Penguin Classics presents Thomas Hardy's Far From the Madding Crowd, adapted for listening and now available as a digital audiobook as part of the Penguin English Library series. This abridged audio version is read by the actress Julie Christie.

Hardy's powerful novel of swift sexual passion and slow-burning loyalty centres on Bathsheba Everdene, a proud working woman whose life is complicated by three different men - respectable farmer Boldwood, seductive Sergeant Troy, and devoted Gabriel - making her the object of scandal and betrayal.

Vividly portraying the superstitions and traditions of a small rural community, Far from the Madding Crowd shows the precarious position of a woman in a man's world.

Part of a collection of vintage recordings taken from the Penguin Archives, the Penguin British Library series offers affordable, collectable, quality productions that are perfect for on-the-go listening.
