Between 'Far From the Madding Crowd', 'The Mayor of Casterbridge', and 'Jude the Obscure' I am becoming a true Thomas Hardy fan!(more emphasis put on the latter two) Jude Fawley and Sue Bridehead really bring the book to life, but lurking in the background are numerous others waiting to uproot the lovers happiness. With the curious nature of Father Time and his sinister mother, Arabella, deceit is always around the corner. However, Richard Phillotson, takes a different approach to contol Sue by using his good nature and an unexpected tragedy against her. There are too many plot twists to go into too much detail, however, this book is definitely worth reading.

This is a very good book. Unfortunately, when Google scanned this one, their OCR software did a terrible job of translation. You're better off getting another copy elsewhere -- perhaps Project Guetenburg.

I can`t honestly say what attrached me to this book, nor why I continued to read it to the very end. The relationship between Jude and Sue is absolutely frustrating, mostly due to Sue`s capricious nature. There are times in the book during which I had the strong urge to strike her. I suppose Sue and her ideals were revolutionary in a way, but not as much as I was led to believe. Her descent in the end completely negates her earlier virtues, and I feel it was almost out of place. The character stopped being Sue. As a comment to the children being trivialized, I agree entirely. All the children, aside from Father Time, aren`t even named, so while the turning point in the characters` lives is affective, the children`s anonimity detracts from the reader`s sympathy. All in all, even though I wasn`t completely thrilled with this novel, it has some redeeming values, and I would recommend it if you had nothing better to read.

With some events that are shocking even today and its contrast between two very different women who consume the initially sympathetic Jude, this novel is fairly absorbing. It's a pretty quick read (though longer than I expected) and it was fun to give my husband periodic updates on what happened to poor Jude in the next installment....
