramatized for television in the early 1970's

Entertaining miscellany of short stories.

Each story interesting in isolation and gripping as a whole.Excellent narration.I would recommend Wessex Tales as a good introduction to the works of Thomas Hardy to those not familiar with his particular style of writing.
