Anna Bentinck’s narration shows how a classic comes alive when voiced by just the right performer. Her voice is a delight as she breathes life into a broad cast of characters. Tess’s parents pressure her into a world she has never known, a world of wealth and privilege darkened by malicious intent that changes the young woman's life forever. Hardy’s novel is gripping from its opening and offers an authentic look into timeless human themes such as loyalty and morality. Bentinck's crisp accents and consistently flowing pace suit the beauty of Hardy’s language, as well as the intricacies of his plot. With verve and personality Bentinck delivers a classy performance of a truly classic novel. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2008]
