I agree with Estee, lots of turmoil; which seems to be the way with Thomas Hardy. Pleasant narrator and interesting enough story.

This is the second book of Thomas Hardy after Far from the Madding Crowd and I am not disappointed well narrated by TH (can't spell his name).It is a good book worth to listen a lot of turmoil but at the end there was a reconciliation even it was sad that the good guy suffered and died from longing love.
