Delightfully written, well researched, honest and insightful; a delight to any reader but particularly to one who comes from Dorset or knows that part of England well. Thus, I am biased! However, the author endears Hardy to the reader without adornment, gradually adding more and more events that attest to the character of the man. It ends with a sublime period of Hardy's life, with poetry as the recurrent backdrop, a most fitting finale. Realxing, eye opening and a marvellous book for a sunny, country weekend.

I have been a fan of Thomas Hardy for many years. This book did a remarkable job of telling an intimate story of his private life and work. I have a new-found respect for the author. All Hardy fans would benefit from listening to this comprehensive biography. I might have enjoyed it more read by a different narrator. That's the reason for the 4 stars.
