Publisher Description

Far From the Madding Crowd offers in ample measure the details of English rural life that Hardy so relished. The book might also be described as an early piece of feminist literature, since it features an independent woman with the courage to defy convention by running a farm herself. Hardy explores the proper basis for a happy marriage.

Excellent Classic Novel

This novel is classic Hardy. His excellent style and extensive vocabulary aids in his fantastic development of his vivid & complex characters, and aids in the reader's visualization of the scenes described in the book. This is a book worth reading multiple times.

AMAZING!!!

This is without doubt my favorite book I have EVER read! It should be right up there with pride and prejudice for standings! This book ties in adventure, love, betrayal, and death into a well written and amazing book!

Truly classic

The gripping tale of shepherd Gabriel Oak and the beautiful woman he loves, who finally after devastating events sees his worth! The English countryside of the 19th century is poetically described along with its colorful natives. Clear in this work is Thomas Hardy the poet and the architect. A very absorbing read.
