Nicholas Guy Smith gives a pitch perfect of Thomas Hardy's masterpiece. He does full justice to the range of voices, personalities, moods and accents. I had not realized before how very funny Hardy can be. There are passages of dialogue, especially among the working men of Bathsheba's farm, that are hilarious. Guy Smith gives them their full measure of entertainment value. Hardy's ability to take a godlike view of a whole scene in one moment, and then to zero in on the poignantly human details of his individual characters, is most impressive and moving. This is one I will listen to more than once.

What a sad tale of love. Way to be persistent Farmer Oak. Great narration by Nicholas Smith.
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!
What a wonderful tale and read so well too. Gabrielle stands by his true love and won in the end!
