This carefully crafted ebook: "FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD (British Classics Series)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.
Far from the Madding Crowd tells the story of the farmer Bathsheba Everdene, her life and relationships - especially with her lonely neighbor William Boldwood, the faithful shepherd Gabriel Oak, and the thriftless soldier Sergeant Troy. It is the first of Hardy's novels to be set in a fictional county of Wessex in rural southwest England. The novel deals in themes of love, honor and betrayal, against a backdrop of the seemingly idyllic, but often harsh, realities of a farming community in Victorian England.
Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) was an English novelist and poet. A Victorian realist in the tradition of George Eliot, he was influenced both in his novels and in his poetry by Romanticism, especially William Wordsworth and Charles Dickens. Like Dickens, he was highly critical of much in Victorian society, though Hardy focused more on a declining rural society. While Hardy regarded himself primarily as a poet, initially he gained fame as the author of novels, including Far from the Madding Crowd, Tess of the d'Urbervilles and Jude the Obscure. Most of his fictional works were set in the semi-fictional region of Wessex. They explored tragic characters struggling against their passions and social circumstances.

"Far from the madding crowd" is the story of shepherd Gabriel Oaks and his love to the bewitching Bathsheba Everdene. While visiting relatives, Bathsheba meets their neighbour Gabriel. For him it is almost love at first sight and he offers for her within a week. Gabriel is an amiable young man, really down to earth he knows exactly what to wish for in life: he wants to change from shepherd to farmer, with an estate of his own, a suitable wife to build up a family. Gabriel is a hard working man, with enough confidence in his own strength. He gets his first set back, when Bathsheba, although flattered to have received her first proposal of marriage, rejects him. Shortly after fate turns against Gabriel: He loses all his sheep because of an untrained dog and must bury all hopes of ever becoming a farmer. But Gabriel does not despair - he leaves his home to look for work as a shepherd elsewhere. He finally finds new employment after estinguishing a fire in a farm building. The farm owner is nobody else but Bathsheba, who has recently inherited the estate after her uncle's death. Still secretly in love with Bathsheba, Gabriel must watch how she attracts other men. There is an elderly neighbouring farmer, as well as a dashing sergeant. Has Bathsheba matured enough by now to accept a man in marriage? Can she really make up her mind, who would suit her best? Is her choice a wise one, or may Gabriel still hope? Thomas Hardy gives an impressive description of pastoral life, creates amiable, forceful characters, main as well as minor, and succeeds in keeping the reader interested until the end.
