Meet the Author

Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) was among the greatest English novelists of his time. A naturalist infused with romanticism and enlightenment thinking, along with a flair for the supernatural, Hardy focused on class divisions and social norms. While his poetry is greatly admired, he is famed for novels like Tess of the d'Urbervilles and Jude the Obscure.

    It's good, but not gripping.

    Liked it, but didn't love it. I wouldn't read it again. It's not as meaningful and the characters as developed as an Austen novel. Still, it's good easy reading. Can easily finish the book in a day.

    engaging

    a charming love story, set against some intriguing analysis of the tensions of village and parish life in 19th century England. Yes, Hardy can smile at times.
