Random's Modern Library is reproducing this Hardy standard as a tie-in to a Masterpiece Theater presentation and offering a quality hardcover for a reasonable price.
Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
“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.”

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.
