Far From The Madding Crowd

Thomas Hardys classic. Nothing profound, just a great story but like generations before me and since any form of literature was ruined at school by endless studying grammatical concepts, sentence structures etc. etc. as if the story being told was of a secondary nature. The result for many of us was a strong distaste for literature of any kind.
5 or 6 years after leaving school i picked up the copy above of Far From The Madding Crowd in a Penguin Classic edition because the wonderful painting on the cover had caught my eye and i started the first page and never stopped. In the 20 years since then i haven't been without a book of some kind close at hand and devour good writing like a hungry man.
