あらすじ・解説

When Tess Durbeyfield is driven by family poverty to claim kinship with the wealthy D'Urbervilles and to seek a portion of their family fortune, meeting her cousin Alec proves to be her downfall. A very different man, Angel Clare, seems to offer her love and salvation, but Tess must choose whether to reveal her past or remain silent in the hope of a peaceful future.

Thomas Hardy’s timeless masterpiece is brought to life in this new recording by Anne-Marie Duff (Shameless, His Dark Materials).   

With its sensitive depiction of the wronged Tess and powerful criticism of social convention, Tess of the D'Urbervilles is one of the most moving and poetic novels of all time.

A must read!

What an amazing read! My head is still reeling from this book and the unfortunate ending. First, this is a well written book with vivid detail. It is a book I could not put down.

Tess is unfortunately born into poverty, a family too large to support, a father who has grandiose ideas of himself and his hereditary and feels entitled and thus does very little to support the family. It is up to Tess, the eldest daughter to support the family. Her mother encourages her to endear herself to a “wealthy relation” which leads to sweet, innocent Tess’ societal downfall.

Just when you think she can overcome her past and find true happiness, the blows of life keep coming. The ending is not expected.

Phenomenal narration!

Anne-Marie just brims with compassion. Her amazing voice captures all the emotions throughout the story. So far this has been the only narration capable of rendering Tess alive and relatable. Definitely recommend it for anyone who has not yet been heartbroken by this tragic masterpiece.

Ugh. This dim witted girl.

You so want to love them but at halfway the main secret is still yet on the tip of her tounge and the simple minded man would interrupt everything. Like hush. Let her tell you. Interesting story tho

Thoroughly enjoyed

The struggles and injustice suffered by Tess, and the highs and lows of her unjustly tarnished life make for a fabulous story, some glorious evocative scenes and some heart rending moments for the reader. Loved it!

Almost perfect

Anne-Marie Duff is just brilliant at bringing Tess and her sad story to life. It’s heartbreaking and tough to listen in places, but a wonderful reading.

A beautiful and moving narration of a wonderful work of literature. Anne Marie Duff gives an exquisite performance of the accents , emotion and songs. Her Tess was vulnerable, naive and resilient

Beautiful narration of a tragic tale!

I read this years ago as a teenager but couldn’t remember it apart from the main characters even on hearing it. I think the delicate complexities in Hardys writing style, certainly for me, made it much more meaningful & moving having life experience of my own now. Also, even though times have changed I still felt the themes running through the story of sexual inequality & socioeconomic status are still extremely relevant and made me question ‘how much have things really changed’?

I found that I preferred the speed reduced to 0.9x or had to keep rewinding it but I think maybe that’s because I read quite slow but what a marvellous job Anne-Marie Duff did at the narration, from the accents, the different characters and the beautifully sweet singing of little folk songs throughout x I really hope she does more soon.

All in all, a tragic story of the injustices of love, perfectly written & wonderfully narrated I loved every minute of it by chapter 2 (stick with it till then!) and listened completely enraptured. I would highly recommend 10/10

Harrowing but hopeful

I have read this book more than once and get angry at the historical misogyny, but it is an excellent story and it was very well performed.

A lyrical sculptor! And the most trajic love story, based around an area of the south that I adore. Very well read.
