by Thomas Hardy


Lovely copy of this classic. Cover depicting recent movie with Carey Mulligan. I am a fan of the Julie Christie and Alan Bates film, along with the original music film score.

Far from the Madding Crowd is the first of Thomas Hardy's great novels, and the first to sound the tragic note for which his fiction is best remembered. Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) was born in Dorset, England, son of a stonemason. Though a gifted student, he was unable to afford to attend university. Lovely copy of this classic.

Far from the Madding Crowd (1874) is Thomas Hardy's fourth novel and his first major literary success. It originally appeared anonymously as a monthly serial in Cornhill Magazine, where it gained a wide readership. The novel is the first to be set in Thomas Hardy's Wessex in rural southwest England. It deals in themes of love, honour and betrayal, against a backdrop of the seemingly idyllic, but often harsh, realities of a farming community in Victorian England.

I bought this book because I was enjoying reading a library copy and the library insisted they wanted it back. Therefore, the poor rating has nothing to do with Thomas Hardy nor his book. It is a well written book and worth reading. My poor rating has to do with this particular copy of the book. It is unreadable. It would appear that someone took an electronic copy (There is a reference in the front of the book, under the 'copy right' (sic) about deleting which you cannot do with a hard copy.) of the book and copy/pasted it into a new format and then printed it. Coincidentally, according to the date in the back of the book, that happened on the day I bought it. The book does not contain a forward, any information about the book nor about the author. Neither does it contain any paragraph indentations. The entire 213 pages is one long, long paragraph! This makes it basically unreadable and is especially annoying during conversations when the first speaker's lines run into the second speaker's with only quotation marks between. It also makes for some really interesting hyphens in the middle of words where the word was once split between two lines but no longer is. I tried reading it, but it drove me nuts. I recommend you buy a different copy of the book.

It's a soap opera and was written as a serial for a newspaper. It was not written all at once before publication and it shows. A young man gets drunk and sells his wife and baby to a sailor. He goes to Casterbridge and becomes a businessman and then the mayor for a year. In the meantime he meets another woman and has an affair with her but does not marry her because he does not know what happened to his wife. Then about 18 years later, the wife and child show up, the sailor having died a sea. He decides that he should re-marry his wife so no one would know of the scandal. He meets a young man from Scotland who is perfect in every way and hires him as his business manager at his corn business. Then his wife dies. The daughter does not know what happened when she was a baby and think of Henchard (that's his name) as her stepfather. However when his wife died, he told her the truth, only to discover that his own child had died and the daughter he thought was his was actually the daughter of the dead sailor. Then he got mad at Donald, the young Scot, and fired him. Then his old girlfriend showed up and wanted to marry him. She had inherited money, lots of it, from an aunt and was now rich. He put her off a day too long and she saw Donald and it was love at first sight. So Donald and Lucetta, Henchard's old girlfriend got married, even though the daughter, Elizabeth, had hoped to marry him. Then all the scandal came to light about the sale of the wife and about the affair and Lucetta was so upset that she died. Meanwhile the sailor wasn't dead at all and he came back and looked for his daughter Elizabeth. And on, and on, and on, and on. I'm sure Hardy would be surprised to find out that people are still reading his soap opera. It would make a good serialized tv soap opera, and I would like to see the movie, but I wouldn't call it classic literature -- more like pulp fiction. A lot of it is boring.

Bathsheba Everdene is a self-willed and independent young woman who inherits her uncle's farm. An assertive and confident nature in a woman is a novelty in the rural parish of Weatherbury and Bathsheba soon attracts three very different admirers.

The only other book I've read by Thomas Hardy is Tess of the D'Urbervilles which I enjoyed because Tess was a well-rounded female character which I feel is a rare find in most books. Bathsheba too, is a well developed character and the reader gets to know her intimately as she comes of age in this sometimes funny and other times tragic love story.

Hardy is prone to waffling especially when describing architecture or milieus so the reader must be patient. The first half of the book is quite slow and I was tempted to give up on the book but the second half more than makes up for it.

The second half is tense and builds up to an unexpected violent scene and while the ending is predictable it is also satisfying. I recommend this book to those who enjoyed Tess of the D'Urbervilles.

This is not a review of the story. Hardy is one of my favorite authors, and this story is ranked very high in my list of go-to re-reads.

But the editing that went into the digital version of this classic is truly terrible. There are typos, and misspellings, missing punctuation and spacing. For three whole pages, I was baffled beyond words at the repeated use of the completely out-of-context word "toad", until I realized the word was supposed to be "road". Inexcusable. At several points, it felt like entire sentences were missing from the story, and several sentences ended so abruptly, I am almost positive there is more to it than what was printed on the page.

Never have I been so disappointed with a digital rendering of a complete work. There were so many unforgiveable mistakes, that there were days I could not even read the book, as much as I love the story. I 100% recommend this book to anyone who loves Hardy. But DO NOT purchase this version. Whoever edited this should be ashamed of themselves. "Professionally proofread," my foot.

This was a tiny difficult to get my teeth into at first, but stick with it and you won't want to put it down. Mr Hardy is a tremendous storyteller, developing his characters fully and letting you see them develop. I only wish I could write half as well and use words so wonderfully and descriptively.
You will be clinging to this story with a hope for a happy ending for its steady characters as well as laughing out loud at some of the supportive characters in this story.
I highly recommend this book. It's a definite must read and read again.
