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.

Loved listening to this story. Hardy captures the idylls and charm (and often mundanity) of countryside living - with all the intrigue and community buzz. Awesome narration too! In fact I got this title mainly because I saw Nicholas Guy Smith had narrated it.
What a wonderful tale and read so well too. Gabrielle stands by his true love and won in the end!

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!
