9780140860887: Far from the Madding Crowd (Penguin Classics)

Capricious and handsome Bathsheba Everdene, the new young mistress of the Upper Farm, is a disquieting presence in the village of Weatherbury. Through her relationships with three suitors--the shepherd Gabriel Oak, the yeoman farmer Boldwood, and dashing Sergeant Troy--she discovers the difference between seduction and courtship; between infatuation and romance carved from "hard prosaic reality".

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 "
