What the papers say:
'Hardy's novels are full of love for places and pity for people. If they are to be read aloud, then these things must be felt within the voice of the reader. I find them in Rufus Sewell's voice ... Sewell speaks to the inner ear and with the characters' talk heard as part of the story; their speech is differentiated, but only as far as is necessary and natural.' Gramophone 1/1/97
