    Eustacia Vye is cut off from the world in her grandfather's lonely cottage. Clym Yeobright seems to offer everything she dreams of: passion, excitement and the opportunity to escape. However, Clym's ambitions are quite different from hers, and marriage only increases Eustacia's destructive restlessness.

    Story

    Except for having my children read aloud to me, this was my first experience listening to a novel, and who better to lose my audiobook virginity to than Alan Rickman! Though I could be happy listening to his gorgeous voice reading a phone book, what I actually heard was worlds better. Mr. Rickman is, after all, an extremely talented actor, who narrates Hardy's story and performs the characters' voices with every nuance of feeling, expression and-- where appropriate-- in the dialect of the story's locale. It is a tender, atmospheric tale whose sympathetic characters are very much a product of the place in which they live. Mr. Rickman's performance makes this a very moving and memorable listening experience.
