9780140431261: Far from the Madding Crowd (English Library)

Set in his fictional Wessex countryside in southwest England, Far from the Madding Crowd was Thomas Hardy's breakthrough work. Though it was first published anonymously in 1874, the quick and tremendous success of Far from the Madding Crowd persuaded Hardy to give up his first profession, architecture, to concentrate on writing fiction. The story of the ill-fated passions of the beautiful Bathsheba Everdene and her three suitors offers a spectacle of country life brimming with an energy and charm not customarily associated with Hardy.

Review:

- "Vital, passionate, spirited -- from the moment Bathsheba appears she is beguiling. You can denounce her faults -- she's selfish and capricious -- but it's hard not to admire her determined independence." --"Independent "
- "Hardy's "Far from the Madding Crowd" is the most romantic book I have ever read. I love the line where he says: "Whenever you look up, there I shall be -- and whenever I look up there will be you." It is very simple and understated, but also incredibly romantic.""" --"Independent "
