A little underwhelmed to be honest

I hadn't heard Hardy's poetry before and thought it was alright but the dramatic change in types of narrator and audio quality took me out of it a bit

it's nice to hear poetry performed

I jumped on this, because I love hearing poetry performed. Some of the readers did an excellent job, they could feel the iambic tempo of the verse, others didn't.
It's still good to have it, I'm glad it exists, but I feel it could have been read better.
Although I'm definitely going to steal the more theatrical style of performance for comedic renditions in future :)
